He was magnetic. So gorgeous that it almost hurt to look at him. It's worth watching these scenes from ATWT just to see his animal magnetism. It's especially worth watching from 2:34 to just after the 3-minute mark just to hear him talking about being in the middle of a field, "...buck naked with the lightning all around me..."
