I will never tire of explaining why I love Christian Borle.
It’s not just because of the arms or the abs or the voice or the Tony-winning talent. (Or the fact he plays sexy rockstar Shakespeare in tight leather pants and a rip-open doublet, though that is a plus.)
It’s because he is the real-life equivalent of that trope where the impossibly physically-attractive person of your dreams turns out to be just as big a geek as you are, plus he’s kind and funny and lovely to work with.
Every time I rewatch the Hard To Be The Bard video and relive that day, I’m reminded of the real reason why I’m so hopelessly infatuated with him.
He’s a giant geek like me deep down.
