ryan hawley is a gift.
if you want someone to cry, call danny miller. i don’t need ryan crying. that’s not robert sugden. i need ryan to keep doing what he’s doing; hit me in the solar plexus with the subtle, heartbreaking teary eyes and crushed expressions. with his protective body gestures and his inability to look anyone in the eye.
why do we need tears when we already have a robert who looks and acts like someone pushed to breaking point?
ryan hawley is magic with what he’s being given (which, admittedly, isn’t the best material at all) and he’s making me believe this at the end of your rope robert sugden, who has no idea what the hell he’s doing or where he’s going. take one look at robert and you know he’s fighting guilt and pressure.
remember those scenes where he wasn’t sleeping and he looked it? remember the scenes pre-aaron drug reveal? the scenes after? ryan hawley doesn’t need to cry to make me buy his emotional decline.
i will fight you on that
