Nathaniel Parker brightens up my day

By Roz Laws on Jul 3, 09 07:36 PM

There are some weeks when I really love my job, and this has been one of them.

I'm still not quite over meeting lovely Johnny Depp, but I spent this afternoon in the sunshine, in the depths of beautiful Warwickshire countryside, in the company of another charming actor.

It's a tough job but someone's got to do it.

The man in question was Nathaniel Parker, star of The Inspector Lynley Mysteries who was filming a new BBC period drama, Land Girls, filmed entirely on location in the Midlands.

Nat is rather posh but not in the least bit stuck-up. A thoroughly nice, articulate and witty gent, he even made me a cup of coffee!

It seems the rest of the country has finally caught up with what we knew all along - that the Midlands is THE place to film.

I understand one Birmingham hotel is currently packed full of stars, with the cast of Land Girls breakfasting on one table while Max Beesley and his Survivors co-stars eat at another. And, of course, Hustle is also coming to town.

We're where it's at, you know.

Nat fans all over the world have never thought of him as POSH, just a wonderful actor, humorous, and handsome man! I like this article about him.

Such a beautiful, talented man

Yeah, I remember him. In fact, I like watching "The Inspector Lynley Mysteries" drama series because of him. He's really a good actor. It isn't so obvious I am his big fan right? lol Matthew Mullhofer
