Hello Rumbellers. How are you doing on this fine day?
Fantastic. :) I have a question for all of you regarding this fandom that we share. Obviously we all can’t get enough of Once Upon a Time, and Rumbelle, and particularly Mr. Carlyle. So I ask all of you: How did you first become a fan…
I saw Bobby in the late 90s in The Full Monty and Trainspotting, and of course I liked him immediately; I didn’t really recognize him on my top actors to follow list, though, until after I procured copies of Hamish MacBeth on DVD. Loved that show then, still love it today, and it kept Bobby on the map for me (so to speak). He was always a passing fancy after that, like — Oh, hey, that’s Robert Carlyle again. He’s really great, I should watch this movie. Then something happened to me: I call it “WHAT THE HOLY FUCK, SIR, PLEASE GO TO HELL,” but most people call it SGU. Dr. Rush was the reason I started watching OUAT, and that has blossomed into its own insanity.
yeah SGU was the turning point for me, too.
and your description, Cranky, is fantastic!
I would say Plunkett and Maclean in 2000-and-something. 2002 perhaps? It was definitely while visiting Galaxied, many moons ago :) I was aware of him from Hamish, bu P&M was the turning point because I always did have a thing for Highwaymen.
