Hot Ginger of the Week: Toby Stephens
Husband clued me into this week's Hot Ginger. I had seen the face before but did not know the name.
Toby is an English stage, television and film actor who was once asked to become the next Bond. Considering how people reacted to casting the blond Daniel Craig, see Toby's own reaction after all the hubbub, "Can you imagine if they'd given it to a ginger? There'd be assignation plots". Well I am sure we wouldn't mind Toby.
Toby does a lot of TV in the UK and was actually in one of the bond movies too. He's also the son of the Dowager Countess herself Dame Maggie Smith, so look at that for thespian routes.
You can see him currently shaking his ginger locks on the BBC series Vexed.
