Gorgeous pictures. Makes me happy! :melts: :melts: :melts:

I totally agree with what Kath said! I have often thought the same thing. It is like Mick struck a chord in Alex. Of course, Mick as we saw him was a combination of the broad character sketch made by Trevor Manson and the writers fleshed out and brought to life through Alex' skill as an actor, but I got the feeling that Alex really liked Mick and enjoyed playing him. Mick became one of those perfect examples when the end result is superior to the sum of the parts that make it up.

Josef, too, but that's another thread.

Well, that's hardly complimentary to Trevor (whose name is spelled Munson, by the way). Trevor and Ron Koslow were the creators of Mick St. John, and up through the middle of episode 12 they were heavily involved in the show, from writing through production. Yes, there is no denying that Alex embodied Mick in a way that still amazes me. But Mick would never have existed if not for Trevor and Ron. Alex would have never had the opportunity to play him.

:champs: So here's to Trevor, Ron, Jill, Ethan, Kyra, Sal Perez, Alfred Sole, and all the other wonderful behind-the-scenes people who worked to create that wonderful world where Mick lived... and still lives. :hearts:

Absolutely no slight against Trevor intended (and I know it is Munson, that was my talent for typos surfacing again)!!

I'm aware that Trevor created Mick Angel and that Mick St. John was based on Mick Angel. To any and all who had a hand in the creation of Moonlight

I didn't mean to snap at you. :hug: I just think Trevor deserves a huge amount of thanks for what he did. In addition to being the co-creator, he was one of the writers. He and Ron co-wrote the pilot, and the first episode, and Sleeping Beauty, and parts of many other early episodes. :hearts:

Don't worry about it, Alle. I work with lawyers. If I were sensitive, I'd be dead :rolling: :rolling: :rolling: :rolling:

It was Ron or Trevor I don't remember which one who said they knew Alex was their Mick the moment they saw and talked to him and they still had two more weeks of auditions yet to go through.
Call it destiny but Alex was ment to bring Mick off the pages and bring him to life on our TV's and to leave his mark on our hearts and in our memories. To live on forever never aging on our DVD's and in fanfic. Alex is Mick and Mick is Alex they are a one in the same beautiful fantasy to me. :hearts: I will joyfully follow Alex into what ever new characters he finds himself beautifully crafting to life but there will always be a part of him that is and always will be Mick St John my beautiful Vampire.

And I have many beautiful pics to prove it.

:giggle: You are welcome to share my quirky little obsession, Sweetie. :hearts:

Just to add to the acknowledgments tho... Lord KNOWS I take nothing away from Alex. He played Mick as, literally, no one else EVER could. And I follow him now, because of that talent. And am loving McG... A. Lot. :melts:

But aside from the creators, some props for the magnificence that was Mick must also go to those who put him INTO those cute little jackets and henleys and bat coats. And to those who shot those scenes pictured here. The creative team was amazing. Alex has rarely looked so beautiful, and no, it wasn't just the hair. :laugh:

Aye men.

What was so exceptional about Mick? So captivating, charming and downright enchanting?

Every blessed thing down to the last strand of hair (including the eyelashes, of course).

Everything from the heart and soul of the character to the voice (ah, that voice), to the looks, the clothes, the style.

Every. Blessed. Thing.

From time to time, we all encounter a character that will fascinate us, generally a facet of the portrayal, or the actor, or the writing.

With Mick it was the whole package. :melts: :melts: :melts: Even over two years later.

I have a coworker with that kind of hair, but the rest of the person doesn't live up to it in the looks department. :snicker: He's super nice, though.

Mick was one of a kind. They don't bake this kind of man twice. (Oh. Some hawaiian navy officer is said to have a similar physique, but I think it's only a rumor.)

:heart: :hug: Thank you for the pics. :flowers:
