I have to say that I am disappointed that time has affected you the way it does the rest of us mere mortals.
My teenage infatuation was first peaked with your young Dudley followed by your spectacular Wesley. Who knew the simple phrase, "As you wish" could hold so much promise? No one else could have played it like you. No one.
Time passed but the twinkle in your eye, your constant knowing smirk, and your smooth BBC cultured voice remained constant. Whether your were dancing in tights, chasing a storm, or wooing uber-sexual Lucy, you were suave. In character yet always Cary Elwes.
The passage of time slapped me in the face while watching Psych. What happened? You are not allowed to be almost fifty. You are required by the law of romantic daydreams to remain forever between 28 and 38. It was almost difficult to enjoy your Despereaux. Perhaps it was the reminder of my own aging that bothered me more than the fact that you no longer have a 30" waist.
I may not know how to pronounce your name, I remain faithful to the crush of my youth. I will still use you as a basis for character development, but I will probably stick with the earlier version of you instead of the current. In case you are curious, you have been cast as the recurring character of Kit Hatton.
