The "Brit a Day" series

What does a months-long parade of attractive British men have to do with fiction, you might well ask? These gentlemen have inspired some lovely scenes, part of the life I live in my head. Over time, some of these scenes reach out to one another and begin to form a story. For the present, each one of these pictures provides a writing prompt for me, a way to keep me writing with a sense of passion and narrative, even when the stories are not yet fully formed.

A Brit a Day [#541]

An often overlooked character that Henry Ian Cusick has played is Miles Longmuir, the caustic publisher who appeared in Season 2 of 'The Book Group'. The show is a British comedy that aired in 2002 and 2003. You can access full episodes at the IMDB here, and I highly recommend that you watch the whole hysterical [and sometimes pornographic] dozen even though HIC is only in the second season--

In 2003, Cusick was 36, and as Miles he was cast as father to a girl who was at least 18--a bit of a stretch. By 2006, he was in LOST, and this photo is from about that time--

Do the math--if I was 21 and that was my dad running down the road, I'd have to rethink my Electra complex.
