I have a confession to make: gingers are my thing. Perhaps it’s because they’re extremely rare where I grew up, but I’ve always been fascinated by attractive ginger men.
It probably also doesn’t help that my mom has always told me she wants me to have “cute ginger babies.”
So it should be no surprise that my biggest celebrity crush is Domhnall Gleeson.
My thing for Domhnall began when he was Bill Weasley in Harry Potter and I was a very thirsty teen who dug the whole “messy-haired emo werewolf” thing.
Then, of course, there was his first big romantic film, About Time, that I cannot watch without needing a cold shower and some alone time.
Even Star Wars’ General Hux does weird things to me.
So Run, his new streamy HBO thriller, is definitely my cup of tea. The show, created by Fleabag script editor Vicky Jones and co-executive produced by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (she also plays an upcoming role in it), premiered on Sunday night.
In the show, the brilliant Merritt Wever plays Ruby, a suburban mom who receives a texts that says “RUN” from her college boyfriend Billy. They made a pact 15 years before that if one of them texted “RUN” and the other replied the same thing, they had to leave everything behind and meet up at Grand Central Station in New York City to travel wherever it may take them.
