Johnny picks up the scissors and enlarges the eye holes in his balaclava. He’s not a pretty boy but no problem. Our ambitious lad knows what he is going to do. He has abundant thespian DNA in his striding, gesticulating bones.
He was inspired by the luminously beautiful Agnetha posed in a glass case in the lobby of a gilded and gaudy hotel. When a reporter asked the lovely girl if the staring crowds were a problem, her accomplished laugh rang like little silver bells. “I am actor, darling,” she said. “I just love being looked at.”
Here’s Johnny!
