Gang... please. Enough about details of his home and where he lives. If you wish to stoke your curiosity further, please take it to PM.

Thanks for the interview details, frenchman.

Folks, maybe it's just me, but it seems that the talk about CT is getting a bit too focused on the minutiae of his private life...how much money he makes, why he's selling his house, whether he's in the stock market. I don't know many people who would discuss such matters with people they know. And those of you who have followed his career are aware that he guards his privacy, as well he should.

Perhaps it's time to consider stepping back from the man's personal life, and re-focusing on his performances?
But isn't all this part of fandom as well? Especially for a THUGS

Hopping into the salpool to drool over pictures and screencaps (an element of his work), discussing his performances and interviews (also part of his job), and general squeeing about how gorgeous and talented he is? Par for the course for the THUG brigade. But notice that it all has to do with his professional life, the part of himself he has chosen to put before the public eye.

Delving into the part of the man's life that he declines to present to the world at large can be crossing a line of propriety. Sure, he's a public figure, and a celebrity. But if he really wanted everyone to know the color scheme of his house's bedrooms, or how much money he has invested in the stock market, he'd be doing a big spread in a gossip magazine with oodles of information and pictures.

I freely admit I may be a little biased when it comes to actor privacy. Like CT, I live in L.A., the land of overly-intrusive paparrazzi and celebrity stalkers and restraining orders. And I'll never, ever forget Rebecca Schaeffer. I'm just saying that it's better to err on the side of caution. I'm suggesting that you respect the man's right to have a private life, even though he is a public figure, and celebrate that part of him that he has graciously chosen to give to the public.

It's the perpetual environment of THUG gathering places, since they tend to a great deal (thus creating a pool of, well, y'know) while waxing rhapsodic about their favorite subject.

Someone reported it here before and it is good. It is also good to have it referenced in the new Connor thread so it does not get lost.

Maybe CreationEnt needs to start putting "Warning, Slippy Floor" signs along the autograph lines for CT.

Speaking of Creation Conventions; is anyone planning on attending the New Jersey on Saturday, August 1st to see Connor Trinneer and John Billingsley? I plan on spending the day there with my daughter.

Re: T.H.U.G.S. Get Your CONNOR Fix Here!

Picture I took of Connor and his brother, Matt, at Seatrek 2007.



Connor explained they don't look like siblings becuse he takes after his mother's side of the family and Matt takes after his father. Tho' I do think they look alike around the eyes.

Thank You. I spent a fair amount of time setting that page up. When I get some spare time, I'm going to freshen it up a bit.

Re: T.H.U.G.S. Get Your CONNOR Fix Here!

I remember that video. Nice to see it posted again.Over at YouTube there's a Connor video from a New Zeland Convention where he talks about filming Termination Shock. It's a 3 part video and has him discussing his role on Enterprise and playing Micheal on Stargate Atlantis.
