Company magazine callously kicks the girlies' favourite Ewan McGregor out of bed with its new edition out today, and
invites us to turn our attentions to the new breed of Celtic actor pin-up material. Top of the list, and certainly looking
very fetching in his kilt (extra-long; we suspect he may not have top-class legs, the poor wee mite) is Joe McFadden. Lesser
known are Dugald Bruce-Lockhart, Cal Macaninch, and David Tennant, who have all done a bit of this and that, mostly on telly.
Amazingly, it appears only Macaninch has been in Taggart, the one-time nursery slopes of the ski resort that is the
Scottish acting profession. The times they are a-changing indeed. Company also tries its very best to dish the dirt, but it
seems the new breed are irksomely clean living as well.
There's our Joe, who likes nothing better than cooking for
his girlfriend Kirsty, or Bruce-Lockhart proposing to his girlfriend on the night they met, or any number of Welsh or Irish
thesps talking about "mutual respect, fun and affection rather than looks" or shutting their eyes when their actress girlfriends
do sex scenes.
