I googled for his image, and I have to admit, I can't quite see it... But of 
course, it could be because I've only seen him in The Lenny Henry Show, 
where he's very non-Howly indeed. Having read and loved The Scarlet 
Pimpernel, I could understand why someone who made a good Percy might also 
make a good Howl.

For some reason, my mind tends to go to a blonde version of Jason Flemyng – 
it's not perfect, but it's the closest I can get to my inner image – which 
I'm sure isn't much like anyone else's. :-)
