Beautiful People- May/June Edition

If you aren't already familiar, Beautiful People is a writing meme by Georgianna Penn and Sky, which asks questions about your character that you answer. If you're a writer, I highly encourage you to join! :D

Question for Georgie and/or Sky: can I do some of my screenplay characters as well? I'm running out of novel people..... comment and let me know or something ;)

Person of the Month: my hermit/monk character who never really made it onto the page, sorry buddy: Tuathal Gruffudd; Tully for shorts. Welsh on his father's side, Irish on the mother's. Hence the name....

Anyway, here we go!

1. What type of laugh does he have?
He's got a pretty throaty laugh, mostly a chuckle in the back of throat, but it doesn't sound like an old-guy kind of laugh. No offense to old guys. Anyway, Tully's barely 40, if at all....

2. Who is his best friend?
God. He's the only one he spends any time with these days.

3. What is his family like?
Before he became a knight and left his isle, before he became a monk/hermit, he lived in a very loud, large, happy family. His father came from the Cymru area and ended up in Ireland (could I say Erin??), so it was mostly his mother's side of the family that he knew. Red-haired, hot-headed bunch :P

4. Is he a Christian, or will he eventually find Jesus?
He's a Christian. :) He loves God very much, though I suppose his own thoughts get in the way of hearing Him sometimes... that's why Chance comes into his life.

5. Does he believe in fairies?
He doesn't spend too much time on that subject, haha, but I suppose if he saw one he wouldn't freak. He isn't fazed easy. ;)

6. Does he like hedgehogs?
Dunno. I'll have to ask him sometime. Are there hedgehogs in Britain?? If there are, then he likes them. 

7. Favorite kind of weather?
Early summer mornings or clear spring evenings. Calm, tranquil, and sunny. 

8. Does he have a good sense of humor? If so what kind? (Slapstick, wit, sarcasm, etc.?)
Rather dry, mostly. He can crack a real flat-out joke every once in awhile, but mostly he's pretty sarcastic and dry.

9. How did he do in school, or any kind of education they might have had.
Had to learn to read and write when he entered the monastery. Barely got a decent education, but he did get one, before he was kicked out..... we'll put it that way..... 

10. Any strange hobbies?
Not that I know of. I'll have to ask him ;)

Thanks for reading y'alls. ;)

Ya! I finally got around to reading The Directors BP post! This guy sounds awesome.

So, in answer to your question. Yes! You can totally use your characters from your screenplays! That would be awesome. Any character of your creation, whatever genre they may be in, feel free to use for BP. You can also use a character you've already answered questions for. After all, the questions are new every time. :)
