I was wandering the depths of YouTube in search of new treasures and think I may have stumbled upon a scrubbed-up clean-shaven Nigel! Can't find any credits anywhere but I'm pretty sure it's him given who's singing the song this is a video for (Barnaby Weir). Not sure about this look myself - I like him all long-haired, scruffy and stubbly better!

Image

Here's a link to the whole video if you want to have a watch - that girl gets a pretty good cuddle from our Nige at the end!
(Sorry I couldn't figure out how to embed - someone enlighten me?!)

Yep, it's definitely him! Image

Woah, good find! That's a completely different look :D

Oh cripes, that's lovely! :shock:
Great find, Great H :wink: :D

And yes, I also generally prefer him scruffier and longer haired etc, but he looks all kind of dashing and um... yeah... :goo:

Actually, I found a few things as well... :)

From rehearsals for a play called The Trial of the Cannibal Dog in the NZ International Arts Festival, 2008

And this great pdf about the play Nigel co-wrote and performed several years ago called Wheeler's Luck:

edit: oh, and this one is good too :D

yeah... classically trained singer, actor, playwright, cellist, ukulele-ist(?)...

Reminds me of Bernard in Black Books "what did you say to her?! She thinks I'm the Renaissance!!" :lol:

Thanks. I promised Helgecko I would have a look-see for any Nigel pics, I'm surprised that I can't find more from the tour. :hrm: Oh! I think I remember where I stowed them. :D

Here's another with Age. 8)

I'm a BIG fan of the beard and crazy long curls look on Nigel. Specifically this one:

I normally am not a fan of the big beard on anyone, but the look certainly works for him. Or as Red said, humina humina. :D
