theblanknotebookFinnley Collins (My Mad Fat Diary, Spike Island, Upstairs Downstairs) has been nominated for an award at the BAFTA Television Awards Ceremony come the 18th of May.
Though some of us may remember him as his less than cheery character Newt from Hollyoaks when he was just a young lad, he is dually noted for what may be his post popular role as the quiet but caring (and quaintly named) Finn Nelson in the E4 series My Mad Fat Diary, as well as his role as the quick witted footman Johnny Proude in BBC One’s remake of the ’70s show Upstairs Downstairs. Surprisingly though, the nomination for Best Supporting Role is for the role of Joe Middleton, a farmer’s son who leaves his Derbyshire village to fight in World War I, in the BBC One hit The Villiage. When asked how he felt about the nomination, Collins flashed an enthralled smile;
"It’s great, you know? Whether I win or not, I’m absolutely honoured just to be nominated next to some brilliant people. It’s unreal that somethin’ I started after I took interest when I saw me younger sister havin’ a good time in it has taken me this far. It’s somethin’ I never thought would happen, just a bit of fun at the time, but I won’t ever take it for granted. It really is a privilege to see my name up there."
Wait, did I miss something or am I going blind? Why does it say Finnley Collins?
WTF? 0.oI had the same reaction
epicslicefinnn is there something we don’t know? is he really called FINNLEY COLLINS? hahahaha… No but seriously WTF?
DAFUQ IS FINNLEY COLLINS? PHIL COLLINS ILLEGITIMATE SON? *slinks away*
Are they serious?
Sounds like a character from a Jane Austen novel.
I have tears in my eyes from how absurdly far from correct that name is. Where do you get Finnley Collins out of Nico Mirallegro? Did John Travolta write this? Might as well been Adele Dazeem.
Hahahahaha I can’t!!
Must be a good actor if Finnley Collins is nominated to a BAFTA hahahaha
i laughed too much my pancreas hurt

Leader just can’t catch a break
-Sir, we’ve found this and we needed you to name it.
-But we figured we might as well just call it “Ananas” since the majority of the world refers to it as-
CRYING I HAVE TO REBLOG IM SORRY OMFG
LOL THIS IS THE GREATEST.
If this doesn’t perfectly sum up the English language I don’t know what does
#okay#so in one little exchange#edmund shuts down miraz’s attempt to patronize him#corrects his knowledge#states that he is king and thus miraz’s equal#makes a witty joke about his title of the Just that sails right over miraz’s head#humbly affirms peter’s higher authority#and finishes off by making miraz look like an idiot#in under a minute he reverses and takes control of the entire discussion#as easily and casually as if he’s having a chat with reepicheep#lewis says that he was the diplomat-king#and my headcanon is that he was head of narnian espionage as well#because look at this boy#how he dances with words#how he masters men three times his age#and tell me he wouldn’t be absolutely LETHAL
that’s my boy.
love this scene
