Actor John Barrowman seems to be taking on something of a Captain Jack Harkness persona by acting like the true action hero that he plays in Torchwood.
Currently playing Robinson Crusoe in a pantomime in Glasgow, Barrowman was recently involved in aprehending a thief at the hotel where he was staying.
In true Captain Jack style, Barrowman chased the young thief after he had raided a couple’s room, making sure that he stayed where he was until the police arrived! The actor recalled the event:
“I grabbed the kid’s ankles, yanked him to the ground and then pulled him out into the hallway. I pinned him down.”
But as its Christmas, we have a nice twist to the tale in true Doctor Who/ Torchwood style: Barrowman, forgiving soul that he is, wants to offer the boy a job at the pantomime to help him out:
“Maybe he could work in the pantomime over Christmas to give him a sense of responsibility.”
Let’s hope it would put him off a life of crime!
