    Condolences to Rhys . I am sorry for losing his mother :( ., anyway, life goes on and he must be strong to go on. It’s so hard to lose somebody close, especially your mother. He got arrested the last week, but I am sure he’s a good guy, is just that he could felt that is not so easy to be famous.. and got a little drunk. Ok, I will change a little bit the subject and I will tell you that Christina Aguilera is stealing Britney’s Spears Thunder … you will understand what I mean, Eva

    Was he close to his Mother though? I’m positive he was in a childrens home or something like that at somepoint? A shame nonetheless.

    Jonathan was never in a home, he grew up in blackpool, on the northside of cork city( he was a true norrie) with his mother, according to news reprts on todays edion of the evening echo corks local paper they were extemely close, and she was very proud of him, she took no credit for his talent as she said she only gave birth to him, he did all the work . Apparently he started drinking again because his mother was ill,she died in the mercy hospital in cork i do know how she died but its not up to me to tell you as it is the families business. My condolences r wit the meyers o keefe families

    I sure had a good feeling about him. It was the same kind of feeling
    that I got about the really good actors. He sort of stays on your mind. When you see him, you sort of sigh a little, and say, oh, yes.
    He’s that good actor that seems to be headed to the top of the heap.

    Well, he sure is getting attention. That is half the battle. Now, he
    has to shape up, and do his best to please. I love him, so far. He satifies.

    Being close to my Mom myslf, I can tell ya that I can truly understand why he drank again. I guess that can ease the pain seeing somebody die you love.
    My deepest thoughts are with you, Jonny, and your family.
