Lee Pace is a Monte Carlo Man

Lee Pace is a Monte Carlo Man

Pushing Daisies star Lee Pace attends a photocall for his hit ABC series on the third day of the 2008 Monte Carlo Television Festival held at Grimaldi Forum on Tuesday in Monaco, Principality of Monaco.

Lee, 29, discussed how Pushing Daisies has absolutely turned his life upside down: “I have been working for a while, but there’s something about being on a television show that does change your life. You get recognized in airports. You will be sitting at dinner, and there’ll be people across from you who are watching you eat and very obviously thinking about how they are going to tell their friends about spotting Ned. That’s really weird. It’s really weird. I can get really reclusive and just want to stay at home with my dog.”

When asked by E! if there a moral lesson we’re supposed to take from a show where the lovers (Ned and Chuck) don’t sleep together, Lee said, “That wasn’t the intention. Some people in America have interpreted it like that, and I don’t think it’s a bad thing. These are two people who love each other very much and choose to be together even though they’re never going to get drunk and sleep together. It’s not that show. I think it’s kind of sexy that they can’t touch. It’s the longest foreplay ever.” Ha ha.

    Loved him in MISS PETTIGREW LIVES FOR A DAY and he’s no slouch in THE FALL…but his Ned the Piemaker is the best by far.

    Ned to Chuck: I’m gonna see if I have any plastic wrap.

    Love the show… Totally original and Pace is perfect in the part. He has great chemistry with Anna Friel (Chuck). I love how they try to find new ways to kiss-saran wrap, beekeepers suits. Can’t wait till it returns in the fall!
