    I have no idea who this guy is, but I guess he’s cute. However, he needs to learn how to dress, his jacket is way long and his pants look too big for him… I’ll not touch on the shirt/tie combo :/ He shouldn’t skipped Nobu, and went clothes shopping instead.

    He’s a really good actor. About threee years ago, I saw a movie on Cable of his called Solomon and Gaynor and he was just amazing in it. It was a very, very sad movie, but definitely worth seeing.

    Ioan Griffuld is Mr. Fantastic of the Fantastic Four. He was in the “Justice League Movies” and Horatio Hornblower. He is a gorgeous man. He made a heavenly Lancelot in the King Arthur movie of 2004.

    Gina, why is he considered ‘not nice’? Any info babydoll?

    He is super nice. I have met him and spent time with him last year. He is a great guy who adores his wife. Yes, he did shut down his fan site because people were writing incredibly cruel things about his then fiancee on there. Wouldn’t you want your man to stand up for you and defend you if people were saying horrible things about you? Keep in mind, he was funding the site out of his pocket. So, he pulled his funding. I think that is fair, when the forum becomes all about bashing your wife-to-be. Bunch of jealous, catty women, if you ask me. Good for him! He was a true gentleman to my friend and I when we met, and he adores his wife. My husband and I have kept in touch with him and he has been generous enough to contribute to a charity event we are organizing. We are traveling to LA in a few weeks and hope to meet up with him and his wife for drinks.
    I do have to agree with the shirt/tie combo not being the best, however, but as for character, he is a really nice guy.

    Dear CA #19:

    You only met the guy last year. I do hope you get to have drinks with him. Maybe under the influence you can get the truth out of him. Hah, fat chance. Beware, he and she can drink Simon Cowell under the table.
    The FACTS are that there was absolutely nothing cruel written about his wife on that site that he now tells everyone he funded — not from the start he didn’t. fund it. Nothing was EVER allowed on there that insulted her. You know what got her knickers knotted? A comparison of her movies. She got on there and accused someone of posting comments on a TOTALLY DIFFERENT SITE. IOAN himself made her sound like a shrew on the Craig Ferguson show. You can watch the vid. When he says she screamed, “I HATE YOU! YOU’RE SO BORING!” the audience gasps. When people commented about that she got her claws sharpened and went to town.
    Yes, he had every right to pull the funding, but he could have done it without calling ALL his fans “despicable and vitriolic”. It could have been done with a “thank you but we’re closing now.” No… AND he only funded the site from his 1st Fantastic Four movie onward, a total of TWO YEARS when the previous SEVEN YEARS the fans had all chipped in. THE FANS made that site awesome with loads of pics and videos they all culled and posted from his obscure really good stuff like Solomon & Gaenor and Another Life and Very Annie Mary… but he never once thanked them for all the good PR they did for him. Are we bitter? You bet your ass–and it has nothing to do with being jealous of his wife. It has to do with ethics. You people who come in late and think he’s all so wonderful because you drank with him or he sends you stuff because no one wants to buy any of it on eBay have no clue of just what he destroyed, Talk to people who followed him from the start and supported him and got his name out there and copied hundreds of tapes from UK PAL to US VHS so people all over could see his work in The Gathering and Forsythe Saga and Man & Boy and Pobol Y Cwm and Love in the 21st Century — and ask HIM to show you the thank you posts he made — What??? There are none?? Hell no! But he’s such a nice guy!! Yeah, right. He lied about the site for two years, kept his involvement totally secret, deliberately lied about ever going on there, and never once thanked his fans for the support when they voted him up in People for Sexy Import or showed up at The Disney Store for that stupid dog movie that sucked but we went to show everyone he had fans. We went to premieres and appearances all over the world to show the suits that he had a following and could be bankable and what thanks does he give us? He LIES to us and calls us all despicable and then destroys the site we had built for him from 11 members in 1999 to over 1000 when he started funding it in 2005. By the end there were over 1400 members on that site, who are now all labeled as “jealous, catty women”– your words. Really? All of us? You have no idea of the community he destroyed, what he nuked into oblivion “all for the sake of his lady love”. THAT’S what pisses us off. All the work and yes, love, we poured into that site for seven years never knowing he started funding it the last two because he told the webmistress to keep it all secret. That site had become our home, our meeting place to talk about our lives and our kids and how we loved Hornblower and did you see Jamie Bamber’s new movie and how about Robert Lindsay’s funny turn as a dentist on BBC and how are your college classes going… Destroying THAT was what hurt and all you newbies have no clue at all at what a two-faced ungrateful man he has become since he met and fell in love with his wonderful wife while she was living with a Picasso heir. Those are the facts, you can read about it in her interviews from 2001. Oh no, that’s right, he destroyed the archive files on the site… oh well, I’m sure he meant it in a nice way.

    In response to #23 – that poster is 100% accurate in their description of Ioan and the events that lead to the demise of his website. No one on IOL – NO ONE- was ever cruel, mean or anything like that. It was the most benign vanilla fun site with great members who supported him at ever step. Even further – these fans helped nurture his fledgling career. Not once – never once did he ever thank his fans. OK – he had to support that albatross around his neck cyber stalker wife. I commend him but….he cut his nose off to spite his face with that horrible letter to his fans – the one and only communication in 10 years.. He and his wife made very serious and very false accusations against innocent people that truly loved him. As for his fans being jealous ugly cows – they are published authors, actresses, high level executive, doctors, rich house wives, loving parent, creative thinkers, productive people – everything Alice is not. She is actually the jealous one. He really hurt alot of people. Unfortunately for Ioan the worm did turn… welcome to obscurity Ioan – you belong there.

    Thanks for elaborating and explaining, cnuchiwr and spylite. Many people know that Ioan’s wife has been posting on the Internet Movie database boards for a long time and attacking not just Ioan’s fans but she has even gone so far as to insult Ioan on at least one occasion. If anyone is catty and cruel, it is Ioan’s wife
