Tovey likes Being Human in scenes
Russell Tovey has revealed his favourite scenes in supernatural TV series Being Human are those when his werewolf character gets to enjoy a quiet cuppa on the sofa.
The actor has his fair share of blood-curdling scary scenes playing George, but he insists it's the quieter times he looks forward to the most.
"Every scene where we're together, where it's basically Annie [played by Lenora Crichlow] making tea and us chatting, are the favourite ones," he said.
Now in its third series, the hit BBC Three show features a group of twenty-something friends, including a ghost, a vampire, and Russell's werewolf, attempting to live normal lives despite their afflictions.
Russell said he approved of the fictional housemates' relocation from the iconic pink home in Bristol to a "huge", more retro pad in Barry, Wales.
"It's an old B&B called Honolulu Heights, a big Seventies throwback and it completely suits the friends who are living in this eccentric, ramshackle house, which has disgusted everyone else who's viewed it. They call it home very quickly," he added.
In the new series George and his girlfriend, fellow werewolf Nina, begin to enjoy a less rocky relationship.
"George and Nina are now a unit, they're very happy together for once," Russell said.
"This is their fresh start. They have their vampire friend [Mitchell played by Aidan Turner] and it feels as though they're really on their quest for happily ever after - and that's what George has always wanted."
:: Being Human returns for its third series on BBC Three tonight (January 23).
The day started like any ordinary Sunday…little did Russell realise…

Above: The view as posted by Marcus Whitney at his local pub.
Above: Sorry to disappoint dear Tovey fans but I thought that maybe an animated scene might be a little too “adult” for the blog as this scene does get a little steamy so I opted to display one still screen cap from Russell’s prolonged nude scene.
The wash up

23-1-2011 tomOdaighre: Being Human is pretty excellent. Apart from the bits where Russell Tovey 'acts'.
Dear Mr O'Daighre,
Many is the time I wish you would hold a plastic bag over your own head, then you'd be able to look in a mirror and see the same shade of green that we can see in your envy.
