where creative minds can interact

Wiffledust Creative Writing Challenge #10-Physically describe your favorite movie star!



He was The Little Prince, with hair “the color of gold” and a laughter that bounced from the stars. Like The Little Prince, his eternal curiosity drove him to explore and ask questions, ignoring boundaries imposed by adults who didn’t understand. This could be seen in his searching eyes, reaching up through raised eyebrows as a child looking to his father. Occasionally his unearthly wisdom betrayed his youthful persona, revealed through a quiet smile that spoke to so many. His face could hold your interest no matter how long you looked. At once perfect and pure, serious and uneasy, troubled by questions that nobody could answer. Full of ideas, creations and dreams his body bounced at times with light-footed eagerness, and yet at others, it sloped into the corner through the pain of wanting too much.

In the end, you felt the need to hold him into your chest with a maternal comforting of a weary head. And yet, extraordinarily, his laughter and quiet smile can still be felt all around us. The Little Prince, who only ever wanted someone to draw him a sheep.

By the way, The Little Prince was also one of Jimmy's favourite books.

I just re-watched this video and remembered how I get goosebumps every time I see it:

Getting warmer!

Shall I tell you who it is?

It's not Jay North, but thanks for the guess!

I re-read what I wrote and I think maybe it's slightly misleading - the actor wasn't that young, although certainly not old. Not a young kid, anyway. Hopefully that hasn't made it even more confusing!

P.S. It's not actually The Little Prince ;)

Thanks Lisa! I only seem to be able to write on a whim. If I force it, it doesn't happen.

Any guesses on the actor? I can't remember if I've spoken to you about him or not.
