Personal Quote:

[during filming of an episode of Torchwood] Gareth (David Lloyd) and I "assumed the position" and went for it. The episode's director never called "cut". By the time Gareth and I were hitting the two-minute mark, my lips were getting numb and Gareth was getting twitchy. "You fuckers!" We both yelled in unison, when we finally realized what was going on and pulled apart. See more »
