Trust that glamorous British dress designer Betty Jackson to produce such a handsome son. I present to you an especially handsome man named Oliver Jackson-Cohen, who is a very hot British actor with a wealth of experience in television and film. In late October, he started to appear in the epic new television adaptation of the iconic horror story "Dracula" for NBC.
After being inspired to take up acting by watching his mum’s best friend Jennifer Saunders on the Absolutely Fabulous set, 21-year-old Oliver became a star himself as the ardent young gamekeeper Philip in BBC’s Lark Rise to Candleford – the cast of which was led by Jennifer’s Ab Fab co-star Julia Sawalha and comedy partner Dawn French. My local PBS has started airing the reruns of Lark Rise, have you seen it? It's a great show.
Thus far in his career, Oliver has starred in some of the best-loved television dramas in the U.K. In his first major television role, as said above, he played lead character Philip White on the BBC's period drama "Lark Rise to Candleford," an adaptation of Flora Thompson's autobiographical novel. Following this, he was accepted into the Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute and relocated to New York to continue his studies as an actor.
I have known of him for some time, but Lark Rise and Dracula are my first tastes of him. Dracula is pretty good, not as addictive as American Horror Story, but it is pretty well done. It is starting to grab my attention, but most of it is due to Oliver, ohhhhhhh my! If he could be my next husband, maybe this minx would settle down!!!! He could definitely keep me warm at night. And if Dracula doesn't work out, maybe Downton Abbey could find a place for him in the manor house!!!! I know when he's on screen my mood enhances!!!!
