She still had so much to learn about acting, and it's amazing how much she improved over the years. But the guys did a great job, and it worked. I love TNA, and I love reading all Jo's memories about filming and promoting the series back then.
''Don't look at me like that. I tripped you out of bed, not into it.''
Epic. Can you imagine Steed saying such a thing to Emma?! That's what I liked about Gambit, he's less gentleman like, and one hell of a womanizer.
I think Joanna handles herself very well in TNA. She certainly proved she had a brain in her head, as opposed to what Mary Selway thought. She was certain Joanna would be awful because she had been a model, and was just playing at acting. I love reading Jo's memories as well--she always has lots to say about TNA's filming, particularly about Gareth because they spent so much time together. I love that she was quick to point out when he died that Gareth "was a very good actor" who had loads of impressive theatre credentials before TNA--and indeed during TNA! He was actually still doing theatre work while doing the first part of season one, just like Diana Rigg. So he really was terrific.
No, Steed would definitely never tip Emma out of bed--and if he made a joke about it, it wouldn't be that one! Gambit isn't meant to be Steed, so he's not as suave or polished, but he's not ashamed of the way he is, either, and that makes him even more attractive. And yes, he likes the ladies, but he's also willing to be very loyal to one particular lady, if she'd only give him a chance...Gareth gave Gambit more dimensions than people give him credit for. He wasn't just a James Bond action man clone--he had a sweet, vunerable, funny side, and he fleshed that out onscreen.
