DOES ANYONE ELSE AGREED OR DISAGREE?
HE'S PERFECT FOR THE PART. HIS ACTING IS SUPERB FOR HENRY AT THE JUNCTION OF HIS LIFE, THE SHOW IS PORTRAYING HIM IN.
JOHNNIE MYERS WOULD OF BEEN PERFECT FOR A YOUNGER HENRY AROUND THE TIME HIS BROTHER DIED, AND HE DESIRED KATHERINE FOR HIS WIFE.
Steven's looks, physigue, and manner in my opinion are Henry.

I remember when he was in Leeds Youth Players. He was so talented back then so it doesn't surprise me that his talent keeps growing and growing. He was also secretly drooled over by MANY girls in LYP, unfortunately he had a high school sweetheart! It would be nice if he were more recognised for his talent than he is. One day................
