Exclusive interview with Gale Harold about the "Queer as Folk" convention Rise'n Shine 2012


"You will always be young and you will always be beautiful. You're Brian Kinney, for f***'s sake!"

April 25, 2012 | Gale Harold is certainly not only Brian Kinney, he's also Charles Meade ("The Secret Circle"), Wyatt Earp ("Deadwood") and Kyle Riven ("Wake"), but Brian Kinney was such a groundbreaking role for the actor who was relatively new in the business. Not only could he accrue an army of devoted fans, he also breathed life into a character that is unique until today.

Here Gale Harold talks a little bit about the "Queer as Folk" fan convention Rise'n Shine 2012, which takes place in Cologne this June. This is the first time all nine actors from the main cast will appear together in public since the show ended in 2005.

1. All nine of you trusted Scott in setting the negotiations for the "Queer as Folk" convention in Germany in motion. Is this only possible when a cast still is really close and/or for a show that was so groundbreaking as "Queer as Folk"?

Scott is possibly one of the most honest people I've ever known. I would trust him with anything.

2. Did some time have to pass for you to want to appear all 9 of you in public and enjoy looking back together?

I know that for me the time that has passed has given me the distance to look back clearly. I was too close and needed some perspective.

3. Are you looking forward to discuss your character and maybe explore how you feel about your storylines from a more distant point of view now?


4. How does it feel to know that 6 years after the show there are so many people dying to see all you guys together again?

It's both very humbling and flattering.

5. Have you been to Germany before? Is there something in particular you look forward to?

I've been to Berlin, Munich and Frankfurt. I've always wanted to see the Rhine at night, and I'm excited to see the Cologne Cathedral.

Thank you so much, we are looking forward to seeing you in Germany!
