Scott Foley

Scott Foley  Born 15 July 1972  Actor/Director/Writer

SO after many requests had to put Scott higher up on the list! So here you are


Scott Kellerman Foley was born in Kansas City Kansas (been there! ha) and graduated from high school in St Louis Missouri.  He used to work in a cookie store and use to live off cookies since he was broke.  He has two younger brothers and sadly his mother passed away when he was 15.

His breakthrough role was in Felicity where he played Noel Crane.  He was actually cast to play the role of Ben but since they hadn't found anyone to pay Noel yet, Scott was asked to take on this role.  Though he had been in other shows before this such as Sweet Valley High.  Remember that show we used to get it Saturday mornings.

Scott said he was lucky enough to know what he wanted to do when he was growing up, "I think one of the hardest things to figure out in life is what your calling is and what truly makes you happy, not what you want to work at, but what you want to do."

As well as Dawson's Creek, Zoe, Duncan, Jack and Jane, Scrubs, House where he played a baseball player and as I tweeted about this role of Hank, he was really put through the wringer in this! He was in Cougar Town where he met up with his co-star from Scream 3, Courtney Cox.  Law and Order: Special Victims Unit.  As well as Grey's Anatomy and True Blood.  Oh the bloody fangs were probably out in this as he sent our blood pressure soaring! On filming True Blood he said, " was very secretive, very sexy, a lot of blood and fangs."


For his role in Scream 3 he was nominated for a Teen Choice Award.   Perhaps his other break though was also in The Unit where he appeared in the entire 4 seasons.   He is not just a pretty face and has proven himself as a quality director, directing The Graduate episode of Felicity and an episode of Monk, season 3's Mr Monk and the Employee of the Month, in which his brother, Sean made an appearance.  Scott is set to direct Ward's Wife which he also wrote.

Plenty have swooned over Scott, though he remains modest as far as his looks are concerned.  Hey you don't need to be cos really he is gorgeous and has women swooning.  He looks great in whatever he wears, even baggy T-shirt and jeans and even when he's sporting that beard or sexy hint of stubble.

Presently he is breaking hearts on and off screen in Scandal where he is cast as Captain Jake Ballard, hey there Scotty, looking hot in uniform. And don't we all love a man in uniform!  Be still my heart!

Scott: "The older I get, the more I become an apple pie, sparkling cider kind of guy."  Ah so cute!  He's soo down to earth, sweet and oh those gorgeous eyes of his!  Here's hoping his star keeps a risin'!

Shemar Moore

Shemar Moore  Born  20 April 1970  Actor

Here's another special request (be patient I'm getting to them all! ha)

Shemar Francis Moore was born in Oakland California.  Son of Sherrod Moore and Marilyn Wilson.  His mother is of Irish and French-Canadian descent and was a teacher who worked in Bahrain and Denmark. Shemar travelled with her when he was younger due to the civil unrest in the 1970's, especially as inter-racial marriage was considered unheard of.  Sadly his mother developed MS and Shemar has been instrumental in highlighting the debilitating nature of this disease and in fundraising.  This involved him cycling to raise money and awareness into research.

Shemar majored in Communications at Santa Clara University and to pay his fees he took on modelling jobs. His dream was to play baseball.  From 1984-2005 he played Malcolm Walters in The Young and The Restless but the role that would propel him to stardom was that of FBI Special Agent Derek Morgan in the break-out Criminal Minds.  His use of "baby girl" and other choice words in the show directed at fellow character Penelope Garcia in Criminal Minds, left fans craving for mo[o]re (pun intended?)  Leading Shemar to call his fans, "baby girl" in real life too.  Though the phrase he uses sometimes that makes me laugh is "Sugar tits" cos only this baby boy could get away with that!! ha.

His sexy shots and photoshoots proved to be popular and still are.  He has also appeared on the cover of Men's Fitness magazine in 2009, showing off his pecs and physique!  As some would say he has a body to die for!!  Shemar has his own distinctive style when it comes to clothes and also sports tattoos, as if you didn't know.  He has his initials, 'SFM' on his left arm and the head of a lion on his right.

He has won awards for The Yong and the Restless including for outstanding actor in a Daytime Drama Series and Outstanding Supporting Actor.  He has starred in many TV shows and films, including guesting in Chicago Hope, though that was in a season 4 episode and long after his Criminal Minds co-star Thomas Gibson had left the show, otherwise they could have had a Chicago Hope reunion on set!  I like when that happens.  He was also in Birds of Prey and finds "acting is therapeutic."


Shemar always finds time for his fans and followers and is extremely active on Twitter and Instagram.  His Baby Girl wear has raised plenty for charity and continues to do so. It's not hard to see he has a heart of gold and is very friendly and down to earth too.

Some words of wisdom from Shemar: "I'm not shy but...acting is a very vulnerable experience, and you've got to be really confident to put yourself out there to be judged."  He has also said, "I still have shy qualities but nobody would believe that, just because we're in the forefront and I can talk a lot of mess and I can run my mouth."
