I couldn't decide which because I had to my name. At the audition I read from sides for Linda Lowy, the casting director, and I read with her associate John Brace.

I had seen the original on a VHS tape my girlfriend had.

Has the accident changed you regarding how you feel about life and your career?

Gale Harold: The accident was a definite mortality check.

Joan was also good friends with my friend Susie Landau Finch who had first encouraged me to consider acting, so that's how I began studying. GH: When that audition happened, I had already decided to leave Los Angeles. I was slightly traumatized by my 99 percent record of rejection. That film was a blast, but I was still trying to toughen up to survive the brutality of the other 99 percent.

I hadn't decided where I was headed but it was going to be either Chicago or New York. I didn't believe I'd ever get another job in front of a camera, and wanted to figure out if I could cut it on stage in New York or Chicago.

I thought Aiden Gillen was a total badass, but didn't think it would ever work as an American adaptation. How he came across was the result of those choices I made blended with the way the part was written, shot and edited.

Anyway, I'd vowed this would be my last Los Angeles audition. There were a series of callbacks which required a haircut (I think), and the purchase of a suit I couldn't afford. The strangeness of performing in a boardroom environment surrounded by executives was so intense I might as well have been walking through a remake of the video for "Ashes to Ashes" by David Bowie. IR: Once you had the part, what type of research did you do to portray the selfish, gay Brian Kinney? I kept returning to my belief that his sexuality was not up for debate by anyone, himself included.

We share enough taste in music and art to have had a real camaraderie, and luckily that evolved into a deep friendship. All I can say is that if you are fortunate enough to be playing a character who is developed enough that you can mine his or her identity-which isn't always the case-decide what or how the character behaves before and after sex.

IR: What's your advice to actors who will be doing same-sex scenes for the first time?

And that was only slightly less bizarre than an actor who was testing for the character of Michael telling me he wasn't going to kiss me just before we went into the room. GH: I had enough gay friends to have taken a few spins through the happy bars of San Francisco (where I lived for almost nine years) and Los Angeles. I'd worked and lived in mid-town for a few years, so a lot of the 'social' research was already done. It seemed to me that the most direct way to find him was to underplay all the cliches. That was very freeing, and it inspired me to deflect all speculation about my own sexuality.

I'm straight, but the character was too important to me to muddle his world with my private life. I think it may have helped to introduce Brian as a believable gay man. However it played, it's been out of my hands for a long time.

Afterwards I had to re-think life from almost every angle.
