    I like him to, he is quite a character likeable and approachable to, loved him in dr who, as for an idol, i'd say George Lucas, love most of his work and he has done loads for the work of film and tv production over the years, not to mention the star wars films

    I thought John Barrowman was good in Doctor Who and Torchwood and I agree he seems a likeable person from what you see of him. :)

    I agree he seems like a nice guy @kes2611. What situations did you meet him in?

    My idol would be my dad, and maybe some school teachers. As far as public figures go I don't really know. An idol being someone you worship, I can't think of anyone like that.

    I also am very fond of John Barrowman and I too have met him a couple of times.  John and Scott used to live quite near me.   I have a friend who lost her husband and so on the anniversary of his passing, she went to our local beach to have a private moment, when John and Scott found her and went out of their way to look after her.  I thought they were amazing.   About idols, I don’t think I have one, although I think Professor Robert Winston comes close.
