  1. Been following Jensen’s career for 23 years, and he never ceases to amaze me. Having met him at several cons and seeing how warm and humble and kind he is just blew my expectations out of the water and made me want to support him even more. Have never seen The Boys before, but will watch for him now and so excited for the movie as he’s wanted to be in a western for years!
