The RNA's best male celebrities

I have to say that the only writers' conference I attend on a regular basis is the RNA's. Great fun, interesting classes and nice to meet other authors going through the same struggles.

In a fun poll earlier this year, I voted for my favourite male celebrities, along with most of the other members of the RNA. So here are the results. What do you think about our choices?
We did have fun choosing and discussing this one.

The top ten male celebrities voted the Perfect Romantic Hero were:

1. Johnny Depp

2. Daniel Craig

3. Sean Bean

4. Richard Armitage

5. Hugh Jackman

6. Colin Firth

7. Alan Rickman

8. Pierce Brosnan

9. George Clooney

10. David Tennant

A second poll, taken by members of the RNA bravely admitting to being ‘over a certain age’, voted for male celebrities over fifty who’ve ‘still got it’. Remarkable for his appearance on both polls, Pierce Brosnan took the crownfor the over fifties by a huge margin.

The top ten Over-Fifty Perfect Romantic Heroes were:

1. Pierce Brosnan

2. Harrison Ford

3. Ranulph Fiennes

4. Bill Nighy

5. Liam Neeson

6. Sam Neill

7. Sean Connery

8. Peter O’Toole

9. Clint Eastwood

10. Omar Sharif

Pierce Brosnan is over 50? Sheesh, I'm getting old.
