Google+: Daniel about being pale and filming The Tailor of Panama

Daniel posted a new unseen photo online at his Google+ page from him on the set of The Tailor of Panama from back in 2001. And then there is also a post he made about his latest obsession TED.

In case you haven't noticed I am very pale. 'Deathly pale' some might/do say. It's not a look I've deliberately cultivated but it's certainly not going to change soon. This photo is testament to the fact this has always been the case. On Tailor of Panama I was required to look like I had lived in Central America my whole life. This was no mean feat for our Make Up department. They tried to use fake tan on me and, for whatever reason, it didn't take. My pale skin was having none of it. So in the end they decided they would have to cover me, from head to toe, with tan make up each morning. This picture is the result. The tissues are in place to stop the make up getting on the costume - it wasn't a fashion choice. -Dan
