Ok God, you are listening to me. You’re hearing my prayers and my calls for Theo James to be in a television show or movie that I would actually watch. And hey, here you are – letting me wake up to news that you’re answering my prayers.
Now, I get that your significant other consistently disappearing is an issue. But hey, like sometimes it could be a blessing. Sometimes a girl needs her space. Then again, if my husband looked like Theo James… well think all the inappropriate thoughts, cause I would probably be wanting to do them all.
The show, which will air on HBO, describes Claire as, “fiery, clever and unstoppable — and for most of her life she’s had an amazing secret. Since she was 6, she has had an imaginary friend: a kind and funny man, sometimes old, sometimes young, who appears in the woods behind her house and tells her tales of the future. Visits from the mysterious Henry are the bright spots in the tedium of her childhood. As the years pass, and she grows into a beautiful young woman, she starts to realize her friend is not imaginary — he’s a time traveler, visiting from the future. And he’s not just from any old future — he’s from her future. Clare has a literal date with destiny. One day she’s going to meet a young man called Henry DeTamble — whom she’ll know very well but who won’t recognize her at all — and she will become the time traveler’s wife.”
James character, Henry, “has been a time traveler since he was 8. It’s not a superpower, it’s a condition — he can’t help it. Sometimes, when Henry is stressed or worried — and sometimes for no reason at all — he loses his grip on the current moment and falls naked into the past or the future. One minute he’s making breakfast, the next he’s naked at a hoedown in 1973. He can be stuck there for minutes or months, he never knows. His life is a roller coaster of constant danger and white-knuckle survival. Until one day he meets a beautiful redhead in the library where he works. Her name is Clare Abshire and though he’s never seen her before, she claims to have known him all her life. Finally, his curse has given him something good — and Clare and Henry are about to have the time of their lives.”
We will definitely be watching. Will you?
