A real man can be strong and tough and still be gentle, providing consoling hugs, kisses to heal boo-boos and offering comforting, tender words for those he loves.
Richard Armitage does a brilliant job of making John Porter believable as not just a tough, kick-ass SAS hunk, but as a loving dad, desperate to maintain a relationship with his little girl after his world falls apart. A dad who thinks of her when it looks like he may not get out of the latest adventure alive. A dad who cries with her even though they are thousands of miles apart . . .
Look at how he so fully embraces her, at the contented smile on his face. How can you not believe? And love him just a little bit more.
