Written expressly for Pace by executive producer Bryan Fuller (“Heroes”), “Pushing Daisies’” protagonist Ned is a man who brings people back from the dead -- with a single touch.
I'll admit that I was late getting on the Lee Pace train, but now I'm completely enamored of him. He was my favorite character in Wonderfalls and absolutely blew me away in Soldier's Girl, which was his first major acting gig. And what's amazing is that the two characters were completely different. One was an atheist studying theology who was thrown into an existential crisis and obsessed with cow creamers while the other was a transgendered nightclub singer who fell in love with a soldier. I have high hopes that he will make Ned just as charming and engaging a character.
On the shallow end, he is tall and gorgeous. Initially I thought his eyebrows were scary, but they have grown on me. I love his dimples, and especially his voice.
