SOAP OPERA UPDATE
JULY 3, 2001
What do we love about daytime's latest Australian
import? The fact that Paul Leyden is an imprint for
quality imperfection; the lean actor with the golden hue
freely admits his vices ("I only smoke cigarettes when
I'm out." F.Y.I.: Camel is his butt of choice), is
notorious for blunt one-liners ("Award shows are more
fun the more drunk you are."), and by all accounts is a
fine human being with a remarkable affinity for music,
life, and people. To be in Leyden's company is a
defining moment in which one of the "beautiful" people
defies the vapidity often attributed to them. He's a
true friend, never posing as a pretty imitation.
Photographer Fabrice Trombert believes that "you can't
take a bad picture of this guy --- ever." We agree.
