Brothers With No Game’s Leon Mayne Snogs, Marries and Avoids

We decided to play a game and have a little fun with our directors based on that infamous BBC3 television programme called ‘Snog Marry Avoid’. Do you remember it? It’s a show where the viewer is presented with a poor suspect (er…victim?!) who is in need of a make-over. The general public would decide, using appearances, whether or not they’d ‘Snog, Marry or Avoid’ the person before, then after the make-over. We’re making this game a little more ‘intelligent’ and asking directors from our programme to rate actors of the industry. Enjoy.

I love her aura; she is an amazingly talented woman, beautiful, and has a very intriguing juxtaposition of fierceness and innocence.

Haha…okay this is weird. I’ve auditioned her for one of our production company’s projects before, so quick disclaimer, I wasn’t thinking about snogging during auditions…or before…or after.

I am not avoiding Susan for any other reason than that she looks like my cousin. So to marry or snog a cousin’s doppleganger is too weird. This isnt Game Of Thrones.
