If you've not heard the Dustin Hoffman/Lawrence Olivier anecdote about acting from the set of "Marathon Man," hit up this message board at snopes: http://msgboard.snopes.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=32;t=000474;p=1
I's a classic.

I'll discuss offstage romances a different time.

I did not want to know that this webcomic featured same-sex couples! Unless I'm completely missing your usage of the word "swain" in that particular context! ;)

swain (Noun)
1. A country youth.
2. A young lover or suitor.

Ever since NPH got pulled into this reality (and away from his native one) it's been pretty obvious who he's with, I thought. And I figured that what with Olivier/Mirren and Dench's muddled opinions on K.B., it would be odd to just ignore the realities of Gielgud's and NPH's orientation. It's not that love and lust is the driving force of the comic, but relationships offstage are always a big part of theatre productions so it would be off to just ignore it.
