Well, well, you serbians are definitely on the Map (tennis, movies, et..).ReplyDelete
Judging by his looks, the serbian actor Ivan is perfect for the role of the irresistible Cassanova.
His embroidered outfit is as seductive as he is. He's going to break a lot of hearts among the female viewers of the series.
Well, since Russia and Serbia are sister nations, Serbian actors have been working a lot over there in recent years. Ivan's wife is a pop singer, she represented Serbia at Eurovision back in 2008 when it was held in Belgrade.Delete
A grand tale to be told I think!ReplyDelete
As grand as the Russian Empire indeedDelete
Too bad Ivan Bosilychich is off the market. I'd encourage you to hunt him down for a little meet and greet. He's quite eye catching! Makes me wonder what other eye candy you Serbs are hiding from us :)ReplyDelete
Everybody here thinks he's gay, actually :) although he has a wife and a child, he just emits those vibes massively.Delete
Maybe he's bi? Everyone except Allison thinks her boyfriend is gay too. His mom even stuck a pride flag in his flower bouquet at graduation. Mamas are usually the first to know these things. But, he still denies it and so does she.Delete
Maybe she prefers it that way :) Lots of women prefer gay men to straight ones, who are we to judge :) Wait, you mean the boxer guy? It is certainly better to have a platonic love at her age, won't get hurt that much.Delete
