In years past, there was an annual tradition that Aidan participated in with his fans through the now gone and much mourned aidan-gillen.com, from the years 2003 to 2007. The exchange bloomed from just a handful in number the first year to over 50 questions in the final year. (Yes, 50+ ... 2007 was an amazing and generous time!)
Not only did Aidan do this, he put great effort into answering well - at times at length - the questions his fans asked. And often, he replied with intimate truth and great humor. These Q&A's were not just another interview between actor and journalist. They were Aidan sharing a part of himself, his likes and dislikes, his life experiences and his past, in a way that will surprise and delight you.
I have always found them rather endearing, and VERY worth reading. And as there are many new Aidan Gillen fans in recent months that have shown themselves via twitter, trumblr, facebook and livejournal - I wanted to provide you a look into the man, and his generous nature.
