Why is he Crush of the Week?
Errrr have you seen him?! Tall, Dark and very handsome. Santiago is the epitome of male sexiness! He just oozes charm and hotness and he is so lovely! Seeing him in interviews he is down to earth and charming.
He has a swoonworthy smile and them lips… Hot Damn!
Yeah he’s married… but girls we have our dreams to keep us warm at night.
I first saw Santiago when he played Sir Lancelot in Merlin and god I was in love from that money. He was Lancelot and I’m gutted that he wasn’t in it for long! Lancelot is one of the main characters in the legend and yet he was hardly in it. But while he was there he was amazing.
Santiago has the looks for medieval fighting tv/movies. His looks and suave attitude makes him the perfect knight, fighter, prince etc.
Hot Damn Santiago is HOT! And so worthy of Crush of the Week 🙂
