Toby de Silva - Immortal (2012)

Removed from the catacombs of Rome in the 17th century, the relics of 12 martyred saints were attired in the jeweled regalia of the previous period and reinterred in a remote church on the German/Czech border

John C. Calhoun served as secretary of state and war and was a senator from South Carolina. He was also vice president under Andrew Jackson for a short amount of time until Jackson threatened to hang Calhoun due to to his advocacy of the Nullification Crisis of 1832.
He was one scary, intimidating man that supported states’ rights and slavery, claiming that it was a “positive good.” He also had a very sexy neck beard later in his life.

okay he is so freaking scary who would ever have a crush on him. I would pee my pants if I saw him in real life.

❝For 40 years I’ve been an actor on the American stage. My entire family is well represented in the entire field of show business. I’ve played this very city of Cincinnati for 30 or 40 years. I’ve never had a decent reception here. I’ve been waiting all this time, ladies and gentlemen, to say to you that you, the people of Cincinnati, are the greatest morons, the most unintelligent, illiterate bastards I have ever appeared before in my entire life. Take a good look at me, because you’ll never see me again.❞
