1. His Romantic ‘Noah’ Trailer Is Causing a Stir

Booth does like challenging roles, and playing the gay Culture Club singer was no exception.

In the British TV series, Worried About the Boy, he took on his first leading role, and he was committed to putting in the work.
He told V Man:

F**k it up and my career would be over before it even started. I knew I had to take it seriously and commit 100 percent.

The process included enduring 5 hours of makeup each day and having to wear silk kimonos and vinyl bodysuits.

He told GQ what it was like to play him:

That was not only playing somebody that everyone already knows, but also that everyone knows exactly what he looks like and how he acted. Lots of his life is documented. That was an extra challenge.

Boy George will forever hold a special place in his heart. He told V Man
