Thanks for another Tom Top Ten.

I agree with those who have said you can see his strength as an actor grow. It was a great idea to put these in chronological order.

I know I said this for your last theme and I'm guessing I'll say this for other ones as well, but it's in his eyes. He has such wonderfuly expressive (and beautiful) eyes. They can hold the danger and the grief.

Thanks again. Until next time.

I'm glad you enjoyed this one! It was difficult to narrow it down to just ten, so I picked the moments that spoke to me personally. It kind of surprised me as I went through the episodes to realize how much sadness Clark has faced over the seasons.

I do think he has grown tremendously as an actor. I think he came to the show with a ton of natural talent and great instincts, and now he is a master of his craft. I think he is especially gifted in going beyond the dialogue with subtle nuances in his looks, reactions, and body language. He's always acting and participating, even when he doesn't have lines.

Your observation about his eyes bears repeating, because it's so true. And I find that when I save screen caps just because they're beautiful, most often they are close-ups that feature his eyes.

Thanks so much for your comment!
