This man. There really are not words to properly describe how I feel about this man. Even though I never knew him personally, and he died while I was still very young (only five years old), Jeremy Brett has had a tremendous impact on who I am as a man, as a human being today. Even though for most of my life, I was only really aware of him as Sherlock Holmes, both his portrayal of the character and the man himself were, and still are a constant source of strength for me in more areas of my life than I can count. I remember as a teenager, reading that in his youth, he had suffered from the same speech impediment that I had suffered from as a child, and being terribly excited that I wasn’t the only one, and that if he and I could both overcome that, then surely I could take anything else that life threw at me. My logic, admittedly was questionable, but the principle held up, and in his own odd way, Jeremy guided me through my struggles with my sexuality, gender identity, and educational career choice, and managed to leave me on my feet. These days, it’s a psychological disorder, but with a little help in the form of a spot of inspiration from dear Mr. Brett, I think I can muddle through.
