Barbara and me (Cristina) got to know Eric Winter watching Moonlight, we liked how he played the part of Benjamin Talbot, an upright public prosecutor attracted by the proactive Beth.
From that moment we desired to know him better, looking on the web and watching the movies, tv series he played into; we always enjoy his performances, he can take any kind of role.
One day my friend Barbara told me that we could could create a page on Facebook dedicated to Eric Winter, and we did it; but it was enough for us, we wanted to do more and so we decided to open a blog.
It’s our passion looking for news to publish, because Eric is a handsome man and also a beatiful person. We do not know him personally, but we can tell he does everything heartily.
A few months ago, something wonderful happened: I have been given the opportunity to administrate Eric Winter Fans on Twitter; a great joy, a wonderful gift and a way to communicate directly with him. He has proved to be very kind and sweet (we had no doubts though) and now he has granted us an interview.
Eric Winter thank you for your time, we love you.
