In an effort to help CTU readers learn more about each other, once a month I profile one special Channing Tatum fan on the blog and give them the "Fabulous Channing Tatum Fan Spotlight" award.
I am excited to announce that this month's Channing Tatum Unwrapped Fab Fan Spotlight is dedicated to Fabulous Channing Tatum Fan Adriane from Salvador in Brazil.
Since Adriane does not speak English, I have tried to translate her answers. Hopefully, I've been able to capture the gist of what she is so eloquently trying to say. Here is what you should know about Adriane:
Favorite Channing Tatum Picture and Why?:
This photo is spontaneous, simple, natural, and shows the look that I most admire in Chan.
Favorite Channing Tatum Movie and Why?:
My favorite movie is Step Up. It was because of this movie that I first started to admire Chan. His performance was excellent, and I really liked Jenna and Chan as a romantic pair. It is a sweet film that contains drama, dance, and romance, and it always leaves me wanting more.
Favorite Channing Tatum Scene and Why?:
I really liked Channing in the scene in 'A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints' (Santos and Demônios) after Dito's (Shia Labeouf) father Monty (Chazz Palminteri) has had a heart attack. When Antonio (Channing) sees the person he most admired almost dying, it was a wonderful and strong acting moment for Chan, because he showed concern, anger, and despair all at the same time. His performance shows how much talent he has. I am very anxious to see all his current and future movies.
Favorite Channing Tatum Movie Quote and Why?:
My favorite movie quote is from 'Coach Carter' when Jason Lyle (Channing) sees his friend and teammate Cruz (Rick) struggling as he tries desperately to get back on the team by doing the exercises Coach Carter (Samuel Jackson) asked him to complete by a certain deadline. Lyle says, "You said we're a team. One person struggles, we all struggle. One person triumphs, we all triumph.".
Because everything in life is difficult, I believe and trust that a simple gesture and truthful words can change our lives. He showed not only to the players, but also to Cruz, that one needs the other. Everyone can win together and achieve their goals. He gave a great lesson in morality. In real life, sometimes we need a real friend to show us that sometimes we cannot do things alone. We have to trust, and trust is not given, this is won.
Favorite Upcoming Channing Tatum Movie and Why?:
My favorite upcoming movie is 'Battle In Seattle'. This is a movie that leaves me with great expectations, because it features a real-life story. Lately, Chan's movies are more and more significant. I'm sure it will give an accurate account of the events, plus the character is very different for Chan and will show his versatility. The story of the film is very good, and he is acting as a police officer which is something that, for me in particular, I was hoping for. I'm counting down the days until I can see the film in Brazil!!!!!!
Have you ever met Channing?:
Unfortunately not. If I met him, I would be a very happy fan, because I admire him so much. He is a beauty to the world, literally speaking in every way. I know that if I did meet him, I would be speechless. Unfortunately, I do not know how to speak English, but I know that the one word I can say is "thank you".
Why are you a Fabulous Channing Tatum Fan?:
Well, this is a response that requires much attention. I imagine that we all consider ourselves Chan's #1 fan in our own way. He's given us the opportunity to have wonderful moments. His charisma is unmatched. He is not only beautiful outside and inside, but he is also respectful and treats his fans with so much care. Even though I don't speak English and have to learn about him and his films through the help of a translator, I consider myself a big fan.
Why does Channing Tatum Unwrapped think that this fan belongs in the Fab Fan Spotlight?
Adriane has been reading CTU for quite a while now, and incredibly, has not let the fact that she does not know English very well get in the way of her getting involved in the site.
I've always been impressed at how she goes all out for the various projects we have had at CTU. You can take a look at her elaborate and impressive Christmas present submission on the right as one example.
I was also very impressed by Adriane's thoughtful answers to the Fab Fan questions above, and hopefully I did not butcher them too much as I tried to compensate for the translator that can sometimes misinterpret American vernacular.
Most importantly, anyone who takes the time to translate the site and their submissions to CTU is definitely going above and beyond the call of duty as a fan as far as I'm concerned, and it's one of the many reasons why Adriane deserves this Fab Fan Spotlight.
Thanks Adriane for letting me profile you and for taking the time to share all of your info with the other readers!
As the subject of the Fab Fan Spotlight, Adriane is able to pick a custom-made poster of Channing Tatum courtesy of Channing Tatum Unwrapped! Adriane's Fab Fan Spotlight prize will be sent to her.
Finally, Adriane's Fab Fan Spotlight profile will be added on the right side of the blog so other Channing Fans can learn about her from any page on the site. Feel free to send your congrats to Adriane in the comments on this entry!
