HAVEN star ERIC BALFOURLast night I had a dream about HAVEN star Eric Balfour.  There – I admit it.

I was chasing him trying… trying to retrieve an envelope containing secret documents…somehow he managed to escape my pursuit by jumping on an elevator…then my alarm went off.  I’m certain it had something to do with watching the above trailer for tonight’s episode of the Syfy/Showcase seriesentitled “Business As Usual” just before bed time.

What?... Yes, there have been other dreams, but it’s not that kind of website.  Here’s what I will tell you – I’m not the only one who’s dreaming about Eric Balfour.

Eric Balfour's Twitter avatar @EricBalfourAll you need to do is search his Twitter stream @EricBalfour to see the man has fans!

Seriously dedicated fans, and he’ll be the first to tell you they are “the most amazing and supportive fans anywhere”.

His Twitter bio reads “Trying to use what little influence being an actor has given me to spread the word about social and environmental causes I want the world to know about.”

And 20 + thousand followers like what he tweets and LOVE what they see.

Balfour’s character Duke Crocker – is all that and then some.

Eric Balfour as DUKE CROCKER in HAVENDevious, funny, charming…dangerous… mostly hard to label and that makes him all the more lovely and most definitely fun to watch.

Just two shows remain in this the second season, and while word of a third season for HAVEN is pending  – Balfour is keeping busy with a few feature films in works and is rumoured to be co-starring with superstar Taylor Swift in Paradi$e (currently in pre-production).  Wow!!!  We’ll keep you posted on that and continue to keep the faith for one of our favourite shows.

  1. Great article! I think you nailed it on why Eric is so popular with his fans. He's not just some real fine eye candy, he does really care. Not just about his fans, but about the world on a whole. It's refreshing to see a celebrity who doesn't just talk the talk but really does their part to make an impact.

    Here's hoping for many more seasons of Haven!

  2. I love the guy! He seems so down to earth and the real thing.
    I'm sure Haven will come back for Season 3. I'm biting my nails! And keeping my fingers crossed.

  3. I really do hope they come back with Haven. It is one of my favorite shows and would be great if they carried it into the winter months 🙂

  4. Great article! I have been a fan of Eric's for a long time, and at first it was because...well let's face it, he is way easy on the eyes. But then it became about his work, and then when I hit twitter, it became about how he engages with his fans ...and not just the ones that love him, but the way he handles people who say sometimes rude and sometimes downright mean things. He's awesome and such a joy to fangirl. lol

  5. well, what can you say. he's beautiful to look at. but his real beauty is from within, how he uses his celebrity to help further causes he believes in. causes we should all believe in. he's down to earth (which would be hard to do given the attention he's getting). he treats people like people. he doesn't think of himself as being better than the average guy. i really respect him.
