Today I'll introduce you to Will Cushing, Alanna's lover and partner in crime in West of Paradise. Here's the scene where we first meet Will...
Will Cushing was playing cards and losing badly when he got word, and he knew at that moment his luck had changed. To prove the point he bluffed his way through the hand and won the pile. It wasn’t much but to Will it was an omen of good fortune. God knew he needed it.
Until two years ago, he’d considered himself pretty lucky. He’d managed to keep ahead of the long arm of the law and was in possession of what he considered a small fortune. With careful planning, and Alanna’s help, he figured the two of them could live a decent life somewhere south of the border. But then he’d woken up one morning to find her gone along with every cent they’d stolen.
|Sam Elliott - as Will Cushing. Just put a hat on him and make him a little less grey.|
I actually became quite fond of Will, much to my surprise. Then again, I've always rather fancied Sam Elliott ;)
