30 Week Phantom Challenge: Week 2
Who was your first Phantom? When and where?
Technically, the original Leroux was my first Phantom, and I still love the freaking crap out of him. You already know the story, I was sixteen, blah blah blah, but that one always felt like destiny. There wasn't a bargain book bin at Walmart for the longest time, then one day it magically appears along with the book that changed my life. My first Andrew Lloyd Webber Phantom was Michael Crawford, in listening to the original cast recording (first on last.fm, then on YouTube). My first film Phantom was Gerard Butler, and he remains my favorite.
