Anyone know who is the love of his life that died of cancer? (see earlier post by jaybayox)

DonnaSep 13, 2010

I have been infatuated by this man for over 10 years. I think he is gorgeous, an incredible actor and simply wonderful to look at. As an Actor myself, there are only a hand full of people I would like to meet but Mr. Purefoy is at the TOP of that list!

anyone else notice how all the other women resemble the love he had that died of cancer...trying to fill in the blanks of his life.

AnyaJul 31, 2009

Oh I think I am in love with you, it is too bad you will never know who I am. The Vanity Fair movie made me sad when you died, Phylantropist is pretty engaging, you are amazing. If you are ever in San Francisco I would love to take you out for coffee. poka

Alexis Houston has been seen meeting James in Europe...perhaps it was just a friendly encounter but it was obvious that they know each other. Are there photos of her anywhere for us to see and post?
