The L.A. Complex: Otherwise Known As The Canadian Embassy of Hotness

Where IS this magical oasis of sexy Canadians who party nightly with an ever present band playing on the balcony? Surely such an embassy would be fun for one and all to visit if not permanently reside in rent free until suddenly the manager notices and/or cares.

I've had fun catching up with The L.A. Complex over the last week. Being a wannabe screenwriter in LA - I've found it fun to watch the sexy, lucky, and admittedly incredibly hard working versions of my friends and I as they hustle and hustle their way around Hollywood.

But not just any old show ends up here on The Angst Report. No - there must be that special character with particular depths of inner turmoil. And on that front, The L.A. Complex does not disappoint.

Meet Connor Lake. Recently cast on a soon to be smash medical drama, he's an Australian actor, abused and abandoned as a kid with some serious self esteem issues and a penchant for self harm. My kind of fictional man!

Early in season one, Connor is practically crushed to a pulp when The E.P. (I think...) of his show request that he work with an acting coach. The acting coach asks Connor why he thinks he's there. Connors response: I'm not good enough. Aww.

The acting coach essentially gives Connor a day's worth of confidence boosting. And it helps him out. But when Connor visits the coach's home, requesting some permanent tutelage, he gets shut down. Having a hired coach slam the door in your face doesn't exactly help a guy with serious abandonment issues.

Except this isn't your average soothing cuppa.

No, Connor's preferred method of self harm is boiling water on the forearm.

I've seen my fair share of television cutters, and even a few burners now and then. But it's typically with fire. Connor's specific method of multination is a new one for me. I'll just let his face speak for itself:

Connor is angsty and tortured and a little twisted. He's got a reckless streak and he's more breakable than porcelain. The Australian accent is merely a bonus. Stick around, there's more Connor Lake to come.
