Nicholas Sparks Revealed A Surprising Thing About Noah In 'The Notebook'
I was 12 when I first saw Ryan Gosling dangling from a ferris wheel asking Rachel McAdams to go out with him, and I immediately fell in love.
Noah, Ryan Gosling's character in "The Notebook," ruined all other men in terms of romance. Just ask anyone who had two eyes and a heart in the early 2000s.
So, it's kind of weird apparently no guy wanted to play the iconic heartthrob.
In a recent interview with IMDb, author Nicholas Sparks recalled how difficult it was to find an actor to play Noah. He said,
It is extremely ironic the actors were turned off by a character whose only arc was to fall in love. Gee, I wonder what it would be like to only be written as a romantic interest, right ladies?
Thankfully, our angel Ryan stepped up to the plate and made Noah more swoon-worthy than any other actor could have. The role essentially launched his career as an A-list actor, so who's laughing now? Bless.
