Ian the Compassionate

By: Essie Cha (Makeup Artist)

I have seen evidence many, many times of Ian’s extremely down-to-earth nature and have decided that he is definitely an incredible role model for other actors. This goodness makes me his biggest fan.

His kindness does not stop with humans. He is also an animal lover and advocate for their wellbeing. He practices what he preaches in this regard. Towards the last days of season three of ‘The Diaries’, a crew found a litter of kittens on set. Ian immediately set to finding them a bed and food, and even made a “DO NOT DISTURB” sign for the fuzzy little creatures. He even looked after the kittens until he found homes for every last one of them. We all searched for the mother cat, but she was not to be found. That was until Ian relentlessly searched, well after dark, using a flashlight. He went so far as to come back the following day, telling me that he wasn’t going on hiatus until he found mamma healthy and safe and could find her a good home.

He showed the same kind of devotion to animals during the horrific Deep Water Horizon oil spill, taking time from his busy schedule to clean oil from countless creatures caught up in the manmade mess.

An internet search revealed even more proof of his love for the earth’s creatures. In 2010, he hosted the Bash on the Bayou which raised money for the Saint Tammany Human Society. And in 2012, Ian was the recipient of the Genesis Award, a Humane Society honor. I am quite sure there are many other acts performed by Ian for animals that never hit the media. But just judging by my own personal experience with him, I am convinced he is a man of compassion.

In my next life, I want to come back as Ian’s cat. But I am lucky enough to be just me this time, the recipient of his generous gifts, extraordinary example, hugs and kisses and his great sense of humor.
