In my opinion Evan is artistic in his own way as some other guys are in their own way.
    Okay, but I still don't like his skating. It's just my opinion. I know he can't help how tall he is--and I think that's a big part of why I don't like think he looks all that great on the ice with his long arms and legs. But I also just think of him as the Tom Cruise of figure skating. Often he replaces "intensity" for real emotion. It's just how I see it, and it's not my taste. I like character-- Kurt Browning or Stephane Lambiel or Johnny Weir.

    To each their own. I fell for Evan's skating because his intensity and power reminded me of my favorite male skater of all time, Brian Boitano. Brian was also considered more of a technician than an artist, and like Evan, it took time for him to develop both.

    And one fan's interpretation of emotion may be very different for another. Evan's intensity hits me the right way as a display of emotion, while some of the artistry that many love in other skaters (Oksana Bauil being my favorite example) comes across to me as histrionics and over-the-top mugging. Again, different people, different preferences.

    Back to the interview, Chris, please keep us posted on my interviews like these. You really were able to get to Evan's "heart" and allowed him to reveal new sides to himself. I look forward to more of your interviews! Bravo!

    Yazmeen, I'm with you!

    Evan has developed a style and approach that works for him,
    I enjoy and admire his skating; as I do that of many people.
    May he enjoy a long and successful career, wherever life takes him.

    Chris, thank you for the great questions.
    Evan, thanks for your candor.

    That's understsandable - like Yazmeen said, to each his own. I really like all of those guys you mentioned, but I think Evan brings something a bit different to the table that I also like.

    Fabulous, thoughtful interview. I feel I know Evan better. I'm proud of him as the US champion.

    I feel like we've gotten every figure skating fan in the world to come to our page. Thank you all for your support.

    In the past I've interview now Evan, Kristi Yamaguchi, Sasha Cohen and Scott Hamilton.

    Every so often I'll make an effort to do another figure skating profile. Who would you like to see me speak to?

    I'd love to see on in the future with Alissa Czisny, especially how she worked to get over her head issues and make such a comeback.

    Glad to see the thread bumped up.
    I'd love to hear so many people interviewed, i don't know where to start! Maybe with Orser- I'd love to hear where he is in life and his opinions on skating vs coaching without the edge of controversy. But really, any in- depth interview would be greatly appreciated.

    Odd choice of comparison, considering that the conversation was about Evan being tall.

    I think Michelle Kwan might be interesting, considering she's moved on a bit and she's a recognizable name. Of course Johnny Weir is always interesting, particularly when the interviewer has something to ask about beyond sexuality, flamboyance, and the like.

    Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir

    PLEASE!! You'd be an amazing interviewer for them, and we need some more new interviews with them.

    Actually, I think you should consider interviewing Jeremy Abbott, the "other" male U.S. Olympian-- who referred to himself as "the red-headed stepchild of elite figure skating" on his Twitter account. Read his Twitter, and you'll see he's an interesting character--plus he's been in Evan and Johnny's shadows all these years, despite defeating them several times.

    Brian Boitano.
    I also second the request for an interview with Jeremy Abbott.

    I would LOVE to see an interview with Johnny that talked strictly about his skating: no reality show, fashion, book, celebrity, just his skating, his thoughts about his past and future in skating. That would be very interesting.

    This one's not really about skating, but it's quite thoughtful:

    Anyway, I think there are a lot of skaters out there who are thoughtful and intelligent. They might have interesting thoughts about the future of the sport.
