I Love a Chess-Playing Cowboy and His Name Is Benny
The Queen's Gambit is a masterpiece with its intriguing storylines and all-star cast, but one thing I haven't been able to get out of my head since binge-watching the series is Thomas Brodie-Sangster. The 30-year-old actor first rose to fame with his role as Sam in Love Actually, but he obviously looks super different on the Netflix miniseries. Even though his character, Benny, sports a scruffy mustache, a goofy leather trench coat, and a cowboy hat throughout the whole series, that didn't stop me from swooning over him. I don't know how to explain it, but when Beth pushes Benny's hair back in episode five, something changed for me. If you've watched the series, then you know what I mean. If you haven't watched yet, allow this thirst post to persuade you to add the show to your watch list.
