Famous People possibly being Otherkin
I've tossed this idea around for a fair bit of time. And Chris and I like to watch movies or tv and note if a certain actor seems to give off the energy of a certain kind of kin. Granted there is no way to prove it unless you talk to said person or interacted with them on some level, but it's still fun to think about. What famous people do you think are kin?

Liam Neeson - I always thought he was Fae or Elf
Christian Bale - Angel
Joe Flanigan - Fae
Jason Momoa - Angel, possibly Fallen

There's others, but that's just a few off the top of my head.

Re: Famous People possibly being Otherkin
Just actors or anybody else?
I get that vibe off Marc Bolan! The things he said about himself, and how he sometimes felt like he was "more" than "just" (I'll have to find a quote for that one, though it's everywhere -- his bios, etc), and also even his work (especially his earlier stuff). I get the feeling he was some sort of pixie, perhaps. <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->
There's also a lot of writers/poets I get that from, too.

Re: Famous People possibly being Otherkin
I thought Heath Ledger was/is...dunno what kind. Something in his eyes.....

I also agree about Liam Nesson (spelling is wrong, I know it!)

What about Andy Kaufman? Elven or fae, maybe?

Re: Famous People possibly being Otherkin
I'm going to say this in as few words as possible: these threads are BS.

What they ALWAYS boil down to is a variation of "Here are some people I like/admire."

Speculation about the soul of a "famous person" tells us absolutely nothing whatsoever about that person. All it tells us is a little (or a lot) about the people doing the speculating.

Not necessarily... I agree on some people listed here and I don't really admire them. Besides if I were to include "who I admire" I'd include so many more people. I do think that, yes, who we point out might be connected with our interests but then again we do tend to know more about them. Besides I'm pretty sure none of us are taking this word by word, it's just harmless (fun) speculation.

Re: Famous People possibly being Otherkin
:::::nissae sticks her tongue out and makes a face at Archer::::

Ah, c'mon Archer <!-- sTongue --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- sTongue -->

What's so bad about it? It's fun, if not productive, but really does it have to be productive and educational? Isn't having fun something worthwhile?

Famous people are simply more visible. I could say, oh I think my neighbor Mrs. Smith is an ELF.... but really, who is going to know or care about that? Famous people - right or wong - are something that we've generally got in common.

And what little or a lot does it tell you about me that I'd post in a thread like this?

Re: Famous People possibly being Otherkin
Allow me to rephrase: does anyone actually have any valid reasons for believing any of the people touted are otherkin?

Valid reasons would include things like "they say they're otherkin" or "we hung out together and did some energy work and something felt way outta whack". Yes/no?

I find it especially hilarious with actors - you know, people who are paid (sometimes rather well!) because they are able to, among other things, give off an enticing "vibe". Usually the reasonably good ones, too.

As for it being "fun" and all that bit? Yes, it's great fun to fluff out. Terrific. Remind me again where the fun is in giving the name of someone that most people here don't actually know (exceptions abound of course - 6 degrees of separation etc), that most people here have had no meaningful contact with of any kind, that most people here will never so much as have a conversation about reincarnation with - and list a kin type by his name?

Liam Neeson as an elf amuses me no end, though - the suggestion that is, not the idea <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

Re: Famous People possibly being Otherkin
I'll admit that I've wondered a lot about whether John Mayer is angelkin; listen to "Bigger Than My Body" sometime, and you'll see what I'm talking about.

To be honest, though, I'm not particularly invested in who is 'kin and who isn't. 'Kin I've met could be fully human instead, and I'd still think they were good people -- or not, depending on a number of factors. For example: my last girlfriend believed she was some kind of fae. That was great for me at the time -- it meant we had a pretty major thing in common, and could bond over that. Her being fae, however, doesn't change the fact that she is who she is: someone I'm VERY glad to have out of my life for all the BS she's put me through.

It's always nice to know you have something like this in common with someone else, and it is fun to speculate sometimes . . . but does it really matter? Will you hold a celebrity in higher regard because he or she is 'kin -- which is something that can't be proven, anyway, unless one meets said celebrity and talks about 'kinship with him or her? If you would think of a celebrity -- or anyone, really -- differently because they're not fully human, why is that?

I'm not picking a side, here -- just putting out some food for thought.

Okay okay I get your point Archer - I'm not so fluffy that I don't see it, grin <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

I've never had a conversation with any of em, and I'm sure I never will LOL of course there are a few actors I'd like to do energy work with......hmm......

But I still like the thread anyway <!-- sTongue --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- sTongue -->

Re: Famous People possibly being Otherkin
So in that case - what is "fun" about the topic, given that you can't verify (or even try to verify) the suggestions? For that matter why do you believe Liam Neeson isn't human? (I'll focus on him because he's a local, and a friend's cousin.)
