Purcell Banned From Basking In Sun
Australian star Dominic Purcell was devastated when he learned he would have to forgo his love of surfing during filming for hit TV series PRISON BREAK. Purcell, who plays death row inmate LINCOLN BURROWS, was ordered to stay out of the sun because producers wanted him look like he had been locked in a prison cell for a long period of time. He explains, "I was blessed with that kind of pasty look for a year. I haven't been wearing a lot of sunscreen my whole life. "I grew up in Oz and it's an unfortunate thing, but you get up in the morning and you just surf. As a guy I don't really think about putting a lot of cream on. "This year we're filming in Dallas (Texas) and I'm like, 'Give me the sun! Give me that tan!'"
