People of the internet: please join us in wishing lead dancer Alasdair Spencer a happy birthday today! Known internally to Team Lord by his nickname, "Frank the Tank", Alasdair is an amazing Dark Lord; his interpretation of the role is downright *creepy,* like a psychologically disturbed apex predator who only moves for the kill.
Alasdair once joked that Don Dorcha is his natural state, and he has to put on his human face when offstage.
We laughed. Nervously. Then backed away.
In real life, Alasdair -- aside from just being a really awesome person to hang out with -- is also an amazing photographer and videographer; if you enjoyed the China 2020 tour video from a couple of months ago, the high-altitude drone photography and footage from the Summer Palace in Beijing are all Alasdair's footage. He brings his Steadicam and high-powered DSLR with him on the road, which really came in handy at one point during the most recent tour!
Two other key points about Alasdair: he has the driest, most deadpan sense of humor of anyone in Team Lord. And he is taller than you.
Let's wish him a happy birthday!
