Matthew Gray Gubler isn’t like most other celebrities. His face features more regularly on Terry Richardson’s blog than in the pages of tabloid magazines and, although he’s a director and actor at heart – you might know him as Criminal Minds’ Dr Spencer Reid – he’s also an artist who is really good at the Internet. (It would be remiss of me not to acknowledge that he is also very cute – when I interviewed him I had to pretend that he was hideously unattractive so as not to come across as a giggling teenage girl.) I spoke with him about Halloween costumes, seeing ghosts, and falling in love with fictional characters.

Have you got anything else planned for tonight?
