I think he is the same guy. I ask myself about his life now.

Most of the dancers in the Vogue video were also on her 'Blond Ambition' tour. There's a great documentary on Netflix called 'Strike A Pose' which catches up with them 25 years later if you're interested.

That Madge video is Open Your Heart, the boy in it is Felix Howard. He had a tidy little career for himself in modelling before becoming a songwriter. Not sure if he appeared in Being Boring but he certainly had the 'Bruce Weber' look (the photographer who did direct Being Boring). Felix Howard would have been approx 17 when the Being Boring video was made.

There's four year gap between those videos. Can't be the same boy. They look different, too.
