Alan Rickman! :shock: *Faints* I was only just drooling over him in Die Hard on Saturday night!

I've met loads of famous people through conventions and such, but bumped into very few. None of late!

I did stand about 6 feet away from Joe McGann about 8 years ago on a tube platform in Maida Vale. He sat about 3 seats behind my friend and I. We were tempted to go say hi, but we chickened out!

Linda Bellingham came into H. Samuel when I worked there. Her card was refused and the woman who served her took great pride in cutting it up infront of Linda! :lol: It was really funny!

The woman who plays Daisy in Keeping Up Apperences also came in when I was working there, but no exciting stories about her. I think she bought a Cherrished Teddy or some such crap!

Hello there star spotters ...

Well in the festival recently i saw walking down the street or milling around the Pleasance courtyard Jerry Sadowitz, John Hegley & Jimmy Carr ... thats all this festival but a friend of mine saw Ricky Gervais and sat in the still warm seat he vacated.

I saw ralph fiennes on the royal mile a couple months ago chewing on a matchstick and he was really ordinary looking which was a disappointment but quite tall ...

On the other hand, I saw Radio 1 DJ Colin Murray at a cafe called Favorit and in real life he is REALLY VERY ATTRACTIVE. I was shocked cos he looks like a skinny dweeb on TV.

Oh there are loads of people there ... its quite a nice place to sit outside if the weather holds out.

Jimmy Carr is famous for loitering and waiting to be recognised. You will probably see him ...

I tend not to bother approaching celebs in real life even if i like them. i feel like a dork going up to someone saying "oh i'm a big fan blablahblah" - it would seem so awkward. :oops:

Wow!!! I love Colin Murray. His accent is so mmmmmmmmm.

I saw Richard and Judy in Disney Land Paris a few years ago. That is it really.

I would leave celebs alone if i met one. Unless i was a big fan. :D
Is that why i have to wash my face with a potato?

i went to see Stewart lee (from Fist of Fun and Lee & herring fame) last night at the Underbelly in Edinburgh. he was really good and my friend i was with (acquaintance from another website) knew him so i was introduced and shook his hand ... which was nice!

PS - 4th time i saw Jimmy carr and his fat face hanging around the Pleasance Courtyard. he is there ALL THE TIME! I heard a rumour he took mind-control lessons from Derren Brown so he can use them to further his career. No really - apparently he did!
