So last Wednesday night I camped out in Leicester Square with a bunch of people I had never met.
They were all lovely, I couldn’t have wished for more amazing complete strangers to wait 24+ hours with.
The reason we did this was for the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One (phew) premier.
I have been a Harry Potter fan from the very beginning, and now its coming to an end I feel like I finally have to grow up. BUT not before I do a few more crazy HP related things.
Such as this.
Many of the girls at the premier harbour intense crushes on this particular fellow…
I rather agree with them, but I am not as crazy as some of the girls, they went mental. But he was lovely, came over signed and took photos and was generally just sweet. Quite an achievement in the face of thousands of screaming girls.
Me, on the other hand, I was absolutely ecstatic when I saw this man.
He has never been in a HP film, So when I spied him through the crowds I was very happy. We got him to come over and say hello, and somehow I managed to hold an actual conversation with him, and acted pretty normal. No sign of the DT’s that normally come over me when I speak to someone famous whom I find attractive. But I spoke to him about Sherlock, and got him to say hello to a friend in the US, so all is good.
Another star who was there who had nothing to do with HP was Chloe Moretz, who played Hit Girl in Kickass. She was very sweet. And anyone who manages to work with Nicholas Cage and stay sane at such a young age deserves a mention.
I think I better put something in about the HP stars who were actually. They all were, pretty much, but they all had to do a lot of interviews so dashed by, sometimes coming back after to sign thing. But I was very happy with the outcome of the night. It was well worth it and I will do it one last time next summer.
If it is only just to see this man.
Gotta love a bit of Jason Issacs.
He is the man.
The only two people who I still REALLY want to meet are Jeremy Irons (I have met his son, and his wife, but not him) and Doug Jones. There are others but at the moment these guys are at the top of my list.
