  1. Met George many years ago. What a gentleman he was. I may pop along and get my photo with him from then signed.

    Great Guests experiences

    Here’s my favourite. Many years ago at a con, my late wife and I met Leslie Easterbrook and Marion Ramsay who played Callahan and Hooks in Police Academy. Both were unbelievably friendly, and happily chatted away and posed for photos at their table. When we were leaving their table I happened to say we were off to the bar for a glass of wine. They joked they wished they could come with us and we left. While I was at the bar, I bought them both a miniature bottle of wine and took it back to their table along with a couple of glasses. They were so taken aback by my gesture. That was it for the day. Every time we walked past during that day they shouted us and waved. Later that evening, we went out for dinner in the hotel restaurant, and it turned out they were staying there as well. They saw us, shouted us over, and invited us to have dinner with them. We spent a few happy hours swapping stories and getting a little tipsy. The following day back at the con, we again visited their table, and they admitted they were a little worse for ware from the previous night. A nicer pair of ladies you couldn’t wish to meet.

    I can only add my sadness and deepest condolences to her family. Had the pleasure of meeting her a few times and she was such a wonderful person.

    Not sure if these would do/have done cons but I’d love it if you could get the cast from Some Mothers Do Ave Em: Michael Crawford - Frank Spencer Michelle Dotrice - Betty Spencer Gemma Arterton (Played Jessica Spencer in the 2016 Sport Relief special)

    General Chat

    Most have Chlamydia apparently.
  6. Superb write up. Regarding your photos, the one with Peter D is the one I most prefer. It just looks so relaxed, warm and personal (and I think I remember you from the queue). Look forward to seeing you next year hopefully??

    Couldn’t see this posted anywhere, apologies if it has been. Jeremy has announced his retirement from conventions earlier today: Dear Friends, It is with a heavy heart that I have decided to stop attending conventions and hang up the Fett helmet. It has not been an easy decision to make. In 1979 I was called onto the set of Empire Strikes Back to play Boba Fett, and since that day it has changed the entire direction of my life in such a wonderful way. It has been a privilege to have had the opportunity to inspire so many generations of Star Wars fans. I have had over 20 years of travelling with my wife Maureen to some amazing countries and have met so many wonderful fans. Thank you all so much and we will miss you all. ‘May the Force be with you always’ Jeremy https://www.bobafettfanclub.com/

    The cast of Sense8 would be good (as would getting Megan Fox again)

    That’s some impressive photoshopping there. I’d love a tutorial on that.

    Credit to the cosplayers as always. Awesome work everyone:
  14. I thought Peter was great. We had a great chat about the RoboCop outfit and how he had to learn to act in Slow-Mo for the part. The only small gripe I have, is that there were no ‘proper’ RoboCop pictures provided to be signed. I know I could, and should have brought one with me, but I did expect there to be a good selection.

    Had mine with both Peter Weller and James Caan re-taken because both had their eyes shut. Because somehow I managed to be last for both and had to go around again I got to have a little chat with both of them afterwards when the Crew we’re having their photos taken.
