  1. Isn't his name Leonard Whiting?! Anyway, good to see him.
  2. Same here, thanks for the post but with my booster due in a few days I didn't want to risk attending either. Did Madeline Smith and Valerie Leon appear as scheduled? They were the two I would have wanted to meet.
  3. Most important consideration - as a valuable customer, can I request a plexiglass divider photoshoot even if the Celeb doesn't want one?!
  4. The Diamond Pass process is the convention equivalent of the penalty shootout. Not ideal, people will always moan about it - but no one has come up with a better solution. For Brian Blessed, see Meatloaf, Peter Capaldi etc. Every Con there's at least one DP guest who sees very little VQ action - that's why you if you can't face leaving the con without meeting a certain person, you should buy the DP.
  5. Ouch. It does happen occasionally. Most egregious example I can remember is from several years back, when C Thomas Howell (£15) was sitting next to Ralph Macchio (£25). Howell was clearly peeved at this 'slight' and by mid-morning his price had 'rocketed up' to £20! So i don't think we can always blame Showmasters for this sort of thing, although of course the senior figures could always say to the actor/agent "sorry, you've been advertised as £35 and we have to put our foot down and keep prices as advertised". But they aren't going to do that are they? Would be embarrassing if the actor flounced out and for £15 difference, if you really want to meet someone, you're still going to. At least photoshoot prices are bought and paid for.
  6. Well AJ it took 3 emails from me before I received a sensible response, and my emails were increasingly more assertive/disgruntled/lengthy than the last. If you don't make your displeasure clear, you will be taken for a mug - and I still think I should have fought for a refund and not a voucher, as I bought the ticket last January well before the change in T & Cs.
  7. Just updating that my Felicity Jones autograph arrived special delivery today, I hope others have received theirs. All good
  8. Thanks for the link Steve, my voucher didn't have the amount on it either and I had no idea how to check for sure!
  9. Sorry to follow on the back of this, and for being thick, but when one receives a new voucher from SM, how can you tell you've been refunded the correct amount without going into Eventbrite and spending it on something else?!
  10. Doesn't look like you'll get a response here Chris, probably best to email the shop - but I expect hundreds of customers are in the same boat,
  11. The choice is yours - you either hold on to it and hope SM can book Alice for one of their events next year, or you can email the shop and ask for the money to be returned in the form of a voucher. I have recently opted for the latter and the voucher was sent to me very quickly.
  12. Thanks for the info, glad it went well and roll on November.
  13. Nice photos Ray, how busy was today's event compared with normal Film Fairs? I couldn't make today but am hopeful of attending in November all being well.
  14. Not a rant at all - a useful reality check for those with their heads in the sand.
  15. Yes, I might have had my photoshoot with Alice Cooper by now. Ah well.
  16. Queen (and Stuart) thanks so much for all your help and best wishes for the future.
  17. Hi, bear in mind that I was in the queue next to hers very early, about 9.20am - I think she already had about 15 people queuing, I would expect she was fairly busy all day especially as she gives everyone a lot of attention, standing out in front of the table. Is also there tomorrow I understand.
  18. Enjoyed today - although was on my way home by 10:30! Wasn't sure if I was going to be able to make it having undergone surgery two weeks ago, but couldn't easily give up my Charles Dance photo opportunity. So glad he made it this time. Also met Jerome Flynn, Ivana Baquero, Ben Crompton and Bella Ramsey - all very nice. Most exuberantly friendly guest of the morning was Cassady McClincy of the Walking Dead, who was parked next to Ben Crompton - I've never seen a guest so delighted to be at a con! Hugs all round etc. Hope her energy doesn't burn out.
  19. Real shame about Samantha, but not sure if my tired body would have been able to hang around for the 5:45pm photoshoot!
  20. Thanks as always Queen for the prompt reply.
  21. Hello I apologise if I have missed this elsewhere - I assume DPs will be picked up on Saturday/Sunday once the show begins, rather than any Friday pick up a la the Summer LFCC? Thanks
  22. Was listed as a guest for the April event on the leaflet distributed at the Film Fair event in February. I hope SM can definitely manage to get her for this one.
  23. Was recently cast in the Seagull at the Playhouse Theatre, so probably needs to rehearse and learn her lines.
  24. Blimey, Tommy Wiseau! Or is it James Franco?
  25. It's been a busy week... A Beautiful Day In The Neighbourhood 3/5 - an eccentric, sentimental story about Fred Rogers, a beloved American children's TV presenter pretty much unheard of outside the States. I saw it for Oscar-nominated Tom Hanks, who delivers as usual - in fact, in anyone else's hands, Rogers might have come across as plain creepy. But the film just about works and does hit upon some universal emotional truths. Richard Jewell 3/5 - solidly made account of the 1996 Atlanta bombing and the grossly unfair persecution of Richard Jewell, the Security Guard who discovered the bomb and saved many lives in the process. A slightly overlong but well crafted movie in which Olivia Wilde's bug-eyed journalist strikes the only false note. Parasite 4/5 - one of the best 5 films of 2019, an inventive, compelling mix of social satire and crime comedy that sees an impoverished, unemployed Seoul family inveigle their way into the home of a wealthy, naive household. Don't let the subtitles put you off - a must see.
