You know they always say about don't meet your heroes as they won't live up to your expectations, Ian went above and beyond! He was everything I wanted him to be and more! It was only my second con, I booked last year to meet him then he cancelled and I was gutted, but Sunday made up for it. He was so friendly and chatty to everyone and as someone said above, it totally didn't feel like a conveyor belt (Tom Felton, I'm looking at you). I couldn't believe that he was in front of me and when it got to be my turn I got completely tongue-tied and couldn't speak!! After the photo and we still had our arms around each other he asked me if I was happy and I said that I was and I loved him and he thanked me for all the love! I nearly burst into tears walking to the talk, so amazing!
Then after the talk, we saw him come out and he made a point of coming over to my son and fist-bumping him, we didn't even try to talk to him, thought he would just walk by!! Then when it came to the huge queue for the Auto, we were lucky and had batch 6 so we got seen quite quickly really! He was still so chatty then, even when the staff said no chit chat, there's no shutting him up!! Loads of yap on him!! I apologised for fangirling all over him previously and he said it's fine, took my hand and rubbed it and said that he loves it! After more fist bumps etc, we were on our way! I'm so glad I listened to everyone on here about getting a Diamond Pass cause without it I wouldn't have got to do the auto, so thank you everyone!!
Ian is just a dream come true! I keep looking at the picture and can't believe that it's us two together!! Best day ever and such a lovely bloke!!!
