Happens to me all the time. It's weird... because i'm a crew member I get to sit with a lot of guests and I have no problem holding an intellegent conversation and getting on with my job - even if i'm a fan. ... as soon as I'm the other side of the table (depending on who it is) I have had the odd *omg my mind has gone blank* moment!! :D

lol, me too. Sometimes I'm okay, and sometimes... I don't panic, exactly, but I completely forget that I was going to say something. I'll be all "Hey, nice to meet you! *shakes hand* Bye!" then as I'm walking away, I'm suddenly thinking "Hang on, didn't I want to talk to him/her?"

I'm normally a wreck, who can't think of anything to say, BUT when I was meeting the one person I thought I was going to faint in front of, I was fine! That'll be Alexander Siddig. :wub: Told him how much I loved Syriana, told him he was the best thing in 24 last season, and he saved it, and asked him about his new film with Patricia Clarkson. I've never spoken to a guest so much, haha. I think I instinctively compose myself in front of hotties - my mind works the opposite way to most people! :D

I did it with Jason Mewes, but I guess I made an impression because he remembered my name the next time I saw him which was sweet!

Im also crew, and im fine when im sat with them, but when i went to meet James Marsters, i completely blanked XD *didnt help that i had been queueing outside in the cold for a while and my lips were blue and i couldnt talk propperly anyways because i was shivering XD*

The only time i have been with a guest and had nothing to say *well almost* was Christian Cooke at the weekend, as i asked him everything i could possibly think of, and he still looked bored :D i tried so hard to get him to chat, but he was quite shy i think :( It didnt help that i completely blanked the 2 episodes of doctor who that he was in XD I couldnt remember a thing about them. But i really enjoyed myself when he was talking lol

Happens a lot with me....I can stand 20 feet away from a guest I wanna meet and be all cool about them being there, but when I'm stood in front of them, shaking their hand and what-not, my brain decides to vacates my head.

The only people who have ever got me really dumbstruck were Carrie Fisher and Christopher Lloyd. I've been pretty much my normal chatty self with everyone else I've met.

Depends on the guest for me. I had trouble with Karen Allen and Christopher Lloyd this time round but was reasonably okay with the rest. Usually I clam up but oh dear ... Poor Karen Allen .. I had just met Jason Mewes and was on such a high that when I got the Karen (who I was so excited to meet) I just began to ramble insanely and i think I scared her. Have decided to try again if she comes back ( with a scrooged poster next time) and rectify my mad moment if only to satisfy my inner embarrassment! :wub:

It only really happend to me when I first started going to conventions, now that I have attended them for a number of years I don't really get fazed by it all. There again I am extremly laid back, that laid back I have to be careful I don't slip into a coma! LOL

My sister-in-law just loves to make fun of me every time he's mentioned. I completely lost the power of coherent speech when I met him.

Happens to me all the time! I always want to chat to the guests but when I get there my mind goes blank! Although I think I did v well with Dom Monaghan and Ian Somerhalder as they are 2 of my faves and I managed to remember things to say!

 

Or I say something completely stupid like with James Marsters...

James, looking at our photoshoot pic - "the camera loves you"

Me - "the camera loves you too"

 

OMG did I actually say that?!!!!

I had things to ask Georgia but it all went out the window but at least I managed to ask for a photo. I think it's worse when there's a queue behind you.

I'm very shy as it is so facing famous people makes me a nervous wreck :unsure: - still, I have managed a few lines here and there, sometimes it seems like some guests would prefer not to talk to us anyway though!!! :WINCE:

this time around i was pretty lucky, because one of the items i was getting signed by claudia black was part of a costume she wore on set. she recognised it and seemed pretty impressed i'd managed to get hold of it. we chatted about rollerboots :D

 

michael shanks on the other hand...man. i couldn't speak for a good few minutes after meeting him! ;)

I used to be worse, but now I've sorta got used to it- just always remember they are just people too like us- no one is better than anyone just cos they are on TV :P So that view does help, and if I don't have a specific qn, I just ask if they're having a good w/end etc.

 

Although, recently I forgot to ask Craig Charles something and kicked myself afterwards- but hes such a legend to me I had a lot to ask lol! I did a cwk on Kennedy years ago at school, and found that funnily enough the Red Dwarf ep is actually quite accurate- down to the police officer on the grassy knoll... so every other cast member I've met, I've asked what they thought of it... but I forgot with him lol!

Chris Barrie said he had no clue what was going on for the whole ep, and Danny JJ said he loved it so much he bought a book before they filmed it! I can't remember what Rob said...

Yeah, that's happened to me a few times! Not so much these day, but when I first started going I'd get all nervous and my hands would sweat :YAHOO:

Not nervous, but my mind went blank.

 

Have virtually no experience when it comes to getting autographs and meeting very wellknown people. So to get the front of the queue to get Patrick Stewart's autograph and to say,

"Wow, you must have been busy today?"

 

Kinda killed me!!!

 

I was going to comment on his Shakesperian acting or even just tell him that my mom loves bald heads, but no, i had to ruin it!

 

Frik, if I am like that with Patrick Stewart, what will I ever do if I run into someone like Kate Mulgrew :YAHOO:

thank the gods if incoherent thought and speech it's not just me who does that - I send up a prayer all the time that they will say something first, 'cos otherwise, brain freeze!

:pyth:

Only time it doesn't happen is if I've met them once before, then it's less 'erk' and 'drool' and more 'hey, how are you?'

As a bit of a Kennedy assassination nut I loved some of the detail in Tikka To Ride, particularly having Kennedy dressed as a policeman and having him drink a bottle of coke. (A Coke bottle can be seen on the wall on the grassy noll in photos taken directly after the shots).

I've clammed up with guests in the past, and I've ruined a photo because I was nervous. I once was so star struck by meeting an actress that I completely forgot to get an autograph from the other guest at a Tenth Planet signing. The worst, though, was when I met a Doctor Who actress who was in Eastenders at the time. I'd been watching some more of her Doctor Who episodes and had developed something of a crush on her so I found myself spouting out all kinds of crap about how I didn't watch Eastenders but loads of people were really enjoying it, etc, etc. My brain kept saying "Stop talking", but my mouth wouldn't stop. The next time I met her she said "We've met before, haven't we?". I simply said "Yes, yes we have," and hoped she didn't remember the previous meeting!
