Just wondering if anybody has ever met any famous people? Whether it be an actor/actress, someone from a band?

I got to shake hands with Lou Ferrigno (he played the HULK on the television series). And I've met Tom Wopat at the grocery store of all places. He played Luke Duke from Dukes of Hazard television show.

Hi Ambico http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

I have not met anyone famous but this is a good idea for a thread. It should be interesting to hear what kind of stories people have?

I once saw one of the Big Brother Australia evictees. He was on the same plane as me going from Melbourne to Brisbane. I don't like the big brother "phenomenon" at all so it wasn't very exciting. Everyone sitting around him seemed excited though :rolleyes:

I work in the media here in London, doing post-production sound and see famous people all the time.

They're just like you or me really, just with more money!

I even work with the TR voices sometimes...

Not me,but my brother. When the Indiana Pacers came into town to play the Magic(this was during the 2000 season), my brother had a run-in with Reggie Miller at the Namco arcade he worked at.
He and Reggie played a game of NBA Jam, my brother beat him and he gave my brother a $2 bill and signed it with his signature.

Well I don't know if anybody remembers this guy. His name is Gordon Jackson from 'the Profesionals'. When I was in high school about 20+ years ago he came down there, can't remember 'why' but it was exciting anyway. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Not that I have any memory but, John Wayne was in Kenya filming when my brother literally ran into him. At which point, apparently, JW bent down and picked him up. Brother would have been about 4 at the time. He had a tantrum at a total stranger picking him up, mother nearly brollied him (JW) until she recognised him. Then she nearly fainted. Apparently caused great amusement all round.

Some well(ish)known people.

The drummer with The English Light Orchestra/The Move lived at the top of our road. One of my school teachers played rugby for England. A couple of kids in my school were in a punk band from 76/7. Called 'The Prefects'. Their 'best know song was 'The Bristol Road Leads to Dachau'. Which was obvious nonsense - the A38 quite clearly goes to Bristol. Jeff Astle, the West Bromwich Albion striker who lost the world cup for England in 1970!

:(

One of my college teachers wrote songs with Ian Dury (of Blockheads fame). I met Rat Scabies of the early punk group 'The Damned'. I worked for Bob Geldof and met Midge Ure, Roger Daltry, Elvis Costello, Eric Clapton, Paula Yates, Mick Jagger, Jerry Hall, Marie Helvin etc:.

I didn't 'know' most of the above, only met them.

Actually yes, I've met someone, but he's not universally known. He is a very popular and very talented singer/composer here in Greece, who also happens to be from my home island too http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif In fact, that's where I met him, at a concert in my island.

I saw Sophie Thalman (Miss France 1998) in the subway a few years ago. She didn't even throw a look at me -- perhaps because she was 7 inches taller than I am.

I also passed Laetitia Casta not far from where I live, she must have seen how stunned I was for a couple microseconds and she gave me back a simple yet charming smile. I was never the same thereafter -- that is, until I bumped into a dustbin a few seconds later.

When Star Trek fandom was young, wonderful and organized by the fans themselves (that was the eighties in Germany, the seventies in the US) I met almost all the stars from the original Star Trek series personally which wasn't too unusual then.
In 1980 f.e. I spent a week with Bjo Trimble and an afternoon with George Takei (Sulu)in Los Angeles.
The point about this wasn't being with famous people, but with good people who are great company.

Dorothy
25-11-03, 14:02
Bjo Trimble organized the "self-help" letter - campaign when Paramount http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yuck.gif cancelled the production of the series after two seasons.
Around a million letters were written to Paramount and it was asked to make them indistinguishable from business letters. Paramount http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yuck.gif had to give up, but did everything to make it "go bad".
Bad script-writers etc.

Personally I think the episode "Balance of Terror" was so good it balances out the bad episodes in that season.

Ok, there is a moral again.

At least TRY to improve things in your own places.

Don't hide from things and fight if you must or else the problems will come home to roost in the long run!
