Encounters with Celebrities
Have you ever met someone famous and if so, how did they come across? Nicer than you'd think or had fame gone to their head?
I don't think I've met anyone particularly famous - the only one I can recall is the former TV chef, Kevin Woodford, who was filming a show in Rhodes. He was very nice and spent a while drinking with us in a bar.
My best friend from school once went down to a Stonewall gig in London (shortly after he had come out) and wrote to Ian McKellen, who was compering. Sir Ian wrote back and invited him to come down in the morning, and spent the day with my friend, introducing him to other people in the show, including Julian Clary, Sonia (scouse chantreuse) and Sandi Toksvig, and even bought him lunch. What a nice chap!
