He stood in a queue behind me in M&S, he was very nice, chatty. Though I didn't talk to him about the fact he is famous..It was at a time when he was back in Eastenders too.
Also Pierce Bronson, have seen him at Mass in a London parish, very nice despite being recognised by children that where saying "Mummy, mummy it's James Bond."
Katherine, Duchess of Windsor and her daughter, stood behind them in a queue for ice cream at Wimbledon, didn't speak to them but they happily blended with the crowds, no bodyguards or security or staff.#
Alistair Stewart smiled and said hello when he walked pasted me.
