There Can Be Only One @ LFCC 2011

The highlight of this years London Film & Comic Con was the attendance of Christopher Lambert, known for movies Highlander, Fortress, Greystoke and Mean Guns. The actor, currently only playing in B-movies is one of my personal favourites and therefor I was more than happy to meet him. He signed my Highlander poster and posed for several pictures.

Another reunion at the convention was the Hellraiser reunion. The director, the main girl and a few cenobites attended the show.

LFCC 2011 @ Earls Court London

Every year a lot of actors and actresses attend the London Film & Comic Con, Britain's largest movie convention. I hesitated to attend it myself this year but I went after all. Below are the people I was able to meet at the event.

Corey Feldman (The Goonies, Stand By Me, The Lost Boys) made this picture with me, because I wanted one without his sunglasses, which he waired during the paid photosession (?!?)
This is the picture I paid to have with Corey Feldman, unfortunately wairing his sunglasses. He tried to be cool with them though...

Brent Spiner is known for his role as Data in the Star Trek series and movies. He is also known for movies like Independence Day and Superhero Movie. This is the paid for photoshoot.

Robert Knepper, known as T-Bag from the hitseries Prison Break signed my poster of Prison Break. Unfortunately he didn't want to pose for a picture again. (Picture: September 2010)

Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa is mostly known for movies like James Bond: Licence To Kill, Rising Sun, Pearl Harbor, Planet Of The Apes and Mortal Kombat.

Vivica A. Fox is mostly known for her parts in Kill Bill and Independence Day. For me she signed my filmcells of Kill Bill and Independence Day. She asked everyone if they wanted to take a picture with her, which was very nice.

This was the second time I met Tom Sizemore. The first time was in Germany a few months ago, which was actually a very strange meeting. This second meet was even stranger. He signed my poster of Heat and when I asked for a picture with him, he was unfriendly enough to give me his middle finger. Fuck him I thought! The next day he was very friendly again and even jumped over the table for a picture... To everybody: "Don't do drugs, see what they did to Tom!"

Veronica Cartwright is mostly known for her parts in Alien and The Witches Of Eastwick.

Shawnee Smith, known from the Saw movies, signed my DVD-cover of Saw and posed for a picture...

Betrayal @ Comedy Theatre

The last theatre I went to visit this trip was the Comedy Theatre, where Kristin Scott Thomas plays the lead in Betrayal.

Kristin Scott Thomas (The English Patient, Mission Impossible) isn´t the most pleasant lady to meet. She refused me several times for a picture with her and I´ve managed to get only one autograph and this several years ago already. This time, strange enough, she posed for a picture but refused to sign. Douglas Henshall (lead actor is the series Primeval) posed a picture.
Ben Miles (V For Vendetta) also posed for a picture.

Pygmalion @ Garrick Theatre

Another play I visited was Pygmalion @ Garrick Theatre. In this play the leadactor was Rupert Everett (Inspector Gadget, Shrek The Third). When he came out of the theatre, it was very crowded but he signed a lot and posed for a lot of pictures. For me he signed my Shrek The Third filmcell and posed for a picture.
Diana Rigg is the lead Bondgirl from the movie On Her Majesty´s Secret Service. I´ve met her before but was unable to get a picture with her then, because she refused. This time she didn´t luckily, but again due to the large amount of people it was hard work.

Butley @ Duchess Theatre

When I was in London, I tried to meet some people at stagedoors of theatres. Why not if you have the opportunity? I met Dominic West (300, Centurion, The Wire, Hannibal Rising, John Carter) when he left his play "Butley" at the Duchess Theatre. He signed my Blu-Ray cover of Centurion and my poster of the upcoming movie John Carter. He was also willing to pose for a picture...
