I have just been reading a letter on 4BR about somebody who plucked up the courage to speak to somebody famous that they admire, only to receive the cold shoulder. It prompted me to wonder whether or not tMPers have ever met anybody famous, and plucked up the courage to talk to them? How did you get on? Was it what you expected? I once met the actor Geoffrey Palmer on a tube train and found him to be a really, really nice chap! On the other hand my sister went on holiday to Thailand a couple of years ago and stayed in the same hotel as a very well-known actor (who I suppose had better remain nameless!) who was in EastEnders. Turned out that this chap was a complete rude and arrogant plonker (self-imposed fff censorship there!). What have your experiences been?
