Meeting/seeing actors in the flesh

Postby T'Pau » Fri Sep 29, 2017 11:03 pm

Has anyone met/seen any actors (favorite or otherwise) in the flesh? Maybe at a convention, on the street, at a play, etc?

John DeLancie and Jeremy Bulloch in person at a convention. I've run into Maxwell Caulfield at a hotel. I've met far more athletes than anything else, especially NASCAR drivers - about 50 of them.

I too have met more athletes than actors, mostly NY football Giants and various baseball players; thanks to a former job, I've also met shitloads of famous musicians. As far as actors, I've never been to any sort of convention or anything; but under normal organic conditions I've met Avery Brooks (waited on him at a store of which I was manager and struck up a conversation) and Sir Richard Attenborough (was an extra in a movie in which he starred, and walked up to his golf cart to talk.) Both gentlemen were super nice and extremely accommodating.

As a kid, I rode a chairlift with Robert Redford
As a young adult, I met Richard Thomas and sat next to Matthew Broderick at a diner.
As an adult, I physically ran into Donald Sutherland, saw Patrick Stewart at the stage door of his one man show on Broadway, was recognized by Jerry Orbach while standing in line for a film, sat next to Nicole Kidman and her now ex-hubby the tiny Tom Cruise at the cinema, sat behind Richard Dreyfuss at the cinema, and sat next to Corbin Bernsen at a clam shack in the Hamptons.

I met Gary Burghoff, aka Radar O'reilly at a gas station I worked at several years back. He REALLY values his privacy. I recognized him but didn't make a big deal of it. In case you're curious, he drove a Ford Expedition. He lives in a small town called Magalia, it's a little north of where I live in Paradise, CA.

Met Nemoy at one of his last conventions. He was nice to talk to, and it was clear Star Trek was not just a paycheck.

Also saw Bill Murray at a restaurant north of where I live.

I met FarScape's Gigi Edgely at toy show in San Jose, CA a few years ago. Got her autograph.

If musicians who also had a couple of acting roles count, I should throw in Deborah Harry and Method Man.

Not only did I see, but I got the chance to appear in a movie with Mary Steenburgen

Alexander Siddig and Rene Auberjonois in Birmingham last year. Got both their autographs and shook their hands.

I saw Tom Hanks at a grocery store in Los Angeles a few years ago. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything. He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?” I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off.

When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying. The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter. When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.

LMAO. This has me rolling! Something awesome when famous people are trolls. I gotta ask - what was going through your mind?!
