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.
