Premiere "Third Person" @ Oostende Film Festival

This year was actually the first year that a big Hollywood name came to the Oostende Film Festival. Namely Academy Award winner Adrien Brody (The Pianist, King Kong, Predators). I was quite happy that he would come to Oostende for the premiere because I met him already in Cannes but didn't get a picture with him... This was a new chance for me then.
 
Adrien Brody signed my DVD-cover of King Kong and posed for a picture.
 One of the leading actresses of the movie Third Person is Moran Atias. She is mostly known for het part in the new TV-show Tyrant. She posed for a picture with me.

Deauville Filmfestival 2014

This year was the third time I went to the Deauville Filmfestival. This is actually kind of a boring filmfestival with only a few decent stars attending but it is always nice to hang out woth friends during the festival. This year I only went a few days and I was able to meet quite a few people during these days...

Pierce Brosnan is ofcourse mostly known for his performance as James Bond in 4 movies. Beside the Bond movies he made movies like Mars Attacks!, The Thomas Crown Affair, Dante's Peak, After The Sunset and the there is The November Man which he was promoting in Deauville. I heard a lot of stories that he wasn't easy but I have to admit I thought he was amazing. I got a picture with him and he signed my filmcell of Die Another Day, my Blu-Ray cover of Dante's Peak, my DVD-cover of Mars Attacks! and 4 James Bond pictures. So... I cannot really complain :-)

Will Ferrell is a comedy actor I really like as an actor (Anchorman, Old School, Blades Of Glory, Zoolander etc.) but not really like as a person. This was the third year I've met him and this time I finally got my picture with him (although it was also only the third time I saw him this festival). He also signed my photo of Anchorman and my Blu-Ray cover of The Other Guys, which is now complete. Finally I can cross him of my list!

Ray Liotta (Goodfellas, Turbulence, Blow) was not an easy one to get at the festival bit luckily I got him quite early on the day when he left after doing some interviews. He signed my poster of Goodfellas, my DVD-cover of Escape From Absolom and a couple of pictures of him.

Miles Teller (Divergent, Fantastic Four (reboot) and 21 & Over) was in town to promote his new movie Whiplash. He is certainly a rising star and will only be more famous during the sequels of Divergent en the new Fantastic Four franchise in which he is the new Mr. Fantastic. He signed my poster of Divergent and a picture out of Divergent and Fantastic four and he also posed for a photo.  

French actor Lambert Wilson is mostly known for playing The Merovingian in The Matrix Trilogy. Because I like him very much in that I was happy to get a picture with him...
Olga Kurylenko (Quantum Of Solace, Oblivion, Centurion) was also in town to promote The November Man, in whivh she is the female lead. She signed my Blu-Ray cover of Centurion and pictures of Quantum Of Solace and Oblivion. She was also willing to pose for another picture.

Freddie Highmore (Bates Motel, Charlie & The Chocolate Factory) was a member of the jury during the festival. He signed my poster of Bates Motel, my Blu-Ray cover of Charlie & The Chocolate Factory and a few pictures of him. 

John McTiernan is mostly known for directing big movies like "Die Hard", "Die Hard With A Vengeance" and "Predator". He was in town because he was given an award. He signed my Blu-Ray cover of Die Hard and posed for a photo.

Clemence Poesy (Fleur Delacour in Harry Potter) signed two photos and posed for a photo.

Astrid Berger-Frisbey is mostly known for her role in the fourth installment of the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise, but she is about to break through with her part as Guinevere in Knight Of The Roundtable: King Arthur, which is the new movie by Guy Ritchie! Luckily then she was willing to pose for a photo.

Academy Award winning producer Brian Grazer was in toen to promote his new movie Get On Up, but he mostly known for producing TV-shows like "24" and "Lie To Me" and movies like "The Da Vinci Code" and "Ransom". He signed a photo of "Get On Up" and posed for a photo.

Bakersfield Mist @ Duchess Theatre

Another play that was highly anticipated was Bakersfield Mist, starring Kathleen Turner and Ian McDiarmid. Kathleen Turner never does pictures with me people anymore and Ian McDiarmid was never nice to me when he was in a play... This time one of these things changed as McDiarmid was very nice at the theatre stagedoor. He did pictures and signed everything (except Star Wars ofcourse)! He signed my poster of Sleepy Hollow and pictures of him in sleepy Hollow and posed for a photo.


Holy Warriors @ Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

When I went to London it was just announced that Alexander Siffig would have a major part in the fifth season of popular TV-show Game Of Thrones. That was for me an excellent opportunity to meet him at the stagedoor of his new play; Holy Warriors. Alexander signed my posters of Game Of Thrones and Clash Of The Titans, my Filmcell of Kingdom Of Heaven and a photo of him in Star Trek. He was also willing to pose for a photo.
