Celebrities @ Covent Garden Hotel

When I was in London I decided to wait at a hotel to see if there were any celebrities staying. I decided to wait at the covent Garden hotel at the day of the Bafta's. I saw two people leaving the hotel while I was waiting for only a very short time.
Robert Forster (Jackie Brown, Alligator, Mulholland Dr.) left the hotel and was very friendly. He was making pictures with everybody, including me. This is certainly someone I loved to meet, as you almost never see him.
)  Amy Adams (Man Of Steel, American Hustle, The Fighter) signed my poster of Man Of Steel and posed for a photo.


Bafta After-Party @ Grosvenor House

This year was a, again, a disastrous year at the Grosvenor House after-party. So this will definately be my last year at this event. I did manage to get a few people at the party, but none of the bigger names...

 Daniel Bruhl (Inglorious Basterds, Rush, The Bourne Ultimatum) posed for a photo.
 Matthew Modine (Full Metal Jacket, Cutthroat Island), who is kind of a dick, did pose for a photo.

Bafta Pre-Party @ Annabels

One of the annual Bafta pre-party's was, as usual, at Annabels. And, also as usual, a lot of the nominees never show up at this party, but a lot of random celebrities DO show up here.
This year the biggest name for me at the party was Kit Harington (Game Of Thrones, Pompeii) who signed my poster of Pompeii and posed for a photo.
 Dylan McDermott, star of TV-shows like Hostages, American Horror Story and The Practice, showed up. Me, being a big fan of American Horror Story, really liked getting a picture with him. 
 David O'Russell (Director of American Hustle, Silver Linings Playbook and The Fighter) posed for a picture.
 Steve Coogan (Philomena, The Look Of Love, The Other Guys) signed my DVD-cover of The Trip and my Blu-Ray cover of Tropic Thunder and posed for a photo.

12 Angry Men @ Garrick Theatre

Another stagedoor I waited to meet some people was the Garrick theatre where Jeff Fahey (Machete, Lost, The Lawnmower Man) and Robert Vaughn (The Magnificent Seven, Bullit, The Towering Inferno) were in a play called Twelve Angry Men.
The 81 year old Academy Award nominee Robert Vaughn signed my DVD of Bullit and sort of posed for a photo.
 Jeff Fahey was really nice. He signed seven items for me and posed for a picture.

Strangers On A Train @ Gielgud Theatre

When I was in London to witness this years Bafta Awards I decided to go and try to meet some at the stagedoors of theatres also. This trip I went to the stagedoor of the Gielgud theatre to meet Myanna Buring and Jack Huston.
Myanna Buring (The Descent, Twilight: Breaking Dawn) signed my poster of Twilight: Breaking Dawn and posed for a photo.
 Jack Huston (Richard Harrow from the HBO-Hitseries Boardwalk Empire) signed my poster of Boardwalk Empire and posed for a photo.
