London Film and Comic Con 2016

July 30, 2016

This year marks the tenth time I have gone to the London Film and Comic Con and it was sporting some rather big names in the movie industry such as Jeremy Renner, Famke Janssen, Dolph Lundgren and Rutger Hauer.

I went straight to Olympia after getting off the train, first up was Jon Heder from Napoleon Dynamite, Blades of Glory and Benchwarmers. He was really friendly and talked for a bit, he even messed up inscribing the picture to me so did another one.

Next was Kae Alexander from Bad Education and Game of Thrones, she was happy to chat and pose for a photo.

Dolph Lundgren was next, did not talk much just signed my photograph.

Jamie Kenedy was next from the Scream movies and Malibu’s Most Wanted, he was freindly but seemed a bit spaced out if you ask me.

The last autograph of the day was Judge Reinhold who was not allowing any pictures of him signing which was a bit odd, after signing my photograph, he pointed at his face on the picture and said that was Nicholas Cages Head, don’t really know what he meant by that! I then had a photoshoot with him.

I then left and checked into the hotel.

I went and waited outside the stage door for the Spoils and was able to get autographs from the cast including; Jesse Eisenberg, Kunal Nayyar, Alfie Allen, Katie Brayben, Annapurna Sriram.

I then went down the road and got Lily James’ autograph and tried to get Rebel Wilson’s but could not get close enough.

First up today was Rutger Hauer, the guy in front of me was speaking Dutch to him so when I approached him he started to speak Dutch to me also,my Dutch is not the best but I do know thank you which he seamed to appreciate.

Next was Dominic Monaghan who signed my Lord of the Rings picture already signed by Billy Boyd.

Next I waited for Famke Janssen (for over an hour as she was late) and to e honest it was a bit of a disapointment, she was pobably the person I most wanted to meet over the weekend, but she did not talk or make eye contact and her staff made the security guards stand in front of her so no one could take pictures of her.

Then it was photoshoot time and I did four in a row; first was Jeremy Renner then Dolph Lundgren then Rutger Hauer and last was Famke Janssen.

I then sat down for a bit and listened to a talk by Jeremy Renner followed by meeting him to get his autograph. I then left and got something to eat before watching the Spoils at the Trafalgar Studios.

I found out on Friday that the Premier for Petes Dragon was going to be this morning at a hotel and Bryce Dallas Howard from Lost world was going to be there.

She was great posing for pictures and signing for everyone, out of the corner of my eye I also noticed Ron Howard so was able to meet him as well.

    Cool lot of meets and autographs. It’s a great hobby I also love doing it.

Got something to say?
