Anyway, I was at the Stage Door again and FINALLY I got Benedict! I gave him a party invite. He was also kind enough to sign my Stuart: A Life Backwards DVD cover which is what I wanted his autograph on more than anything else. I told him that particular piece was special to me and meant a lot to me so he was happy to sign it.
I now need to get Tom Hardy. I told one of my friends that the chances of doing this are really slim as Tom has not been near the London stage in ages. She came up with the genius idea of going to one of his film premieres - I will try this!
Mark Gatiss was also unexpectedly there and so I gave him a few invites. I told him I was not at all expecting him to come - he is a busy man etc - but I just wanted him to have the invite.
AND I got Danny's autograph on my special edition print for Frankenstein. I took him 2 options - the poster option and the Benedict as Creature option and asked him to choose whichever he wanted to sign. He chose to sign the poster.
So that being done I NEVER EVER have to go to the National stage door again - HOORAY!
