Theatrical Merlin!  
What a lovely weekend! There have been various minor stresses over the last couple of weeks - coupled with plenty of good experiences too, but still. But this weekend was just perfect. First of all, I went to see My Private Life with Colin on Friday, and I finally got my picture with him! It's been a bit of a saga, because Colin's often been leaving via the tunnel, as opposed to the Stage Door, as I'm sure he's tired and/or been avoiding the professional autograph hunters (for which I don't blame him - I've seen them chase him down the street trying to get an autograph!) But I am very happy to have finally got my pic at last.

Then myself and yavannauk went to see Rupert in Company for the final matinee performance - and I enjoyed it so much more than the first time I saw it. Possibly that's to do with being able to ignore the sexual politics and plot and instead concentrate on the lovely performances which had improved out of all measure, and were good to start with!

Then afterwards, while waiting with mrsleary and asifidletyou, Rupert came out and hugged and kissed all of us - how lucky were we! He's so gorgeous, he was all warm and fuzzy in his tight jumper, and striped beanie. Then he chatted for ages, before disappearing for food.

And then there was the last performance of My Private Life, after which Colin came out again and thanked us all for supporting him. I think he was mildly surprised that none of our little group had anything for him to sign or any cameras - but then since he always says something along the lines of 'What - another one?' whenever I proffer anything these days, I don't really think that he should have been that surprised! (In actual fact I've only got one other pic with him, which was taken two years ago, so I don't think I'm being greedy :)

Anyway, so that was my brilliant weekend!

Gosh, he's much better looking in real life! And so, of course, are you!

Hee. How can you say that - he's always gorgeous! :)

Nah, I'm afraid he does nothing for me as Merlin. Or in Midnight for that matter. But a bit more hair works wonders! (I still don't fancy Benedict Cumberbatch in any of the many parts I've seen him in outside Sherlock.)

Actually, I completely agree with you about Benedict - I've seen him in tons of stuff, knew all about him way before Sherlock, and didn'fancy him at all then - but as Sherlock, he's hot as hell!

Yeah, it's weird, isn't it? I think it is the hair, not the character, though I perv over the Brett Holmes too.

Ah yes, it came out lovely ;) Apart from the beauty of the subjects, I claim all honours due to my super photographer skills ;)

Oh, I'm so sorry hon, I didn't think, I'll credit you for taking it!

Awww... the photo of you and Colin is very cute!! I'm glad your perseverance paid off in the end!! :-)

And I think I'm still recovering from Rupert cuteness overload!

I love that Rupert came out and talked with you. You lucky thing!

As for the professional autograph hunters, someone should clue Colin in. If Colin insists on signing the person's name on the autograph (and makes it a condition of the autograph), they can't sell it on ebay for nearly as much. Plus one autograph per person. I know Liam Neeson will only sign playbills if he's in a play. It would get rid of the autograph sellers pretty darn quick.

ooh, lovely! (you and him.)
kinda into that Colin Morgan guy: Colin OPLrodneyscat on October 25th, 2011 08:48 am (UTC)
Ah! I was clicking from one OPL link to another (as you do) and then came across this, which I don't think I'D seen yet and really; there can never be enough smiling, fluffy-haired Colin now can there?!

[edit] Also, I really, really, really hope he'll do another play during the upcoming hiatus *fingers tightly crossed* because watching him on stage has most definitely been the highlight(s) of my fangirl-life.

I know! I so hope he'll do another play. It was so brilliant too - and in such a small theatre. Just lovely. My only slight wish is that the play will be a little longer this time perhaps - but then, I don't want Colin too exhausted. He got sick again, same as last year, right after filming wrapped. He relaxes and so does his immune system (happens to me too) - so I don't want him over-doing it, poor love.
