Thrandruiliel, you make me quite faint as I consider that (im)possibility! However, I would let everyone down, I know it - because in the presence of stars, I become this human guppy. I am just too starstruck - all rational thought and sensible discourse and intelligent conversation that will impress them with my wit - all leaves my head, and I just want to blurt out "I LOVE you!"
But I am HOPELESS when confronted with favourite actors...
Example - here in Melbourne where I now work (I travel to NZ twice a year to hang with family), I work at a big radio station, and around the time that 'Lost' was on TV, Dom Monaghan and Evie Lilley were doing the promotional rounds. I was not even aware of this until the day (uncannily, I was browsing TORn at the time when I should have been working) I became aware of a commotion going on in the foyer. I walked out, and there was Dom in our foyer, posing for a photo with a number of female staff.
It was so unexpected - I was so stunned, I couldn't move, I couldn't speak, I couldn't even rush forward and get in the photo. I just stood there with my mouth open. Then his PR ushered him out of the building. A fellow staff member found me quietly fangirling in the kitchen. All I could say was "OMG... OMG".
Wow, though, fancy if your friend Jo did get the part! Yeah... it might have meant choosing an older looking actor for Thranduil (like the way Elrond is timeless yet older looking) in order to make that work.
I have another moment! I was once *cough* in a hotel room with Sandro Kopp (dashing elf/ Narnia centaur extra) wearing a bathrobe and posing for a self-portrait. (it was nowhere near as saucy as it sounds) Thankfully I wasn't a total gibbering mess on this occasion.
'O' is very useful. You use it when you say... "Oscar's only ostrich oiled an orange owl today."
