The Pleasure of Being a Fan (Colin Firth!)
Bold or simply silly? Jumping a yellow Police Line Do Not Cross tape to get this shot of Colin Firth making a movie six blocks from my office.
What do you think?

BOLD. And so very cool, Peggy!
And you were in the crowd there somewhere, Jodi?
I think you should crop the picture so we think you really got close… 🙂
I think he might look a little blurry, Mamie. As if I were close and slightly woozy.
No. Just in my dreams. We worked on Hillsborough but it WAS the buzz all day.
A man I talked with last night said his downtown agency almost emptied during the shoot.
Way cool! You go girl! Who's Colin Firth? LOL!
My professional photog. friend Karen Tam shot some great close-ups, Beth. She had a lens about two feet long.
Bold, girl! Good for you.
Once I was dining with friends in Wilmington and we saw Anthony Hopkins with a large party in another area of the restaurant. Once of my friends, who is very Bold (and was a little drunk) went over and introduced herself to him.
I don't consider myself very bold, besides which I think actors must get tired of people bugging them, especially after a performance. However, I did introduce myself to Lily Tomlin . I was working on the stage crew at the theater, so it was fairy easy. On her last night she sent an autographed poster to everyone who helped with the show, from the lighting people to the front-of-house folks (ushers and house managers). Now that's a class act!
How did Anthony H. respond, Julie?
I’m from Wilmington and my mother was in line at the box office at Thalian Hall when she saw a man ahead of her she recognized but couldn’t think of his name. She said, “How are you tonight?” as if she knew exactly who he was. He said, “Very well, thank you. I hope you are.” A moment later, Mom turned to her friend and asked, “Who was that?” He said, “Anthony Hopkins.”
This guy draws more than usual # comments to yr posts. I DK exactly who he is; I recon he's some kinda' film celeb. To ur query, it seems to me either both bold & silly &/or silly & bold, tho' not a lot of either. Glad u did what u wanted to do, safely & w/ gusto! Aiki
PS I'm practicing leaving no space between a word & following punctuation–tedious to keep repairing my strong habit, & interesting to teach myself something that requires such concentrated attention.
Yes, a film celeb, Aiki. For the best photography of the event, check out Karen Tam’s work at http://www.raleighpublicrecord.org/featured/2011/11/10/for-the-colin-firth-fans/ I think she really put her heart into this assignment.
Good job on the punctuation, Aiki.
Re: Anthony Hopkins
Anthony Hopkins was very gracious to my friend. She said he was a true gentleman.
I can tell he is that even from here.
