Topic: Bond stars back stage

I saw a post which pointed out that Topol was at an event recently. Some stars don't seem to wish to attend autograph events however may be approachable when appearing in a play or book signing event etc. To search all plays and appearences etc for a Bond star is so difficult, I know I nearly missed out on Roger Moore recently! Anyway perhaps if we could start posting events that stars are attending and maybe successes on getting back stage autographs?

Re: Bond stars back stage

I don't think that's a bad idea. I much prefer to meet the stars in person than to buy their autographs.

Re: Bond stars back stage

I do normally give the heads up when i notice someone at the theatre, it was me that posted the item about Topol. At the moment it`s pretty quiet on the Bond front in theatres, but heres a few.
COLIN STINTON-( TND ) is at the Apollo in Rain Man.
MALCOLM SINCLAIR- (CAS. RY ) & KEVIN McNALLY-( TSWLM )are  at the Wyndhams until Nov 29th.

Fantastic pointers. Exactly what I want (and maybe others too). Most of these stars you mention won't attend an autograph show, however if there's a chance, it's worth a try to get those in person autographs.

Re: Bond stars back stage

Success! Thanks DOUBLE-00 for your pointers and encouragement. I got Judi Dench and Rosamund Pike this weekend. I even popped over to the BFI on Southbank and managed to get Lewis Gilbert's too. I did try for Jonathan Pryce's however as Rosamund turned up so late (and only signed 1 autograph - mine [phew]) I was too late for him (get him in Liverpool).
Rowan Atkinson is in Oliver however is apparently not signing anything but Oliver items? (unsure how true).
Anyway Judi Dench was fantastic - so quiet, nice, patient and seemed to have all the time for us fans. Another collector there said there seemed like 50 people one night and she made sure she signed everyone. If you want an almost certain autograph of Judi (in my book, although not that experienced with all this yet) get down to the Wyndham theatre back door around 2 hours before. If you're lucky you may get a bonus Rosamund too!
