Re: Bond stars back stage

For a second I got excited thinking the play was coming to the UK...then I saw Broadway. I can always live in hope it tours to London.

Re: Bond stars back stage

Another success. Thanks Double-00 and Tilly. And DrNo07, your postings are certainly not wasted. I managed to get both Samantha Bond and Alan Cumming. Ms Bond was sooo pleasant and jolly. Alan was great too. I certainly owe some drinks to you! Thanks again - can't believe i didn't do this before. Keep the tips going - couldn't do this without your posts.

Re: Bond stars back stage

Gemma Arteton will be opening in a play in London at the Garrick Theatre, Jan 8th 2010.

Re: Bond stars back stage

Met with Johnathan Pryce at the Everyman Theatre today. I had read before that he seems to like using the front door and that's where I caught him. He seemed to be running a little late as he seemed quite rushed as he arrived, but he still had time to be very pleasant. Roll on 2010 and meeting Gemma!

Brilliant!

Did he sign anything for you?

He is usually good at signing TTM. He has signed for me many times TTM.

37

Re: Bond stars back stage

Yes he did sign, however I only asked for one as he was rushed. He signed the photo of him as Mr Carver sitting down next to Mr Stamper. I also got a photo with him. He's still there until 31st Oct and there was no-one else there waiting for him to arrive - so an almost guaranteed personal autograph if someone wanted to make the trip.

Re: Bond stars back stage

Joseph Millson ( CARTER in Cas. Roy. ) will be appearing at the Royal Court Theatre Downstairs from 19th Nov-9th Jan 2010. It also stars Diana Riggs daughter Rachel Stirling.

39

Re: Bond stars back stage

Just looked at Joseph Millson site and he's also currently in theatre. Judgment Day at the Almeida theatre until the 17th Oct 2009. Shame I didn't know when I was in London on the 5th Sep. Darn!

40

Re: Bond stars back stage

I wrote to Joseph Millson when he was staring in Every Boy Deserves Favour at the Southbank and asked him to sign 4 or 5 screengrabs for me and Jamie (Tilly Masterson). He signed all the photos and wrote me a nice note back too. So, you might not need to come all the way down to London again - write to him at the Stage Door and I'm certain he will oblige.

41

Re: Bond stars back stage

Rory Kinnear will be at the Almeida Theatre, London from 11th Feb 2010, and Julian Rhind-Tut ( Tom. Never Dies ) will be at Hampstead Theatre from 3rd Dec 2009.

Re: Bond stars back stage

Another chance to catch the beautiful Rosamund Pike. She is to return to the West End in a new adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's Hedda Gabler. She will be at the Theatre Royal, Bath in Feb 2010, before a short tour and transfer into the West End.
As I didn't get a photo with her last time, I'm sure to try and meet her again in 2010.
Updated:
In Nottingham 22nd - 27th March and in the West End around mid April.

Re: Bond stars back stage

Mainly for our American friends here, but Christopher Walken will be appearing at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on Broadway from March 4th 2010. I have also read that this play will come to London at some stage with the same cast, so a little way off yet, but it`s got me excited to meet the quite elusive Mr Walken.

44

Re: Bond stars back stage

I didn't think Walken was the type of actor to do stage work - oh well.

Great to see he's been announced anyway, and that it will be heading to London after Broadway with the original cast intact! ajb007/smile

I would be very surprised if Chris Walken signs at all, whether that be TTM or IP, as I know he aint a big fan of signing autographs and as you said Eddie, he is quite elusive as it is.........I guess time will tell on that one. ajb007/rolleyes

He seems to share Steven Berkoff's persona, and they both do the same kind of work (intense projects.)

Thanks for letting us know about Chris Walken - might give him a try TTM. ajb007/martini

Thanks for the heads-up on that one. I don't have a dedicated one from him!

Re: Bond stars back stage

Rolf Saxon who played Philip Jones in Tomorrow Never Dies, will be touring  the UK in the play Frankie & Johnny. It will be at the Palace theatre in Westcliff, Essex from 25-29 Jan 2010, and then other regional theatres before, I believe going into Londons west end. It will also be starring Kelly Mc Gillis .

Re: Bond stars back stage

Another chance to meet Jonathan Pryce in 2010.
Theatre Royal Bath Productions presents the Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse production of Harold Pinter's The Caretaker, which opens at the Trafalgar Studios One, on 18 Jan 2010, following previews from 12 Jan - booking to 17 April 2010.

Re: Bond stars back stage

Another chance for Judi Dench at the Rose theatre in Surrey. A Midsummer Night's Dream 9th Feb 2010 - 20 Mar 2010

I missed Joseph Millson. But I'll get another chance to catch him at the Adelphi theatre in Love Never Dies from 26th Feb 2010 - 10th Sep 2010.

Also spotted that the rumoured Bond 23 director Sam Mendes is directing 2 performances. First one from 12th June - 21st August at the Old Vic theatre in As You Like It. Second one on the 18th June.
Do directors turn up for the actual performances or do they just direct before the play is released?
