Only Lovers Left Alive
Sneak Peek 1
Today was the best day of my life. I can’t believe I was lucky enough to meet two of my favourite actors in the world, I can’t express how grateful I am. As I took the train to London this morning I was more nervous than I’d ever been, I thought that as soon as I saw Benedict I would surely faint or burst into tears… and I expected to be really intimidated by Martin Freeman because he’s such a big star now! But as soon as Martin came over and shook my hand I just felt happy, he was so lovely and his smile warmed the cockles of my heart. I must admit that when Benedict came over and stood next to me I felt very shaky and as though my heart was ready to burst out of my chest, but as soon as he asked my name and spoke to me it was simply wonderful. Martin was a real charmer and Benedict was so funny and unlike anyone I’ve ever seen before.
They were both so incredibly kind about my artwork, it was so bizarre having two such talented people say that something I do is “amazing”, when I look up to them so much. As they took the drawings out of the envelopes and gasped and praised me I felt like my heart was going to explode then and there. They said it was the best fan art they’ve ever received. It made me want to break down. To have Benedict Cumberbatch say I’m “talented” is something which I just can’t handle or comprehend. I just couldn’t get my head round it. I feel so overwhelmed right now, the whole experience was so very surreal. I feel so incredibly happy, it was so amazing. I feel kind of dumbstruck right now, I can’t believe it happened to me.
This was the drawing I gave to Benedict as a gift, and this one for Martin. I’m keeping the signed one for myself, forever.
Also I thought I’d just point out the LENGTH OF BENEDICT’S FINGER I MEAN WHAT IS THAT

He’s such a sweetheart! :D He signed one shoe first, then he suggested signing both of them and my brain just went offline. HOW IS HE REAL. I explained I made them for a friend of ours who couldn’t be there with us, b-but I can’t remember what he replied sobs. I’M SORRY.
I asked if I could take a picture with him & the shoes but totally expected him to say “sorry, no time!” so I was completely unprepared & totally failed at it. I was having trouble balancing my SFX book on one arm while holding up the shoes near him and aiming my camera at both with my other arm (and trying not to accidentally elbow anyone!)… so he just reached for the shoes and ACTUALLY POSED WITH THEM. OMFG.
Woah. BLOWN AWAY. HE IS SO AWESOME. AND ADORKABLE. :)
