Guests we would like to meet
« on: January 15, 2017, 10:48:21 AM »
Please use this thread to add the names of any UK-based celebrities you would be keen to meet for a photograph and autograph. Don't worry if someone else has already mentioned your favourites - name them again as that will help gauge interest in specific guests.

We can consider celebrities from any field, so not just actors but musicians, sports personalities, authors etc.

Again at this stage I am only looking for UK-based celebrities.

Living in the United States, we don't get names of UK based actors just mainly US and Canadian actors. Can someone provide some names of UK based actors? Only one I know is Virginia Hey.

First name that comes to mind for me is Robert Carlyle #wishfulthinking
Jeez, I'd personally spend an obscene amount of money for pictures, autos and time meeting the man.

More later when I've had some thought (and check who is UK based xD)


SG fandom, or any fandom ?

Any fandom, doesn't even have to be restricted to actors.

Ok...I'll start a possible guest list for the one day UK events.

Diana Rigg:  The Avengers tv show, Game of Thrones
J.K. Rowlings: Harry Potter
Robert Carlyle: since he avoids large conventions(Creation) and stage panels
Dr. Who: cast members past and present

LET THERE BE NAMES !!



Absolute two ? As I already mentioned, Robert Carlyle. And Tom Ellis (BBC's Miranda, Merlin, Fox's Lucifer, ...) IMDB, but I am unsure whether the latter is based in the UK or not since he works primarily off L.A. or Vancouver these days. I would also relish the opportunity to meet with Stephanie Leonidas (Defiance, ..) IMDB again, she was splendid and very approachable at the signing event I met her at previously.




Anyone from the crew or production team for these tv shows would be really nice, we had a production designer for Sherlock come at an event I previously attended and I absolutely loved all the insights into the making of the show they offered. Sorry I can't offer specific names, though :(  Except maybe Arwell Wyn Jones for Sherlock, he was amazing :)
Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Outlander, The Fall.

I'd like to meet any television writer show, too, if only to get more insight into the creative process for their job. Paul Cornell, James Moran. Or in a more general sense, Tony Lee (comics writer, screenwriter, audio playwright, and novelist, he worked on Doctor Who comics projects)


I'd one day love to meet Murray Gold, the composer for all Doctor Who (newWho) soundtracks and themes, but I am unsure as to whether he would ever consider events.
As far as "general" writers go, Neil Gaiman is my ultimate wish  ;D


Mark Gatiss was lovely when I saw him, and seems to love to talk about his job (Sherlock / Doctor Who), so, who knows ;) Actually meeting him (saw him at a panel, so no real interaction, shame :( ) would be lovely.





More so, working off from the "never gonna happen, but wish it upon a star" to the "potentially, who knows, could be" list, indiscriminately, here is a name of British actors I would dearly pay money for to meet, have autos, and/or pictures. But meet any of those would be lovely.


Hayley Atwell (Captain America, Marvel's Agent Carter, Conviction, ..) IMDB
Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who, Victoria, Captain America: The First Avenger, ...) IMDB
Dominic Cooper (Captain America: TFA, Preacher, Need for Speed, Marvel's Agent Carter, ...) IMDB
Gareth David-Lloyd (Torchwood, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Warehouse 13, ...) IMDB
Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who, Broadchurch, Doctor Faustus, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, ...) IMDB
Natalie Dormer (Elementary, The Hunger Games movies, Game of Thrones, ...) IMDB
Chiwetel Ejiofor (Doctor Strange, Serenity, 12 years a slave, ...) IMDB
Luke Evans (The Hobbit - The Desolation of Smaug / The Battle of Five Armies, Fast and Furious 6, Beauty & The Beast, ...) IMDB
Tom Felton (Harry Potter series, DC's The Flash, A Message from the King, Logan, ...) IMDB
Martin Freeman (The Hobbit, Sherlock, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, ...) IMDB
Burn Gorman (Torchwood, Game of Thrones, The Dark Knight Rises, Pacific Rim, ...) IMDB
Anthony Head (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Doctor Who, BBC's Merlin, Cabin Pressure, Warehouse 13, ...) IMDB
Lena Headey (Game of Thrones, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, ...) IMDB
Felicity Jones (Inferno, Star Wars: Rogue One, The Amazing Spiderman 2, The Theory of Everything, ...) IMDB
Matthew Lewis (Harry Potter series, Bluestone 42, Me before You, ...) IMDB
Harry Lloyd (Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, ...) IMDB
Jonny Lee Miller (Elementary, Hackers, Trainspotting, Mindhunters, ...) IMDB
Tom Mison (Sleepy Hollow, ...) IMDB
Gary Oldman (The Fifth Element, Harry Potter series, Batman Begins, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, ...) IMDB
Simon Pegg (new Star Trek movies, Hot Fuzz, Chronicles of Narnia, Doctor Who, ...) IMDB
John Rhys-Davies (The Lord of the Rings, Sliders, Indiana Jones: The Last Crusade, The Shannara Chronicles, ...) IMDB





There goes for me  8)
