London: 17 December 2009
This is the press night for classic comedy The Misanthrope. I was the only crew in the media pen so this is a bit of an exclusive. There were a good number of autograph hunters about and celebs were happy to sign and be papped on their way in. After the show, snow started to fall and hampered the speedy get-out of pictures and of course the moisture is not conducive to run-free signings. The celebs were less happy to stop and engage on the way out, wanting to get to the after show party or home to the slippers and cocoa. In my search for a good shot of KK for you dear viewer, I waited at the stage door with a few fans and press in the snow. Damian and Tara were happy to pose but I could not get a good pose from Keira, I even went to the after show party venue, still did not get a good picture of Keira. Walked home to get warm and hot cocoa!

Joan Plowright, Charles Dance, Neal Pearson, Sadie Frost, Preeya Kalidas, Rupert Friend, Imogen Lloyd Webber, Emilia Fox, Lady Helen Taylor, Stephen Mangan, Rosamund Pike, Jonathan Pryce, Damian Lewis, Tara FitzGerald, Keira Knightley
