London: 21 April 2009
Another lovely day in the Square, perfect for space waiting. I arrive early with some extra chairs for my fanmates trekking in from out of town.
Once they arrive I am able to skip back to editing central to catch up, for this is very busy week with four events to cover.
The sun shines and red heads quite a few on the fanline but they do not care because Maximus Decimus Meridius, Commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions will be here at six thirty. We pack our chairs away at six and await the arrivals.
Helen Mirren gets here first and signs a lot and tells my neighbour she was there the previous evening, unnoticed, walking behind the fanline at the Star Trek premiere and has a chuckle about it.
Mr. Crowe arrives and does a Tom Cruise type fanline treat, posing and signing for almost an hour, skimping on media requests just to be a loyal servant to the true fans.
