Indubitably the best picture ever. SO funny, so candid, it's actually golden... the photographer is a genius :D I was posing with the 2D character on the poster and I had NO idea Eoin was watching me… >.< honest to God, I want to cherish it forever.
On Friday (24-2-2012) I met Eoin Macken, aka – Sir Gwaine from Merlin, a former model for Abercrombie and Fitch, avid tweeter, a poet, a cinematographer… along with many many other things. XD
And he was the loveliest guy ever. He’s the first actor I’ve met that I’m a fan of, which is strange, cos I’ve met a LOT of people. But as I actually admired his work and his personality greatly, I was really starstruck when I met him. And ridiculously shy, I hate to admit. I hope he didn’t notice.
But that’s also why he’s amazing, because he really brought out my confidence by being laid back and carefree XD I felt like I was surrounded by my friends, as opposed to a bunch of strangers who all adored this actor. And when we were all talking, it didn’t feel like a ‘fangirls and actor’ conversation, but much rather a ‘friend amongst friends’ kinda conversation. Hence the reason why I was perfectly content with making a fool of myself, and posing with the 2D character XD
So thanks a lot, Eoin, I seriously appreciate it :) I really hope we meet again, because walking away from you was SUCH a struggle that day haha XD
My only regret is that I looked like a piece of sh-t. No joke, my makeup was gone by the time he got there, and my body was functioning on 30mins sleep and a bottle of coke.
And of COURSE I then met a man who used to be a model, and looks gorgeous no matter where he is or what he’s doing. A man who, in our photos together, looks like he stepped straight off the catwalk, whereas the stumpy girl next to him looked like someone wiped her off their shoe..
The injustice, although alarmingly painful, was SO worth it.
