New autographs since February

I took a complete break from sending letters for the last 7 months but a few weeks ago I started again, after receiving two new autographs, one of which may have been my longest wait: 5 years and 2 1/2 months to be exact. I wrote to Katie Leung (Cho Chang from Harry Potter) back in February 2012 – and got a reply from her 3 weeks ago.

For one of the new letters I sent I already got an answer. 9 days to the UK and back is damn quick! 🙂

These are the autographs I got since my last post:

Katie Leung – Cho Chang (HP)

(see full scan: Other movies –> HP)

 

Joanne Froggatt – Anna Bates (Downton Abbey)

(see full scan: Other TV shows)

 

Bella Ramsey – potentially a future ruler of Westeros, fierce as her character is. ;-D  = Lady Mormont (GoT)
She actually signed all three of my photos but they were badly smudged, this one being the neatest. She suspected that since apparently the ink didn’t dry, and wrote a note on the backside to resend photos if they were smudged, which I did this week.

(see full scan: Other TV shows –> GoT)

 

Conleth Hill – Lord Varys (GoT)

(see full scan: Other TV shows –> GoT)

 

+ i.p. at MagicCon: Lotte Verbeek, Zach McGowan, Emilie de Ravin, Keegan Connor Tracy, all of which I only got because I didn’t wanna waste the money I paid for the ticket. Maybe I’ll watch their shows one day and like them and be glad that I got their autographs. 😉 Haven’t scanned those yet. Also Louise Brealey. Already had her autograph, but I missed her photo session due to the orga’s constant switching of her schedule 😦 and I didn’t wanna waste this either. Plus I love her in Sherlock and she’s such a fierce woman, as I realized in her panel and the autographsession.  Haven’t scanned the autograph yet either but you find the autographs that I already had on the Sherlock page (Other TV shows –> Sherlock)

New autographs since June 2016

I realized that I haven’t posted for quite a while now. There are two reasons:

  1. The lack of responses didn’t motivate me much to continue writing letters, which of course lead to even less responses. And
  2. I’ve discovered a new hobby, cosplaying (you can see photos of my first cosplay and after MagicCon also the next cosplay here), and I use pretty much all my spare time to build my next cosplay, so that it will be ready for the MagicCon in April (and then probably the next cosplay, for the next MagicCon, and so on). It leaves me almost no time for this hobby. But maybe I can bring myself to write a few letters now and then.

Anyway, I got a couple of autographs since my last post.

Three I won’t post because they are badly smudged (another reason for not being very motivated) – Chris Pratt, Hugh Bonneville and Jim Carter), and one is probably a sec (Richard Madden). Here is the rest:

New autographs since my post in June: Kit Harington & Anton Yelchin

I got two new treasures in my collection, one thanks to the lovely Kesi, who met Kit Harington (Jon Snow/GoT) in person after his play “Doctor Faustus” and kindly got his autograph for me ❤ Thank you SO much!! 🙂

Kit Harington

And the other one was kind of a hurried purchase… I had been trying to get Anton Yelchin’s (Chekov/Star Trek ( & into Darkness)) autograph for a while and when I read the sad news that he had died, I bought his autograph – for a “decent” price, since the dealers apparently hadn’t caught up with the news yet – (let’s face it, the prices for his autograph will be insanely high now for quite a while). I’ll treasure this one and will go and watch the new movie with very mixed feelings – excited about the movie but very sad about the death of this talented young actor.

Anton Yelchin

I added the full scans to the Star Trek and Game of Thrones page respectively; if you want to know the password, comment on this post or send me an e-mail to the address on the right)

There weren’t that many panels on Saturday, and I missed most of the rest due to photo sessions and the costume contest. You can find me on some of the last photos (the elf in the red & golden armor with the shield).

HobbitCon 4 photos: Friday

HobbitCon 4 photos: FridaySaturdaySunday

This time I really don’t have a lot to tell, since somehow I missed most panels. I had a gold ticket for the first time and ran from photo session to photo session. Plus, I wore an elaborate costume this time and also participated in the costume contest, so wandering about and getting photos taken and enjoying the attention was a priority for me this time 😉

That doesn’t mean that I didn’t take any photos, so are a few photos from Friday:

Autographs since December: Jack Gleeson, Rose Leslie, Maria Howell, Sibel Kekilli

Regarding autographs this year has begun very slow for me. I haven’t had time to send out new letters either.  4 new autographs since my last post:

Jack Gleeson (Joffrey / Game of Thrones)

Thanks to Kathrin for getting his autograph for me at RingCon! 🙂

Emilia Clarke & Julian Glover

I got two more autographs recently, both for my Game of Thrones collection:

Emilia Clarke, who plays one of my three favourite characters (or four, but one of them has already died, so…). Of course she’s Daenerys Targaryen; she was the first actor I wrote to specifically for this show. She didn’t sign the photos I sent her, but a presigned photo, but I’m very happy about it, since it’s a very beautiful picture (not like most photos actors use to send), in fact I even prefer it over the photos I sent to her. However, I’ll try to get a personalized autograph when she starts replying individually again.

Emilia Clarke

Julian Glover, who plays Grand Maester Pycelle, and Triopas in Troy. He signed and personalized all three photo I sent him. 🙂

Julian Glover Julian Glover2 Julian Glover3

I added the full scans to the Game of Thrones page (Other TV shows –> GoT) If you want to see the full scans, please e-mail me (fantasy-autographs@gmx.de) or comment on one of my posts and I’ll send you the password.

George Blagden & Scott Bakula

I got two more autographs today, one from the fabulous George Blagden, who plays Graintaire in the Les Miserables movie – and Athelstan in Vikings (which I just started watching, so I’ll have to write him again eventually). And the other one from Scott Bakula, Dwayne Pride in NCIS: NOLA, and of course Jonathan Archer in Star Trek: Enterprise – which I haven’t started watching yet but certainly will and I’ll probably want his autograph on a photo from ST too, so I sent two from NCIS and one from ST, and he kindly signed all of them 🙂

Dan Hennah & John Williams

Since my last post I got two terrific autograph successes.

Dan Hennah‘s was one of my most wanted autographs. He is, of course, the production designer and art director for the LotR and Hobbit trilogies, was nominated for 5 Oscars (for LotR, LotR, LotR, King Kong and Hobbit: AUJ) and won the Oscar for RotK. He kindly signed the photo I sent him (though his signature is a bit smudged), and answered my question about his favourite set – it’s Edoras – on the back of the Hobbit hole WETA postcard I sent him (and signed there again). I’m absolutely over the moon about this autograph 🙂

Dan Hennah Dan Hennah2

And today I got an autograph of John Williams, composer of the Star Wars and HP soundtracks (among many many others). An amazing success, since he is a real legend! I knew he didn’t sign photos anymore and sends out index cards, so I just sent a letter, no photo. He signed an index card and wrote a few notes on it 🙂 So cool! 🙂

Autographs in September: Eddie Redmayne & Dallas Barnett

Since my last post I got two replies on the same day:

Eddie Redmayne

I just had to send to him again, since I had only sent photos from Les Mis the last time – while he was filming Jupiter Ascending – but I found the movie Jupiter Ascending and the Abrasax characters very interesting, so I wanted his autograph on photos from that movie, too. He replied very quickly, within 3 weeks. 🙂

Eddie Redmayne3 Eddie Redmayne4 Eddie Redmayne5

Dallas Barnett

He plays Bill Ferny Sr. in Hobbit: DoS, so a great addition to my LotR/Hobbit collection, especially since he added a cool inscription, and kindly answered the questionnaire I sent him. Btw.: he’ll be at HobbitCon 2016, and challenged Mark Atkin to a gummy bear eating contest. Seems like a fun guy! 🙂

Dallas Barnett Dallas Barnett2

 added the full scans to the pages Hobbit and Other movies.

Ed Asner & Billy Burke

I got two autographs (2×2) yesterday, from Ed Asner and Billy Burke.

Ed Asner had two very impressive episodes in Hawaii Five-0, reprising his character from the old H5O-series: August March. It was a brilliant move to bring him back, and that he managed to fool the team in both episodes, almost until the end. And even then, March chose his own way out instead of going to jail. Even though this was a great turn (for the plot and a great end for the character), I would have loved to see him more often!

Ed Asner2 Ed Asner

Billy Burke was one of the best cast choices in the Twilight series, but I really loved him in Revolution. His role Miles Matheson was far from being the typical good lead character; nothing was really black and white in this series, which is why I really enjoyed that show (even though I hated the insane AI part in the 2nd season. His bromance with/bitter hatred towards Monroe (yes, both actually, and at the same time!) was just terrific and their need to work with each other certainly made up for the crappy AI part. It’s a pity that the show got cancelled after the 2nd season.

autographs since November: Simon London, Jane Abbott, Stephen Fry, Wes Studi, Natalie Dormer, John Cornell

I got a few autographs since my last autograph related post:

Simon London (Feren / Hobbit)

Simon London

Third time’s a charm in this case. Simon played the Mirkwood elf with the horn in Hobbit: DoS and who tells Legolas that Tauriel’s been banished and participates in the battle (he’s around when Thranduil decides that enough elven blood has been spilled and calls back his troops).

Jane Abbott (riding double for Liv Tyler)

Jane Abbott

She and her horse Florian were the ones doing the pre-Bruinen scene, fleeing from the Nazgul. She also played a rider of Rohan.

Stephen Fry (Master of Laketown / Hobbit)

Stephen Fry3 Stephen Fry4

I already got his autograph earlier but back then there were no photos of him as Master of Laketown; so I decided to write him again and also got an autograph for my aunt who’s a big fan of his books.

Wes Studi (Eytukan/Avatar)

Wes Studi Wes Studi2 Wes Studi3

I absolutely love the movie Avatar and I’m still trying to get autographs of the main cast, so when I saw that Mr. Studi started signing again, I wrote him and thankfully he signed all three photos 🙂

Natalie Dormer (Anne Boleyn/Tudors & Cressida/Hunger Games)

Natalie Dormer2-kasdohfsebldddf Natalie Dormer3-kasoidhoasdhaoisd Natalie Dormer-kaspoidhoasdas

I didn’t like her role Anne in the Tudors because I liked Queen Catherine of Aragon too much, but I loved to hate her and Natalie did a terrific job in that show. I also liked her very much in Mockingjay part I (and her haircut was really cool ;)).

John Cornell (Glenstorm/Narnia)

John Cornell John Cornell2

Another autograph for my Narnia collection. The spanish/latin-american actors who played the Telmarines are all very elusive but at least I got another one of the centaurs now. 🙂
