Yet another autograph that took quite some time, though not as much as the last two. Although of the four investigators Kono is the one I like least, I still like her a lot, especially in her scenes where she can kick some bad guy’s asses, but also in the quieter scenes with Adam. They are such a cute couple – I sure hope their relationship doesn’t end in a catastrophe like her cousin’s.

I added the full scan to the Hawaii Five-0 page (Other TV shows -> H50)

Since this is – hopefully not, but very probably – the last autograph I get in 2012, I wish you all a Happy New Year!

If the last autograph took a long time, then so did this! I sent him the request after watching the movie Hannibal. Obviously I didn’t expect this to come back anymore, but the funny thing is, after all this time I just last week ordered new photos of him, to try again. I’d send him a photo of his role in Merlin now, and probably Kingdom of Heaven? I have seen him in different roles now (KoH, Merlin, also Last Legion, Reign of Fire and the Nativity Story, but pics of the first two would be more important to me. I really enjoyed his performances there. Well, I’ll see, maybe I’ll send another request eventually, but it moved down my priority list 😉

Added both scans to the Other movies page.

Oh wow, this autograph took quite some time to arrive. Ok, not the letter itself, it was postmarked at Dec. 10th, but it’s been almost 3 years that I sent this particular request – the first of four tries. I very much liked her performance in Avatar, this role of the tribe’s “mother” and interpreter of Eywa’s will, who possessed the wisdom to see that Jake survival was essential for the People.

I definitely hope we’ll see her in Avatar II and III as well (there’s no reason why not, but you’ll never know)!

Zachary Quinto (Spock / Star Trek)

I already told you in the Chris Pine post how I got to watch Star Trek 2009 just out of boredom and immediately became a fan, and Spock was and still is my favourite character in the movie. It’s so fascinating how Zachary Quinto manages to show such deep emotion in a person who pretty much purged all emotion. My three favourite scenes are the following: 3rd: The scene after Spock relieves himself of duty, when he, noticeably hurting, walks through the ship to the transporter room, where Sarek then tells him, that he married Amanda because he loved her (not for his job as embassador). 2nd: After Spock’s rescue mission to Vulcan, when he realizes that he lost his mother forever, staring at the spot where she was supposed to stand after Chekov beamed them up from Vulcan. And 1st: When Kirk provokes him by telling him that he never loved his mother, and one can see him getting more and more furious and unable to control himself but still tries, and then finally snaps and almost kills Kirk, and when he slowly comes around after Sarek calls his name.

But of course the not hurting side of Spock is awesomely acted, too, for example when Cpt. Pike makes Kirk First Officer and Spock tells him that he’s not familiar enough with human pranks, etc., and when he discovers the literally futuristic functions on the small ship of his older self (“fascinating!”) 😉

I simply love Zachary’s performance throughout the entire movie and can’t wait to see him in Star Trek into Darkness.

I’ll probably watch “Heroes” very soon (because of him), so I didn’t mind that the photo is one of Sylar in Heroes – I just wanted to have his autograph so badly. Now I can at least try more calmly to get his signature on a pic of Spock. I’m also pretty curious about his role in “American Horror Story”, but since I can’t take seeing horror movies, I probably won’t watch that one, although I heard that he was brilliant in it.

And what also impressed me very much about Zach was his commitment in the US election campaign, the way he stood up and spoke for Obama on various events.

So I’m very happy to have his autograph now, although of course I hope to get a personalized autograph from him on a pic of Spock eventually.

Added the full scan to the Other movies section, since I still haven’t decided where to put a Star Trek page *lol*

Clemence Poesy

2/2 photos signed and personalized

I very much enjoyed her appearances in the Harry Potter movies – much more than Fleur’s character in the books, where I didn’t exactly liked her because she’s so full of herself. Of course in the movie there wasn’t much time to elaborate each character but still, she seemed to be a much more pleasant person.

Miranda Otto

Miranda Otto (Eowyn / Lord of the Rings)

Aaaaaaahhh! I never ever thought I’d get this one back! Filming must have ended months ago and I never had much hope for it, because Miranda so rarely signs. I loved her performance in the Lord of the Rings movies (and Eowyn was a way better match for Aragorn than Arwen in the films ;)), and I had hoped to get her autograph since I started collecting. For some reason (I guess, money) I didn’t take the chance when she attended the RingCon 2006, and regretted it… this is an amazing surprise and so close to Christmas 🙂 Wooohohoo 🙂 *jumps around*

Her signature on the second photo is badly smudged, but at least not the one on the LotR pic. I’m very happy right now 🙂

Added the full scans to the LotR page.

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike playbill (Sigourney Weaver)

09.10.12 – 01.12.12

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike playbill, including Sigourney Weaver (Grace Augustine / Avatar)

Sigourney Weaver Playbill

Wooohoo! I wanted to have her autograph ever since Avatar came out, but always missed the opportunities somehow. Now, this is “only” a playbill (also signed by Genevieve Angelson, Shalita Grant, Billy Magnussen, Kristine Nielsen and David Hyde Pierce – at least there are 6 signatures… hers should be the one in the bottom left corner), but this is better than nothing, and now I can try to get her signature on the photos I want more calmly 🙂

Chris Pine

15.10.12 – 20./21.11.12

Chris Pine (James T. Kirk / Star Trek 2009)

1/2 photos signed and personalized

Woooooohoo! I didn’t dare to hope to get this one back, even when I saw another success from him via this set, because there have been quite a few occasions where I didn’t get anything back while others didn’t, also this time I added an IRC because I had ran out of UK stamps before. And now I got this amazing autograph! He’s great in the 2009 Star Trek movie! I have to admit, I’m not really a Trekkie, I only knew and loved Star Trek Voyager before this movie (okay, not true, I had seen Nemesis once on TV but it didn’t really stick, so it doesn’t count. Maybe I should watch it again eventually.), and I only watched the 2009 ST because I was pretty bored one day and I had set my DVR to record it earlier. I immediately fell in love with this movie and with the entire main cast (especially Zachary Quinto, but this post isn’t about him *lol*). I really liked Chris Pine’s performance as Kirk. It can’t have been easy to walk in these big footsteps – and getting beaten up and hanging around all the time *chuckle*

I can’t wait to see the sequel and see how he developed in the meantime! I’m very happy to have his autograph now! 🙂

Added the full scans to the Other movies section (until I figure out where I put a new Star Trek page for Voyager and the 2009 ST, to movies or TV shows :D)

Mercedes Masöhn

27.10.12 – 20/21.11.12

Mercedes Masöhn (Heather Kincaid – NCIS & Isabel Zampada – The Finder)

2/2 photos signed [or rather, accidentally 3… see below *;)] with lovely notes on the backsides

I’m very happy about this reply. I had already planned to send her earlier, when she appeared on NCIS, but then I forgot. Then I wanted to write her when she participated in the new series The Finder. I’m so glad she joined this show, I loved the chemistry between Walter and her role US Marshall Isabel Zampada. I got to love the show pretty quick after giving it a try although the pilot episode didn’t convince me. It’s such a pity that Fox cancelled the show without giving it a chance to develope. Instead they left us hanging with such a season ending x.X

Well, then it was too late to send her a letter via this set, so I waited and recently saw this opportunity. And then I made this embarrassing mistake not to check the envelope properly. I already wondered where the pic of Lee Pace as Thranduil had ended up, but I only thought I misplaced it somewhere in my room. Now I know, where it was *lol* It must have stuck to the backside of one of the two photos I sent to Mercedes. Thankfully she reacted in a funny way (see the 5th scan) ;D

I added the full scans (except the one of the NCIS photo) to the Other TV shows section, the other one obviously to the NCIS page.

Kate Mulgrew

02.10.12 – 10.11.12

Kate Mulgrew (Capt. Kathryn Janeway / Star Trek: Voyager)

2/2 photos signed

I already tried to get her autograph last year via venue, after I fell in love with ST: Voy. Since it’s over a year since that attempt failed, I tried again via her agency and now got a response (and very quickly). Yay 🙂

Added the full scans to the Other TV shows section, but I may have to create a new subpage for all kind of Star Trek autographs soon (at least I hope so, because I’m trying to get the cast of the ST 2009 now – although that’ll be quite a challenge!)

Russell Tovey

15.03.11 – 10.11.12

Russell Tovey (George / Being Human)

3/3 photos signed, 2 of them personalized

I didn’t think I’d get these back, so I bought his autograph earlier this year. But I’m very happy that he signed the pics eventually – after all, these were pictures of my choice, although I like the one I bought, too.

Added all three scans to the Being Human section (Other TV shows -> Being Human)

Cheryl Ladd

06.03.12 – 13.10.12

Cheryl Ladd (Mary Courtney / NCIS)

2/2 photos signed and personalized

Although I couldn’t enjoy her episode, I really liked her performance. Her role was super interesting and her acting, and David McCallum’s, especially in her last scene with Ducky, was brilliant. That’s why I wrote her. Now… why didn’t I like the episode then? Because at this time there was an overdosis of episodes which involved family members/other personal relationships of the NCIS team, and every time someone gets involved with one of them, he/she is involved in the case, and/or the culprit. And that got SO annoying at this time, that I thought, 20 minutes into this episode: “Please DON’T let Mary be involved in this case, please don’t let Mary be involved in this case, please don’t….”, and with my attention drawn to this, I feared pretty quickly, that she indeed was involved in the case… and that she indeed was the murderer was just super annoying.

That’s my live reaction in twitter to this episode, btw.:

Okay… so similarity: 2 military types who are flirting with women…. Mary said she liked men in uniform. Please don’t tell me, it’s her.

And she’s a doctor, and that drug dealer seems to be in a clinic… please please please don’t tell me, it’s her…. -.-

Oh damn it! -.- why… why do relatives/people in some kind of relationship with the team always have sth to do with the case? -.- *annoyed*

So, yeah… that totally ruined the episode for me, but it’s not Cheryl Ladd’s fault, in fact her and David McCallum’s acting was the only thing that saved the episode a bit for me. So I’m really glad I got her autograph 🙂

Dev Patel

Dev Patel (Prince Zuko / The Last Airbender)

3/3 photos signed, one of them personalized

Although many people – especially fans of the original comic – hate this movie, I really like it. I do not know the original series, nor am I annoyed by movie adaptations that don’t follow exactly the original, so it probably wouldn’t even bother me if I knew the source material. Also, I’m quite easily to impress if a movie offers a) mystic/beautiful landscapes, b) a beautiful or epic score and c) fantasy. So if they don’t screw it up by bad special effects, I’m prone to like it 😉 Having said that, I *really* liked The Last Airbender, and especially Dev Patel’s role, Prince Zuko. It’s a pity that we’ll probably never see the sequel(s). If I understand it correctly, Zuko’d become Aang’s ally and Fire Lord – I’d have loved to see that on screen.

Torri Higginson (Dr. Jordan Hampton / NCIS)

You know, sometimes I really don’t know what drives me when I select photos. Why on earth didn’t I make a screencap from one of her NCIS scenes? *sigh* I guess I didn’t expect that she’d answer and didn’t wanna waste money since I already got these two photos printed out. Yeah, I do regret… *lol*

Anyways, these photos are nice (that’s why I chose them in the first place ;)) and she looks great on them. So of course I’m happy about this awesome success, especially since I had tried 2x before to get her autographs, resulting in one RTS and one open request (open since 2 years, so probably gone forever).

Christopher Heyerdahl (Marcus / Twilight)

What a funny inscription! *chuckle* This success and the next one make me regret (again, like throughout the entire weekend) that I didn’t try to get Sean Astin via the con hotel. I even took a photo and envelopes with me, but no stamps, and the one stamp automat close to my hotel was broken, so I couldn’t get one. Grrrr! If someone else gets a success via that hotel, I’m gonna bite my own ass off!

But back to this success: SO glad that I spontaneously decided to write him (planned were only Torri Higginson and Connor Trinneer, the former leading to another success, as you’ll see in a second).

I added the full scan to the Twilight section (other movies -> Twilight).
