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. 🙂

CCH Pounder

20.10.12 – 01.04.13

CCH Pounder (Mo’at – Avatar)

3/3 photos signed, 2 of them personalized

I’m just gonna quickly post the autographs I got this month, too tired to write a lot 😉

I already got CCH Pounder’s autograph a while ago, but then, I tried a few times before I got the first success from her – I wonder whether I’ll get the others back as well 😀

Added the full scans to the Avatar section (Other Movies -> Avatar)

2/2 photos signed, 1 of them personalized

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)!

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 🙂

Dev Patel

13.07.12 – 12.10.12

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.

I added the full scans to the Other Movies section.

Jon Curry

31.08.12 – 25.09.12

Jon Curry (“Suit” / Avatar & Deputy Tyler Barrett / NCIS)

3/3 photos signed, also added a signed and personalized 8×10 photo

In the NCIS episode “Suspicion” he played Deputy Tyler Barrett. Of course I can’t really say I take to this role, after all he’s a racist, but it was an interesting role, because we always get to see cases related to terrorism but rarely to racism, which in my opinion is an important topic too.

Also, in my 2nd favourite movie Avatar he plays one of the two “suits” who inform Jake about his brother’s death and offer him to do his brother’s job on Pandora.

He’ll also appear in the season 5 premiere of The Mentalist which airs tomorrow.

I’m very grateful for this nice answer. Thank you very much, Jon!

I added two full scans to the NCIS/NCIS:LA section and the other two to the Avatar page (Other movies -> Avatar)




Stephen Lang

18.07.12 – 20.08.12

Stephen Lang (Col. Quaritch / Avatar & Cmdr. Taylor / Terra Nova)

2/2 photos signed

Wooohoo! Although he isn’t listed on my “top Most Wanted” list, it def. was one of my most wanted autographs. I love Avatar and all the cast, even the bad guys, and Stephen Lang did such a great job playing this coldblooded bastard Quaritch. Then, on the other hand (what made me like him as an actor even more), his role in Terra Nova. It was so funny when I looked into this series because of the dinosaurs, and then heard this very familiar voice greeting the newcomers. I *really really* expected this voice to say “you’re not in Kansas anymore; you’re on Pandora”, because this situation was SO similar 😀

For quite some time I doubted (probably thanks to Quaritch & Avatar) if Taylor was indeed the good guy as he wanted everyone to believe. Lang did a great job playing this seemingly ambiguous Commander. I’m glad Taylor turned out to be a good guy after all. It’s a shame that Terra Nova got cancelled!

I’m very glad that I got his autograph now. One of the rare cases I was very patient and had written to him only once before. 😀

I added one of the full scans to the newly built Avatar page (Other movies -> Avatar; the password is the same as for the other pages) and the other one to the Other TV shows section.

Zoe Saldana

22.03.11 – 01.04.11

Zoe Saldana (Neytiri / Avatar)

2/2 photos signed, one of them personalized

Wow, what a quick success. No kidding. After I wrote her in December 2009 without success, I sent another letter just a couple of days ago. I absolutely love her performance in Avatar. It’s amazing how her facial expressions are still recognizable in this alien face. So one can really say she did a great job. I guess it must have been difficult especially to curse in the Na’vi language 😀 I’m so happy about this autograph! Now I need some more Na’vi actors’ signatures 😀

I already added the full scan to the Other Movies section.

PS: Feel free to drop in on my personal photo blog I created a few days ago and leave comments if you like the photos, and which ones you like best. 🙂

Laz Alonso

21.07.10 – 19.08.10

Laz Alonso (Tsu’tey / Avatar)

2/2 photos signed and personalized

Today a very cool success arrived. I had tried Laz Alonso via his supposed agency and got a RTS and then sent to a movie set. He not only signed the photos, but also wrote two funny dedications: On the Avatar photo he wrote “I see you!” and on the Fast and Furious photo “Do I look like a boss?” 😀 What else can I say but “Irayo!” (thanks in the Na’vi language) 😉

I already added the full scan to the Other Movies section.
