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. 🙂

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! 🙂

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

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. 🙂

Dayo Okeniyi

19.08.13 – 04.01.14

Dayo Okeniyi (Thresh / Hunger Games)

3/3 photos signed, one of them personalized

This is a nice first autograph of 2014! Of course the tributes’ roles in Hunger Games are all pretty small but Thresh did play a (literally) vital part in the 74th Games, and Rue and Thresh were certainly the most likable tributes.It’s a very nice addition to my Hunger Games collection, which reminds me that I need to get started with writing to the tributes of the 75th games. 🙂

I added the full scans to the Hunger Games page (Other movies -> HG).

I wish you all a Happy New Year!

Hunger Games – Catching Fire premiere

Again, a very short post, but I wanted to show my successes. I’m very pleased and content with the autographs I got. It was worth the wait!

First I got Elizabeth Banks (on a character photo and a photo with the movie symbol… like a poster but not a poster but a 8×10 photo ;)), then the producer, Nina Jacobson (on the “poster”), then Josh Hutcherson (on a collage of my favourite scene of the trailer, Katniss and Peeta at the parade) – generally, he signed SO much and took photos with so many fans! He was actually adorable… I didn’t think he was so short! -, then Liam Hemsworth (only on the poster pic :/ not on a character pic) and finally Jennifer Lawrence (on the collage that Josh had signed). She also signed a lot, didn’t take photos tough, because she rather wanted to sign as much as possible.

After that I went to the back door and to our surprise Josh signed a lot more and took more photos there, for probably 10 minutes or so. The others had already gone. I got another autograph (on the poster pic), and a photo with him. 🙂

So it was a really successful evening!

Stanley Tucci

08.07.13 – 16.10.13

Stanley Tucci (Caesar Flickerman / Hunger Games)

Stanley Tucci

1/1 photo signed

2012 continues to be a weak autograph year, with an occasional success. Especially since Catching Fire will air soon, I’m very grateful for this success now. He is awesome as Caesar Flickerman in the first movie! I think that he is so well known by his name, and I (apparently, as I found out after watching the Hunger Games) had seen him in Margin Call – but I would not ever have recognized him. Now, that I know, I see the similarity, if course, but hardly. He seems to be like a chamelion. If you put photos three roles I know know him for – in Hunger Games, Margin Call and the new Percy Jackson movie, next to each other, it’s as if there’s a completely different actor every time. I find that very weird, but fascinating 😀
So I’m very glad to have his autograph now. But my general autograph success rate is way too low for me to really enjoy this hobby at the moment.

Amanda Plummer

22.07.13 (?) – 03.09.13

Amanda Plummer (Wiress / Hunger Games)

Amanda Plummer

1/1 photo signed

Well, that was a surprise… because I think this was one of the letters which I thought had gotten lost and mixed up. But I’m pretty sure, I only asked in my first letter if she would add a quote from her role Wiress. Also, in my second letter I added another photo (and she seems to sign everything via this address. So I’m pretty confused, but of course, happy about this autograph. As I mentioned in the post before the last, I can’t wait to see the second Hunger Games movie, and I’m really curious about her interpretation of Wiress. Can’t have been easy to play this role!

Sam Claflin (Philip / PotC IV and Finnick Odair / Hunger Games)

3/3 photos signed and personalized

I had already planned to write him after seeing him in Pirates of the Caribbean IV, but I decided not to, at that time, because – though I liked his performance – in my opinion it was the least interesting PotC movie. But after watching Hunger Games and reading the book, and realizing that he would play Finnick in the next movies, I just needed to write to him, and got a pretty quick answer 🙂 Can’t wait to see Catching Fire!

Willow Shields

08.07.13 – 13.08.13

Willow Shields (Primrose Everdeen / Hunger Games)

3/3 photos signed

It took me a while to watch the first Hunger Games movie. I wanted to when it was in the cinemas, but since I didn’t find anyone to watch the movie with, I didn’t go. For Catching Fire I certainly won’t make the same mistake again – and I won’t have to, because I “have to” go at least twice with different people 😀 Anyways, now I’m addicted to this series as well. After watching the movie I ‘devoured’ all three books on one weekend, and I can’t wait to see Catching Fire. I loved Willows performance as Prim in the first movie. Her screams when she realized that Katniss volunteered for her and wouldn’t be around anymore and would probably die, went right under my skin. Also I like the glimpse that we saw in the Catching Fire trailer.

Added the full scans (of all three photos) to the newly made Hunger Games section (Other movies -> Hunger Games) since I hope that more of my recent requests will be successful 🙂
