Re: London Film and Comic Con

Uh... oh... I kept telling myself I couldn't do it because I am already going to London for other events in July, but around midnight I gave in and bought a day ticket for Saturday and a BC Diamond Pass.

Re: London Film and Comic Con

I finally got to meet Benedict and he is as lovely in person as everyone says he is, super friendly! He had so many people to get through in terms of photoshoots and autographs and he must have been exhausted by the end of it but he still took the time to make each meeting personal. I ended up getting a few photos including joint ones with BC and Mads Mikkelsen and BC and Benedict Wong who are also both super nice!

I got two of my drawings signed and he said they were beautiful and asked how long they took to do and I also got the Third Star script book signed and as I'm going camping in Pembrokeshire in two weeks we talked a little bit about it and he said he would like to go back (maybe I should have invited him camping http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png
).

It was such a good weekend, I don't think I've stopped smiling yet.

I took some photos at the talk and they're posted on Cumberbatch web, someone's talk report is on there too.

Re: London Film and Comic Con

Great anecdote! Thanks for sharing. I wonder how he would have responded if you had invited him camping, lol. Also, your outfits match!

Re: London Film and Comic Con

Haha I know, I kind of wished I had said it just to see what his reaction would have been.

Yeah, we Cumber-matched as my friend said (groan). The funny thing is the day before I was wearing a dark denim shirt and he was wearing a light blue top, we looked liked we had switched shirts! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/lol.png

Re: London Film and Comic Con

Thanks for sharing the pictures, Lis. They're lovely!  So funny about the Cumbermatching!

Re: London Film and Comic Con

Lovely pictures, thank you for sharing Lis. I was only there on Saturday and felt exhausted after a few hours. Kudos to Benedict who must have seen thousands of people during these two days. I have seen him a few times now and he was always very kind and welcoming towards his fans. He is a true gentleman.

I also got my Third Star skript signed, and would love to visit Pembrookshire someday too.

The highlight for me was the talk on Saturday, very insightful and highly entertaining. I was surprised that he took the time to answer so many questions from the audience.

Re: London Film and Comic Con

Thanks guys!

Hope you had a great time on Saturday Diva, his talk was brilliant wasn't it! I'm glad that a lot of people got to ask their questions, it felt a bit like an informal chat. Benedict really does come across as a very genuinely sweet and funny person, I loved all his answers.

He was very sweet with the little girl who asked him what his favourite colour was http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/love.png


I was knackered by the end of Sunday but it was definitely worth it!

That's cool you got the book signed too! I've never been to Pembrokeshire before so I'm really looking forward to it, definitely have to visit Barafundle Bay and Benedict said Tenby is nice so will be going there too

Re: London Film and Comic Con

Thank you.
I managed to catch(an illegal? http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/shocked.png
) recording where Benedict was asked who Sherlock should fall in love with.
One of the girls in the group where it was posted, made a comment about him going off at tangents.
Irked me a bit.
Benedict is a highly intelligent and thoughtful guy: he considers questions carefully and gives the most full and honest responses he can.

Re: London Film and Comic Con

I think his spontaneous answer was John Watson and then he added it would have to be Molly or something like that. Maybe he did not want to annoy anyone.
