Gina McKee went to the matinee of The Witness at the Royal Court Upstairs today. Presumably to make up with Pippa Bennett-Warner's Cordelia after the sisters fell out in Lear at the Donmar. In the play that is. :)

And Andrew Scott was at the Love Love Love matinee downstairs. He was possibly the youngest person in the audience.

Saw Alan Rickman at The Roundhouse to see TheTempest.

Asked him for autograph, Rickman refused and so I reminded him in no uncertain terms it was his duty as it was us that had made him etc ;)

I've seen Andrew Scott a couple of times at the Royal Court, suspect he is stalking me. However he must have booked for the wrong date for Love Love Love as I saw it a couple of weeks ago ;)

There was an American gentleman with pointy elbows next to me at Posh on Saturday. Turns out there's an excellent chance it was teevee's Jon Hamm. So there we are. :lol:

I cannot believe I haven't posted on here that I finally joined the club by seeing Alan Rickman at the theatre! He was at the last Wednesday evening performance of Hayfever.

Also saw Philip Glenister at the Crucible in Sheffield on Saturday night for the final performance of Betrayal starring his pal John Simm.

Did Rickman respond appropriately during the curtain call?
