episode 1: meeting the jedi

This has got to be one of the most exciting things that happened to me in London. A celebrity encounter with a Hollywood actor! Not that there was an encounter. It was more like catching a glimpse... from a distance. Around 20 feet to be precise.

On my way to Leicester to visit the missus, I found myself in a middle of a film shoot. Without realising it, I managed to walk into a film set of The Other Man at the St Pancras International Station when I decided to wander around whilst waiting for my train. Seen at the shoot were Oscar nominee Liam Neeson (yep, the Jedi master Qi-Gon Jinn) and Romola Garai- who, I was told by fellow usis (an elderly English couple), appeared in Atonement.

As you can see from the photo, paparazzo I am not. My hands were shaking a bit not only because of the excitement but more so because of it was freezing. And the security people aren't exactly very friendly. One in particular kept on blocking the view everytime I get a clear shot.
