I met the actor Frazer Hines today , he walked into the shop where I work, what a lovely man ! He is touring the country with his one man show and is appearing here in our local Scala this Sunday. He is best known for his appearances in Doctor Who [playing along side the second doctor ] and for his role in Emmerdale farm as the gorgeous Joe Sugden [ he is still gorgeous- how come some men don`t seem to age] He was only too happy to support my brother Andrew awareness campaign and bought a wristband from me. " Have you got your camera with you ? You can take a picture now if you like ?" - Can you believe it ,the only bloomin time I didn`t have the camera on me [the language in my head was slightly stronger -I`ve toned it down a tad now !] Making a complete idiot of myself I found myself saying- " I used to have a crush on you when you were in Emmerdale " he replied laughing they all say " use to "- I replied back
well-you`re not in it any more !
duh ! you would have thought I could have come up with something better than that ! after he left the shop I found myself rooted to the spot wondering did that just really happen ? ok who to phone first sister Ann , while texting Andrew- followed by hubby Ned ! !
Frazer is celebrating 50 years in showbiz- his show is full of entertaining stories, he has worked with some of the best Charlie Chaplin ,Michael Caine ,Michael York and Omar Sharif to name but a few, he will be talking of the highs and lows of showbiz life-I`am sure it will be a fascinating insight into his world, hurry some tickets are still available ! I know where I`ll be- Frazer has promised me that all important photograph wearing his supporters band !! One of my favourite sayings- You`re a star ! well now I`ve met a real one ! and he was lovely !
