Amber Benson in Ringer saying “tell her I miss her”, in reference to Sarah Michelle Gellar’s character? The Buffy geek in me DIED.
The most hilarious part is that all of us who are HP fans didn’t even realise it was her, but the one guy who hasn’t read the books was the one who pointed it out to the rest of us XD. After she’d gone through barrier, by the way, which is where I was standing. I’m adamant that her husband must’ve handed me the tickets, because if it’d been her, I would’ve AT LEAST looked at her face and noticed as I told her where her screen was. But if she was behind him, not so much.
She went to see Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, so we all kinda decided we’d try and spot her when it finished. Kirsty and I were changing the banners in the windows by the entrance when the first folk started to leave and I realised the film was out, so I yelled over at Ross and Lou on concessions, who then promptly ran out to join us. I can’t even explain why we did that - the group of us just casually standing by the entrance CLEARLY looking for/at her as she left, but trying to act inconspicuous, was a total fail XD. We sort of wrestled with the idea of asking her for an autograph but chickened out, so instead spied on her through the windows from behind the banners. Seriously got our creep on, for sure.
I don’t even mind, I’m just ecstatic that after living in the same city but never seeing her, and knowing other folk who have, I finally got my chance too! I’m totally hoping she comes back so next time I can strike up the courage to say something. Is it weird that even tonight, I was going through potential conversational topics in my head? And no lie, A Very Potter Musical was kinda at the top of my list. Starkid, through and through.
That is all.
