Leighton Meester

Leighton is most known for her role as Blair Waldorf on Gossip Girl. I have attempted to write to her several times over the years to various different addresses including through the GG production address. I never got any success from those attempts. I had all but given up.

Leighton is currently performing on Broadway in Of Mice and Men as Curley's wife. I decided to try one more time and write to her care of the theatre (Via Venue)

I was ecstatic when postie called yesterday with finally a success from one of my favourite actresses!!

I The turnaround was just 2 months which is a great time really to the states and back.

Chris Martin

No Not that Chris Martin...

Chris Martin Derby County No.9

Derby County are about to embark on their play-off journey 2014 so the fact that Chris signed my photos and replied by return is both excellent and exciting news!! He is my No.1 Favourite Rams player and this season's Top goal scorer. Lets hope that he can increase his tally in the coming 2 (Hopefully 3) games and we can celebrate Top flight Football for 2014/2015.

I know I could just have easily gone down to Pride Park and got the photos signed In Person but for me it's the personalisation that matters and you don't get that when jostling with hundreds of others at the players' Entrance :)

Mark Gatiss

I first knew of Mark when I became a big fan of the League of Gentlemen. It is my goal to collect the autographs of all 4 members of the team. I watched All 3 seasons of LOG in a week on DVD from Lovefilm.

If you look at IMDB it is actually amazing at how much Mark has done. Of course at the moment he is known mostly for his involvement with writing Doctor Who and of course Sherlock

I wrote to Mark 2 years ago and had just about given up on ever receiving a reply so it just goes to show that you should never give up waiting!

Andrew Lee Potts

This is a special one.
I have written to Andrew but that was over a year ago and I never received a reply.

This wonderful signed photo was collected for me by the partner of a very good friend who was working at a convention earlier this year.
It was a very tough time for me and this made me very happy :)

Aaron Taylor Johnson

It's fabulous when you get a nice little surprise in the post.

I wrote to Aaron 4 years ago just before the first Kick Ass movie came out.
I got a reply a year later which was just a Pre-printed photo. I was happy enough with that as I know he is a busy boy.

Today I received a hand written envelope which If I'm honest looked like my Grandma's handwriting so straight away I was curious as to who was writing to me.
I opened it up to find 2 personally signed photos from Aaron. I am extremely happy.

These are the times that make Autograph collectors like me Very Happy :)

Damian Lewis

I have liked Damian since He played Benedick in the BBC Shakespeare re-told version on Much ado about Nothing. Since then I have seen him in a lot of stuff.
He played Charlie Crews in Life. Unfortunately that got cancelled after the 2nd season. He played Soames Forsyte in the Forsyte Saga. And Major Winters in Band of Brothers.

I guess he is more recently known for playing Sgt. Nick Brody in the Award winning show Homelend.

He has also played football for England in many Celebrity Charity games.

Unfortunately I do not know when I wrote to Damian. I lost a lot of data on my hard drive. So I can't say how long it took. I don't have the address I wrote to him with either :(
