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!

A massive wait of over 2 years but well worth it!

I wrote to John at the end of May and it took about a month for a reply. John signed all the photos I sent him which was great.

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 :(

Russell Tovey

WOW! that was a long wait!

I can't remember where I first saw Russell. He has been in History boys, Gavin & Stacey, Doctor Who, Him & Her and Being Human.
I love Russell as George in Being Human. I wrote the letter to him when I first heard he was leaving the show. It's one of the greatest UK shows to be made in recent years I am sad that it has now ended :(
I wrote to Russel on 15th November 2011 and received this reply on November 1st 2012. That's almost a year LOL! I am happy to have a result though, However long I have to wait.
