I met Mark Gatiss!
I thought I saw Rupert Graves and walked up to him. It turned out not to be him, but as soon as I turned around the actual Rupert Graves had just finished his scene and Mark was there too. They hugged each other and the Rupert look-a-like told be to go up to them. Rupert already got into his car. I decided to get into the corner shop next to it to wait for Mark to be free to talk to. Eventually I walked up to him and said “Mr Gatiss?” He looked up. “Would it be okay if we took a picture?” “Yes of course.” A guy that stood there took it for me and Mark saw my pink phonecase:
“Oh the pink phone case!” Then the guy wanted a picture and I said “I hope I’m not shaking too much.” They were standing with their back to the sun so I said “We should turn around because the sun is behind you.” Mark smiled and said “Oh, she’s a professional!” When the guy left I said “Can I just thank you for Sherlock because it’s helped me through a hard time in my life around which I started watching it and it was just the ultimate distraction for me.” Mark smiled and said “Thank you. That’s lovely. A pleasure.” and that’s how it happened!
