I don't tend to have "heroes" and I have not met that many people whom you would consider famous. I have met, at a veriety of events and venues, David Attenborough, Derek Jacobi, Bill Owens, Benjamin Zephaniah, Fay Weldon, Michael Palin and a number of others that I can't quickly bring to mind. Of course living as I do in London one sees well known faces all the time. I don't think I have ever been tempted to go up to someone "cold", but none of the above have disappointed me!

That's quite an impressive list! I think I would dare approach someone I really admired,that has not yet happened... My list is very short, Kevin Bacon and his wife in a street in NY and a rapid glimpse of Alec Baldwin in a shop in the same city. Mustn't forget Rod Stewart when I was about 18 years old !

Only half concentrating I once stopped to have a conversation in the supermarket with (the now late) Pete Postlethwaite - he looked so familiar that I thought he was someone I knew... oops! I can't recall what he or I said but I can remember the feeling of intense embarrassment as I realised my error a moment too late...

That's good to hear.

Re. Rod Stewart, I forgot to mention that I once encountered Freddie Mercury in the lobby of an Edinburgh hotel. He was on the phone and was cross (travel or performing arrangements had been found lacking!).

Oh no!
