I'm not going to meet Patrick Stewart this weekend, but I wish I was.  However, I've been wondering what you could possibly say to an actor in a convention that wouldn't make you sound like a totally obsessed star trek worshipper?  I'd love to hear from people who do meet him about their conversation and impressions.

Well - this is a great question for me.  In a few weeks I am going to my first convention and if everything goes well... I will get to meet Leonard Nimoy, my favorite actor.  Now, I have been racking my brain with something to say that would sound half way intelligent....and let him know how much of a fan of his I am......   a thought.....   like telling him how I've been a fan of his for a long time and how much I enjoy his work.....maybe mention something that he has done that is NOT star trek related.... that may impress him .....  

What do you think????

I had him sign my sketch of him as Captain Picard. I also gave him -- in-person -- a smaller sketch of just his face with a hand-written letter beside it, telling him exactly how I feel.

(I'm not gonna say what I wrote: that's between Patrick Stewart and me ;) )

Enjoy your first convention. (Boldly go!;) I love Nimoy too. I've always thought of him as a friendly and intellegent but I'm not sure why. I had a huge crush on James Kirk when I was a kid. Now that I'm all grown up I've got a thing for Picard. Must be men in power. Patrick Stewart just emanates confidence and passion. (I recently saw Lion in Winter and was captivated by his performance.) I think your ideas on what to say are good ones. Especially commenting about his work other than star trek. Maybe you could comment about interests you might have in common. I just read Jeannie's reply and think it's incredible to offer something personal like a sketch. (I'm totally curious about what's in the letter though).

Well thanks for the encouragement Stardoc...   and I am looking forward to meeting Nimoy...   It is funny you mention your huge crush on Kirk.  The same for me, when I was a child I was absolutely in love with Capt Kirk.  Then I remember seeing tng when it was on in the late 80s and early 90s - I thought Picard was very strong and really had something attractive about him....    But now, I find Nimoy to be truly remarkable!!  He's  just loaded with talent and has accomplished so much over the years.... not to mention I find him absolutely irresistable....   but back to the con - well - I agree with you - I like Jeannie's comment and idea also....  that is very unique!!  I thought about making something for him.... but I can't draw or anything creative like that .....  so I am still thinking....as far as what she wrote on her sketch..... well, I have some thoughts on that.... that for me, would be the easy part... sharing my feelings for Mr Nimoy.....   just the making of something would be the difficult part.....

Now, I like your idea on saying something about what we might have in common...   Well....that is difficutlt.... I don't think we have ANYTHING in common...lol...     He has a totally different lifestyle than me... totally!  He is very artistic and creative.... I am more practical!!! (I guess in some ways I am more like Spock)  -   so that would be difficult!!  But I will keep thinking...maybe something will come up!!!  Thanks for your ideas and encouragement!!!  I am so looking forward to seeing him!!

Yeah -- Look - I know what you mean. I've been going over it and over it in my head..... I am sure I will mumble something real stupid... or trip and fall down when I go to reach for his hand..... :laugh: :laugh:

But I will do my best. This is costing me a fortune to go to this thing....It's my once in a life time chance at telling him how much I am crazy about him..... I am sure I will screw it up real good some kind of way!!!     :laugh: :laugh:

You'll be fine. :)

I on the other hand, when meeting Scott Bakula, would trun beet red, stammer something, numbly and starstruck receive his atograph, and wander off staring at him.:p
