I would liken my recent trip to Berlin to the current National Theatre production the Emperor and The Galilean.
An epic journey with both old and new friends. Fun was had, too much was drunk and mistakes were made.
All in all, I came out the other side better for it! Bumping into one of my best pals at the airport was surreal.
My actor friend has penned a play to make it’s stage debut in the new year so look out for FOG. It was a trip of contrasts
were I made new friends, bonded with old ones. Partied on the 14th floor building overlooking both sunset and sunrise
(it was orrrrrn on the dancefloor!), and stood in silence at the Holocaust Memorial.
Back in London Town and in full recovery, I had the chance to attend the world premier
of the final Harry Potter movie with a good friend that works in the industry
and has interviewed all of the stars. What a premier to be my first taste of the red carpet.
Trafalger Square was rammed and walking past TV crews in front of the
National Gallery was something to be taking in for a moment (for life). The red carpet took me
about 25 minutes. It include owls, death eaters, Diagon Alley set, dude from made in Chelsea
and some crazy fans!
Watching the footage on the main screen was amazing. I had Jonathan Ross
and Tom Felton near me. I had managed to squeeze in the previous one on my itunes
just before I left and I am so glad. The last instalment is Great! and as good as the forth which is my favourite.
Enough about the movie. It was then onto Old Billingsgate for the after party.
Champagne reception, bowl food, canapes, food bars, candy floss, chocolate fountain and pic n mix,
I was off straight away as I rolled up my sleeves and got stuck in. After a couple of
mojitos I felt brave and approached Ozwald Boateng. The tailor is an ICON!
But what was said is between us.
I also had a chance to chat with Darren Criss of Glee fame about his current trip in london.
His friend told me that they were in a stage show about Harry Potter called A Very Potter Musical.
This can be found on youtube. I can honestly say I would love to work with both these gentlemen.
Unfortunately I was canceled for Black Eyed Peas. Alton Towers only wanted their Photographer.
I think it’s good to share both the ups and the downs in ones career.
It’s one of those things that has not been the
first or the last time. I expect my paths with the grammy award-winning group with cross in the future.
Well, I leave for Western Super Mare soon as I am at T4 opn the Beach all day tomorrow.
The guest list includes Jessie J, Wretch 32, Katy B and the cast of Made In Chelsea (really not a big deal).
