Hello My Imaginary Friends,
On Friday we met Cary Elwes. Here’s Jen’s wonderful description of meeting the Dread Pirate himself:
We asked him his favourite picture of the bunch, and he said the one where he just rescued Buttercup, but we wanted one of him as himself, so we chose him in a suit.
He asked our names, Jen and Éric, and then I said “we’re JenEric” and he paused and had a sensible chuckle (TM). He stumbled over the pronunciation of Dragon’s name, but got it right after I corrected him. He asked their ages.
Then while he was signing, I asked my question, which was “We really enjoyed you in ‘A Castle for Christmas’ and we’re wondering if you were going to do any more Christmas movies?” He said that he really enjoyed his two months in Scotland filming that, and that he liked taking challenging roles, from which I gathered that he is unlikely to do that again lol.
Then when we were about to leave, he asked to see a picture of the kids, and he said they were beautiful and that we’re very lucky.
Then we got fist bumps.
My cheeks still hurt from smiling.
He was sweet, patient, and really great to interact with. We only got the autograph and not a photo-op.
Stay safe and be kind,
