Oh my word. Chris Achilleos. What are the chances of getting an autograph Lew?
I started to say something sensible but my parents took over my brain!

I didn't have the opportunity I'm afraid, Colin. It was one of the busiest shows I've done this year and I didn't see him at the meal on the night before the con.

Don't worry about it Lew. It was more of a hope than a demand. But thanks for looking out for him anyway.

You'll hate this, but he was in the taxi with us from the station to the hotel and I didn't know who he was until the next day when it was too busy. He didn't look like I'd imagined he'd be! :)

Ach, no worries. I am actually happier that he was not a prima donna about sharing the taxi than you getting me an autograph.

I hate it when heroes turn out to have feet of clay.

He was very reserved but friendly enough. A bit timid in a way. I thought he was an exhibitor, not a guest. As for prima donna types, I can't say I've really met any at cons. The actors tend to be pretty grounded too. Or at least the ones are that I've met.
