And this is the story of how she died…aka meeting Benedict at the Berlin premiere on Dec 9th.
After waiting for 12 hours in the cold and being shoved from one space to another (Hobbit premiere round up, read here) we were happily placed in the front row of the VIP Fanarea!
Surprisingly, Benedict was not the last to arrive :) He was very patient and spent much time with his fans.
When he got to our spot I asked him to sign my my sketchbook, the birthday collage. He looked at it, giggled and said something like "That is weird, this is all me!" My pen gave up at the sight of him too, but he still tried very hard to write with it XD (you can see the failed attempt on the 4th picture). Did it with another pen then, saying 'Thank you, Benedict Cumberbatch x' *eeeek* I asked him to sign my other painting too (Hobbit poster) cause everyone else signed on it. I was like ‘Could you sign near your character?’ (THE BIG FAT EYE IN THE CORNER B!!) and he said something like 'But this is [Smaug] too!' and signed on the Smoke-Smaug from Gandalf’s pipe :’D
Asked him for a pointing group picture and he agreed, not letting go of any of my drawings and instead putting up a massive ‘OMG-Face’ and accidentally - flipped us off :D he corrected his finger on the second one but unfortunately it’s not on the photo :D
Also, he skipped one of my friends while signing so we ran to another fan section and tried there. I gave him his GQ-Issue, he took it, smirked ‘Ohhh, this one’ (cheeky smile!!) so I guess he liked this shoot?? (and signed it).
Very similar to the GN experience I’ve had sort of a blackout when he was in front of us so I’m trying to remember bits now. So if I don’t remember everthing right, sorry :D The lovely @Yassammez (go follow her! She is awesome and always has amaze B pictures!! It’s the lady with the yellow hat btw ^_^) filmed it all and took photos while I was in another universe. THANK YOU AGAIN. I O U.
This is just the Benedict story, the complete one is in progress :)
Thanks for reading!!!!!
