I just realized that I never finished posting my pictures from the Hub 7 Torchwood con back in 2011. The first time I met John Barrowman. And we flew to London only two weeks after we had been in Cardiff for the John Barrowman concert. No, I am not crazy, I am completely normal, why do you ask? LOL

Picture with John Barrowman - still one of my favorites

Story about how John Barrowman caught the thief in the hotel at 2 AM


But I also met Kai Owen there - actually for the second time, the first time had been a year before in Germany, picture here

And Joseph Lidster, who is not an actor but an author:

Actually also "Gwen's parents" (from "Miracle Day") were there but I forgot to go there when the time for the photo was and was not that much bothered about them.

When I first heard the song "When I get my name in lights" which fits so well for John Barrowman, I immediately had this image in my head and wanted to create it. The old-fashioned way, with scissors and paper. My hands want to feel the stuff, I am not made for computer-art. As you can see, I also got it signed by John at the HUB7-convention in November 2011, London.

Here you can find some close-up pictures and explanations )

I just remembered a few bits and pieces of the things Daniele told us on stage, and wrote them down before I forget them again. They are in no particular order.

Daniele was asked how much he actually has seen of "Doctor Who" and "Torchwood". He never has seen any of the Doctor but promised when he gets home he will start, and at least he recognized the TARDIS on my t-shirt when I walked over to him to get my photo shot. But he did watch the early Torchwood episodes because a friend had said that it was good. That was before he had gotten the role. But after he had the role, he stopped watching because he wanted Angelo to have this naive approach to Jack, he did not want to know too much about him, he wanted Jack to be mysterious to him. After the shooting had ended, he watched it all till "Children of Earth" and he liked this very much.

Hi! Back home from London where I got cuddles, autographs and get to sit at the same table like John Barrowman, here is the first story from the con, as people have asked. Try to imagine his very own way of not just telling stories but acting them all out!

The question was: "Please tell us about your real life heroship this week".

So, on Thursday, John just came from his concert in Newcastle - some fans from Newcastle gave a shout then in the audience - and he was checking into his hotel in Glasgow. It was 2 AM in the morning. He just had brought his parents to their room and was now in his own room, together with the concierge, as the room was not cold enough for John's liking - he likes to sleep very cold (to keep the wrinkles from getting too deep *wink*)

Then they heard a scream from the room opposite of his parents. A young couple was in the hall and yelled: "Hold him!" and they saw a young boy dash down the hall. John's mother came out of her room, with night cream in her face (I should add that she also was sitting in the audience, listening to this story) and then also John's Dad came out, scratching his - um, well, John showed where he scratched. Use your imagination.

Yes, I know I'm crazy, but it's The Barrowman!
So, I just bought a ticket for the next HUB from 25.-27.11. in London-Heathrow. Yesterday they announced John Barrowman as the first guest and I cannot let slip this opportunity for a picture and authograph by. Who knows when he will come again.

It's rumored that they try for more guests of the new Torchwood, so maybe we will even get Bill Pullman?

So, two weeks after the JB concert in Cardiff I will fly to the UK again - the fourth time this year after RDA in Birmingham and David Tennant in London. Should really get a flat over there or something.

Barrowman time is starting today with the first episode of "Miracle Day" and tomorrow also "Tonight's the Night" is going into its third year.

If anyone of you is coming to the con in London, please let me know so we can meet up! Here is the link to the official page: http://massiveevents.co.uk/hub7/
