What famous person have you met personally?


I don't mean someone you saw at a concert or public event, but someone who was close enough to shake hands with or to exchange a few words.

    The name is familiar to me. I think "celebrities" who are not entertainers (or politicians) tend to be more like "ordinary" people.

    Almost forgot - when I was around 12 or 13 I met George Gately, the cartoonist who drew the "Heathcliff" comic strip. He was my first "celebrity" meeting (and I still have the "Heathcliff" paperback that he autographed with his name & a sketch!)

    It' nice when a celeb takes time to talk to a child. Vaughn Monroe, a famous singer of the old days, said hello to me in a Vegas hotel lobby. I was about ten and probably staring.

    Sorry, should have said SON of Scott of the Antarctic! Also, his godfather was JM Barrie who wrote 'Peter Pan'.

    That's quite a few-- sorry I've never heard of any of them.
