Touched by a TV Star

Goodness gracious me, another week gone. It’s been a couple of “employee-friendly” weeks here in Australia, with the Easter weekend and last week the ANZAC Day on Friday. And yes, I am aware, it’s not simply a Day Off, but a special day for all Australians. Nonetheless, it was nice having an extra sleep-in day 

Let’s hit the Monday…. Favourite TV actor/actress you really wish you could meet. Holy moly. What a subject. What you want to experience with them (LOL… here goes my dirty mind) or what would you talk about.

You might remember we had a similar topic last year in regards to movie stars. I wrote about the day I met Pierre Brice, a French actor who did a few German movies in the 60s and 70s.

You might also remember that I used to work for the German TV station ZDF, so I have met a few “TV actors/actresses”. As far as I can remember, the conversations were pretty standard, great day, great production, Mainz (local town) is a great place, etc etc. The standard chit-chat you can squeeze into five minutes.

On an international level, though, I could think of a few people I’d like to meet, yet whether they qualify as TV or movie stars ? …  I honestly wonder whether there is a difference nowadays.
So the first one that came to mind is Della Reece, she played Tess in Touched by an Angel. Questions? Possibly would come from the conversation itself, but I’d start with what had drawn her to this role, her gospel singing career or her being an ordained minister. I guess simply listening to her sensational voice would be a thrill.

Others: John Nettles, star of the English series “Midsomer Murders” – about his time as DCI Barnaby, his co-stars or successor.Four Foxes Stars

OMG and OF COURSE, Dawn French… just let her talk and I’ll have a great time. She’s hilarious and such a great person (I’d assume). Let me not forget Dawn. LOL

Dame Edna – not sure whether I would actually be able to ask her anything, she’d possibly be like Dawn – give her a keyword and she’d hopefully not stop for hours!

And how could I forget Stephen Amell, although I have to admit, I’d probably just stare at him. I know, a bit sexist, so sue me. 

Anyway… I’d have a guess once I read through the others’ post, I’ll go “of course”, but I’m hoping this is a good start.

So tell me, which actor/actress would you like to meet and what would you chat about?

  2. Although we have readers from allover, most are not from Australia or New Zealand, so perhaps yu can enlighten them about ANZAC Day.To my knowledge, it is a day dedicated to the combined N.Z. and Australian Forces during WWII.I think it correlates to what was our Armistice Day, from WWI, which later became our Veteran’s Day.
    Della Reese had a huge singing career and she had a talk show for a while. Here is one of my favorites of hers,”Don’t You Know” featuring the music of “Musetta’s Theme” from {uccini’s opera,”La Boheme”:

    We used to watch (and greatly enjoy) the Midsomer Murders. And I liked that actor very much.
    I liked Dawn French in AbFab, but haven’t seen her in anything else.
