Ladies and gentlemen and everyone else in that beautiful spectrum whom are kind enough to watch me, I spent an evening last night on May 4th listening to the veteran actor and legendary Bounty Hunter Jeremy Bulloch, presented by a geordie magician called Chris Cross (a charming man with a knack for escapology). And let me tell you something...Jeremy is essentially everyone's favourite gentle grandfather whom can still do the voice, the man has been in so many films, TV shows including Doctor who (he was in the Time Warrior as the archer!) and was a character in one of the old Bond films and yet we all know and love him most as the most badass bounty hunter in the galaxy. Now before Jeremy gave his talk there was a nerd screening of STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS (because screening EMPIRE STRIKES BACK would cost far too much, I know that feel DX) and before the film started we could get photos with Jeremy and get a signed poster. I unfortunately didn't have an VIP ticket, so I couldn't get a photo but I did manage a few other tricks, as you will see.
That is me with one of my all time heroes (technically a villain but more of a gray morality warrior, also that's not jeremy in the armour)
this is Jeremy!
This was a kindly Mando-Bro whom gave me a spare signed poster he had when he learned I couldn't get my photo with Jeremy, Mandalorians gotta stick together yo!
after the screening, we want Jeremy!! (Darth Vader popped by to see his favourite bounty hunter!!)
Chris Cross the magician interviewing Jeremy, loved his Q&A and wait a minute--!
JEREMY IS HOLDING BEARBA FETT!! Yes I asked him he wanted to hold the bear and he said yes (lovely man!)
For the finale Chris Cross did an escapology act from an Asylum brand straitjacket, and I volunteered to act as the timer. He made it in just One minute 30 seconds thus escaping the jacket but not necessarily the bounty hunter. When I got bearba back Jeremy said he was gonna get one just like him in Australia, he's done a lot of filming all around the world and he recommends Japan (he can do the language so fluently)
Someone made a cake, looks far too good to eat
Aside from the signed poster I also bought a portrait done by an artist called Simon Henderson, and his wife offered to have Jeremy sign it for me whilst I got cash from the local pub...so yeah! This is my bounty Swag!
now one of the finest mandalorian warriors watches over me, I feel safe and nerdy. What a convention, what an evening.
May the 4th be with you (I know it's a day late but shut up! DX)
