Saturday, September 13th, 2014 - Day 9 of TIFF
Alan Rickman may not pose for photos with fans, but fans pose for photos with Alan Rickman,
That wraps up TIFF for me this year. I went downtown today but didn’t see anybody. I had such an amazing TIFF and I cannot wait for next year!
SO TELL ME HOW I FUCKING MET JOHN TRAVOLTA LAST NIGHT?!?!?!?!?! HOLY SHIT!!!!! HE CAME TO THE PREMIERE A BIT EARLY SO HE COULD MEET AS MANY FANS AS POSSIBLE!!! HE EVEN WENT TO THE OTHER SIDE A COUPLE OF TIMES TO SHAKE HANDS WITH PEOPLE!!! HE ALSO BROUGHT HIS OWN SHARPIE!!! HE IS ONE OF THE MOST FAN-FRIENDLY CELEBRITIES EVER!!! WHAT A WONDERFUL MAN!!!!!
Friday, September 12th, 2014 - Day 8 of TIFF
I went to Roy Thompson Hall today. It was my first time attending that venue this year as last year I had such bad luck there. But perhaps what happened last night makes up for that… So here I am with Gilles Lellouche who came for the premiere of The Connection.
Then I met Tye Sheridan who came for the premiere of The Forger. Now, I have room here to post the next thing, but it is so epic it deserves its own blog post. So my next post will have it. Go up…
Thursday, September 11th, 2014 - Day 8 of TIFF
So three things happened to me yesterday.
First, my friends and I were given free bottles of Cupcake Wines Sauvignon Blanc… AND tote bags!!! This is no joke!!!
Then we waited to see Martin Scorsese. He exited the building and said “When I get back” referring to signing autographs. WTF?! You’re here right now! We’re here right now! Just sign! Celebrities can be soooo extra. A few of us chased his car down but failed our mission as he went underground. LMFAO. At least we tried.
But now for the really important thing that happened…
I went to see a show called Do You Believe in Ghosts? because ROSS HULL (yeah, you read that right) was going to be in it!! So… In other words…
TELL ME HOW I MET ROSS HULL?!?!?! OMFG!!! ROSS HULL IS A HUGE CANADIAN ICON!!! I HAVE LOVED HIM FOR 18 YEARS!!!!
When I first saw him in person, his eyes sparkled in the darkness.
And his arms… We never get to see his amazing arms because he wears a suit on TV! Television does not capture this man’s true beauty. I love his eyes…
Day 7 of TIFF part 2
Here I am with funnyman Peter Kelleghan!
With Justin Kelly again. :P
Finally a picture with Julia Sarah Stone! This is the third time I’ve seen her at the festival. :P
Tatiana Maslany took our picture ♥
Afterwards I headed to Bloor Cinema to see Teen Lust - the movie I wanted to see most at TIFF this year! I was lucky the producer was giving away free tickets and I was the first person in line so i got one!
So… Amy Groening is in this movie. She played Lacey in the Deathday Cake episode of Todd & the Book of Pure Evil! She also happens to be Matt Groening’s niece… What!!!
Jon Cor is in the movie, too. He played Tom, the model that Mia had sex with on Degrassi. Woo!!!
Wednesday, September 10th, 2014 - Day 7 of TIFF (part 1)
Yesterday I was in the fan zone for the Birks Tribute. So many more people showed up than I thought would be there! I also thought it was an event for the women in the business but there were plenty of men on hand! :P
So.. Ari Millen was the first star to arrive… WHAT!!!!!
Then Rick Howland came. Zoie Palmer and Paula Amos were supposed to come. However, Zoie was filming Lost Girl so she didn’t come. Neither did Paul. :( Also, Ennis Esmer was slated to appear but he didn’t show up.
Amanda Brugel came!!! I was so happy to meet her. I told her my name is Amanda and my last name also starts with the letter “B” and she said “No way!!!”
Kate Hewlitt who was also in Sex After Kids was there.
I forget this guy’s name…
TELL ME HOW KRISTIAN BRUUN AKA DONNIE HENDRIX CAME?!?!? OMFG!!!! HE IS AMAZING!!! IT’S DONNIE!!!! AHHHHHHH!!!!!
Then here I am with Mayko Nguyen and David Reale… AKA GLEN COCO!!!
I met Julia Ross Taylor! Yes!
Me with ERICA DURANCE!!!! I told her how amazing she was in the season 2 Saving Hope finale and that I blame Joel for the situation Alex is in.
More pictures to come just above…
Here is an interview I did on Friday with two stars from Corner Gas! Sorry about the delay in posting it. Also, some parts of us talking are quiet due to loud trucks in the background so you may want to to turn the volume up!
Tuesday, September 9th, 2014 - Day 6 of TIFF
As expected, yesterday was rather uneventful. I did see some stars who I have previously met exit a certain hotel but they didn’t come over to the fans. Oh, well.
I saw Justin Kelly and Holly Deveaux in a western film Big Muddy which takes place in Saskatchewan. It was nice seeing other Canadian actors go there to support their friends.
Then I bumped into my pals Will and Krista who also saw the movie and we talked about TIFF. :)
Monday, September 8th, 2014 -Day 5 of TIFF
Today I spent most of my time at Ryerson. I waited for the cast of Whiplash to arrive. It was Miles Teller who I wanted. I was surprised at how little people were there - including a lack of media. Whiplash was actually the opening night movie at Sundance, but still.
So I met J.K. Simmons! He played J. Jonah Jameson in Spider-Man! :D My friend Lee is in the background there. LOL!
Jason Reitman was also there to support the movie.
Miles Teller arrived late. He did sign autographs and take pictures with fans… And then bypassed my area and said “Sorry!” but still signed a couple more autographs down the line. Ugh! I ran to the back to try to get him but he didn’t do anything for me. So I waited a couple of hours for him to leave. Then I got him! He signed autographs and took pictures for everybody. What a nice guy!!!
Then the red carpet for Adult Beginners happened.
There I am with Nick Kroll.
I also met Joel McHale from Community. He kind of hit on me and it was awesome.
Here I am with Mark Duplass.
I MANAGED TO SNAP A QUICK PICTURE WITH ROSE BYRNE WHO IS THE REASON I WENT THERE!!! SHE IS AMAZING!!!
Then there I am with Bobby Cannavale.
At night time I went to see Back Country at Scotiabank Theatre. It is a Canadian camping movie. It’s scary, of course. I mean, what good comes from going camping in the woods?
Back Country was written and directed by Adam MacDonald. It stars Missy Peregrym (Jenn) and Jeff Roop (Alex). Eric Balfour and Nicholas Campbell also have a role in the film.
Missy and Jeff did an outstanding job. Something heart wrenching happened and if it was real I would have been sick to my stomach.
Joris Jarsky was there to support his good old friends Jeff and Adam! :D
