This is a question Never Meet Your Heroes

They're bound to disappoint - like the time we booked Wayne Hussey for the B3ta Radio Show. Five minutes before we're due to record, Wayne
phones, lost on the M25 with his Brazilian wife screaming in the background. Not so much the King of Goth, as a hen-pecked flake.

Not really a hero of mine but
rather nice anyway...

The campus where I work is often used as a location for films (particularly period films set in and around London). So, we have had our fair share of Hollywood stars here (Jackie Chan, Angelina Jolie, and if you go back about 18 years or so, Harrison Ford).

Anyway, about a year or so back, I met Clare Danes. Very nice looking, and apparently friendly. Trouble is, I didn't actually get to speak to her, as I had walked into her (literally) while she was hanging around the set in costume, and was dragged away by a couple of large extras before I could apologise.

Angelina Jolie was a different kettle of fish. Didn't meet her at all. She actually had a tunnel built from her trailer to the hall where she was filming, purely so she wouldn't meet any fans.

Jackie Chan was totally the opposite. Not only was he happy to talk to us, but he was also happy to leave a message in a colleague's leaving card.
