Fact. David Thewlis is stalking me.
I know what you're thinking:
"Alice, he's a celebrity. He's in the Harry Potter movies, for God's sake. You're just a television production manager who writes a blog. Why would he possibly be stalking you??"
Well, I don't know the answer to WHY, do I? I'm not the one doing the stalking. But I can tell you that it's happening.
SHOCKING AND TRUE FACT #1:
On Tuesday 4th September 2007, I flew from Dublin to London on an Aer Lingus flight. Who did I notice walking onto the plane in front of me? One David Thewlis. I thought little of it, except that I recognized him but couldn't remember his name at the time and it was driving me crazy. I remembered it a few days later.
SHOCKING AND TRUE FACT #2:
On Sunday 30th September 2007, I flew from Los Angeles to London on a British Airways flight. Who did I notice at gate 120, waiting for the flight? Oh, that's right.
And, to make matters even more disturbing, he arrived at the gate before me.
He's clearly not following me - he knows where I'll be before I'm even there.
I'm flying to LA again at the end of the month - if he's on my return flight again, I'm calling the cops.
It is kind of flattering though. Hmmm, do you think he reads the blog?
