Celebs

Seen by me on public transport this week, Patsy King of Prisoner (Cell Block H);  famous from the role of prison governor Erica Davidson, and Julia Blake, first known to me from the movie Travelling North,  a very accomplished actor and wife of Terry Norris, also an actor, former boxer and Labor politician. The movie also starred the late actor Leo McKern of Rumpole fame.

Not on public transport, but walking his kiddies to St Kilda primary school, Brian Nankervis, host of SBS RockKwiz.

  2. It's the strangest thing when you see someone famous, or at least well known, going about their everyday business.. Wonder who you'll see next :)

  4. I was waiting for a table to become available in a StKilda restaurant and was offered a stool at the bar. On the next stool was the very tall, very cute tennis player, Boris Becker. We spoke for the 7 most important minutes of my life :)

    1. Becker, hey Hels. The German bad boi with your favourite coloured hair. You must have been swooning.

  5. I don't think I've ever seen anyone famous...oh wait. I saw George H. W. Bush from a distance in Maine. Does that count?

  6. I don't think I have ever seen anyone famous. Or perhaps simply didn't recognise them...

    1. EC, you kind of have to be sitting and gazing around. I never see anyone when I am walking.

  7. I've met a few celebs and was only impressed (favourably) with one. Oh wait, does the Dalai Lama count? He has the most impish sense of humour. I rather liked John Cleese as well.

    1. Jac, sorry to say I find the Dalai Lama irritating but I am impressed that you met him. Sister's friend's teenage son met Cleese and surprised him by slapping him with a fish. I think it something to do with Python.

  8. I passed Brian once, on oh I forget the name of the street in St Kilda. He was mumbling away to himself, I had to try not to grin like a fool!

    1. Fen, maybe rehearsing lines? Or he is just typically a St Kilda person.

  9. Brian looks a bit like our old Premier Don Dunstan, same head shape.
    I've seen Billy Joel in Rundle Mall several years ago now, he was walking along eating an ice cream cone.

    1. River, even the hair is somewhat similar to Dolly Dunstan's. What a boringly ordinary thing eating an ice cream cone is. He should have been staggering along with a ciggie in one had a bottle of vodka in the other. Goodie two shoes are so boring.

  10. Celebrity spotting! Seems so unlike the Andrew I know.

    1. Au contraire Victor. Seeing Nankervis walk his kids to school, seeing Ms Blake run for the tram and then clutching her side in pain and Mrs Davidson complaining to the tram driver that the tram was late were all quite priceless. I can't help what I see. I don't deliberately do celeb spotting. I don't do Kardashian type celeb stuff.

  11. I saw Brian in Balaclava a few months ago. I knew he was a celebrity but I didn't know his name. So...thank you!

    1. Ad Rad, that is so annoying when you spot a celeb and can't think of their name.

    Brian Nankervis's kids are all teenagers. I doubt you would have seen him walking them to St Kilda Primary.

    1. Thank you Terrence. I did make assumptions about what I saw.
