So, if you have read Satin and Steel, you probably know that I am a HUGE SOA fan. In particular, I find Charlie Hunnam’s range and acting prowess to be truly beyond the pale. I have never made an effort to meet a celebrity before, and even though I was in excruciating pain, (and ended up in the damned hospital right after meeting him), the effort was really motivating. My impressions of Charlie:
1. His mother did well! His brother was with him, and he is also extremely good-looking. I believe he has several more brothers, and as the mother of one extremely active boy (yes, his name is Jax), I have mad respect for Mrs. H.
2. He’s boyish, charming, and kind. He ensured that every fan got their items signed, and he signed more than one picture for me.
3. He is intelligent, and this feature is by far the most attractive thing about him (besides the Adonis-like hair, facial structure, lean body and height, of course!).
4. He is not cocky or full of himself-he’s down to earth and seems to sincerely appreciate his fans. I think the likability factor, combined with his ability to discern roles that will advance him and allow him personal growth, are what contribute to his rapid ascension to super stardom. I sure hope he maintains this degree of affable, boyish charm.
So, while standing there trying not to faint, I was able to explain to Charlie that his work has permanently altered the story arc of my life. Thanks to him, and SOA, I was inspired to write a piece of fan fiction that is well-received and gaining momentum on Amazon. Charlie seemed impressed that I wrote a book (he is also a writer, after all), and he signed my book cover! Wow, seeing that signed cover has helped me through these challenging medical issues. Also, he seemed really excited that I was wearing his girlfriend’s crescent moon necklace. Tara also wears this on the show, and during a slightly inebriated experience watching the finale this season, I bought the necklace for myself for Christmas. Meeting Charlie was my early birthday present. I’ll post links to Maison de Morgana’s site and the necklace, and also some pics!
Despite the setbacks, this year is off to a great start! Check out my signed book cover below, and links to the crescent necklace.
