Hmmm...What is Alex like in person???
Well remember I met him just after season 1 of True Blood. He was new to all this craziness and VERY naive about the hype.
He was shy....asked us more questions than we asked him but VERY down to Earth and extremely personable.
He was cutie-patootie basically. Met us at our table...introduced himself as "Alexander" *eyeroll* as though we didn't know who we were meeting....asked us if he could get us something and took off to order.
I don't remember details as it was three years ago but...his boots were untied, per usual.
We discussed him not getting Thor *sad face*, the fans being in an uproar about the rumor Eric was getting a haircut, to which he was surprised and he went on to explain why he had to wear the wig in the first place (crew cut due to Generation Kill) and why it was such a pain in the ass to wear for 12-16 hours a day shooting. We discussed friends, websites and other mundane things like my boring ass job and pets...(not my discussion). We were there for Paleyfest and had plans on walking there after coffee. Alex explained that the Arclight was much further away than expected, so he offered to drop us off on his way home to prepare himself for the event. It was the LONGEST 2 miles of my life!!
Although cutie patootie and polite....the man drives like a maniac!!
We brought him a few gifts from the girls at the FB site, we each took one pic with him, he signed our personal goodies and dropped us off.
He contacted me later to thank me for the gifts and....that's it... We've had chats/emails since but mainly site related.
He's much busier now and I don't think I'd ever want to meet him in public again. Too much hype with paparazzi, fans and the what-nots.
We have a few mutual "friends" that I like to see when I'm in LA for an event but I don't ask Alex to coffee anymore...lest I be mobbed by association by those mentioned above...
Now Sam Trammell...he's the laid back dude who's a riot to have drinks with!! Us girls here also run Sammy's site (which will be getting a complete overhaul soon) and we LOVE visiting our Sam! He makes us his OFFICAL bodyguards when we're with him...*eyeroll*
Both guys are fun to "work" for....for different reasons...but they're both very thankful and appreciate what we do....which we appreciate in turn....
Doesn't mean I don't have my moments...days...when I want to kick them both in their butts! It happens...after three years it's happened a few times....
But all in all we ladies have fun...love traveling to see each other...the boys...and finding yet another excuse to see each other a few months later!!
