OK, so I was lucky enough to meet Matthew Rhys today. He plays Kevin Walker in the TV Show 'Brothers & Sisters', and Dylan Thomas in the new film 'The Edge of Love'. And here is how it happened My friend who knows I'm totally obsessed with B&S's Facebooked me to tell me he'd bumped into him in the street. A Welsh street? In a town with 40K people. Hmmm. I was a little unsure. I Googled his name, and our town name, and it turns out he's here to accept some kind of award from our University for his work in film and TV, as a famous Welshman. Now the fun part. A relative is President of the Uni, so I rang them, begging for all the details! The relative got held up in the House of Lords in London today, so couldn't attend the Grad.. but they spoke to someone, and I got to meet Matthew Rhys anyway! I didn't get to attend the speech though, since my 'contact' wasn't there to shout at anyone who tried to stop me going in But still.. I met Matthew Rhys. It is *insane*. His American accent in Brothers & Sisters seems so natural, yet in real life he's really, really Welsh and its his first language. If he's still here tomorrow when my relative gets back from London, they said I can attend the Graduation dinner with them to meet Matthew Rhys properly and take some photo's. Exciting. Now I'm too spooked to watch anymore B&S's as I keep expecting him to sound Welsh! He's obsessed with Wales. He LOVES it. So patriotic. Me = not so much. Anyway, there we are I'm just shellshocked that someone from Wales is now a famous LA star, with a big house, famous girlfriend(s) and all that.. and gets to live in the USA (eventhough he said he prefers Wales!) Sorry. Ignore me. I'm just excited.
