    By virtue of my job in the airlines, I saw a variety of famous people, on some occasions got to speak with them, but I would not categorize most of the encounters as officially meeting them. I was just the chauffeur. ;)

    Yes, who?

    I'm not from the US and - as it happens - I have never even heard of 'Hollyoaks' - what is it? A movie? A TV series?

    Beautifully written answer.

    Does John Melendez from the tonight show/howard stern show count? Met him 25 years ago. And Mickey Spillane, author of the Mike Hammer books, almost 30 years ago. He probably doesn't count, either. And I remember when I was a kid being in Universal Studios and standing online to meet some actress on some show that I can't even remember. She really doesn't count.

    I have spoken with:

    • Gene Roddenberry
    • Neil Armstrong
    • Eugene Shoemaker

    Damn, is that all?

    I saw Bill Clinton and Nelson Mandela from about ten feet away but didn't meet them. My parents were good friends with Ron Wood's guitar tech and they met all the Rolling Stones at his funeral. My wife (an RN) prepped Doris Day for some outpatient work.

    Way too many to list. I spent 5 seasons hanging out at Saturday Night Live. Had a friend who was a producer so went to all the live shows and then the after parties. The stories I could tell.
