I went for a walk today at lunchtime and I met Callan Mulvey. As you may recall, Callan is my favourite person on TV.
I love the TV show Rush and when a colleague mentioned that there were film crews nearby, I had a feeling it may be Rush as I read they are filming the show again.
There were film crews and trucks and lots of people in day-glo vests. There weren't many passers by around.
I walked up to one of the trucks and saw a character in non 'tactical response' police gear walking around. I also saw a tall guy in tactical response gear and it looked like Callan.
I asked the non tactical response guy whether that was Callan, and he said yes. I asked if I could say hello. He said yes.
Callan was talking to one of the crew and I was pointed out to him.
He smiled at me, came over to chat. He remembered me from last time we met in June 2009.
I've met a few celebrities, and been very excited at most of them, but today my heart was racing and I was shaking. Nervousness is unusual for me!
Callan and I chatted for about three minutes. While I wasn't silly, I am not sure if I said anything coherent because I was actually quite nervous!
He asked me how I am, how my health is, and he told me when the new season will be on TV.
I asked for a photo and he was happy to pose.
Jolene Anderson walked by too, and I said hello.
Callan called me darling, and my heart melted.
I am incredibly excited about meeting him, and have been smiling all day.
I feel honoured that he took a few minutes out of his day to talk to me.
He is so very nice. He really made me feel special.
