I’m still buzzing over meeting Nat Parker on Saturday with my friend.
We didn’t see the play today but as we had tried 3 times to meet up to see Nat and each of these occasions didn’t happen we were both determined that Saturday 18 May was to be the day.When I met Nat a couple of months ago I told him I would be coming up to the theatre on his birthday with a special birthday surprise so I had bought him a birthday card and some cakes.
My friend and I met just after 1pm and went straight to the stage door. We so lucky that we decided to met at this time because when I met Nat before he was really late like 2.05pm but this time he was early.
There were already a group of fans of Helen Mirren there waiting for her and she arrived literally within about 10 minutes of us arriving so I told Donna to keep an eye out for Nat and went into the crowd to see if I could get an autograph which I did and I managed to get a photo too of Helen. Just as she was going into the theatre I heard Donna yell it’s Nat, Sarah there’s Nat and was like ‘WHERE!!’ he was literally in the entrance of the stage door so I yelled NAT NAT and thank fully he heard and came back out.. There were a few others that wanted him to sign stuff so I let them go first and took piccies of him whilst I waited.
He looked so good and smelt pretty damn amazing in real life.
He finally turned to me and I said ‘Happy birthday Nat’ and I gave him my card and cakes and he was so funny he said ‘sshhh don’t tell anyone’ and said ‘Oh thank you so much’ I asked for a photo with him and I snuggled up to him. Notice how his fingers are entwined in my hair of the photo of me with him!! Lol
My friend then had her photo with him and I said enjoy the cakes and he said I will thank you and said goodbye and then he was gone. :(
After he had gone just looked at each other like did that just happen? We were smiling and giggling for the rest of the weekend I still can’t believe how gorgeous he was.
Oh and we met Helen Mirren just before Nat arrived (see the last photo) who was lovely too, I managed to get a personally signed flier.
