For tonight, I was sitting next to Freema Agyeman!
Well, technically it was her boyfriend and then me, but come on! OMG I nearly died, and I was despereately trying to text in_the_end but my hands were shaking so much. Jessica was sitting a few rows behind me, and directly behind me was Rebekah Staton who played Jenny/Mother in Human Nature/Family of Blood. Her and Freema were having a good old chat before the show started. During the screening Freema wand Rebekah were really into it, laughing loudly and making worried sounds at the appropriate moments. Of course Freema laughed loudest when David was on screen, and especially loved the references to his hair. ;)
Afterwards I managed to summon up the courage to ask Freema if she minded having a photo with me when we left the screening room. She was so sweet and gracious and said yes of course. She followed me out and took me to one side so we could take the photo, in the mean time whilst my mother was trying to figure out how to use the camera, we had a little chat, she was asking me if I was there because I was friends of Jessica, and my mother chimed in and said no it was a massive fan of David...thanks Mum, way to not make me look like a dork lol. She said she had spoken to David earlier and he was really sorry he couldn't make it.
I figured seeing as my fangirl cover was now entirely blown, I'd tell her what big fans my friends and I are of her. I told her how in_the_end told me she hated me when I text her which made her laugh, and how my friend gryffinclaw and I run freema_love with some others, which she was surprised but really touched by. She still seems so surprised by the attention she's getting. She also spoke to another girl about Torchwood, and she said she's been having a wonderful time on it.
So yes, Freema is entirely made of all things awesome, she's every bit as lovely as we assumed, a good guage of that is my mum was won over by her, she's a sucker for politeness. My luck is often so rotten, that I'm incredibly thankful for last night.
The photos I took with my phone didn't come out wonderfully, but the one with my digital camera is ok. I edited myself out though, so please don't use it as an excuse to pass this picture as one of your own. ;)
I'm pretty fuzzy on details because I'm still so hyped up, so if you have any question about anything I left out, please ask.
