I know the title might sound too much but that's exactly how I felt when I tried to get their autograph. When I started hounding the Harry Potter cast for autographs, they were already quite big. They quickly became the most beloved young stars of our time, so of course, I wanted their autographs.
However, I didn't want to endure another red carpet premiere of a "Harry Potter" film. It was simply too much for me! Too many screaming children. Too many scrunched up families. And not enough space. I've endured my fair share of red carpet horror stories in my time, but "Harry Potter" premieres were the worst! and so I chased them when they would go on their press junket instead. Every time they'd stop by a talk show, I'll be there with my pen and posters ready.
While it wasn't so easy, it also wasn't as insufferable as attending a red carpet premiere. For my "Order of the Phoenix" posters, I first got Radcliffe to sign them when he went to a late-night talk show. I was quite surprised that he went as a guest at such a program. Though he wasn't all that young anymore then, it still wasn't the crowd that I thought suited him. Emma Watson, on the other hand, was the opposite. I got to her at a morning talk show in New York. It was a great coincidence that we were both there that day!
And what of Rupert Grint? I got my friend, who's a journalist, to get him to sign my posters. Thankfully, he's a very nice lad so he didn't mind that after an interview, the journalist asked him to sign a few posters. I guess Radcliffe and Watson's autographs convinced him to do it too.
As for the rest of the cast, I just let my team handle them during a premiere. That's no longer my scene, man! Well, at least not for family movies!
Please note: Our inventory is limited as we may have only received a few posters in total. Most of our items are obtained from film premieres, studios, and from autographed hounds such as the one in the story above.
