A Fan's Account Of Meeting Alex at The Twelfth Night

Again it involves Twelfth Night. haha!

It was July 1st. I had a ticket to see Billy Elliot and because the night before we'd seen 'Twelfth Night', we were both wiped and didn't wake up early enough the next morning, we were gonna take a break from the show. (BTW I say we because my friend Kerry who is a huge Anne Hathaway fan, flew in from Sacramento for the week). So I went to my show, which I really enjoyed! and she ended up heading to the Delacorte and 'watched' the first act from Belvedere Castle. Second act she decided to try and ask for better seats from people leaving the show and ended up sitting 5th row in section E (senior section). My show let out around 11:00 PM so I started walking back to the dorm. She calls me just as I'm approaching 59th saying the show just let out and that I should come to the stage door. I didn't really want to but I thought "what the hell, why not?" and because I still really wanted a picture with Hammish Linklater). So I hopped in a cab (because I wanted to make it in time) and got to the Delacorte shortly after. There was a surprisingly small amount of people at the door that evening. I guess they were having a Bank of America thank you night for the cast after the show so it took the cast extra long to get out (which was fine).

Oh! I happened to be wearing my Fangtasia shirt that day. And some girl saw the back and started laughing. I turned and asked whats up and she said it was just funny because "he was here." I didn't fully understand what she meant until I looked over behind the gate and there was a tall blonde man talking with Stark. it was then I knew that Alexander Skarsgard was there that night. I started freaking out a bit. I had totally said in passing one day a couple weeks ago to my friends that it would be so awesome if he showed up to see Stark (who'd been in Generation Kill with him). And holy crap he did! Lucy Liu was there that night too (-that was cool because I loved her in AM)! I waited 'patiently' on the grass (which means I was freaking out and hyperventilating haha)

After about ten-fifteen minutes he strolled out. He's gorgeous in RL. And tall (which I expected). I quickly asked him if I could have a picture and showed him my shirt laughing that it was pretty great that I'd worn it today. He sorta smirked and looked at his friend and said "Oh God" haha. I tried to get on my tippy toes to add a little bit to my height but FAILED. XD I said thank you when we finished and told him I loved the show. (I was going to say his character was my favorite from the books but my brain was mush at that point) He went on his way, taking another picture with a couple other girls.

I continued to wait for Hammish who did actually come out but ran back in (which I later discovered was to take pictures with some of the Bank of America people and the rest of the cast). Anne came out shortly after (I hid from her haha) and thankfully most everyone left after that (fans I mean). So Kerry, me, a couple of girls waiting for Raul and a family of three were left waiting. Stark came out first and laughed asking what number this way. I said I hadn't actually seen the show tonight and motioned to Kerry saying she had. I showed him my shirt saying something about how I hadn't worn it on purpose and he read it and laughed "Oh Alex was here. haha. He's hilarious." or something to that effect. I think we talked some more but I really don't remember. OH! I do now. The girl with the her parents asked him about the best part about doing the show and he said it was such an amazing cast. And that he was so lucky to be able to be on stage with Raúl and Audra and to sing with them (and Annie too). And there was more to it but again I don't remember)XD

Finally, Hamish came back out (actually I thin Hamish came out before Stark... either way...) and I got my picture with him. He thanked us for waiting for him and I just smiled (I think I told him he did a great job tonight... even though I hadn't seen the show :P).

Thanks for bringing this over here! *thumbs up* Lucky girl!

BTW...this is the monologue Stark's character, Sebastian, delivers in the fourth act of Twelfth Night. It's obscenely beautiful and poetic, so please, allow yourselves to imagine Ficky-poo saying this:

This is the air; that is the glorious sun;
This pearl she gave me, I do feel't and see't;
And though 'tis wonder that enwraps me thus,
Yet 'tis not madness. Where's Antonio, then?
I could not find him at the Elephant:
Yet there he was; and there I found this credit,
That he did range the town to seek me out.
His counsel now might do me golden service;
For though my soul disputes well with my sense,
That this may be some error, but no madness,
Yet doth this accident and flood of fortune
So far exceed all instance, all discourse,
That I am ready to distrust mine eyes
And wrangle with my reason that persuades me
To any other trust but that I am mad
Or else the lady's mad; yet, if 'twere so,
She could not sway her house, command her followers,
Take and give back affairs and their dispatch
With such a smooth, discreet and stable bearing
As I perceive she does: there's something in't
That is deceiveable. But here the lady comes.


Dude, Shakespeare's men ALWAYS got the best monologues.
"Those are my principles, and if you don't like them...Well, I have others." -Groucho Marx

Thanks for posting that swim easy. I would turn into mush in her shoes. Had to laugh when she mentioned trying to stNd on her tiptoes to add height and failed. Must remember to walk around with a stool just in case. Jk
Anna - beautiful monologue
