The Man in Black

I'm a little late in posting this, but here it is! I MET CARY ELWES!!
The King's English hosted an event where Cary came and talked to us about his book and his experiences making The Princess Bride.

I went with my amazing friends Jenni, Tori, and Suey.

 We went early and got really good seats.
He told some hilarious stories about Andre, Billy Crystal, and a couple others. I wish it had gone on longer.

Here he is signing a book:

He shook my hand!
I had things in my head that I wanted to say, but when I got up there, I choked! I was starstruck and my introvert side came out. I was quiet and shy. I said hello, my name (barely), and thank  you. It was all I could get out! I felt so stupid afterwards.
Oh well, at least I have his book signed and personalized.

A girl in front of us was crying, so Cary gave her a hug, and she freaked out even more. It was pretty funny. Jenni and I contemplated crying if we got hugs.

It was such an honor to meet him! I remember watching The Princess Bride with my brothers when I was little. We would quote the movie all the time. I grew up with this movie! It was released the same year I was born. It was so amazing to meet the Dread Pirate Roberts himself. He was so charming!


  1. I'm glad I got a good picture of you two. I was worried it didn't turn out like Suey's. But, at least we had a little more time. :D

  2. YES!! Love! and that is a great picture!
