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.
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!
