Torchwood Miracle Day 2 convention - 2 more John Barrowman

Phew! On Monday John Barrowman had to cancel a TV show where he wanted to promote his upcoming tour because he had lost his voice. We all feared he had gotten ill at the convention from hugging all those people. I especially was worried as it had been me who said that I had wanted to touch his biceps, and he took off the hoodie he wore to show off his muscles, and then stayed like that for the rest of the pictures. It was cold and drafty in the room, and I never would have forgiven myself if it had been my fault that the concert on Saturday needs to be cancelled!

But today he tweeted a video, he is rehearsing and looking good, and it was actually a bad reaction of his shellfish allergy (again). Even traces of it in his food make him go ill. He says he is better now but we were quite worried the past few days.

So, now I can show you what I got to do with him! This biceps was really firm, I pressed it hard.


I also got shooting lessons:

Re: Dear John:
I think it was more that they cooked his meal in fish oil and he didn't know about it. Poor guy :( He said he gets really sick when that hits him.

The banana one is fantastic!

Thank you ;)
But I had no idea how to look for that one, so my expression is a bit mixed. I'm no actor after all. All I knew, I probably shouldn't smile.

Some more to come, the fun is not over yet!

You did fine. It's hard to do expressions for sure, but you did well.

LOL banana-gun-porn :)
Antjedieastra on May 15th, 2015 01:28 pm (UTC)
Yep LOL It had to be done. He's such a great guy, fooling around like this. Not everyone does it.

Sorry, forgot to include the links to the other pictures in this post, but surely you saw what I posted in the past days? Some more to come yet as well. The fun is not over yet.

These are some awesome photo op shots! Congratulations on such great pix!
Antjedieastra on May 15th, 2015 01:22 pm (UTC)
Thank you! He is such a great guy, doing everything. I saw many pictures of other people and they all looked awesome.

Oops, I forgot to include the other links in here, hope you saw the ones I posted in the past days as well. Some more to come yet, a sandwich with Gareth and John, and one where my friend and I picked him up ;)

Oh my goodness! I'm looking forward to seeing those! :-)

Ooooh that second pic with the banana....
Stacey: Jack LOLgeekslave on May 15th, 2015 04:36 am (UTC)
Both are great pics, but the banana gun is especially awesome.

Antjedieastra on May 15th, 2015 12:29 pm (UTC)
Thank you, glad you liked it!
I wasn't sure how to exactly look there. I am no actor. All I knew I should probably not smile LOL
John looks good as always.

You did a good job. :)

uh oh, look out, he's got a banana!

i think you look great! you look like you gonna mess someone up with that banana! :)
Antjedieastra on May 21st, 2015 05:51 am (UTC)
*g* Did you also see all the other ones, linked in this entry, and the one I posted after, with my friend and I lifting him? We had much fun ;)

Thanks! I also saw this pose with some real looking weapons, but I think it looks funnnier with a banana. And he really told me how to stand (as I first had one foot in front of the other but he told me to stand normal)

Aww those are awesome! I love that you got to recreate the famous gun scene ♥ And to feel his muscles!!

Glad you had a good time at Miracle Day, I couldn't afford it in the end. Did they say if they're doing a Miracle day 3?
Antjedieastra on May 23rd, 2015 12:19 am (UTC)
I had planned that muscle photo for so long and then he came in long sleeves on the first day! I was so gutted LOL But so happy when he took off the jacket on the second day. And then gutted again when I thought he got ill because of me.

After having so many hug pictures already, I wanted something different. Hope you also saw all the other ones, especially the one where I lifted him.

Yes, and the date already has been published. But for some odd reason it is not at the website yet, although Sean said you already can purchase tickets.

15-17 April 2016 at the Renaissance Hotel Heathrow.

I guess I'll have to go back as well as I know the person who won the script contest and they will read it the next time. I wanna see that. But I think they missed a chance this year with so many there, I don't think John will be back again so soon. So you really also missed out, who knows when he will be back, he does US cons only these days. And we gotta meet one day!

The banana shooting pic is great! XD
Antjedieastra on May 27th, 2016 08:53 pm (UTC)
I have to thank my Kazakhstan friend for the suggestion and also lending out her breakfast ;)

Sad to say it got eaten afterwards. Even though it had been touched by John LOL

What was great with that convention - if you look through the other picture links - we were not forced to take all 5 at once and be done. We took one, then went back into line. That way, we got to spend much longer in the room, watching John with his fans, doing all kind of funny and great things. I never wanted to leave.
