If you’ve been looking at pictures of the play Emperor and Galilean you may have seen a few cropping up of Andrew Scott and a certain gorgeous young man.
The young man is, of course, James McArdle. My drama class and myself went to see The Heart of Robin Hood (astounding, by the way, the set was incredible) and James McArdle was in it. We kind of fangirled (see: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/reviews/article-2068818/The-Heart-Robin-Hood-review-A-thief-thats-worth-catching-.html - we were the “pre-teens”, despite we’re all 16/17, the article mentions; we were there on the press night, quite clearly screaming away) over him, and so decided to wait outside the stage door.
And we met him and he was lovely! So, so nice, we had a chat as we made him sign like 10 autographs, then talked to him a bit. He said in the scene where he was hanging upside down by a rope (
with no shirt onwhat same?) he was scared his boots were going to fall off and he was worried he was wearing purple socks.
And, uh, that was it! I just thought there might be some fangirls out there who would appreciate this :) So, uhh, come fangirl with me!
(Also I would kill all of you to travel back in time to watch the play he and Andrew Scott were in).
This is your last chance to watch the fantastic Emperor and Galilean at the National Theatre, so make sure you see it if you haven’t already or if you have then make sure you see it again!
E&G finishes August 10th with only 4 more performances left on 8th August at 7pm, 9th August at 12.45pm, 9th August at 7pm and the final performance on August 10th at 7pm.
I just went to see the play and waited for him :)
