KHAZARA


Ok this was WAY too exciting! I'm a BIG Firefly/Serenity fan. Been a fan (aka flan) since Firefly first aired. Joined the postcard-senders to urge Fox not to cancel the series. Saw the entire gang at the 2004 & 2005 San Diego Comic-Cons. Snuck onto the Serenity set from the Universal Studios theme park in 2004. Saw the movie Serenity and met Joss in July 2005. Dressed up as Jayne at numerous events, including Browncoat Scavenger Hunt and the June 23rd 2006 screenings. I'm just saying I'M A FAN.

I've got a friend visiting me, so we went up to L.A. today to sightsee. We're about all done with the Hollywood area, after visiting Graumann's Chinese Theatre, the Walk of Fame, Kodak Theatre, and so forth. We're walking into the Kodak Theatre complex, as the car is parked in the underground parking area, and I see the one, the only, Nathan Fillion walking away from the theatre, right across my field of vision, about 12 feet away.

"Nathan!" I yell out.

He stops, looks around to see who called him, and at this point I'm walking towards him and we're just a few feet apart now.
"Mind if I get a picture with you!?"
"Well, uh, sure but I'm in a rush right now..."
"Oh ok, no problem, it's ok."
"Naw c'mon, let's do it "
"Cool! Thanks."
(friend readies camera)
"So whatcha doin here anyway, Nathan?"
"Oh was just catching a movie."
"Ahh, ok, cool."
(click)
We shake hands, I thank him, and he's off.

Proof!!

Sorry for the messy code, but it seems to be the only way I can get the image to appear. http://www.putfile.com'> border='0' src='' alt='Hosted by Putfile.com'>

He was wearing a cloth-like kilt by the way, looks like he's still trying to make it "a thing"! After walking away from the encounter, it then really hit me what had happened, and I had to sit down to take it all in. I just met Nathan Fillion!!! AND even had my camera with me! YEAH!!!!

Can you believe it!? Out of ANY actor who may have been in the area, it's the one, the only, cap'n Mal!? AMAZING!!?? Wow. Woohoo!!!!!!!!

You are one helluva lucky guy. Very, very shiny!

Hey, I wonder if Nathan's fondness for kilts makes him a 'Braveheart' ( http://www.kiltmen.com/ ). I guess what he is wearing might be a 'utilikilt' ( https://secure.utilikilts.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWCATS&Category=3

Happened to me in New York, what makes it even better is that I'm from London, had travelled several thousand miles, had not slept for 38 hours and should just happen to walk into Nathan on our first outing!! (ok, it was at Spamalot, but I didn't even know Alan was in Spamalot and had a whole happy dance about that when I realised)

Seriously happy for you! I refrained from getting a photo as I didn't want to annoy him on his off time, but I now realise he probably wouldn't have minded as he's the nicest guy in the 'verse.

And men in kilts

SO jealous right now. And that's a pretty amazing coincidence, considering the amount of people in the world.Once again jealous...but it's nice to see him in a kilt, I do hope he realizes it won't catch on, although I hope it does amongst the browncoat guys

Look in the archives for pics from the Serenity premiere and you'll find ones of Nathan wearing (gulp) a leather kilt. I think it's leather. Maybe it's just a regular one, and I'm just projecting my own sordid fantasies into this memory.

Mmm...Kilty goodness...

Yes Mavourneen, it is a leather kilt and I believe it was actually at the In Good Company premier. That kilt got him the job on Slither.
Here's a link to a clip. http://www.iesb.net/movies2/movie120704.php

I loves me some Nathan in a kilt. FMF isn't the only one who could get excited by all that easy access.

The kilt Nathan is wearing in that shot is a Utilikilt.

They are becoming hugely popular here on the West Coast, having started up in Seattle.

pic from http://www.slithermovie.co.uk/nathanfillion

The story is that he wore this kilt to a premiere
and a magazine printed the picture and someone
showed the picture to James Gunn (Director
of Nathan's new movie SLiTHER) and suggested
Nathan for the part of Sheriff Bill Pardy. And
James remembered Nathan from Firefly.

I'm glad you all liked the story & the pic! I just HAD to share. I mean, out of ALL the people to run into!? And to actually see a celeb in downtown Hollywood, tourist central, is pretty rare I think unless it's a big official event. So cool!

For those having trouble viewing the pic, the direct address for the pic is:

Didn't get a chance to ask about the movie, it was SO fast, he was in a rush. It's possible he had just parked his car and was going TO a movie at Graumann's Chinese Theatre. Woulda been interesting if I had my Blue Sun shirt on instead!

Glad everyone liked my story.

OK. I take it back. *this* is the sexiest kilt on the face of the planet right now. The green one from the top picture was good for a hot day, but the hotness is Nathan in leatha'

That's super awesome!!! And funny because I was up in Hollywood earlier in the week and didn't see anyone. Had a ever so brief, possible celebrity encounter at LAX, but it didn't turn out as fortunate for me as yours did for you.

Gotta say it again . . . .fabulous. And a really good picture, too!
