A German TV company, RTL, contacted me to ask to make a short film about my work and getting a painting signed.

The latest film at that time was 'Cowboys and Aliens', so I painted portraits of the 2 stars, Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford, and took them to the premiere hoping to get them signed.

I was offered a prime position in the crowd by RTL and both actors kindly autographed my portraits.

The video made by RTL was broadcast on national TV in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The video is below, although being dubbed into German

I don't know the narrative.

I met Daniel Craig at the Royal World Premiere of the James Bond film 'Quantum of Solace'.

A 100 mile journey to London at 6.30am on a cold and snowy morning.

I eventually arrived at Leicester Square at 8.30am and took my place with the other fans already gathered there.

We waited all day in the freezing cold and Daniel was due to arrive at 6pm that evening. By this time Leicester Square was packed with thousands of fans.

Daniel arrived, as he came past I was being crushed against a metal barrier

but held my painting over the top of it to protect it.

Daniel saw the painting and said "That's fantastic! do you want me to sign it?",

I said "yes please!"

and he signed it despite having his arm in a sling from a recent injury.

It was quite an experience and a lot of effort to get the signature but it was worth it to see Daniel's reaction and get his signature.
