Su,

Just read your words on what happened. And i'm with Domino in the feeling bad for Damien part, I can imagine having someone throw their arms around you, or whatever, uninvited and unexpected, must be off putting and upsetting but for Damien to be that upset, it had to be really frightening. It had to be horrible for him and i do expect it shook him out of whatever mindset he was in for the performance. Just horrible.

BUT... we are all fans of Damien's. I'd like to think that when he tweets about something and he reads them back then he'll recognise one or two or more of the names responding to him. He recognises you ladies when you go to see his plays, see him at the stage door and when you were set-stalking. He's grateful for the support, he said to me that he was. He was grateful when you all met him the last time and gave him gifts and stuff, when you all said that you were fans of his as well as of Being Human. He was touched. You all know the boundaries and you know when to keep to them and not to cross them. It's normal and natural. An announcement of a play, a reading or a television project including him and it's natural to want to talk about it, to want to go and see whatever it is he's appearing in and tweet and facebook about it. You do it because you're a fan of his. What and how someone else reacts to him, however innapropriately, is not your fault, or your responsibility. We don't know how this person found out about it, i assume she uses social media like the rest of us. Quite possibly she saw Damien, perhaps for the first time in the flesh and got overexcited and completely over-reacted, we don't know. But it isn't OUR fault.

I'd like to think that Damien knows that we're not all like that. I can imagine that what happened to him prior to the performance just shook him and he just wasn't in the mood to be pleasant or sociable. The test will be if and when he does any more theatre. If he doesn't appear at the stage door then we'll know, if he does, then it was just a little bump in the road. All we can continue to do is support him as an actor as we have done and will continue to do so.

Just reading though as much as I can, its a shame this happened, I always think there are some that spoil the experience of meeting someone. They may think they are the 'biggest fans' but a fan would respect personal space, situation, and treat those who they admire well and want them to feel at ease, as it must be scary meeting folk they don't know, who know about there work at least.

Oh my, I'd forgotten about this.  I had a rant on tumblr about red-coat lady!  Shame on her!  Seems she dropped off the grid, thankfully.  I see tweets from people that see Damien on the train or in other places and gratified to hear that most fans are respectful.  He even said something about not being recognized much, no one coming up to bother him.  I would hate for him to feel alienated from most of his fans by a few bad apples.  

 

On another note, Word Theatre still owes us a video!  Or at the very least the audible download...
