I had the notion I was vaguely familiar with the Boom Boom's, but I don't recall ever having seen her before.

Oh, well. You live and learn, and all that.

About 10 years ago or more I saw Robbie Coltraine driving in the next lane over the Kingston Bridge. I beeped the horn, he looked round then ignored me. I've never watched another episode of anything he's been in since, *****!

What did you expect the bloke to do, for goodness sake, invite you to the set of the latest Harry Potter film?

I encountered the bloke a couple of times in pubs years ago - he came across as a pretty decent bloke.

I at least expected him to nod over if not shout out 'hows it gawn' . Is that too much to ask of a guy who makes his living from an unsuspecting public not knowing how much of a ***** he is? Or maybe he's just a shite driver who can't multi-task? ;)

I met Robbie Coltrane about 17 years ago outside Buchanan Bus Station. I was with two of my college mates.
"Awright Robbie?" one of us shouted, half expecting him to tell us where to go.
He stopped and spoke for a few minutes about life, made his excuses and went on his way.

Top bloke!
