There is no doubt our favorite Brit stole everyone’s spotlight the moment he arrived outside of Radio City Music Hall. He looked his most handsome self and surely made every single person’s encounter with him unforgettable.
After years of admiring the man from afar, I finally had the chance to see him in person. Although everything happened rather quickly because of the big crowd, I felt privileged to watch Jason arrive in a sleek black Mercedes and go straight to the fans. I had been told many times before how kind he always is and how much time he spends with his fans, and now I can say I have seen his humbleness with my own two eyes. While his cast mates arrived in ridiculously huge black Escalades and most of them couldn’t be bothered to attend to the waiting fans outside, Jason was the ONLY one who made it about them and not himself. He went down the long line, signed autographs and took photos never mind the waiting press and photographers inside the venue. In my opinion, you can tell a true star by the way he/she interacts with his/her fans and Jason genuinely is a class act. He made everyone feel equally important and gave back so much love that I have nothing but more admiration for him. Enjoy the few photos I managed to snap of him.
Take a look at this awesome and action-packed scene which will be even more thrilling to watch on the big screen. Their wonderful chemistry is what makes everything so much more enjoyable.
The event took place on March 23, 2017 and was live streamed across the country. It kicked off with a long press conference which offered a lot of sweet and funny moments followed by a red carpet premiere where fans had the chance to get up close with our favorite Brit. Today we finally bring you the whole coverage so sit back and enjoy all the Jason goodness. And yes, there is a lot of it.
