Emma and her husband Neil had the pleasure of meeting Jason Statham at the “Redemption” aka “Hummingbird” UK Premiere in London on June 17, 2013, and even scored two premiere tickets to watch the film with all the other people. How cool is that? She was kind enough to let us feature her wonderful story and gorgeous photos on JStatham.com, so enjoy reading about her amazing experience with our favorite Brit.
Emma: This is the third premiere of a Jason film we have been to, we arrived at 12:45 pm and waited outside Odeon cinema Leicester Square. Jason and Rosie arrived about 6pm and he signed autographs and posed for photos with the fans. We had taken a piece of our 4 foot wall art poster (made up of 8 A3 size posters) we have on our landing at home. When Jason got to us I asked him to sign what looked like a blank piece of Paper!
Jason: ” Well that’s an interesting picture”
Me: ” Its actually a piece of a 4 foot poster of you which is on our landing so when you look up our staircase you are looking down pointing a gun!”
Jason: ” Brilliant! You’re an angel!” ( Signs picture)
Then I am fumbling about asking for a photo with him, he grabs my camera and says, “Come here!” Takes photo of us both!
Then he moves on down the row and I haven’t got a photo of my husband with him! So I tap him on the arm and he comes back for a photo with Neil. He asks to have a look at the pic, turns to Neil and says, “You could be my stunt double!”
Great bloke spent a lot of time with the fans and we watched him being interviewed by the press opposite where we were standing.
Neil had asked one of the security guards if there were any tickets going spare for the premiere when we got there earlier in the day and he came over and gave us 2 tickets to get in!
Thank you, Emma, for sharing this fantastic moment with us fans!
