Tom Hanks will promote his debut book of short stories in Lomdon this November.
Michael C Hall will take time off from rehearsals of the London production of Lazarus to attend a Q&A following a screening of The Man Who Fell to Earth.
Pedro Almodovar will attend a special screening of his 1988 film Women On The Verge of a Nervous Breakdown at the BFI on January 11.
Coincidentally, it’s the night before the new musical based on the film officially opens at the Playhouse Theatre.
The show stars Tamsin Greig.
I don’t suppose it would be a huge leap to expect the Spanish director to attend the first night.
National treasure Julie Walters will be the debut subject of the TV strand of BAFTA’s A Life In Pictures.
She’ll be discussing her career at BAFTA’s HQ in Piccadilly on December 3.
Back in 2000 when she won Best Supporting Actress for her role in Billy Elliot I got to interview her backstage at the awards.
Earlier that weekend she’d also won an Olivier Award so I asked her what she was going to do on the Monday morning. “I’ve got a pile of washing to do” she told me. Still one of my favourite stories.
