If yes, ;D please share your lovely experience with him (in full details)

Met him at a Lord of the Rings Con, in Calf, along with Dom, Sean and Billy. It was a lot of fun, I gave him a sculpture of Frodo I did in clay. He took it but I don't know if he still has it. Would love to know if he does. He was very cordial, I was in a wheelchair at the time so I was the last on the line to meet him. He was very patient with me.

that is so cool FRODO! How sweet of him to be so patient and cordial with you being in a wheelchair, he is so lovely to his fans :)
I have never met Elijah or any of the LOTR cast came close to meeting Ian McKellen he was in Cathedral Square in Christchurch NZ while we were still there and we didn't know which was annoying as our houseshare was only a 10 minute walk away and we were in and always went to the square just not this day! :P

i've had the privilege of meeting elijah twice. the first time was during the ELF convention. i had two photos taken with him. (stood on his right, then his left) ;D i gave him a handmade frodo doll made by another fan which i found out a year after that he still had it. we had a nice conversation in the autograph line. actually, he did most of the talking. ;)

then about a week later, i along with a few others were invited to the green street hooligans premiere. we put together a petition for the film then was invited by the producer of the movie. it was at the after party that i got to meet him again. he shook all of our hands then we got him to sign things for us. we all sat around a bench and handed him so many things which he was more than happy to sign. we got photos and talked a little more.

that was a magical night! ;D

That's hilarious. He seems talkative. Nice! I don't think I will get bored if he talked to me all the time.

But lucky you, I wish I could meet him or at least go to one of his premieres, although I doubt it ???

Let's just hope anything is possible in this world.

Nothing is impossible. Just have faith, and perhaps, one day, that you'll meet him. Even if he's an old man, Elijah will still be cool. ;)

I'm not one of the rare people who have met Elijah yet. But I would love to meet him sometime soon. :) It would be such an honor. I would just blush if he started talking to me, messing up on my words and making a fool of myself. :P

Oh, don't think that way! :) But it's okay to feel that way because he's important to us.

And thanks for your encouragement and putting some hope even if it is just a little.

I've met him twice before. It's a really, really long story! He's super sweet and oh so precious in person!

The highlights: he gave me a cigarette and lit it for me, the 2nd time we met he approached me and asked me to take a picture of him w/ his friends. i told him i'd only do it if i could get a picture too! ::)

ah, the memories!

Hello all--I have the EXTREME PLEASURE of meeting Elijah this past Saturday at the Chrysalis Butterfly Ball. I was volunteering, and spotted him smoking a cigarette by himself--just staring into space--right next to the room that volunteers were using. He was just staring off into space--I wanted to speak to him so badly but was supposed to be working, not bugging the famous people. Caught him chatting up Dave Grohl, not surprisingly. Fortunately I got him at the end of the night handing out gift bags. I said "Have a good night Elijah" and at the mention of his name he LIT UP and made a bee line for me. He had so much energy, was so enthusiastic. He asked me what my name was, then I when I shook his hand he was like "Gimme a hug!" He's a little shorter than I thought he was and had on glasses, but is just as beautiful in person as on the screen. Knowing that he loves the city of Austin, TX, I mentioned that I used to live there. "I love Austin!" he exclaimed. We chatted about a chain of movie theatres there (he knows the owner and said they will open one in Los Angeles) and Austin movie and music festivals. I told him I hadn't been able to go back to any festivals since living in L.A. and he was like "Aw!" He said he may buy a house there (Elijah if you're reading this, I hope that wasn't supposed to be a secret!) and even asked what part of town I lived in. My friend asked when Wilfred was coming back, then he was swept away with the rest of the throng on their way out.

I had no idea I'd ever in my life meet Elijah. Of course there were a million things I wanted to chat about that I forgot, and if I hadn't been weighed down with gift bags on my arms or conscious of how sweaty I was (it was hot, I was in all-black, and we were there for 8 hours) I would've given him a longer-lasting, tighter hug! With no purse or phone on me, I couldn't get a picture. I don't know if I came off as giddy as I felt, but I was caught-off guard by Elijah's perkiness. He was genuinely EXCITED to talk to a fan...he just made my whole day. I will never forget his kindness! He's as lovely inside as he is on the outside.

that is absolutely wonderful! so much fun to read and i'm glad you got your chance to chat with elijah. (and get a hug) that's the thing about him. no matter who you are, he'll carry on with you like he's known you for longer than 5 minutes and it makes a genuine and lasting impression. :D

Post by: Kapha Woman on June 16, 2012, 02:10:59 am

I'm grateful to Fate or the Universe of whatever that I was put on gift bag duty. After I saw him standing alone smoking, I saw him in line for the porta-potties with no one behind him. Believe me I thought about getting in that line to meet him even though I didn't have to go! My friend who was also volunteering asked me what I said to get that reaction from it. I told her I only called him by name. I was also on check-in duty when guests arrived, but did not see him at that point. The event was several hours long, so that says something about him that he took the time to chat on his way out. He was probably the biggest "name" there but so gracious. It's really melts my heart.

Great to read your story, Kapha. I'm happy for you really. :D And he asked for a hug?! That's a lot, woman. ;D I wonder how a hug from Elijah would feel like. Definitely fast heartbeat and chill all over my body but in a good way I mean. It's nice to see him in social events like that. He's a social-work guy. What was the event about if you don't mind me asking?

If I saw him for example, I would blink and say "Ok, I see Elijah, am I dreaming or is this reality? Then, I'll touch my body and say "Oh I can feel me and feel the ground so I'm definitely not sleeping" looool :o

I really hope I can meet him someday in the most unexpected places. It is one of things that I want to do before I die. But life doesn't always go my way. :-\

^ He was attending the Chrysalis Butterfly Ball "which helps disadvantaged and homeless individuals with employment opportunities." (stated description on the A&F news)

Kappa, I am so happy for you. Congratulations. I wouldn't be surprised if Elijah bought a house in Austin and moved right next door to you just to chit-chat and have a beer with. ;D

Post by: Kapha Woman on June 16, 2012, 09:29:44 pm

Like Alliecat posted, Chrysalis helps the homeless. They assist with employment, rehab, wardrobes for interviews, etc. The Butterfly Ball is an annual dinner where tables go for $25,000 to $50,000. Shuttles delivered everyone to the location (a private residence), so I didn't get to see what type of car Elijah drives, if anyone's wondering :P. Elijah was one of several celebrities speaking in a video about the good Chrysalis does. He did not appear to have brought a guest, but shared a table with his Wilfred costars Jason Gann and Fiona Gubelmann, along with the show's producer David Zuckerman.

Yes I was over the moon when he asked for a hug ;D. I cannot believe I did the formal handshake at first. Still in volunteer mode I guess. But if you have seen the 7 Minutes in Heaven clip on youtube, you know that Elijah is a breast man (in his own words!), and I'm pretty ample in that area so maybe that's why he asked ::). I'm only 5'3" and didn't expect that with my heeled boots on I'd be taller than him! Sometimes you've wanted something so badly that when you get it, the moment is a blur.

Alliecat I'm no longer in Austin but would be happy to give Elijah some neighborhood tours and personally advise him on where to live in the city :). It's not that big a town--when he asked where I lived I told him the exact street. It's pretty close to the theatre chain we were talking about (the Alamo Drafthouse) so for all I know he's actually driven by my old complex.

JayoZayo I wouldn't be so down about life not going your way. It happened to me when I least expected it ;).

Oh sorry about that Deenan. I got caught up in the moment. :-

Oh. Well he would've blended in anyway because Audi provided the cars that delivered the guests!

Yes, I saw the post about that event just didn't know it was called that.

And yes, about the 7 Minutes in Heaven video, I saw it and I thought it was very classy of him to like boobs. ;) And he also said something about the softness of the belly under them. ;D Ok, I'm sorry for being off topic but it's my thread anyway ;)

Well, I agree but when you like someone so much and you just want to get to meet in any second, you'll get my point. I just wish and wish ::)

Title: Re:Are YOU one of the rare people who have met Elijah?
Post by: Kapha Woman on June 20, 2012, 01:35:28 am

Yes, I remember him saying he liked a nice paunch in the 7 Minutes in Heaven video. He spoke about falling asleep on one. :D If it's a belly he wants, he could rest his head on mine and sleep for decades! ;D

Elijah, a breast man?? That's a shock to me, considering how flat his ex-girlfriend Pamela is. I'm not very chesty either, so I hope that's not true. :P

Title: Re:Are YOU one of the rare people who have met Elijah?
Post by: Kapha Woman on June 20, 2012, 04:22:20 pm

I know--I was thinking the same thing about the ex and her physique. ??? The 7 Minutes in Heaven host asked Elijah if he had any kinks, so it sounds like this is just a preference for ogling body parts, not a requirement for something serious. ;)

Ahhhh Life is weird. May be it wasn't meant to be. Hopefully we will all get to meet him someday but don't expect too much. Just being realistic. But I don't know, it might be the best experience ever.

I am flat chested, but I don't think he is that shallow. Maybe it's just a preference not a requirement. He dated Pam Racine and she was flat chested
