Well, THAT was a great evening....
« on: 2016-05-07, 10:19:13 »
Greetings my noble fellow knights....

I havent been much here for some time. I have had some really rough times, getting fired from my job, and other serious issues, all at the same time. But now, finally, things looks better....

Our medieval market season is starting next week, and me and two of my fellow knights from our medieval group, warmed up yesterday evening.
The HBO exhibition "Hall of faces" opened in Copenhagen last night, and we were invited by HBO to greed the guests on the red carpet....

Some celebreties came, but no one bigger than Jamie Lannister himself - well, actor nikolaj Coster Waldau that is.... It was great to talk to him, and he asked about our armour and swords.... When we told him we actually fight with our swords and axes, he said we must be crazy  ;D ;D

Well, all in all a very nice evening, and a perfect warm up for the Copenhagen Medieval Market next week....

Good to hear your back!

Also Nikolaj Coster Waldau does such a good job playing Americans, that we had him play one of our hallowed hero's and nobody noticed that Dane steal... the scene. ;)

Welcome back, Sondegaard and looks like you had a most excellent time!  Even met the Kingslayer and lived to tell about it.

Welcome back indeed! What a great evening you and your group was able to be a part of the HBO exhibition.

My hopes and prayers are with you while you endure the hardships you mentioned and may this event be a sign of better times to come.

Bit of a minor role for him though.
