Sweetie, sweetie, sweetie! It’s Joanna Lumley’s birthday today! The actress most famously starred as Patsy on the UK comedy “Absolutely Fabulous.” Last year, she was on Broadway in an excellent play called “La Bete.” I had the opportunity to meet Joanna 3 times and I have to say, after meeting thousands of celebrities from all walks of fame, Joanna Lumley is one of the nicest people I’ve ever encountered. She was so nice. She graciously signed all of my Ab Fab DVDs and even wrote “Cheers Sweetie,” a classic Ab Fab line, on one of my photos! Well over 6 months later, I have not forgotten about the encounter and when I think of her and watch episodes of Ab Fab, which is a lot, I can’t help but smile and be grateful for the laughs she’s given me (and all of us) and be very impressed with how sweet of a person she is. Thanks again Joanna and I hope you have an absolutely fabulous day!
It’s impossible to love Joanna Lumley any more than I already do. She plays Patsy Stone, one of my favorite characters of all time from Absolutely Fabulous, one of my favorite TV shows of all time. I’ve met thousands of actors and actresses in my life and I have to say, Joanna Lumley is amongst the nicest I’ve ever met! I still haven’t gotten over the fact that I was able to take my picture with her and when I asked her to autograph it and she wrote “Cheers sweetie,” on the photo! That makes my head explode with delight!
There’ve been rumours on the internet that the show Absolutely Fabulous will return. Nothing concrete has been confirmed – until now! Joanna Lumley was signing autographs after her also fabulous play, “LaBete” in New York. What you’ll see towards the end of this one minute clip, while signing an autograph for someone named Patsy, Joanna Lumley confirms the AbFab reunion. BEST. NEWS. EVER!
September 26, 2010 is a day I’ll never forget! I met over 7 celebrities on that day including one of my all time favorites – Joanna Lumley! If you haven’t figured it out from the picture, one�of Joanna Lumley’s most famous roles was Patsy Stone from the hit British comedy “Absolutely Fabulous.” I went to see Joanna’s latest play “LaBete” on Broadway (which is so great, by the way – and more on “LaBete” coming soon) and I met her both before and after the show. She is one of the nicest celebrities I’ve ever met! She was so happy to autograph all of my AbFab DVDs and she took a photo with me. She was equally as nice to my friend who’d brought some very rare AbFab memorabilia for her to sign. Wow! If you are reading this Joanna, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for playing a role that I love so much and reference in daily life. I also thank you for being so nice and for giving me a smile that has lasted all day and won’t wear off any time soon. As a side note, you can tell that Joanna Lumley has not had any type of surgery and she looks even more beautiful as a result. She is such an inspiration all the way around! Right, cheers, thanks a lot Joanna! Cheers sweetie!
