TONY CURRAN AKA VINCENT VAN GOGH IN DOCTOR WHO IS A LEGEND

A LOT OF ACTORS RUSH AWAY OF YOU TRY TO SPEAK TO THEM BUT YESTERDAY, MY SON, NEPHEW AND I MET TONY CURRAN ON THE STREETS OF BELFAST. HE IS A HUGE STAR HAVING APPEARED IN EVERYTHING FROM 24 TO PRIMEVAL AND IS CURRENTLY WORKING ON ONE OF THE CSI. HE HAD JUST FLOWN IN FROM LOS ANGELES THE NIGHT BEFORE AND DOING THE VORTEX 3 CONVENTION.

WE SAW HIM CROSSING THE STREET AND MY TWO REMEMBERED HIM AS THE KNIGHT WHO CHASED A DRAGON THROUGH TIME IN PRIMEVAL AS WELL AS DOCTOR WHO. I DARED TO ASK IF HE WOULD HAVE HIS PICTURE TAKEN WITH THE KIDS AND IN THAT BRILLIANT SCOTTISH ACCENT AGREED. HE POSED HAPPILY AND CHATTED WITH THEM AND WITH ME. HE ASKED WERE WE LEAVING AND HOPED WE WERE GOING BACK IN. i ASSURED HIM WE WERE INDEED BUT JUST GOING TO THE SHOP TO GET SOMETHING TO EAT. IN THOSE 5 MINUTES, HE WAS GRACIOUS, KIND AND GENUINELY INTERESTED IN THE KIDS’ DAY.

ON STAGE HE EXCELLED AS THIS WAS HIS FIRST DOCTOR WHO CONVENTION. HE REGALED THE CROWD OF TALES OF HIS VARIOUS JOBS, KIEFER SUTHERLAND, DANIEL CRAIG, DOCTOR WHO, MATT SMITH AND DOES A MEAN SEAN CONNERY. IF YOU EVER HAVE THE FORTUNE TO MEET HIM ASK HIM TO TELL YOU THE STORY OF HIS MOTHER DANCING WITH SEAN CONNERY. HE INVITED KIDS ON STAGE AND WAS GENUINELY INTERESTED IN EVERYONE AND MAKING THE DAY SPECIAL.

TONY CURRAN IS A TRUE GENTLEMAN AND A FANTASTIC GUEST AT ANY CONVENTION. AND TODAY HE MADE TWO GENERATIONS VERY HAPPY INDEED. BLESS YOU SIR AND LET THE UNIVERSE REWARD YOUR KINDNESS.A
