Recollection of another lucky fan ～
That summer, when I was still a junior school student, I met Leslie a dozen times from a distance. I even had a brief conversation with him and got his autograph.
Leslie was filming at the time. So I saw him before and after putting on makeup. The distance between us was relatively short, about 10 meters. The closest was almost the width of a table. He should be around 40 years old at the time. He looked very young and had very good skin quality. Since I often see the crew, I have seen many celebrities. Most of the celebrities look very different before and after makeup. Leslie did not. There was almost no difference between before and after makeup, between himself in real life and on the screen. However, he was really not very tall. There is no need to talk about his appearances because there have been too many people writing on that already.
At that time, my godbrother was a member of the crew and could speak Cantonese. So he was very familiar with Leslie. He said Leslie was easy to communicate with and didn't put on airs. I watched filming many times, but most of the crew were very busy. Later, Leslie was resting and I happened to be nearby. My godbrother came to me and asked if I wanted to talk to Leslie. I said of course and was then taken to Leslie.
I can't now remember what I said, but I remember Leslie looked at me, smiled and said something to me. I didn't respond. On the one hand, I was probably quite excited. On the other hand, I couldn't understand Cantonese. My godbrother said to me that Leslie asked me if I wanted his autograph. I said yes but I didn’t bring the book. Leslie motioned to me to go home and get it. So I ran home at a galloping speed to take the book. When I came back, Leslie signed for me. It's a pity that my family was too poor at the time and didn't have a camera. I guess I would be able to take a group photo with him if I requested. Luckily, I later got a photo of Leslie from the crew.
Later I learned that my godbrother and Leslie talked about a little boy who had watched his movies and listened to a lot of his songs. Then Leslie was free that day and when he saw my godbrother, he asked him to take me to him.
For the fans, I might be really lucky. However, when you have contact with this star, even if it is so short, you may be hurt deeper when he leaves us.
I think I don't need too many words to explain what kind of person he is. This is one of the most memorable experiences in my life. He did exist like a brother. Later, I saw many stars in various opportunities but I have never seen such a star again.
