Miriam Margolyes (HP) success?

Unread post by quails23 »

Sent: 6.18.12
- LOR, SAE, blank index card

Received: 6.29.12
- 4x6 Harry Potter card signed

Address used:
Miriam Margolyes
c/o United Agents Ltd.
12-26 Lexington Street
London, W1F 0LE
UK

First of all, I am quite puzzled at the lack of international postage. If you look closely, there are remnants of two black stamps and nothing else. Because of that, I was expecting a local reply and that maybe the people at the PO were nice enough to let it slide. But I live far from England. And it arrived way sooner than expected, which is kind of weird! I've examined the card and it seems authentic to me, or at least a pre-print, because of the shininess of the ink & curves of a marker, but I am not that familiar with her signature.

Well. I'm happy with it because the card is so awesome. :)

When I got a reply from her, she didn't use my SAE but instead used her own envelope... But there was no postage or any kind of marking it anything on the envelope. Kind of shady lol

Haha yes, it's strange. If there was a return address, I'd be less confused, because no stamps has happened before to me. Mostly, I've been thinking of how it got there and back so fast. The only thing I can come up with is the size. If I sent everything in a 6x9, maybe it was faster than an 8x10 would've been. Thought I wrote it down, but can't find it in my notes. Oops.

One of the two stamps could be the postage - I am not totally sure , but when a letter gets franked , I think it is just a black stamp . And a six or seven day shipping to the States is possible ( although it would depend on some luck ) , so the postage is probably OK .

As you didn't send the item , they didn't need Miriam to sign it because they either sent something presigned or , less probably ( but not sure ) , secretarial .

I am hoping to meet her today , so will try to compare autos .

Got her before the show - she arrived about 5.55pm for a 8pm show . There were 7 people waiting , she signed anything and posed for photos - quite a jolly woman , who , although she was almost sure we weren't coming to the show , seemed happy to sign anyway . For me , she signed a Harry Potter photo and DVD cover , a Ladies In Lavender DVD cover (already signed by Judi Dench ) and a Sarah Jane Adventures / Doctor Who item . :D She even offered to hold one of the guys Julies ( or sounds like that ;-) ) while he posed for the photo :shock:
