The day was Wednesday, the date was the 7th of June. I had been trying , with little success, to get to the London Premiere of 'Man of Steel'. I even tried to get the Irish Premiere too, but my luck was failing. I had swore to everyone that I would be there and that I would meet Henry Cavill. I had put in for multiple competitions, tried getting in contact with anyone who could help out but it just wasn't working out. Back to last week, I was told about a competition on 98fm with Ray Foley for a meet and greet with Henry Cavill as well as getting to walk the red carpet and seeing the London Premiere. I entered on that very day and boom, I was in the draw.
Whoever won out in the draw would then go to London, so I waited until Friday morning, then Friday came and I listened in tentatively. Hours passed and there was a call, I recognized the number and answered before the second ring. I was put on hold and my heart was beating through my chest. I was put on with Ray and he explained that I hadn't won, I was disappointed but in the back of my mind I knew. Then Ray laughed and explained that I did win and he was just messing, my heart skipped a beat.
With that competition won the amount of times I would see 'Man of Steel' came to a nice round number, three, so I dubbed this week, the 'Week of Steel'.
I stayed at a four star hotel, walked the red carpet and I met Henry Cavill.
He is a real genuine man, and when I handed him the gift that I designed for him to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of 'Superman' and to congratulate him on his success he was genuinely taken aback. It made my day and my life up until this point.
I will give my review on 'Man of Steel' soon,which will include photos and videos of the whole day and my thoughts and experiences of my 'Week of Steel'. Until then though I'll give you all this little picture from the day.
