I'll raise you my cast from Grange Hill story. One of the 80's cast member became a (shit) DJ for the clubs where I lived in the early 90's. I was bunking off collage one afternoon in the local arcade and then about 6 former member of Grange Hill from the 80's just turned up and started playing the games there. It was just me and them, I was geeking out internally "I'm in the arcade with the kids from Grange Hill!" It was totally reality bending. I didn't bother them though, I just let them be.I was a huge Grange Hill fan as a kid, and every summer we travelled from Lancashire to Dorset to spend a few weeks with family. My dad would drive the awful Vauxhall Chevette with its red vinyl interior that i had to peel my face from should I fall asleep, and my mum and I would catch the train. I could run up and down it and mum could get pissed and chat to randoms. One year i remember being unable to find her where we'd parted and when I did, she was sat next to mr. Bronson, the (frankly terrifying) headmaster from the series.
I was floored and scared lol and it took a few minutes for me to disassociate the man from the role, but he was lovely. He and mum were getting along just fine ;) and he gave me a sneak peek at the script for the next series and a pic of him looking less than mean which he signed bless him. If the internet was around I could've got some love from the spoiler thread :p
They obviously came to visit the guy that was DJing in that town. He really was a shit DJ and only got gigs becuse he used to be in Grange Hill tho.
