Good Luck Sylvester McCoy! (You’re Gonna Need It!)

If I ask for your autograph, run.

I have only ever asked for three personalized autographs:

1994- Michael O’Hare. Shortly after autographing my picture, he was fired from his role as Commander Sinclair on Babylon 5. Though it was said to be an amicable departure, rumors persisted that, behind the scenes, he was a nut.

2009- Dominic Carter. Within weeks of autographing my copy of his book, the NY1 anchor was tried and convicted of domestic assault charges.

May 16, 2010- Sylvester McCoy.

Good Luck Sylvester!

(I also have George Takei’s autograph, but the jury is still out on him.)

    Don’t panic – I’m fairly sure the worst that can happen is that he comes back as a younger, incredibly different looking, version of himself.

    Just check what came out about O’Hare in 2013. He had bouts of severe psychosis during the first season, but had he left immediately, the show would have been cancelled. He kept on until the season’s end to save others’ jobs with episodes of paranoia and hallucinations, then went on medical leave. None of the other cast members knew that he was ill and not on drugs when acting crazy. He never fully recovered. Very sad story.

      I actually met him during the airing of season 1. It had already been filmed but no one knew he was leaving. It was a small viewing party at a bookstore in NYC. He was very nice, singed autographs and posed for pictures. Kind of quiet and reserved.
