Super Short Sundays – Mahershala Ali Edition
January 22, 2017
I am a huge House of Cards fan. I have been working on getting the cast to sign a couple of pieces. Mahershala Ali plays Remy on the show. He’s currently in the critically acclaimed film Moonlight. He was out this week doing a Q & A for the film. I have heard that he is not very fan friendly, but thought I would try anyway. To my surprise, the moderator for the Q & A was Juliette Lewis. I was bummed because there are items waiting to be signed in my portfolio. Oh well, what can you do? The Q & A was interesting. After the session, they asked us to stay seated until Mahershala and Juliette exited. I waited and then quickly made my way to the lobby. I was able to stop Mahershala and asked him to sign my poster. He said I will sign one autograph. I was the only one asking and only had one item with me. I was shocked by his behavior. Most people cannot tell me who he is or the shows he has stars. I am glad to have gotten him to sign, but a little disappointed in his reaction. Until next time…
