Jude Law sparked a security alert at a cinema in Bath, England on Wednesday (13Sep17) when staff spotted a suspicious character lurking around the venue.
Bath Odeon usher Connor Walter was told to keep an eye on the man, and quickly realized he was looking at the Dom Hemingway star when he took Jude’s movie ticket.
Walter waited for Detroit, the film Law had paid to see, to end and then asked the actor if he’d pose for a photo with him. He also slipped him a handwritten fan note before Jude dashed off.
The movie star later emailed the cinema staffer to apologize for running away.
Walter says, “My manager told me to keep an eye on a man acting suspiciously with his hood up in the main foyer.
“The man spent a good 10 minutes just standing around on the phone, then he came and bought a ticket from one of my colleagues and my colleague who served him the ticket did not recognize him, nobody did.
“Then he came to the bottom of the stairs and I tore his ticket, I looked at his eyes and recognized him… If I had not been working that night, nobody else would have recognized him as he was very unrecognizable with his black hoodie and beard.”
Law is reportedly working on the Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them sequel in nearby Wiltshire – the actor has been cast as the young Professor Dumbledore, the role Richard Harris and Michael Gambon both played in the Harry Potter films.
