I hope I have put this in the right forum!

I was lucky enough to meet up with my lovely friend Alex last week, who has just moved to a new job

in the publicity department of a publisher. Naturally when she mentioned that this book is on her list the first

two questions I asked her were 'Are there pictures of Orlando in it?' and 'Can you send me a copy?'

The lovely, lovely Alex said 'yes' and 'yes' - and the book arrived in the post today.

The book is completely gorgeous! It has fantastic exclusive behind-the-scenes photos in it. I've scanned the Orlando ones and sent them to the webmaster address - so hopefully one of the PEFIC will load them up for us (I chickened out of trying myself).

It's really, seriously worth putting on your christmas list - only £8.99 from Amazon!

Gotta go - my dinner's ready.

Kathryn.

Thanks, kathryn, and please let your friend know how much we all appreciate the pictures! I love behind the scenes photos, especially the ones where he looks deep in concentration getting ready for a scene, and the ones where he's having fun with the cast.

Wow! there are more pictures than I expected to see. This is great! I will have to add it to my collection. I did check it out a Amazon like you suggested kathryn, thanks for posting it! Now, is it just the angle, or does Orlando look tiny in that last shot? Perfect, none the less. :wub:

Wonderful pictures, Kathryn - thank you for sharing!

Anar, Orlando looks teeny in that last photo (amusingly so :lol: ) because he's standing next to co-writer and co-director of Extras Stephen Merchant, who is 6'7" tall! Check out normal-height Ricky in the foreground. That lady on the left is also rather tall!

Thanks Kathryn and Jupiter, for these scans. Me too I love behind-the-scenes stuff. and all the more so if it features Orlando :) ! And you say it's for sale at Amazon ? Okay, that's me off then. my husband is still desperately trying to come up with a few things for my Xmas pressies, so I guess I'll have to whisper in his ear :shiny: .

Don't you just love Orlando's smile in the last pic ? :wub: Can't help it though, that wig gives me the giggles any time I see it :tomato: .

Wow, I still remember rolling on the floor watching this clip. Orlando is a natural at comedy. Wonderful pictures, Kathryn and Judi. Thank you so much. And yes, what a smile! :wub:

Thank you so much Kathryn for bringing these over and thank your friend for us! :snoopy: Orlando looks so adorable in these pictures. :wub: I just played back my clip of it the other day and he had me laughing just as hard as I did the first time I watched him, the beginning with the flowers was so hilarious, I am laughing just thinking about it. :lol: I can't wait to see it again on HBO! :cheer: I also hope he does more comedy like that, he is such a natural. :throb:

Thanks, Kathryn and Jupiter. These are terrific. My fav is the one of Orlando holding the "Sexiest Film Stars" magazine.

I'm glad you liked the pictures! Thanks Judi for posting them - I'd just spent an hour scanning them and completely chickened out of trying to upload and post them too.

I apologise for the poor quality of the scans - Orlando's episode is right in the middle of the book

(being episode 1 of season 2!) and it was very hard to get it flat enough for a good scan.

There's also a very small pic of the kiss between Maggie and Orlando that I gave up on as my scanning

programme was complaining a lot at that point, and we have a very similar shot in the gallerie.

I should also mention that the inside covers of the book are covered in the (printed) signatures of the guest

stars from the series, which I thought was a lovely touch! Oh, and the double-page spread of the picture of Orlando and Maggie is far more impressive in reality. :giveup:

And don't forget - you can shop at Amazon through the ka-bloom link.

Kathryn.

I had trouble too aliza, but I finally found it for pre-order. I think I had a hard time becuase of the extra semicolons. :beatsme: Extras: The Scripts: Series One and Two. Someone please tell me if I have the wrong book!

:holly: Anar

ETA: I posted the link, and removed it because I think it would be better to go through Ka-Bloom's link and then copy and paste this into the search: Extras: The Scripts: Series One and Two

Thank you so much for these scans Kathryn and Jupiter. I particularly like the pics. where Orlando is preparing for a scene.

Fiore I love that wig - it is so fetching. Our Barristers wear the same headgear, like the Brit. system, so I don't find it an oddity. Orlando's wig is new and I think it suits him. I wouldn't mind him being my Defence Counsel, at all, at all.

That pic. with the cute finger to the mouth, is a gem. I like that he's never afraid to send himself up.

As for the book. Well, it is Christmas!
