A quick google, he's an irish actor whose starred in war horse & safe house, he is also an electrician according to wikipedia.
Some might know him from Game Of Thrones.
Oh really? Which character is he? EDIT: Oh, the smuggler, in that case I retract my "Who?".
I haven't met anyone famous. I headbutted Steve Davis in the nuts in Hamley's once (I was 7) but I don't think that counts as "meeting".
No signature worth mentioning...
I've also been in Clare Newsome's house, does that count?

Once had a pee next to Michael Grade; he said "HELLO!" so loudly I stopped peeing and took a while to get going again.
I once worked in a camera shop in Yeovil in the mid-80's and Oliver Tobias (you know, the actor, of course you remember him!) popped in, from time to time.

The one I'm still gutted at missing out on was Muhammed Ali. He was doing a book signing in Croydon when I was working down that way, but unfortunately, I was the only member of management in the shop I worked in that day, so I was unable to leave.
All the other staff went, and I wish to this day I'd broken the company rules and popped out for 30 mins. " />
Oh, and gel, you know he doesn't really exist don't you.
