You never know who you might bump into...

I had spent the day in York thank to Visit Britain on a workshop on the growth of overseas visitors . At lunchtime some of us went out for a breathe of fresh air and noticed their was a film being made .  So at the end of the session who should I see .I asked him if I could take a photo as I thought the grandchildren might like to see what their wacky grandmother had been up to and he said it would be a pleasure and summoned his body guard to take the photos .

 Now that is what I call a real gentleman . It was Armand Anthony Assante who is an American actor. Best recognized for playing the role of John Gotti in the HBO miniseries ‘Gotti’. He has appeared in a number of TV films and dramas till date. His TV film credits include 'The Pirate', 'Passion and Paradise', 'The Hunley', 'Kidnapped', 'Blind Justice' and 'Shark Swarm'. As far as his work in television dramas is concerned, the actor has appeared on ‘Napoleon and Josephine: A Love Story', 'Jack the Ripper', 'The Odyssey', 'ER', 'NCIS' and 'Chuck'. In addition, Assante has been a part of numerous movies as well. He has acted in popular films like 'Q&A', 'The Road to El Dorado', 'American Gangster', 'The Red Maple Leaf', 'Kids vs Monsters', 'Shadows in Paradise', 'Breaking Point' and 'Confessions of a Pit Fighter'.
