Channing Tatum finished filming his crime drama ‘Son of No One‘ in New York City earlier this month. From day one of filming on April 5th fans have been really great about sending me photos and fan encounters from set. On today’s post in the CTU Photo Gallery, we have over 40 new pics that you guys were able to get with the notoriously fan-friendly star as he filmed all over Queens in April and May.
Below, you all can read about two fan’s recent encounters…the first, from fan Heather on the ‘Son of No One‘ set in New York last month and the second, a chance meeting with fan Brooke in Barcelona (where Chan filmed Steven Soderbergh’s action-revenge spy thriller ‘Knockout‘ earlier this year)…
“Hello guys! I just wanted to be able to share my story and photographs from my Encounter with Chan. I’ve been a fan of Channing Tatum for a LONG time. I think the first movie I saw him in was in Havoc with Anne Hathaway…Later, I saw She’s the Man and Step Up which made me “fall in love” with him even more…
…I got to the set at 10:30 AM and felt extremely awkward because my friend and I were the only ones there at the time and Channing was no where to be found since they were filming inside a house. A lot of the crew members were giving us weird looks and I was extremely intimidated. I went to my car to go tell my ride that maybe we should just leave and then I turned me head to see Channing hopping into a car. I was in awe. I looked at my friend and ride and said “Holy Lord, I swear to God that I just saw Chan just get in that car!” They didn’t believe me so my friend and I went for a walk to try and find the trailers to see if Channing was there. I didn’t see anyone in the area of the trailers so we went walking back up to the set. As we were walking, the car that Channing had gotten into drove past me. I looked into the car, and Chan smiled at me. I tried to catch up with it but by the time I got to the house, he had already gone inside.
To make this long and amazing story short, I saw Channing get into his car and go to the trailers once more and decided to stand outside the trailer in any attempt of at least speaking him since it was getting late, and it was extremely hot out. Around 3:15, Channing finally did come out of the trailer and socialized with his fans. I talked to him briefly but he introduced himself and thanked me for waiting for such a long time. I am glad to say that after 5 hours of waiting, my dream came true; I went home with a ton of pictures, a full heart, a mean sunburn (not one of the greater parts of the day), and bragging rights…The experience was fantastic and I thank Chan a million times for making my wildest dreams come true!”
Here’s a new video showing fans and Chan during one of the many set encounters…
“Ah Channing Tatum! On the last day of our trip, we had to meet up at the Hard Rock Cafe, Barcelona. While waiting in the lobby with a few of my friends, I happened to see him standing next to us. I have met a few actors in my life and I never would have guessed that he was as sweet as he was. He couldn’t have been any nicer; something that one doesn’t expect while meeting someone like himself. He was very friendly and was curious about why were in Spain and where were from. After he was called for his reservation, he gave me a hug! Definitely the best way to end a trip.”
