Advent Calendar Contest

00dec18

It’s starting to feel a lot like Christmas!

As in previous years, we’re counting down the days to the winter holidays with an Advent Calendar and an overview of Andrew’s career – past, present and future. As in previous years, this will also be a contest and a chance for you to win some prizes!

There will be 24 pictures taken from his different projects and events he attended, posted on 24 consecutive days on Twitter and our Facebook Page. Why don’t you test your knowledge about Andrew’s career by guessing the context of each picture (for example, the picture above is taken from his Nutritiously Nicola interview)?

Everyone is welcome to play along! However, prizes are this time exclusively limited to members of our Facebook Group. So come and join us!

Among the prizes are our popular super sized Andrew postcards, an exclusive Andrew Gower wall calendar – and the highly prestigous title of “Andrew Gower Fan of the Year“!

We look forward to welcoming you in our group and continue to #LoveAndrew ❀️!

Thank you from Andrew

Andrew gifted us with one of his rare tweets to thank all his fans (you!) for all the birthday love he received yesterday.

It was our absolute pleasure, Andrew, and we hope you had a great day!

Additionally to numerous tweets by fans from all over the world, Andrew was also greeted by some of his former co-stars, including Annette Badland (Midsomer Murders), Sophie Skelton and Caitriona Balfe (Outlander):

Happy Birthday, Andrew!

Happy Birthday, Andrew!

 

Dear Andrew

This comes from all your fans (that’s only a small selection up there!) and from the bottom of our hearts:

Have a smashing birhday today! We hope that on your special day today you are showered with presents, cake and lots of love!

Thank you for the time you took this year to meet your fans in Las Vegas, Birmingham, New Jersey and Glasgow. Everybody loved meeting you and we hope you had a good time meeting us as well.

For the upcoming year, we wish you all the best, good health, happiness and that all your dreams may come true.

With all our love

Your Fans

Don’t forget the #BonnieBDay tomorrow!

Please remember our #BonnieBDay campaign for Andrew’s birthday tomorrow!

He turns 29 on Thursday, 8 November!

If you’re on Twitter or Instagram, tweet or post and wish @TheAndrewGower a #BonnieBDay (please use the hashtag!)

You can find Andrew on Twitter and Instagram.

If you tag us as well, we’ll re-tweet & share your post!

Please share this info as well, so everybody knows about our campaign!

Thank you so very much and continue to #LoveAndrew!

Birthday Collage

In addition to our #BonnieBDay campaign, we’d love to surprise Andrew with a collage of fan pictures – pictures he has taken with fans over the years (at conventions or stage door) or that his fans have taken with each others (what’s a better way to kill time waiting in convention queues than taking selfies, right?).

So if you have picture that fit into either category, please e-mail them to us!

(By e-mailing us your picture you give us permission to use it for the birthday collage, which will be posted on Twitter and Instagram on Andrew’s birthday on 8 November, and you also confirm that you have your friends’ permission that might appear in it.)

Looking forward to your contributions!

Thank you for your support and #LoveForAndrew!

Happy Halloween!

 

Happy Halloween to all our ghouls and boos. πŸ‘» We hope you’re having a spooktacular day!!! πŸŽƒ (if you’re celebrating this holiday – if not, we still hope you have a great day anyway!)

A perfect treat for the day (not a trick, we swear!) is catching up on some of Andrew’s past projects with supernatural themes.

Our picks are as follows:

  • Of course, there is our darling Cutler. Andrew portrayed the cocky vampire solicitor on the UK cult show Being Human during its 4th season in 2012. Of all of Andrew’s characters, Cutler undoubtedly had the best lines, and Andrew’s perfect delivery made them pure gold!

Watch some of our favourite scenes on YouTube!

 

  • If you want supernatual but also romance, Frankenstein’s Wedding is your thing! Andrew plays “mad” scientist Dr Victor Frankenstein in this live recording of the 2011 live event – not a supernatural being himself, he only creates them. 😱 But Andrew plays the lead – and he sings! What more could you want?

 

 

  • Looking at this list, one could get the impression that many of Andrew’s characters do not live to fight another day. This assumption is not completely untrue – after all, he did die 7 times as 5 different characters. Yes, this means some of them died more than once. Poor Jake here was really not having the best of days when he encountered the Misfits gang in 2012.

 

 

Enjoy and #LoveAndrew πŸ’• !

Fan Art Winner

Last but not least we’re very happy to announce our fan art winner, Twitter follower and group member, Nancy Hibberd!

Nancy created this beautiful fan video about Outlander‘s Bonnie Prince Charlie. We cannot even begin to fathom how much creativity, work and determination must have gone into the creation of this gem, so this is a very well deserved first winner!

Congratulations, Nancy!

Please e-mail us with your address so we can send you your Andrew calendar!

 

Poetry Winner

andrewbonnieprince

The winner of our poetry contest is the wonderfully talented poet, our Twitter follower and group member Jackie Merrell!

She originally wrote this poem for Andrew when he attended Starfury’s Highlanders 3 convention in Birmingham this summer. The poem itself is about Outlander‘s Bonnie Prince Charlie.

The White Cockade
by J. Merrell

It’s hard to know,
just who you can trust,
surrounded by the white cockade
proudly worn in solidarity,
yet no loyalty in sight,
emblem of my family
and symbol of my duty displayed,
will anything I do matter
to the man I call father?
Fighting for a cause not my own
in a country with no real ties
holding me to its breast,
and in the end I don’t know
which way to turn
or what is right anymore
in the blinding blaze of battles lost.

Andrew loved the poem – and who are we to disagree with him?

Congratulations, Jackie!

Only 10 days later, on 22 September 2016, the Twitter account followed.

In (almost) two years, we gained 351 members on Facebook and 1870 followers on Twitter – reason enough for us to say a HUGE THANK YOU for all the love and support!

Murdoch Mysteries Petition

CBC ad

If you loved Andrew’s performance as David Kingsley/ Sherlock Holmes as much as we did, we’d appreciate it if you’d consider signing our petition.

Even if it might not sway the Murdoch Mysteries‘s producers and writers to actually bring him back (one can still hope!), it will show Andrew our support and appreciation of his work.
