Yes I know what you're thinking. I'm a 28 year old writing a snail mail fan letter. I've not done that since I wrote to Darren Hayes in 1997, before that Shane Warne in 1993 (he wrote back!) and Southern Sons in 1990 (I have an autographed picture of them on the back of my toilet door).
The letter I wrote to Callan was full of admiration, respect and love. Not much gush.
I thanked him for taking the time from his day to have a chat, and told him what an inspiration he is coping with the effects of his car accident while working as a stellar actor.
I posted the letter last week, enclosing some photos and a stamped self addressed envelope.
And today my envelope arrived! It couldn't have arrived at a better time, and Callan's words to me couldn't be more apt.
It's seriously got me beaming.
He signed the photos and wrote a short note on one of the photos.
Thank you for your beautiful letter.
I think you're an inspiration for the way you are considering what you put up with and the pain you go through every day.
All the best,
