Note from Callan Mulvey!

So a few weeks ago I wrote a letter to Callan Mulvey.

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.





'Dear Carly
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,
Callan Mulvey

Wow. :)

  7. FANTASTIC. That is so ACE, you must have been so excited. Did you get it and think "who the bloody hell is writing to me... the writing looks vaguely familiar" and then go.."oh yeah, I wrote on that envelope" whenever I've had to do selve addressed anythings, I always do that. Perhaps I should go back to being blonde, lol.

    Maybe that just happens to me, I have the worst memory :P

    He is gorgeous though. Even more so now- what a sweetie.

    Hope this next week is better for you hun, you know if you ever need an ear my mobile isn't too far away. Chris xxx

  12. What a lovely letter.

    It's the random kindess of people that makes life so special at times.

    I am repeating this as a mantra today. It's been crazy at work and we're all getting by on laughter and group debriefs...

  15. OMG, that's so awesome of him Carls! How nice of him to take the time out to do that, considering most actors require at least $2o per autograph. What a champ, you must be chuffed :D

  16. OMG!! That's fantastic!! I must admit I wasn't too familiar with him although I recognised the name. Then someone mentioned Heartbreak High - which I absolutely loved. Just did a google search and how could I have not realised who he is!!! I had a big crush on him in Heartbreak High lol *blush* What a top bloke though for sending the pics back signed and the lovely note. A fantastic pick me up for you Carly, especially after recent events. Just what to doctor ordered eh? lol I'm really pleased for you :-)

    Take care
