Ive been to autograph sessions when I was a teenager with some popular bands at the time which I wont name right now.

My grade 8 teacher was the mom of one of the tigercats.  Umm..tyheres a bunch more.  My family kind of sort of has luck with run ins with famous people--especiallly when we arent looking specifically for it!

Oh, one more...when I was a teenager in the late 90's, my friend, his cousin and I were at a truck stop and we saw Tom Wopat using the payphone. He looked really agitated at whoever he was talking to. The cousin wanted to go get his autograph; I begged him not to because I didn't think we should annoy him. He did anyway...I was so embarrassed. I literally did a facepalm and mouthed 'sorry' to him; he in turn rolled his eyes at the cousin as he ran back to our car.

I met a lot of voice actors from Friendship is Magic, G.M Barrow (MLP novel writer), and other FIM staff at Pony conventions if that counts. I had some amazing genuine conversations with many of them. It was awesome :)
One even spotted me later at the con music event and asked me to dance with him :D I never dance but it was the coolest thing, he was a seriously nice guy.
Met a few famous fan artists too. Maybe that's more to me but it was certainly cool to meet them.
Besides that never random encounters that I know of.
Buying any and all Sonic the Hedgehog items of any kind I don't already have. Can also trade ponies of all generations.

Yes but I don't get starstruck, I treat them like everyday people.  :)

Many years ago I was working in Staples, specifically in the ‘Business Machines’ department (printers, shredders, etc).  One day Terry Pratchett casually strolls into my department with his wife.  I’m behind the counter with a couple of coworkers and I am dying, I’d already been a huge Pratchett fan for years at this point, I was hissing “OMG IT’S TERRY PRATCHETT” to them and they were like... “who?”

Philistines.

Anyway I scuttle over to see if I can help.  They’re shopping for an overhead projector for their niece, a freshly qualified teacher.  I’m trying to be super professional and impressive, resolved to wow them with my cutting-edge knowledge of overhead projectors and then ask for an autograph after I’d checked them out.  I’d successfully held it together as I’d worked my way through our display models, but when I’d got to the last one instead of saying “and this projector” I said “and this Pratchett” and then I just shrivelled up in mortification while he and his wife creased up.  They were really nice about it but I was so embarrassed!  I was too discombobulated to ask for an autograph.

I’ve also been formally introduced to Prince Charles and I’ve met two Omani princes and an Emerati sheik, but for me Terry Pratchett is miles more exciting!

Been in contact with group members of the band Blessid Union of Souls for close to 20 years now. Most people forget who they are or don't even realize that's their song. Awesome guys, highly recommended tunes.
Oh yes, I fangirled most tastefully at Hugo Ferreria, lead singer of the band Tantric (formerly Days of the New). That made my year, I love him...

Yes,many times, and it is overrated.

My best advice is, don't meet your idols   :rofl:
 
The one thing I find good with celebs, if they are the curious type, is that you can talk to them about anything because they have experienced so much. Downside, a major one, is that many of them talk like they are being interviewed. You many not see it at first but eventually you just..what da... ?

And the worst, dating one, especially band members, they are often on loooooooong tours..girls hate on you, bullying like crazy. I just ..yeah..not big on celebs.

some band members before they got more popular, and actors at Comicons. never run into any in an unexpected place, and tbh if I did I probably wouldn't talk to them.

I've met quite a few as I work in customer service, I don't think they're that known outside of Sweden though. Lisa Miskowsky, Dennis Lyxen, Caroline af Ugglas, some skistars and actors I don't remember the name of.
