Actress Gillian Anderson had the shock of her life the other day at the Royal Court Theatre where she is starring in The Sweetest Swing in Baseball. A man with a 6ft high stuffed dinosaur, and four baby dinosaurs, was sitting in the front row. When people in the second row complained about the obstruction to their view, it transpired that the dinosaur's ticket was paid for, at 25 for the seat.

The man also bought his docile pet a half pint of beer at the bar in the interval. He was persuaded to put his companion on the floor during the second half, but they all popped up afterwards to meet the actress at the end of the show.

Thanks to Amy Evenstad!
