OMG Was That Quentin Tarantino?

2.jpgYou won’t believe who I had in my skip!

A GOOD Samaritan truck driver came to the aid of his favourite movie hero when he spotted him wandering lost through the streets of Liverpool.

Steve Potts, was on his way to a job in his skip hire truck on Wednesday afternoon, when he caught sight of a familiar face in the city centre.

But it was only when the 46-year-old doubled-back that he realised the man was in fact Hollywood director, Quentin Tarantino, who was in town for the launch of his movie, Death Proof.

Dad-of-one Steve, who works for CCS Skiphire in Kirkby, said: “I didn’t know he was in town so when I drove past I didn’t think for one second that he was the real thing.

“As luck would have it, I was due to pick up a skip from a site opposite the Hope Street Hotel where he was staying during his visit.

“A crowd was gathered outside so I asked someone what was happening and was told that Quentin Tarantino was staying there.

“I realised it must have been him who I’d seen.

“I loaded the skip onto the truck and drove back the way I came to see if I could spot him”.

Steve found the director, famed for movies including Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs, stopped at traffic lights on the opposite side of the road along Mount Pleasant.

He said: “I yelled to him ‘Wait there Quentin, mate, I’ll come and give you a lift’ and then drove round to get him”.

Steve, who has worked for CCS Skiphire for three years, is a big fan of Tarantino and his films.

He said they chatted about what he was up to in Liverpool and what he thought of the city.

Steve, from Halewood, said: “He was very nice and really chatty. He told me he liked the city and found the people here very friendly”.

Contrary to belief that Tarantino was worse for wear after a drunken night, Steve said he actually picked him up at around 3.30pm on his way back from the city centre. He said: “He told me he rarely got a day off and so had gone into town to do some shopping.

“He may have been slightly lost as he was in a strange city but he seemed fine and didn’t appear to be drunk”.

On whether Tarantino offered him anything in return of the favour, Steve added: ‘I wouldn’t have taken anything from him, I was made up just to talk to him.

“He was quite happy with me taking some photos on my phone to show my mates and that’s all that I wanted.”
