Tony Blair surprises actor Lowe backstage

July 31, 2005 at 6:11 PM

LONDON, July 31 (UPI) -- British Prime Minister Tony Blair visited Rob Lowe backstage during the actor's rehearsals for a London production of "A Few Good Men."

Lowe, who presumably is used to being recognized, was a bit taken aback this time.

"I've got my underwear on, and someone says, 'You have a visitor,'" Lowe told the magazine. "Striding toward me, I see Tony Blair."

Blair wanted to thank Lowe personally for comments he actor had made the previous day -- urging Americans to visit London as a show of solidarity following bomb attacks on the London Underground.
