The closest I'll ever get to my first idol Lucille Ball.
Met Tom Papa at the "Get Schooled" event I was working. When is "The Marriage Ref" coming back? I love & miss that show. There's a show that deserves a reboot.
I met Lynn Redgrave at a NY Times event I was working. It was actually the 2nd time I met her. The 1st was during High School after a Q&A of her performance of "Shakespeare for My Father". I wrote her a letter asking for Acting Advice. She replied with my own issue of BackStage.
Due to my job in Promotions, I get to meet Celebrities once in a while. For this day, I was hired to be a fan of Shaun White for a Stride Gum event. I got gum & a picture with Shaun. Levin Rambin happened to arrive in the same car as him.
While on set for "Homeland", I got to see Dominic Fumusa practicing his lines, before going to set with Claire Danes.
During this Kelloggs event Melissa Joan Hart was pulled in numerous directions for Photo Ops. I was surprised her arm wasn't pulled off. Just went she got comfortable for one, she was needed for another.
This is one of the rare times I wasn't at work. I went to a Venus Gillette event and was happy to meet Kelly Monaco from my favorite soap opera "General Hospital". I meekly approached her & was delighted when she agreed to take a picture. The one without me looks better no? :)
During the Premiere Day of "Charmin", Molly Shannon made an appearance
Everytime I worked a Kozy Shack event at Mets Stadium, I bumped into this colorful bundle of joy. Oswaldo Gomez aka Ms. Colombia. I never knew his name nor reputation during the multiple times I met him. Repeatedly, I just was happy to encounter him, his energy, and his pets. He gave me motivation to always be myself. No matter how kooky one might think you look.
Meeting the "Good Morning America" crew (Lara Spencer with guest Nathan Fillion, Josh Elliot, Robin Roberts & Sam Champion) meant an early workday. All part of the Las Vegas Vacation promo.
I only met Tom Keeny, the voice of "Sponge Bob" because I was working a "Castle Rock" promo. Besides Acting, I too have a goal in VoiceOvers. I need to practice my Miss Piggy more.
At the same NY Times, Arts & Leisure Weekend event as Lynn Redgrave was this father-daughter duo. Billy Ray & Miley Cyrus. While Miley signed autographs, Billy gave her her space and only took pictures or signed himself, if he was approached or coaxed out of his corner.
I was dressed as a Christmas Elf when I came across Rosario Dawson for a Nescafe Dulce Gusto Promo.
"Mission Impossible 5 Rogue Nation" had a fan crazy premiere. I was one row deep from the sanctions and those walking the red carpet. Alec Baldwin, Dascha Polanco, JJ Abrams, Jeremy Renner, Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg & Tom Cruise.
