The really big news is that the Q Brunch served up a LOT of surprise guests that, I have to tell you, had me totally star struck:
Rachel Ames (Audrey): I started babbling like an idiot. "I have watched since you first episode and I loved your stewardess outfit and I was 4 and cried because *I* couldn't have one like it and I think you're wonderful and thank you so much for coming here today and will you sign this?" I'm a dork, what can I say?
Chris Robinson (Rick Webber #2): I asked if I could have a photo with him and he said "absolutely!" and I started walking around behind the table to get one and someone else called him down to take a photo with Denise Alexander (Lesley) and he ditched me flat.
Gail Ramsey (Susan Moore): When the commemorative DVD to honor 30 Years of Alan and Monica was showing and it came to Alan's death scene where he said, "I have never loved any woman but you, Monica," Gail yelled out, "I OBJECT!"
Steve Bond (Jimmy Lee Holt): This boy looks rode hard and put up wet and has that George Hamilton tan thing going on. When Starr asked for his autograph he immediately said, "You have no idea who I am, do you? You aren't nearly old enough." She fired back, "No, but my Mom says I'm supposed to like you." That's my girl.
John Reilly: He's still Sean Donely. Don't let anyone kid you.
I was sorry to see Jane Elliot did not come. I know she doesn't do fan events, but I thought she might make an exception since this is the 30th anniversary of Alan and Monica. I thought sure Steve Burton would be there as the prodigal son. I hoped for Sean Canan or Billy Warlock. What can I say, I'm greedy!
The LCFC did a fantastic job on the commemorative DVD and I would LOVE to get a copy of it. They should market it for Leslie's charity!
Rick Hearst's event went well and Lonnnnng as he talked everyone's leg off and let them hold his (very heavy) Emmy Award. He also announced that he will be getting a dad on the show as the role of Trevor Lansing is cast.
More to come!!
