The world is a much smaller place than it used to be. When I was very young, I was fortunate enough to see JFK on the campaign trail, twice. The first time, I happened to be in a 2nd story window of a bank where my aunt worked, and had an amazing vantage point. The man went by in the motorcade, saw me and waved right at my window.
Right then, I knew I’d grow up to be Bill Clinton. Or something like that. It’s easy to get star struck. If that was a once-in-a-lifetime event, how come it is that we can now literally greet celebrities daily?
I’m suddenly in a very new world. How odd it is to have exchanged tweets (plural) with Adam Baldwin, Ali Adler and even one with Josh Schwartz. Well, me and a zillion others. I sometimes let myself realize that this is some sort of everyday miracle, and that they are outgoing people and love to communicate as much as I do.
They are much more approachable than you might expect, even those who are the shiniest of stars. And it’s wonderful to see that, despite the withering effects of the spotlight on them constantly, both Zac Levi and Yvonne Strahovski insist on being real people. Adam Baldwin would be the first to say “…And don’t you forget that!”
