Meeting a Star!


Marilyn Monroe
Wouldn't it be nice if we could meet our favorite actors/actresses/singers? If you love film and television, I think its nice have the chance to say "thank you" to the artists you have admired or enjoyed on the screen.

This past weekend I went to the Chiller Theatre Convention. I have been to horror conventions before, I know-Bunny going to horror conventions? But hey, I love film and I love socializing so why not? Conventions are not for everyone. I have never been to a Comic Con or a Star Trek Convention, those make me a tad bit nervous because they seem so intense.

The Chiller Theatre Convention happens in New Jersey and basically film and television stars-past and present, as well as, musicians, singers, wrestlers etc attend to be able to greet their fans and interact with them. In this type of convention you can actually chat with them and I think that is just so neat!

My main goal was to meet Patty Duke. I have been a fan of hers since I was about eleven having grown up on 50's and 60's television shows (as well as the usual 70's and 80's of course). I got a chance to tell her how much I admire her strength and bravery as she has battled mental illness throughout her lifetime. What a moment for me. Ms. Duke and her husband are true gems.

Dennis the Menace
I also met Rico Browning who was The Creature from the Black Lagoon and the last living Universal monster. As well as Jay North and Jeannie Russell from Dennis the Menace-another show I grew up watching. Meeting them was just out of this world!

I also met Jeffrey Combs, Barry Bostwick, David WarnerLarry Wilcox, and Ilan Mitchell-Smith who were all so kind, sweet, and were such gentlemen. They each complimented me on my vintage look and that just made my day even brighter to say the least. We met a few other amazing people-what a enjoyable event! Even my family starting getting into it-all nine of us(the five of us plus my brother's family)!!

I posted all the photos I took of the event and you can look at them on my Facebook page. I am so glad I brought the kiddies-they enjoyed themselves as much as we did and we hope to go again in the fall! 

If you ever get a chance to meet your favorite artists or to speak to them, I highly recommend doing so. It is a little nerve-racking at first but they are people too!

  3. Wow! Patty Duke! That is so amazing you met her. I grew up watching her reruns on Nick at Nite. I wish I could be that calm and collected meeting my favorite stars but learned I am not very good at keeping it cool when I met one of my heroes a while back, John Waters. And my eyes were closed in the one photo I got with him! Argh!

    Super cute dress by the way ;-) Love the color combo!

  5. How neat!!! I've never met any of my favorite singers/actors/writers most have passed or are no longer in the spotlight. I'm so glad you got to meet some of yours, though. Lucky, you, Bunny!!

  7. How fabulously exciting! Aside from running into a Canadian children's entertainer (named Charlotte Diamond) at the entrance to a grocery store with my mom when I was maybe three or four years old (and supposedly - I have no memory of this, being held as a baby by the singer Tal Bachman because he briefly knew one of my aunts), I've yet to come face-to-face with any famous folks.
