Back in the day in 2004 nearly 9 years ago back in August, My family and I were coming back from shopping in the evening and what happened was we were on a busy street coming back to our place, and all of a sudden we see bright lights, cranes, and trucks used for movies. So we stopped on the side and parked the vehicle, and I went up close and personal to the scene and I had heard that Director and Film Producer Atom Egoyan was there producing and filming the movie “Where the Truth Lies” with Kevin Bacon, Colin Firth, Alison Lohman, and all the actors were there and filming inside this Chinese restaurant and I finally know how they created thunderstorms and rain from the outside. I was so excited when I heard those actors were inside, but I only met Kevin Bacon and Alison Lohman and I was not able to meet Colin Firth as he was still filming inside and We were not permitted to go inside.
So As Kevin Bacon was about to go back to the other scene to film in Downtown, Toronto, I yelled for his name Saying Kevin! He stopped and he smiled with me and I asked to take a picture with him and I took a picture with him and I said thank you so much, and he said anytime dear, so he went to the other location. I mean talk about being at the right place at the right time. I couldn’t believe I met Kevin Bacon before. He is such a wonderful actor and he’s been in so many movies, with so many actors and actresses and I feel like I connected with all of them once I met Kevin Bacon. I remember the degrees of Kevin Bacon, so I said I am 0 Degrees from Kevin and then 1 Degree from Kyra Sedgwick which is his wife, and then all the other actors that are associated with him and the movie directors, producers. I will never forget that day. It was an amazing night. It does take a lot of hard work to produce these movies and it takes a lot of man hours to have it all done.
I remember then taking the pictures and having them developed instantly. I had taken the pictures in the other ordinary cameras that wasn’t a digital camera, so I started taking pictures of random things so that I can have that picture. It didn’t come out the way I expected, but it is still something and a memory that will live on with me forever. I have had so much luck with meeting celebrities, TV anchors, reporters and other famous faces of the world, and it happens when I least expect it, like when I was in Vegas how I saw Jerry Bruckheimer, Ted Danson, George Eads, and Jorja Fox filming CSI Las Vegas on Fremont Street last year in October 2012. It is incredible how you follow these people on television and someday you cross paths with them and you are in the same atmosphere as them. It’s so incredible. I hope to one day meet so many of my favourite celebrities and I hope I can have the pleasure of doing so. Lets hope and lets see where the future takes me, but its amazing how I can meet these people. I know they are people like you and I, and I know they are human and they work and make a living too, but its pretty amazing how movies and shows are done. I can finally put it all together.
Have you met celebrities? Have you had an encounter with any famous person?
