I was grabbing a quick bite and she was going to the PO Box at the back of the complex. It was late and quiet, I said hello to her as she walked by and she nodded, smiled, and said hello back.
On her way back from getting her mail, when she passed me again, I told her how much I loved her as Caroline on the show. She thanked me and was appreciative of the recognition. Then to my surprise, she said that she'd had a really long day and asked if I minded if she sat with me. She ordered some food and we gabbed about life for the duration of the meal. Very genuine and nice lady.
As happenstance would have it, I ran into her about 5 years later when we were both in line for the valet from an event we were both at. Not only did she remember me, she asked abut my dog and my partner, and my family of Days watchers. I guess that's the kind of memory an actress must have in order to know her lines - she is a class act all the way around.
Thanks for you post to remind me of such a nice moment in time for me.
