Oh..my...GOODNESS! What a fantastic weekend. I have never been on a fan outing like this, let alone, a cruise...but it was so much fun. I cannot tell you how gracious and kind the actors were who spent hours and hours every day meeting people at the event.
There were 2500 people on this cruise, I kid you not...and, the people from the show chatted with everyone, literally. Each person was given a warm hug, a smile, moments to chat with them...I have never seen anything like this before.
This is one of my favorite photos from the weekend. That is me with Norman Reedus who plays the scruffy but sexy Darryl on The Walking Dead. What got me laughing so much was that, he asked me how to spell my name. I told him, and then, he said it was very pretty. I thanked him and said my name was a bit unusual in this country. He said that he was Just Norman...didn't matter where in the world he went he was also Just Norman...but it was the way he said it, and, then he had grabbed my cell phone to take this photo. I was laughing so hard at his comments...and the result was this great, silly photo. I just love it.
Thank you Norman Reedus, your fellow actors, the passengers who were just there to have fun and spent 3 days chatting with each other, being kind to each other and the actors...just amazing Thank you to the crew of the Norwegian Pearl and Sixthman Enterprises who put on this entire event that came off without a hitch. Again...just amazing.
This kind of magic is another indication of why The Walking Dead remains such a hit show. They invest so much into the characters, the writing, the show, but more importantly...the fans!
