Series Wrap Party continued
The program started and the cast all got on stage with Chris Keyser, Amy Lippman, P.K. Simonds, Ken Topolsky, and a couple of Fox executives. Paula Devicq, Matthew Fox, Lacey Chabert, Neve Campbell, Scott Wolf, Jacob Smith, Jennifer Aspen, Jeremy London, Mitchell Anderson, Wilson Cruz, and Tom Mason were all up on the crowded stage. Scott Wolf spoke for the cast, Chris spoke about the show and then Amy introduced a clip reel. The cast got down off the stage so they could watch as well. I looked over and Matthew was standing right next to me.
The reel was intense, making me cry quite hard. For the first time I was really, really sad that the show was ending. Afterwards, two executives from Fox presented Chris and Amy with Hirschfeld caricatures of the Salinger family, promising copies for the cast.
I had wondered if Love had left early since she wasn't on the stage. TK's date commented that there was a girl that looked like she could be Love's sister standing behind us. We all turned and started to laugh. It was Love! We took this chance to stop and talk to P.K. Simonds. He had done an interview for TKTV last fall, so it was very nice to be able to thank him in person. I also took the chance to tell him that he was my favorite writer for the show. I told him that I wished he was David E. Kelley so that he could write all the episodes. He replied that HE wished he was David E. Kelley!
Malin had reported seeing Michael Goorjian. I thought she might be mistaken. I was rubbernecking around the room, nearly running straight into Lacey Chabert, until I did, in fact, see Michael.
We left the dance area and went to the patio. Matthew Fox was out there talking with other party guests. This was a quandary for me. I very much wanted to talk to him, but I didn't really have anything to say to him other than I had really liked his performances over the past six years. Tamara Taylor came in and started talking with him and his wife. I finally got up, apologized for interrupting and started my "I really like your work" schtick. They were all extremely nice.
