So, here’s what happened to me as related to White Collar:
1) I was lucky enough to take another trip to NYC and see them shoot the show just a little bit. Unfortunately Matt was sick for part of the visit so we only saw him briefly the day of his Emmy Nom news. Was lucky enough to get caught on camera (in the background) apparently if you look up the “Access Hollywood” segment he did that week. After he was interviewed by about 4 different shows he the fans some love by signing things, taking pics and a photographer was nice enough to get a group shot with everyone there (my group and some other girls included) so we got a very nice full shot with Matt. The nicest part, when we were gathering for the shot, he put his arm around me and said “Ok everyone, lets get together for this shot!” LOL and I just let him pull me close. 😀 (dying in a good way)
2) Finally got to go to the TOP of the Empire State Bldg. OMG that is the most beautiful view ever! You can see everything and I got some nice shots of the city and WTC memorial tower. I also convinced some of my group to go to the Chrysler Bldg lobby which I had always wanted to see so that was something else we did. You can’t go up to the top but you can visit the lobby which has some nice art deco decor that’s pretty. I also got some awesome shots of the Chrysler from the outside:
3) Met Tim and Willie and the Photobomber crew man who was always showing up in fan pics. Mainly we watched some scene with Willie getting filmed for the next episode “All’s Fair.” Most of the scenes were inside so we only saw a bit of Willie on the outside and he was also scooting along from the set to wherever they had their catering. 🙂 His son was with him too and kept going back and forth between the set and somewhere else.
4) and now to make this related to Fan Fiction… I recently did a story for the Live journal group White Collar Big Bang and Reverse Big Bang. Look it up online. I also am working on another story for the LJ White Collar Hurt/Comfort Advent. I’ll be posting on the 12th and no I am not revealing the storyline. 😛 You’ll have to wait like everyone else. 😉 The prompt is at LJ but I choose to keep it quiet for now. 😉
That’s it. Figured I should update once in a long while.
I am sad that White Collar has to go with only 3 more episodes left. I’ve spent the last 6 years watching this show, meeting up with the cast during part of that time and visiting NYC only to find I love everything about the show and cast/crew more than ever.
