I worked at Six Flags Magic Mountain so I saw a few celebrities there. There was one night when the park closed early for a private party. I was stocking candy when a little kid approached me before someone grabbed his hand. I looked up to find myself face to face with Princess Leia herself(Carrie Fisher). I didn't say anything since I was working but I was going crazy inside. I also saw Hulk Hogan, Lloyd & Jeff Bridges, Will Smith & Jada Pinkett, Cameron Diaz, The guys from New York Undercover, and others.

I was also lucky enough to meet some people during or after concerts. I went to see Marla Sokoloff perform with her band Smitten. I jumped up on a couch for a better view and when the lights came back on I realized I was standing next to Mena Suvari the whole time. I've met Adam Corolla, Dr. Drew Pinksky, Zakk Wylde, 2 band members from Orgy, Static-X, Shavo Odadjian (System of a Down), Dino Cazares (Fear Factory), and a few others. One night, after a Jimmy Kimmel Live taping, my sister & I ran into Danny Bonaduce and his wife & kids. My sister loved watching his show and took a picture with them. His wife was really cool.

My favorite though was when a friend of mine invited me to tag along when she visited the set of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It was freakin' AWESOME! I got to walk around Buffy's house and school and watch them film a scene with Xander and Willow. I was able to meet Joss Whedon, Nicholas Brendan, Alyson Hannigan, & Anthony Head. Sarah Michelle Gellar was doing the Jay Leno show so she wasn't there. We were getting ready to leave when Eliza Dushku stopped in front of us. I didn't recognize her because she was filming the first scenes as the Faith character but she was fully dressed up in a tight outfit and looked amazing. I pretty much froze when I met her.

Oh, and I helped Jonathan Silverman(Weekend at Bernies) get his water heater repaired when I worked as a dispatcher.

Lol! Yeah, they told us they didn't like to have visitors on the set but it was a special occasion for a school project.

This doesn't count, but I know someone who was a background character in War of the Worlds, but only in the beginning when people were getting vaporized.

The Game.

Is it after 9PM EST? You should probably ignore the above post.
