CRIMINAL MINDS: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO PAGET BREWSTER

I hope that Paget Brewster has a wonderful birthday. I did not take any candid solo pictures of Paget during my visit to the set. It wasn't because I did not want to but rather because my time with her was so limited and I had to make decisions on whether to talk with her or take her picture. I choose wisely. Paget is a very gentle person. She loves her character, Emily Prentiss, and working with this cast and crew. She does read this blog and we discussed some of the reasons many of the people who post on the blog have taken awhile to warm to her character. It is easy to tell an actor or actress that it is nothing personal when you have taken some time to accept their character but they invest a part of themselves into their characters and they do want their character to be liked and accepted. I watched Paget shoot for hours on end and never did I see her act in anything other than a professional manner. She is so sweet and kind to her castmates. It is no wonder she is adored by everyone on the set. Tomorrow you will read about a meltdown I had on the set and how Paget's empathy saved the day for me. I can also tell you that she was genuinely surprised that she had received presents and cards from our group. She gladly signed every picture I asked her to for the Yahoo Group. I liked this woman and after watching her work I respected her very much as well. I hope she has a wonderful birthday and Paget if you are reading this: Thank you again for everything. I will never forget your kindness. Never! :)
