CRIMINAL MINDS: MEETING SCOTT DAVID & GINA GARCIA SHARP
My Criminal Minds morning continues: We decided to take a tour of the studio while the cast continued shooting the same scene over and over again. While sitting in Craft Services I was introduced to Scott David (Casting Director) and Gina Garcia Sharp (Associate Casting Director). I was really thrilled to tell them what a great job they do casting Criminal Minds and how much I have enjoyed the guest stars. They are both so down to earth and genuinely sweet. After talking about the blog for a few minutes I asked Scott if he would please take a look at Kris's pic and resume and I explained Kris's relationship to all of us. I really wish you had all been there because it is so unbelieveable but I promise this is the truth. Scott took the resume from me, told me that he would take care of having Kris called in so he could get his third Sag voucher immediately, posed for a few pictures, and left to go take care of the Kris matter. I stood there in disbelief at the generousity of this wonderful man who would take time immediately out of his busy day to do me a favor. While Scott was off securing Kris's presence on the set for the next day I had the great priviledge of speaking with Gina. I have many stories to tell about her in this travel diary but at this point in the day all I knew about Gina was that she is funny, pretty and very sweet. I had no way of knowing that this woman has made magic happen before.............because I had not yet met Kirsten......but that was soon to change!
