CRIMINAL MINDS: WEDNESDAY UP UNTIL 11 AM.
Criminal Minds Trip Day One: I wanted to share some final thoughts about my first morning on the set. This was the last day of the filming of "Ashes and Dust" and they were behind their schedule. The entire place was a buzz with activity. So far I had been introduced briefly to Shemar Moore, Paget Brewster, and Matthew Gray Gubler. I had been hugged by Mandy Patinkin. This was Kirsten's day off and I knew she wasn't coming to the set to meet me until the afternoon. A.J. was in the wardrobe room being fitted for the next day's shooting. I already had the honor of speaking with Ed Bernero, Charles Caroll, many of the writers including Andrew Wilder and Aaron Zelman, production staff, Scott David, Gina Garcia Sharp and makeup and hair artists. Watching them film scenes was fascinating. The morning was going very well and it was just about to get much much better!
One thing that you notice immediately is that Paget Brewster is stunning. Absolutely beautiful and as thin as a rail. Matthew Gubler is incredibly cute with a smile that lights any room he is in. Shemar Moore is so much better looking in person than in any picture I have ever seen. Thomas Gibson is incredibly handsome and Mandy is thin, trim and handsome. Watching them work together is not what you expect. Even though they were behind in filming they all still got along together so well. Joking and talking. There are no prima donnas on this set. Just a well oiled professional machine!
Either later tonight or tomorrow we will head over to Craft Services and have some fun with some very special people. :)
