I loaded the whole cast of High School Musical Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Lucas Grabeel,Corbin Bleu, and Monique Coleman.
I had an appearance on the View and met Rosie O'Donnell, and another talk show host Montel Williams. Montel was a little weird because I had to clean the elevator while he watched so that he was sure he wouldnt get hit with something, get sick or whatnot!
My brother who is also is a cast member is VIP trained and has been in the position for some years now. He is especially trained in "high priority" people and has been a tour guide for heads of state, kings and quenns, prince's and princess' and many many more!
And I've also waited on Jamie Farr. Let me tell you, the nose is bigger in person than on TV! :) But a very nice and personable guy.
I had been recruited, back in the late 80's, to run the audio/visual department for a small convention (Unicon) in Concord (California). The guest-of-honor that year was Peter Davison, who some of you may recognize as one of the actors who played the lead role in the British sci-fi series "Dr. Who."
Peter also had one other wildly popular TV show to his credit: Specifically, the role of Tristan on "All Creatures Great and Small." It was this that gave me The Idea. ;-)
When the time came for Peter's main panel event, essentially a get-together and Q & A in the big ballroom at the hotel, I was (of course) running the sound for it personally, along with a close friend of mine. In came Peter, to an extended round of very enthusiastic applause.
As he started to sit down, I cut loose with the sound effect of a very deep-voiced cow, mooing, from the CD full of sound effects I had cued up mere seconds before.
The effect was priceless! Peter froze with his rear just halfway down to the chair, only his eyes flipping back and forth -- and then the entire room just about died laughing, which segued into another round of applause.
Peter, being the great sport he is, appreciated the joke as much as anyone, and later made explicit reference to one of his other roles where, he insisted, he was very "unlike Tristan, who spent most of his time with his arm up the rear of a cow..."
To this day, I wish someone had been standing by with a camera. That would truly have been a "Kodak Moment" (or "Kodiak," if you happen to live in Alaska). ;-)
Keep the peace(es).
My sister used to work at Epcot in the 80's and she said that Michael Jackson and his crew had the WHOLE Park to themselves after closing.
