This week’s EP:
Place of Birth: New York City, NY
What kind of kid were ya?
I was very shy…and quiet, I guess there aren’t any noisy shy kids..
(laughs) makes sense. Laura if you were to win 1 million dollars in the lottery tomorrow,
what would you do with it?
I would take a trip to see the Northern Lights.
What is the nicest thing anyone’s ever done for you?
Wow, (heavy sigh), that’s a really tough one.
“remember, there are no wrong answers, so, usually, the 1st thing that pops into your mind.”
(long pause) Uh, maybe, just because, it was the 1st time, maybe, the uh, woman
that cast me in my 1st play in LA.
“interesting, do you remember her name?”
Yes, Vanessa…. I can’t remember her last name (laughter)
that’s not really what you were looking for,
“No, it’s whatever comes to your head, there really are no wrong answers,
I know its hard when you’re put on the spot like that, I said (long story)
I just remembered another thing, it was the 1st time, when my son first
started modeling, and he was living in Paris, and I went over to see him
in the fashion shows, I hadn’t seen him in a few months, I went to,
he said “Mom go to my apartment and the concierge will give you the key,
and then come to the, wherever the fashion show was. And I went,
the concierge gave me the key and an envelope, and I looked in the
envelope and there was a 500 franc note in there, um, equivalent
to 100 dollars, and I started to cry. The concierge said, “What’s wrong?”
I said “No, you don’t understand, this is the first time my son has ever
given ME money!”
Who’s the funniest person you have ever known?
Frank Giordano (RIP)
You can go anywhere in the world tomorrow, where is that place and why?
The Northern Lights, because it’s a phenomenon I learned about as a child
and, 1st of all the name Aurora Borealis appealed to me, it’s just an amazing
phenomenon and I really want to experience it before…. (laughs)

Well, I can tell you a CD I almost wore out, which is called

carols, in Klezmer style and it’s brilliant! Absolutely brilliant!

(laughs) “We’ll assume”
You can take one person, living or dead, for conversation purposes?
You can take one person, living or dead, for romantic purposes?
What would you like for other people to say about you?
That I made them laugh…and that I was kind.
