My feet hurt, my back hurts, and my throat is hoarse!! It was such a fun night. There were six of us Frocktalk reporters roaming the event, and we interviewed so many people. Look forward, in the week ahead, to interviews with Audrey Fisher (True Blood), Mona May (Enchanted), George Mitchell (The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson), April Ferry (Rome), Monique Prudhomme (The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus), Hope Hanafin (500 Days of Summer) and many, many more!
We will be posting pictures and interviews tomorrow and in the week ahead. It was a brilliant, awesome night, and big thanks to Shirley Wilson at FIDM for getting all of us in. It was an amazing event, and we all learned so much!!! Thank you!!!!
