A while back ago I ran into an actress who's work I have watched for a few years now and have highly admired. She's young, talented, beautiful and could have easily fell into the types of roles that young and beautiful women are offered. BUT, she's talented AND smart. She took the road that wasn't obvious and made interesting choices, even if they weren't in the biggest box office hits--those came along as well, but again...interesting choices.
I had the good fortune to speak with her for a bit about all things design (since she was asking) and left feeling a bit giddy about the whole meeting. A friend of mine reminded me that, "You never get star struck---what up with the goofy, glassy-eyed look over this actress?" Well, I realized that yes, the whole "star-struck" thing isn't really my gig but talent-struck, that's a whole other tasty bit.
I am a buffoon for talent. All kinds of talent. When I see it, hear it, taste it, read it or witness it I am instantly drawn towards the talent and the individual possessing it. Also, I don't want to get too close since I feel like I'm just going to babble like...well, a buffoon. Which is exactly what I did with said actress.
That being said, enjoy the talent and beauty of JULIAN CHICHESTER'S contemporary English Furniture.
