Have you ever been star-struck? After living in Los Angeles for many years, I got used to working with celebrities, but before that I was just a young, inexperienced college intern knocking on the dressing room door of an Academy Award winning actor. Known for portraying larger-than-life roles like Moses and Ben Hur, Charlton Heston […]
