Back in the 6th grade, I was in love with a young man named Devon Sawa.
Now and Then
He was like a step below Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Jonathan Brandis. However, he was #1 in my little 11 year old heart (well.... #2.... Justin of MMC was #1...).
Friday (5/1), I was at the station very early and this good-looking guy came to the side door. I let him in (he was there for an interview... most come in that way). Melissa came running into the studio I was in to talk about the cute boy who was gracing our halls (we don't get a lot of them, obviously).
She told me he was one of the actors in the film that's currently shooting in town. I asked which one and she said, "Devon Sawa."
SERIOUSLY?!?! Hello, I used to read all about his favorite flavor of ice cream in Tiger Beat and Bop! I giggled over his bare booty scene in Now and Then.
He was super nice. He went on two stations, talking about the film, etc.
Granted, he's like D-List now and I hadn't thought about him in about 14 years. That's not the point. The point is.... when I was 11, I desperately wanted to meet him. And, I eventually did, lol.
This picture does him no justice, at all. I, of course, hadn't put on make-up, yet.
