Meeting Lana Wood
My first meeting of a 007 Lady!!!
If there was ever a performer besides H.M. Wynant I wanted to meet, it was Lana Wood. She had the role of Plenty O'Toole in the 1971 film Diamonds Are Forever, which also starred Jill St. John.
I confess I had anxiety about meeting her, and ended up not doing so until Sunday. I was to attend church services that morning, but was summoned by H.M. Wynant. So I went to the Doubletree instead. As I enter, I see Ms. Wood exiting, and I helped her with the door. She thanked me, and then she had a look that reminded me of my church's choir director. Ironic, since they share the same Russian/Ukrainian heritage!
So, I talked with a vendor when I got to the show, and the next thing I knew, I was dragged over to see her. I was so glad I did so, because she is one fabulous lady, incredibly down to earth! Hence, I had photos taken, as well as a signed autographed picture!
