Back in the days, when I spent my afternoons watching Xena: The Warrior Princess on TV, Ted Raimi quickly became one of my favorite actors. The man tends to make plenty of cameos in what most would consider geek related television shows and movies– and I would always squeal with pure nerd joy whenever I see him on the screen. In my opinion, he is one of those great actors who flies under the radar of most people.
That’s why when I met him at Wizard World Anaheim, it was probably the happiest moment of my geek lifetime. He was so wonderful as I prattled on about how much I love and enjoy his work. There was so much more I wished I could have said to him! Hopefully, my nonsensical fangirling communicated how much I truly appreciate him as an actor.
Thanks for the kiss on the cheek, Ted! It was truly a shining moment for this little girl’s heart!
