However, the "clerk" role never happened, and Kate was placed in that
jammed hallway, with another lady, to stand there to help hide all the
electrical equipment from the view of the cameras...
Kate did rehearse the clerk role, but it never materialized...

Oh, by the way, Kate said that white shirt he was wearing in the cafeteria was tight fitting and custom made...:woot :woot :woot

Kate watched him film in that same hallway, most of the time.
Brian Dennehy was there, and Jason kept walking up and down that
blessed hallway, redoing the takes....Over and over again...YIKES..
After a while, her body no longer needed for blocking purposes, Kate was moved to a corridor where the director, producer and crew where.

Lots of people. Waiting for further instructions.

Extras were asked to walk the hallway, back and forth so it looked
busy, like a work day....

One of the times when Mr Jason passed Kate, he said you are making me
self conscious knowing that you are on the set...He knew he had to give a great performance, cause Kate was there watching him...LOL.

Jason is lighthearted when he's on the set.

At one point many extras were in a jury room, Kate included.
Jason stuck his head in, and said Kate what is going on, and then he was
called back to shoot. Upon leaving, he told Kate she didnt have to stay
in that room, that she could leave and go watch him perform.
Kate did, but then SHE was called back to her duties....back to walking
in that dreaded corridor (not air conditioned)...

A bunch of extras were asked to go in the courtroom, and sit, to be like
the audience, and Kate did.

About 8pm, the extras were done in the courtroom. When she exited,
she saw Jason standing in the corridor, talking to a group of young
people, he turned and said "There she is".....

He came over to Kate, and ushered her into the hallway where the director, producer, crew all were. Jason introduced her to everyone there, saying she was one of the mods for his websites...then Kate asked him if she could give Jason a gift, and he said Yes...so Kate
produced the calendars, which took him by surprise.
He told everyone there, "this is what they do for me, and it all goes
to charity"....Jason was looking through the calendar, and he was
obviously very pleased with what he saw. Then he told Kate he would
sign one calendar for our charity auction and send the other to his Mum.
He asked Kate to send "His" calendar along to his agent in London, since
Kate had only 2 calendars, at the time.

More hugging followed...LOL....

Jason mentioned us as "his girls", and that we travel all over the world
to see him. He did include Kate as being all over the world...LOL.

Kate then hugged him goodbye, while thanking him and telling him how much WE love him and care about him. He smiled, and was hugging
Kate while she was saying those nice things...

Then the director told him to go change, and off he went....
Kate thanked all the crew present in the hallway, while they were all
looking at the calendar, especially Hart Hanson...

Kate tried to find the extras, and she was ushered back to the
extras room...LOL.

They decided the extras were done. Kate's encounter was over....:)

I'm thinking ... not so much.
Remember, this is the same guy who once ran around naked covered in chicken's blood.

BTW, the director seems a really cool guy. Love the shot of him and Jason mugging for the camera.

Thanks for your story, Kate. It's still touching to know he's ever the gentleman.

Oh Marie, I was blown away that he remembered my name and it was in front of so many people....bless this exceptionally sweet man!! You all know how much I adore him and no other actor would give of himself to his fans as much as Jason does with us. And when I spoke to the other extras, some who didn't know him, they were in awe. I guess we have to train these people one by one.

Helen and grannybear, I wish you could have all been there to see him....many:hug :hug for everyone.

Hil, he loved them....showing them to everyone....so proud of them and all that they stand for.:hugs

Thank you wolfsaver, very kind of you to say that...you would be a wonderful representative too!!:hugs
