From the beginning, I've always loved Deacon. He's one of those characters that goes through a lot of s#!*, and makes some really bad decisions, but you still root for him. You see YOUR soulmate in him.
FINALLY... I got to meet him. In my head, we've already been best friends for a long time, and I told him that. He found it pretty funny. Then I told him my name and he had some difficulty with it so I guess maybe the friendship was one sided... UNTIL TODAY.
He was just as awesome as I've always imagined/hoped. Sounded great, was humble, appreciative, friendly, warm, and funny. I was smitten... and also freaking out.
I only had two minutes with him on selfie-cam, so I had just a few very important things to bring up:
- What he does when he comes home to NoVA
- If he and Chris Carmack have a battle of the DMV territories on set
- How incredible Lennon and Maisey Stella are in real life
Yeah, it's shaky and stuff but like WOULD YOU BE ABLE TO HOLD A CAMERA STILL WHILE TALKING TO YOUR FAVORITE PERSON ON YOUR FAVORITE SHOW?! No. So stfu kthanks.
Here's to a lifelong friendship!
