Is anyone else out there a fan of Anne of Green Gables? I sure am! I love this story and have a secret wish to visit Prince Edward Island and soak up all things Anne. I bought this edition of the book when I first arrived here in San Diego. It was on sale at Barnes and Noble. I’ve watched the made for television version many, many times. Such beautiful cinematography, such wonderful acting by all of the cast.
A few years back, when I was working here full-time, I coached a production of “The Seagull.” I love Chekhov so I was certainly looking forward to the coaching process. What sent me over the edge, though, was the chance to work with Megan Follows. She was cast as one of the leads and all I could think was “I get to work with Anne!” I’m glad to say she was delightful, a wonderful actress and lovely to work with. After the obligatory “Anne of Green Gables” conversation, I asked her if she ever got tired of people talking to her about it. After all, she did it years ago and now she was an adult with children. She said that she never did and she was proud of being part of such a wonderful production.
I’m looking forward to reading the book again, and watching the DVD. What a nice way to while away my time here.
