Um….Do you remember Alex Mack?
She was the star of her own Nickolodeon show in I want to say the early to mid nineties. She was a teenage girl who had been accidentally mauled by nuclear waste – rendering her cursed – with SUPER POWERS ranging from zapping things to disappearing to turning into water! Memory jogged? I used to watch this show. A lot. It’s all coming back to me. I think it was while babysitting. But she was smart, the Alex Mack. She was cute and over-alled and and smart. She was, well, and is –
Later in life, you’ll recall she was featured in the film of the Babysitters Club (only the Best Movie Ever, and the answer to all of my elementary prayers/ seriously I was so obsessed with these books) – playing Dawn, the loveable hippie.
Also, she was of 10 Things I Hate about You, which I know you liked. Don’t pretend. And she was flipping adorable in it.
Point being – this just in – She’s going to be a movie version of my short play, I Have it, being filmed in LA next month, and I beside myself with nostalgia and joy.
I like to think that everyone googles themselves – in which case, Larisa you are so reading this. In which case, three things: 1.) Thanks!! 2.) Awesome. 3.) We are going to be friends.
You just wait.
