On the Beat with Lauren Holly at Wizard World 2012

Lauren Holly instantly became a celebrity crush of mine when she appeared on tv's All My Children.  That crush is still ongoing.  Lauren is definitely on my Mount Rushmore of crushes (but I'll save that for another time).
When Contributor Extraordinaire Matt Parker and I became official video bloggers for Wizard World, I set my sights on interviewing Lauren.  I have been lucky enough to interview many of my favorites and I knew that this would be my best shot at interviewing Lauren.
I endured a handful of obstacles along the way to actually interviewing Lauren, including being blocked by Luke Perry (more on that in a future post) but I eventually got my chance to sit next to Lauren and interview her.  Many thanks to Matt for his perseverance and logistical maneuvering.
Lauren was pleasant, funny and beautiful.  She even apologized for the delays.  We talked about her time on All My Children, her favorite role, her current project and more.  She was a pure delight and an easy interview.  I floated away when the interview ended.
People ask me why I do  This is why.  I interviewed Lauren Holly!  Not only is Lauren arguably the biggest celebrity I have ever interviewed, more importantly she is one of my favorites.
I really appreciate Lauren for doing the interview, despite being very busy at the convention.  I thank PR Director Jerry Milani.  I also thank Matt for helping me get this done.
After you watch the interview, you can follow her on twitter @laurenholly.  Right now, she does not have a website, but I believe one is on the way and I am sure she will announce it on twitter.
