I am a huge fan of tv's Get Smart, even though I first came upon it in rerun form. Feldon was adorable in that show. I think she was vastly underrated among other more publicized actresses of that era.
When I saw she was going to be at the Hollywood Celebrities Show, I had to meet her. She was very sweet to everyone at the show and she looked great. It was a very nice experience.
On the way home, I kept thinking of how great Feldon looked. If she had some "helpful" surgeries, it all seemed natural. At least she did not overdo anything.
When I got home, I went online and looked for Feldon. I came across two different birth dates, which put her at 79 or 80. 79 or 80!
That does not look like a woman that old. Some might say I look older than Feldon (although I would have to block you from this site if you did).
Sometimes I meet old favorites and they look..well, they look old and different. It is not good or bad. It is just a fact. Feldon, on the other hand, really looked like a slightly older version of Agent 99. Meeting Feldon was like stepping back in time.
