Friendly Encounters is a weekly series featuring friends who have met celebrities.
Pamela Jayne Soles, better known as PJ Soles, first crossed my radar with her appearance in Carrie. Shortly after, I saw her in The Boy in the Plastic Bubble. In the next few years, I saw PJ in Halloween, Rock 'N' Roll High School, Stripes and Private Benjamin. By this point I was hooked.
I was so excited many years later when I got to meet PJ at a convention. Since then, I have had the pleasure of meeting her many times.
Some of the best times I have had with PJ have happened at Days of the Dead. PJ is always in a good mood, even when she had laryngitis at the last Days event. Days lends itself to a lot of interaction with the celebrities and PJ is great with her fans. Cuzz Gekas and I have been at every Days of the Dead in Indianapolis and we agree that PJ is one of our favorite guests ever.
The next Days event is in Schaumburg (Chicago) from November 20-22.
Cuzz Gekas and me in Indianapolis, IN-June 2015.
