I met Erin at the Hollywood Celebrities Show. Erin was a great guest. She had a nice selection of 8x10's. When I asked for a picture with her, she responded that pictures were free.
Erin has done other shows, so this was not a rookie mistake. She actually does not charge for pictures with her. That might sound normal, but most celebrities do charge (or they take one with you if you buy something else). I mentioned that to her and she shrugged and we sort of chuckled a bit.
She also went above the call of duty when posing with fans. The arrangement of the tables did not allow quick access to the celebrities. Instead of taking the pictures across her table, Erin made the long walk around to stand next to each fan for the pictures. It was just another reason why the encounter was pleasant.
It was cool meeting her, because I basically grew up watching her and now she is a beautiful woman about my age. Plus, she was as nice as could be. You can follow Erin Murphy on twitter to get all of her updates and to learn where she will be appearing next!
