I was one of only 25 people who attended the TakeHollywood Actor’s Panel held in Venice, California during the evening of February 18, 2015. My friend Jenny and I arrived 3 hours early to make sure we had great seats and we ended up in the front row. When Sasha walked in the door my head levitated off my body. I sat less then 8 ft from her and was completely enthralled by her. Sasha is prettier, younger and very ‘real’ in person. Unlike other actors I’ve met, she didn’t put on airs and was incredibly kind, gracious, smart and charming to all the women who flocked around her (about 95 percent of the people who showed up to the panel were fans of Sasha Alexander). And yes Sasha is actually 5 ft 6 inches tall (my height.)
I asked her why she wasn’t featured more on Rizzoli & Isles and she said she didn’t know and to write the producers, the network, and writers asking to give her more of a storyline.
