I'm always doing a hundred things at once...if only I had put my blackberry down for one minute, I would have seen her sooner (I also would have less of a chance of getting run over by a cab on Third Avenue) and I could have taken my camera out in time to take her photo. She has the sweetest smile. I smiled back at her and said "good luck" - I have no idea why I said that. She doesn't need my luck wishing. But, oh well. A simple "hi" would have sufficed. In any event, I walked past the crew and pulled out my camera (since I always carry it) but the director yelled "action!" and she was in character haphazardly running around the corner as Betty. All I was able to get was a photo of a paparazzi stalking her. I waited for about 10 minutes to see if she would come back and do another take but she didn't. So, I continued on my way to the R train.
Perhaps I will run in to her in Jackson Heights, where I work and where Ugly Betty's family lives and where I've heard they've been taping a lot lately (although I haven't seen myself).
Hasta pronto, Betty! Sera la proxima vez.
