: Missed adding this to the thread yesterday. This is a true story,
: as far as I know, as a good friend of mine talked to the lady
: involved. When DD-L was filming The Crucible in Ipswich, MA
: he was often seen around town. One time he was parked at
: the local gas station, getting gas for his motorcycle, and a
: lady who owns a store in town recognized him and ran over
: to talk to him. She told him she adored him, but she thought
: Newland Archer was the biggest wimp in the entire world!
: Apparently he thought that was hysterically funny, burst
: out laughing, and ended up giving her a big hug. Filthy tramp!
: Some people have all the luck!
...And she didn't hop on his bike and say take me home, you hunk!!!?? :)
Seriously, DDL seems to be a nice person off camera too which you don't find too often with most celebrities. One person on her website (I can't think of her name) actually flew to Ireland on a chance and met him. I read where another person met him exiting a store or building and asked how his son was. He smiled and said the child was doing well.
