I had no idea I was the (partial) inspiration for a character in a play. But apparently I was:
I had imagined Tracy Keene, the other character, as being some kind of mixture of Newscoma and Kate O’. I named her after Newscoma, after all. I wanted that kind of brashness coupled with Kate O’s ability to just walk in a room and have everyone in there suddenly convinced she’s someone they need to talk to.
Wow. Am I ever flattered! But then Aunt B goes on to say:
The actor […] was nothing like that […].
Oh well. Fame is so fleeting.
