Cindy Pickett was also appearing at the Chiller Theatre Expo in April, and she is one actress I definitely wanted to meet. I remember her from the 1986 feature film "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" in which she played the mother to Matthew Broderick's title character, and from the late 1980s tv ensemble series "St. Elsewhere", which she joined in the 3rd season as 'Dr. Carol Novino'.
Ms. Pickett was cordial and welcomed the opportunity to meet her fans. I had a pleasant chat with her about "St. Elsewhere". She said it was very exhausting work, but a lot of fun too.
She, too, was in the tent behind the hotel, and when I asked if she'd pose for a photo with me, she quickly obliged. Here is the photo.
And here is the portrait photo she signed for me, for the very reasonable fee of $20.
