Call Me Dean

Some stars love the attention, love the fame, but others seek escape from all the glory when they return to a normal day of life. Which kind was he?

The room was jam-packed. Whispers of anticipation rose high in the air. Visions and life waited to enter across the silver screen of the director's cut. I stood to the side, trying to catch a glimpse of its light, and then I saw him.

"Dean Winters":http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0935921/ was once like everyone else. He had taken an ordinary job and lived a regular life--but then opportunity found him. And he took flight, racing across that sea of dreams and enveloping the screen with the depth of his heart and soul.

But do I dare approach him?

Some stars love the attention, love the fame, but others seek escape from all the glory when they return to a normal day of life. Which kind was he?

Gathering up my courage, I took a step closer to him. He turned and gave me that charming smile. I tried to think of something to say, but all I could muster was, "Mr. Winters, I liked you in _Rescue Me."_

My response was a laugh, and he said, "Please, call me Dean." And that was my highlight of that night.
