In Nashville, it’s pretty easy to see celebrities while doing normal things. For example, I once (physically) ran into Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth in a boutique in Hillsboro Village. Now that there are more TV shows and movies being set in Nashville, the number of celeb sightings has increased.
This weekend, I went to see the Barber of Seville at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center. At the intermission, I went up to go to the bathroom, and as I walked down the row to the exit I realized that there were 2 famous people sitting just a few seats down from me.
|Charles Eston, who stars as Deacon|
|Eric Close, who stars as Teddy|
It took a lot of self control for me to not freak out when I suddenly found myself standing a foot behind Eric Close as he and Charles Eston (also known as the Whose Line Is It Anyway? star Chip) stood up with their wives to go stretch their legs. Running into the cast of Nashville is now a regular component of living in Nashville – I accidentally got into a scene once because I didn’t realize that they were filming – but this was still a pretty great addition to my already excellent trip to the opera.
