I always love it when Anushika writes in! We miss her around these parts! She doesn’t get out much lately so you know it has to be a special event for her to Fanboy it up. She loves her NCIS. And when I say loves… I mean LOVES that show!
So, when Mark Harmon was going to get his star on the Walk of Fame, well Anushika had to be there. I’m not going to delay her awesome recap so check it out below and all of her Awesome Photos!
I was fortunate enough to have one of the most AWESOME encounters with Pauley Perrette aka Abby Sciuto from NCIS last year. After I got her to sign a cast shot for me, I remember looking at it and thinking how I might never get to actually complete it. Little did I know about what was waiting for me this year. Thanks to work, I don’t get to go out much. I even refrain from looking up events so I won’t feel all sad about not being able to go.
It was a lazy Sunday and I thought I should check out what was going on in Hollywood. To my surprise I find out that Mark Harmon, none other than Gibbs himself is having his Walk of Fame Star Ceremony the next day. OMG!!!!!! This is a MUST!!!!! I’m a HUGE NCIS Fan. I absolutely LOVE all the character and pretty much everything about it! =D I knew this might be my chance to finally meet Mark Harmon. I’ve seen him twice before, but he is really hard to catch as he is not too fond of crowds. Since this is an event dedicated for him, I knew he won’t be able to get away that easily. lol…
I arrived at the location to see a small crowd gathered near the set up. I scout around and see couple of the familiar friendly faces. After setting down, we were all trying to figure out who would show up from the cast. Who knows, if we are lucky enough maybe the whole cast might show up. As the clock ticks, the sun burns down on us with no mercy. I feel like I’m melting. x_X
David McCallum who plays the adorable Dr.Mallard shows up first on scene.
The crowd starts calling out for him and he hesitates to come up to us. Finally he told us that he will come after the ceremony.
After another 15 minutes or so passes by, the place gets pretty packed with all the guests. They kept playing the NCIS theme song over and over and over again. The wait is killing me!!!!
Finally we start seeing some of the cast slowly walking towards the set up. I see Sean Murray (McGee), Cote de Pablo (Ziva), Pauley Perrette (Abby), Michael Weatherly (Tony), Rocky Carroll (Director Vance), Brian Dietzen (Palmer) and at last but certainly NOT least, Mark Harmon (Gibbs).
O….M….G…..My head starts spinning!!!! lol…They are ALL here!!!! I mean EVERYONE!!!! =D
I’m doing cartwheels in my head. I’m SO stoked to see the entire cast right in front of me. The fans started cheering and going completely nuts!!! Cote, Sean, Rocky, and Michael came straight to us and started signing autographs and talking to the fans.
Since the ceremony was about to start, they had to take their seats.
It was a nice quick ceremony and Mark started his speech by thanking all his fans for all the support.
Yay!!! ^_^ After the speech, the star was finally unveiled and they pronounced the day to be Mark Harmon Day in Hollywood! WOOT WOOT!
The whole cast was extremely nice. They were all talking to fans, doing pictures and autographs. Everyone was being beyond AWESOME! =D
Each one kept thanking us for coming and supporting. I managed to get EVERYONE on my cast shot. I still can’t believe that happened. I mean….it’s firkin AMAZING!!!
Mark Harmon was probably the hardest one since he had only a limited amount of time left since the press took most of his time doing interviews after the ceremony.
I brought my Chemistry Lab glasses with me hoping to get them signed by Pauley.
She is the coolest Lab Geek I know, so it was the perfect thing. I know…Dork Alert! She was more than happy to sign them for me. She was like “But you won’t be able to see” lol…
Hands down, one of the BEST Star Ceremonies EVER!!! ^_^ I was all giddy and was trying to digest everything that happened…I think I was practically skipping home. Hoping for many encounters in the future. The NCIS cast it totally one of the nicest casts out there.
Check out all of Anushika’s photos from the ceremony below!
