|Christina Ricci & Mr. Will-W.|
Acclaimed Actress Christina Ricci might be quiet of late, but you can expect that to change in the Fall. Ricci has landed the plum role of Maggie on upcoming ABC series Pan Am, set in the ‘60s. Based on the exciting stories of some Flight Attendants and Pilots for the then-thriving Airline, the Drama Series has been picked-up by CTV here in Canada, as announced yesterday at their 2011 Fall Upfronts. Co-stars Karine Vanasse (from Quebec), Kelli Garner and Margot Robbie also made appearances.
The pint-sized Actress flew into Toronto from Los Angeles to promote the hotly-tipped Series before a group of Advertising Executives and Media at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts yesterday. Known for being a bit Fan-shy, Ricci originally had denied me a Photo together, but then changed her mind quickly. “Oh, alright! You came all this way to meet me, but I came 5 hours to meet you!”, she said before giggling and signing my DVD of 2003’s Monster.
Ricci also can be seen this September alongside Robert Pattinson in Bel Ami, a French Historical Drama.
