"The highlight of the evening for me was meeting actress Daniela Ruah from the TV program “NCIS: Los Angeles”. The sun was going down rapidly as I noticed this extremely attractive young lady walk in front of me. I thought to myself that she sure looked like Daniela. As I don’t mind speaking to strangers, I thought I would go check this out.
My “hook” to start a conversation was that a number of years before I had seen the actor Eric Christian Olsen, her partner on the show, at Music on Main with his girlfriend actress Sarah Wright. Well it turns out that the reason Daniela was in Teton Valley was to attend Eric & Sarah’s wedding the previous weekend. In fact Daniela was there that night with Eric’s parents and she introduced me to them. It seems that Eric’s parents bought an old barn in 2007 which they had converted to living space.”
