I've seen where Star Trek was filmed 
18th-Jan-2011 01:18 am
In a moment of total nerddom mixed with Hollywood-jadedness, I was reading the Star Trek encyclopedia Memory Alpha when I realized that I've been on the stages where they filmed Star Trek TNG. It was primarily filmed at Paramount Studios in Hollywood, CA. It was at the old main studio on Melrose Ave and Gower Ave, made famous by the scene in the movie Sunset Boulevard when Gloria Swanson drives up to studio gates. That's Paramount Studios. 

I was shooting NCIS: Los Angeles (playing the under-utilized, background role of office assistant) in an episode that takes place in their offices. And it was on stage 8 and 9 (adjoining) stages at Paramount where Star Trek was filmed.

To think, I hung around on the stages where Patrick Stewart used to act. While snaking at "crafty" on set,  I spilled Reese's Pieces on LL Cool J's foot that day and he picked them up, totally, cool about it. But more absurdly, it was located where one of my favorite shows was filmed. Wow. I hope I get to return to Paramount some day soon as more than just background. Also, it's a true story. LL Cool J is known by all the extras to be one of the nicest guys in Hollywood. 

Sometimes, behind all the organic spray tan lotion and silicon implants, Hollywood is still magical.

Reading this makes me miss you so much, dear. I'm so glad you're living the life you want for yourself, and having such a blast. :)

We should collaborate on a story sometime if you ever have the time!

I miss you so much dear. How's it going back in West Virgina/PA? Are you off to grad school already?

I'm having a blast in West Hollywood and you definitely need to come visit sometime soon.

I loved X-Men First class and started writing a short Eric/Raven story. I'll need your help and motivation to finish it.
