My night on the Red Carpet was one simple word AMAZING! Here’s how the night went.
I arrived a bit early about 15 minutes as I wasn’t really sure where I was going. The teens were already lining the carpet. It was pure craziness there. I was escorted to the press room. Hearing them all ask where I was going. Hello Camera bag and video camera. I met with another reporter. She was a total sweetheart. She works for the Daniel Island news. We had a few minutes to talk with Braeden Reed before he was escorted downstairs to the Cocktail Party.
He was the cutest kid and immediately won my heart. He sat down and was playing connect four on the Nintendo DS. He was so excited to share his movie debuted with his classmates that were attending. I was really impressed with his composure with a high stress area. His parents stated that he hadn’t talked until age 36 months. They were just praying for a yes or a no. They could work with that. That is so very true. He used signs and pictures. He is just really a sweet boy. The family looked Fantastic.
When it was time they announced who was coming down, first were Braeden and his family. They answered all the questions. They did have his therapist with him and she was so sweet with the family.
Next down the line was the director who was Lasse Hallstrom and his daughter Tora. He answered questions about working with Braeden the common response was the kids is a chess whiz.
After that they did a cast photo. Channing and Amanda were as excited to see Braeden as he was to see them. It was so cute. He did his photos and was escorted downstairs to do the red carpet outside.
Next down the line was Channing Tatum. He is the most down to earth and humble star I have ever met. He talked about growing up in Alabama and Florida. He loved Folly Beach. He would have really liked Isles of the Plams. He said he really enjoyed working with this cast. This was one of the best roles he has played. For the record he has played a solider in 3 movies. He looked so handsome and his wife was absolutely beautiful. He admitted that his wife dresses him for the events. He also wouldn’t allow management run him out. He made sure to answer everyone’s question. Kudos to him.
Amanda was the last one down. She looked stunning. She was so timid and quite. She was just the sweetest with Braeden. On our end we were only able to get photos as her manager was shoving her down the line. She has a new movie coming out this year too called Chole. Said to be another great movie.
