Last night James Cromwell won the Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Movie for his work in American Horror Story. I had a chance to take some headshots of Mr Cromwell back in August when he was in Chicago filming a television show.
During the short time I spent with him I could tell he was a kind and down-to-earth person. But he really demonstrated his generous nature during his Emmy acceptance speech when he made sure to thank my friend (and his assistant for over 10 years) Johanna Shapiro. Johanna works her butt off, and it was a well deserved moment for her. You can see it on YouTube below
Congratulations, Johanna. And in related news, I’m going to try to work “indefatigable” into my normal daily conversation.
