A young Drumheller girl had a brush with her Hollywood idol who was in town filming Ghostbusters.
Bailey Waters, 15, was excited to learn that McKenna Grace was in Drumheller filming. On Thursday, August 15, Bailey, who is autistic, headed downtown and waited patiently for two hours to meet Ms. Grace.
A person involved in the production told Grace about Bailey, that she had drawn a picture and had a Ghostbuster car for her.
Bailey’s mother, Bonita, said Grace found them and spent a half-hour chatting with Bailey.
“She told Bailey she will treasure the picture Bailey drew and meeting Bailey. McKenna was so friendly despite her busy filming schedule,” said Bonita.
Later in the day, Grace showed her appreciation by posting an image of the hand-drawn poster and car on her Instagram thanking Bailey.
