Lights. Camera. Action. Berlin Sheets has been waiting for this star-studded day for months. He says, "I haven't been this excited since I was about 12 (when) I got to see Dolly Parton for the first time." But today it was all about JR, Sue Ellen, Bobby, etc. The cast of the tv soap opera Dallas, which started in 1978, gathered at Southfork, for a 30-year cast reunion.
Mike Pingel says, "Hat, $20. This, priceless." Well, maybe. But Mike Pingel and dozens of others shelled out a thousand dollars a pop for a personal photo op. The crowd included Louisiana's Taylor Romero, who scrounged for the money from every friend and family member she could find. Romero says, "I have been a fan of Dallas since I was a little girl with my grandmother, and she died a year ago. So this is really special." So, too, for Ruy Cardoso, who hopped a 15 hour flight from Brazil. "It's a dream come true. It's wonderful."
Victoria Principal walked the red carpet on their way into the famed homestead of the Ewing clan. Cast member, Linda "Sue Ellen Ewing" Gray said today was a blast. Gray says, "The good thing for me is that we've known each other and loved each other for 30 years." Patrick "Bobby Ewing" Duffy says, ''It's terrific. It's a little surreal. I'm just glad there are at least this many people that watched the show, or at least their mothers did."
And that as they say in Hollywood and in Dallas is a happy ending and a wrap.
