Lauren Storm - March 9, 2007
Here are some of the highlights from
Tommy: Now I understand
you just got back from shooting the final episode of Flight
29 Down. We'll get to that in a few, but first lets
go over some easy questions. When it comes to flying what's
the one carry on item that's a must.
Lauren Storm: I'd probably
say a good book is really important for those flights
that I can't get to sleep.
Tommy: What's worst the
take off or the landing?
Lauren Storm: Ooh...
um take off!
Tommy: Now ruling out
first class, where's the best place to sit. The front
the back the aisle or the window?
Lauren Storm: Window,
then you can just conk out!
Tommy: And of course
where's your favorite destination to go?
Lauren Storm: Oh god,
I'd have to say Hawaii, I've been going there for years
even before the show. It's just like a second home, it
brings happiness just by being there.
Tommy: As I said you
just got back from shooting the final episode although
for those in the US we're waiting to find out and get
to the end of episode two, what are we in for?
Lauren Storm: Ooh, well
I don't want to spoil anything but I can tell you this.
We are not like Lost, people don't die. Nobody dies, it's
a brilliant ending it's very emotional on and off set
for us. I mean the way everyone comes back together, the
way DJ our writer did it was just brilliant. He's so good,
I mean we love him so much but when they final said and
that's a wrap for Lauren Storm for the series I was basket
case. I thought Allen would be the one who would cry because
you know he's going to be eleven now but when he started
with us he was just turning nine. So that's important
years of your life like, it was important years in my
life but he's so little and I'm like it's okay I'm going
to comfort Allen, it's going to be fine. Nope! I was just
balling it was awful and Allen comes up to me, he's like
it's okay Lauren. I'm like this is a strange turn of events.
Tommy: In addition to
your acting you're also on the board of directors with
Kids With A Cause. Why don't you tell us about
the charity on how you got involved.
Lauren Storm: Well actually
I am no longer on the board. It kinda goes in six month
cycles so I've been on and off for the past eight years.
But I'm still a part of it. Kids With A Cause
is a great organization where you have a bunch of performers.
Child performers, child actors and singers that people
see on TV and it really makes people listen a little bit
more when talk about fund raising and charities and people
in need. And we lend our time and we go things and spend
time with people who don't have very much. Or we send
a message. And in addition to Kids With A Cause
I work with the Los Angeles Mission, I work with
Project Angelfood, Starlight Starbright Foundation.
I try and do as much as I can in terms of giving my time
when I have it cause it's like I get to live this life
going new places, meeting new people and as hard as it
is I mean I get an opportunity that a lot of people don't
get to have so when I can do something and lend my time
and make people happier or send a message and more people
will see because I'm on TV. I mean, that's so key and
I think everyone should keep that when there in a position
like mine or definitely a position above mine. I mean
you gotta give back I've been lucky enough to get so much
that I have to give back. I don't know what I would do
if I didn't give back so um, all those I mean any organization
that's willing to lend time and really help people is
so important and so great.
