It happened when Kevin Spacey was director of the Old Vic. A very close friend of mine was a sponsor of the Old Vic. She was invited to a special dinner for all the people and companies who sponsor the theatre. She was not sure if she wanted to go because she had to go on her own, but luckily she decided to join the party. She did not know any one there so she sit on her own at the table. Kevin Spacey saw her sitting on her own and went to her and join her at the table; he kept her company for the whole evening. She was amazed how kind polite, truly sincere and lovely he was. Every time I think about that story puts the smile back on my face!
