Now all she needs to do is assault the cast, and she'll be in SAG in no time.
When 26-year-old Australian Kate Robertson was on vacation in NYC, she decided to drop in at a location where her beloved Gossip Girl was being filmed -- and when we say "drop in," we mean it. As the story goes, Robertson snuck into the nearby Waldorf Astoria hotel, telling the staff that she had reservations at the restaurant within. But instead of eating turtle soup or whatever they do in fancy places, she wandered the halls and took an elevator down to the ballroom, where Gossip Girl happened to be shooting.
"I just couldn't believe that I had gotten that far without anyone noticing," Robertson later admitted. "I sat down and I just waited for someone to tell me to leave." But instead of being told to leave, Robertson was dragged onto the ballroom floor an inch away from the main cast. She then had a glass of champagne shoved into her hand, got her hair done by a stylist, and was told to blend in. And before she could open her mouth and admit that she was a tourist and not a SAG-AFTRA licensed background actor, the cameras started rolling and Robertson spent the next six hours pretending to be a guest in a glamorous party sequence.
