Starfish Fourth International Fundraiser
Castellarquato (Italy) - September 5-6, 2003

Dear Friends,

Although I was in the middle of shooting "Never Enough", I had made up my mind. As most of you already know, I was just getting dressed that morning to go to the airport. Tickets and everything were arranged. My director had even given me one extra day off. I was to fly from Bucharest to Milano to attend and open the St*rfish Charity event. I was honestly looking forward to this small and heartfelt initiative from the village of Castellarquato to support St*rfish this way. Well... that morning my back went out terribly and I could not move, let alone travel. Of course my presence was deeply missed by fans and other people who were hoping to see me. I hope I will be better next time.


The medieval dinner on September 5 has been a marvellously set-up event, attended also by some international journalists, and the screening of 'Ladyhawke' on September 6 was in progress while at the very same time this film was also being aired on one of the main Italian TV channels. All this unexpected publicity turned out to be more than we were hoping for.
