Owensboro Woman Meets Kevin Costner at Orlando Conference
When Kathie Wolfe headed off to Orlando for a work conference, she likely had no idea this was going to happen. But, thanks to perfect timing and the kindness of a stranger, she was able to get her photo taken with Academy Award-winning director/actor Kevin Costner!
Kathie works for U.S. Bank and was in Orlando for a national conference presented by Black Knight Financial Services. And, by chance (and luck), Kevin Costner was featured as a guest speaker at event and Kathie happened to run into him at her hotel.
According to Kathie, "As I returning to my hotel room, he was finishing a meet and greet on the same floor. As he walked down the hall towards the elevator, I asked if I could take his pic. He said, "No" but pointed to a gentleman who would take our pic TOGETHER!"
And the pic is nearly perfect! As you can see, Kathie was loving every minute of it. In her words, "Total school girl swoon moment!!!!"
Costner is a two-time Academy Award winner. His film Dancing with Wolves won Best Picture in 1990 and he won Best Director the same year. He also won 2013 Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Awards for Best Actor in a Miniseries for his role in Hatfields and McCoys.
Of course, in addition to Dances with Wolves, Costner has starred in such iconic films as Bull Durham, Field of Dreams, The Bodyguard and JFK.
