The 2008 Warner Brothers movie was, in fact, largely filmed in Rodanthe where Linda Molloy lives and works. She got a “Brief but pivotal role” which was the center of the plotline. Her big scene? With Richard Gere!
In this delightful, amusing yet informative presentation, Linda shares with you the movi story, how it came about that shewas in it, and the “behind the scenes”s coop!
