Leni Chat Transcript
October 2001

Leni's arrival in the chat room was greeted by many rounds of hello's and well wishes.

LeniP: Hi everybody. Are you still there? Sorry I'm late. Big hugs to everybody.

RoHa: Hi Leni. . .we were about to send out a search party.

LeniP: You know my parting gift from the show was my chair. I'm sorry I declined it. I would be sitting on it now with my big taelon butt.

Rayjay: Is there any way you can scrounge it? or is it totally gone now?

Taelon_Tova: Yes Leni, I read about that chair you wouldn't take!

LeniP: I am well...in Montreal for an audition for a sci-fi series.

ColetteNKaytai: Make a great computer chair.

(All present wished Leni luck on her recent audition.)

Agent_Sky: They should have given you the whole embassy set, Leni!

Blacktuesday: Not exactly a portable chair for informal events.

kirosi: I wonder who created it.

LeniP: The chair is scrapped now. It weighs about 20 tons.

Taelon_Tova: Leni...How is your Mo'om?

PsychoTaelonFemale: 20 tons?? Dang...

Ja`en: Cool, a scifi series!

Daans_Consort: What is it called??

LeniP: It's so nice to see some familiar names. I'm thinking about you all lately, now that I have finished the show. Da'an's consort: it's called 'Galidor'.

Daans_Consort: Kool! Thanks, Leni.

Rayjay: Leni, Is Galidor only for the Canadian market? or will the US get it?

LeniP: It's pretty slow in the acting business right now. I am filling my time working on my house and playing with my cats.

Taelon_Tova: Leni, is your Mo'om here with you now? if yes, Hello Mo'om!

Agent_Sky: I love cats :-)

Daans_Consort: How are they, Leni?

Daem8: I love cats, too :)

coolguy: I have 4.

Ja`en: Ah, cats are great :)

ColetteNKaytai: I have 10.

Daans_Consort: I have 3.

Agent_Sky: I've seen Von's cats in a photo last week.

LeniP: I'll keep you posted on Galidor. Hello to everybody from Mo'om. Special hello to Roha.

hhpat: I have three.

Ja`en: Wow, 10!

Roel: I love you, Leni.

PsychoTaelonFemale: I took a stray kitten and I couldn't help but think of you Leni!

LeniP: I have three cats now. Lemon Cello is my new addition.

(RoHa and everyone sent warm greetings to Mo'om.)

Daans_Consort: A kitten?

ColetteNKaytai: Yes, 10 - all over computer desk and monitor.

Daem8: How sweet!

muriel: Leni, how's your theatre group going?

Agent_Sky: And how are you doing without that 'torture' of putting the mask on?

LeniP: He was a stray. My ninth rescue and I had to keep him. Muriel, I will be teaching a group of kid's audition and resume class this fall for a friend who runs a Shakespeare kid's camp.

Daans_Consort: Leni, how's your back??

kirosi: Any special news from PETA?

LeniP: Sky, I love not being in the makeup. I have to be honest. It was killing me. I wish there were two of me. one Da'an and one Leni

Roel: Do you love Shakespeare Leni?

Daans_Consort: lol, that would be kool.

kirosi: Both are wonderful.

Agent_Sky: I wish you could have played yourself on the show as well. Maybe in the resistance?

LeniP: Kirosi, no news from PETA. Every things pretty quiet now. My back is great.

Daans_Consort: I love Da'an!!!!

Roel: I love Da'an and Leni.

Daem8: Glad to hear it.

kirosi: Glad you are comfortable!

Ja`en: I think we all love Da'an :)

ihtan: Roel: Me too.

LeniP: I do love Shakespeare. I'm getting back into it. UK companion, how's that cake coming?

LeniP: Any questions you guys are dying to know about regarding the show?

Agent_Sky: Well, without spoilers?

Daans_Consort: Your new one, yes!!

kaworu1981: Yeah, will you be on it again?

Roel: That's great, Leni. Is there a special character you'd like to play (Shakespeare?)

kaworu1981: E:FC, I mean =)

LeniP: Roel, I auditioned for Lady Macbeth. Didn't get it. But I still have a few years.

LeniP: Jo'on, what personal business? Please tell us. LOL

Taelon_Tova: That's too bad, Leni. I could just see you as Lady MacBeth!

Roel: You have a life - you'd be a great Lady Macbeth.

LeniP: Tova, Lady Macbeth is one of my favorites as well.

Ja`en: Leni, would be lovely as Lady Macbeth.

Anca: Leni, will you be in Germany one time again?

Daans_Consort: Yes!! Lady Leni.

ijsselmeer: Lady Macbeth wasn't a lovely person in my recollectiom.

UKCompanion: And I'm sorry, but I don't kiss and tell.

Agent_Sky: Yes, in Germany! I would love to meet you!

ihtan: I'd like to see her playing Lady Macbeth. It would be great.

Taelon_Tova: Leni, maybe next time around!

LeniP: I do have the nicest fans in the world, not to mention the coolest!

Katana_UK: LOL! Em, you don't want to know what Jo'on was up to ;-)

kirosi: Don't take this the wrong way but.. Zo'or...

muriel: Leni, will you ever play in Europe? Is there any way to get you here??

Roel: And you could have gotten people mad with your hands; playing in her last scene!

LeniP: Lady Macbeth is everything. She embodies so many emotions.

[Daans_Consort] Yes, Leni when are you going to come to Newcastle instead of London?

LeniP: I am having problems seeing all the questions. So be patient.

Taelon_Tova: I love Shakespeare!

kirosi: I could see Leni as Galadriel.

Roel: Why do you think of her? Was not Shakespeare incredible in writing this charactert?

LeniP: A psychic told me I'll be going to Europe soon, specifically London, Germany and Italy.

ihtan: I read Macbeth some years ago. I liked it very much.

Roel: ITALY!

Daans_Consort: Aw!! No Newcastle then?

kaworu1981: Macbeth is good.

LeniP: Kirosi, do you mean from King Lear?

KNera: Ro'el... you lucky girl!!!

Roel: I'll wait for you ...

UKCompanion: What about Southampton? ;-)

ihtan: Italy? Oh yes!!! :)

Taelon_Tova: Leni, will you EVER come to Geneva?

KNera: I think I'll have to pay you a visit!

kirosi: sorry.. Lord of the Rings.

Daem8: Lucky, Ro'el!

Daans_Consort: I'll have to go to London then. LOL

muriel: Great, Leni! Come to the Netherlands once!!

LeniP: Maybe we should do the Da'an farewell tour.

LeniP: KNera, what corner?

LeniP: I'll take questions.

LeniP: It all started in a small town in New Brunswick. My parents would play chess by the fire. I kid you not. I just read an old letter of my mom's from when I was a baby.

Rayjay: [whirls on Leni with an evil grin] Will you please, PLEASE, tell me what "L'ecole des Bouffons" was about? I can't find any information about it other than one-line overviews and a picture here or there, and it's been plaguing me for years and-- oh, sorry. [Let's go of your lapels]

LeniP: Rayjay, flattening lapels, smoothing back hair, "it was a play written in Belgium about a school for bouffons. And I played one of the students. Buoffon has a great history in Europe. They are like nasty clowns. I only have one photo from it. I performed it in 1995.

Rayjay: There is another photo of you on the diving horse site.. the costumes are grotesque.. I Love it!

ColetteNKaytai: Leni, Hi, Colette here - How are your kitties? All well? I have 10 and they are all doing great, watching the chat :)

LeniP: Colette, Hi! My kitties are all fine. How are you? I'd have 10 if I could someday.

LeniP: Rayjay. You could look up bouffon history through Diving Horse Creations.

PsychoTaelonFemale: Hi, Leni! My name is An'gel... I wrote a poem about the ending of EFC but the beginning of more for both you and Anita.. Do you want me to send it to you?

LeniP: Psycho Taelon, send it through the fan club to Ro. I'd love to read it.

PsychoTaelonFemale: Yay! *hugs Leni*.. I hope you like it!

Taelon_Tova: Leni, will you ever be coming over to Geneva any day soon?

LeniP: I have a funny story. Maybe it's gross to some of you. I took Laddie to the vet yesterday and he had an accident in my friend's car. Luckily, believe it or not, there was a diaper handy. I guess I don't have to have kids now. I've been through it all.

[ijsselmeer] lol

[Daem8] lol!

LeniP: Geneva is not in the near future, but who knows?

PsychoTaelonFemale: LOL

[Taelon_Tova] lol

kaworu1981: lmao

kirosi: :)

ijsselmeer: That's naughty. lol

Rayjay: Heh

ColetteNKaytai: LOL!

Ja`en: Oh, dear. lol

[redwolf_eternal: LOL

ColetteNKaytai: Cat?

LeniP: Oh dear, is right.

Ja`en: :)

LeniP: Laddie is incredibly spoiled. I'm his grandmother and I know.

Cyber_Dreamweaver: I'm really, really, really missing Da'an this season on EFC. Will Da'an be back, even for one episode? Or is he truly gone now?

LeniP: Rayjay, two words: crazy cat

LeniP: Cyber, Da'an won't be back. he's gone. But let's enjoy the time we had with him. I had the time of my life playing that character. I've made so many friends and you are all on that list.

Daans_Consort: Hi, Leni, smiles who do you play in your new show and is it a recurring role and is it a main lead and do you like doing it as opposed to playing Da'an.

Taelon_Tova: Thanks, Leni!

Anca: *sniffle* season 5 without taelons......*big sniffle*...without Da'an......

LeniP: Daans_Consort, it was just an audition for a principle role. It could be reoccurring. The series is just starting and I may not get the part. Keep your fingers crossed. I'm pretty good at playing a nasty school teacher, even if it is sci-fi.

Daem8: Sorry if this has been asked before, but which EFC episode was your favorites and why?

Daans_Consort: Yay!! Hugzz. Thanks, Leni.

LeniP: Anca, I'm sad about it, too. But it really felt like the end in all respects.

Daans_Consort: *fingers crossed*

Taelon_Tova: Leni - will keep fingers crossed for you!

Daans_Consort: Please let us know if you get it?

LeniP: Daem8, I really love Live Free or Die, Avatar, Sins of the Father and any episodes with Anita. We are such close friends now.

Guest86968: Leni, is this a new TV series your auditioning for? or theatre?

LeniP: Oh, I also like Wrath of Achilles. That was special.

Daans_Consort: I loved all the episode with Da'an in them. *smiles*

Taelon_Tova: Loved Wrath of Achilles - very Da'anesque!

hhpat: Leni, how do you pick parents for the cats you find? I am a former foster mother for kittens. But my three will not tolerate it in their old age.

KNera: I wonder if rolling down that small cliff hurt...

LeniP: I got to run around in the woods. They let me out of my cage for a week. It was great. It could become claustrophobic.

ihtan: You said perhaps you'll be in Italy. Do you already know in what city? (excuse me for my bad English.)

[LeniP] HHpat, I take them to my vet and they find homes unless friends want them. But I scrutinize carefully.

hhpat: Thanks.

Daans_Consort; Stand ins fell down the hill. LOL

LeniP: KNera, I guess it must have. I'll call the stunt double and ask her.

jassi: Leni, which character would you love to play if you had a free choice?

LeniP: ihtan, I've been to Italy many times. I'm hoping to go back soon. Maybe to Scicily.

LeniP: jassi, I would love to play a lawyer on Law and Order. In theatre I will be doing the Duchess of Malfi hopefully in the spring. Nothing is for sure yet.

hhpat: Thanks.

Ja`en: Hi Leni! Ok, I'm new and I know nothing, I've only seen Season 1, so can I ask, what did you think of Da'an's relationship with Zo'or before it was revealed they were related?

LeniP: I'm doing the Vagina Monologues in my home province in February. Like I said Wednesday, can't wait to go home in front of my family and friends and talk about vaginas. LOL

Katana_UK: Do you have a favorite memory from playing Da'an?

LeniP: Ja'en, It was more uptight and closed. We were real enemies. Once he was my child I was torn. Great stuff to play with.

KNera: Great stuff to watch! ;-)

Ja`en: :) Thanks.

Rayjay: [preferred you two better unrelated.]

Ja`en: Well put, K'Nera!

LeniP: Vaginas are a real show stopper, apparently.

ColetteNKaytai: Colette is on the floor now. LOL

kaworu1981: Hi, Leni, love your character Da'an. Would you ever consider doing a tv movie or spinoff? Oh, and when is your b-day?

UKCompanion: November the 5th

LeniP: jassi, it's not in Toronto, it will be in New Brunswick, and I don't wish that on anybody. The maritimes in February. We'll all meet in the pub and drink for a week.

LeniP: My birthday is Nove. 5. I would consider doing Da'an...maybe in a year or so. I need more time.

kaworu1981: *thanks*

LeniP: Katana, my last scene will always be special to me. I had to say goodbye to one amazing character, Liam Kincaid, and it culminated everything for me in that moment about the show, and my life, and what I would take away from this show.

kirosi: It is wonderful to participate in this chat.

LeniP: Kaworu...bye for now. Let's chat more often. Please everybody forgive my absence. I took it pretty hard in May.

kirosi: It is unusual when a show has a multi layered multilevel aspect to it.

Katana_UK: Thank you, Leni. I think Liam is amazing too :-)

Daans_Consort: Hugzz Leni we did too.

Taelon_Tova: We understand you, Leni.

Rayjay: Nothing to forgive, Leni....

kirosi: It surprises me that somehow.. the universe does not support it's continuance.

Daem8: We all understand.

ihtan: Thank you, Leni for this wonderful chat.

kirosi: How is it, do you think, that the producers were not.. guided to continue?

Daans_Consort: Thank you, Leni for giving us Da'an.

LeniP: Hi kirosi! I think we actors created a lot of those levels. It was an open experience, very giving.

KNera: Hi! Well... a question... erm... hypothetically, how would you define Da'an and what do you think your reaction would be if you ever met face to face with him... say, in a parallel universe?

LeniP: The show went in a completely different direction. They are thinking about ratings and that is the main thing. And people get tired and bored. It's human nature.

kirosi: Thank you. I think so, too.

Taelon_Tova: Good q!

Ma-hal: Leni, you said that you where maybe coming to Germany....do you already know when and where?

LeniP: I'd love to meet Da'an. It would be the experience of a lifetime.

Ja`en: Undoubtedly it would.

KNera: Unforgettable indeed... I know a few ppl who won't forget the character. Thanx!

Daans_Consort: I never will.

Taelon_Tova: We will NEVER forget Da'an.

Agent_Sky: I won't forget Da'an!

Daem8: Agreed!

Anca: Yes!!!

Ja`en: We couldn't if we tried!

LeniP: Ma-hal, I'd have to ask my psychic that. He said within the next year. I really believe in these things. You can laugh at me, but he said I was here to save the world.

muriel: Leni,sorry for dragging you into this chat. It's great you're participating, we, your fans, love you for doing this!!! Please let us know when you'll be performing somewhere! I'll try to come over. :) What's your new show about?

LeniP: Da'an will always be with me and a part of me.

RoHa: He will always be a part of all of us, thanks to you.

LeniP: Muriel, I'll keep you posted. Nothing yet. Just as I said, the Vagina Monologues in February.

kirosi: Wonderful inner resource.

Daans_Consort: Thanks to you. Leni, I have made some wonderful friends.

LeniP: Hi monkey! My new cat has about ten names. As you know I'm crazy that way. So I call him Chengo, which I believe is Spanish for monkey.

LeniP: Especially Robert, Von and Richard. LOL

Daans_Consort: Nods.

PsychoTaelonFemale: Hi Leni!! I wanted to ask: What do you think drove Da'an and Zo'or apart? I love the scenes between you and Anita!! Those ARE my favorites.

LeniP: ...no, psycho, what do you mean your name freaks me out...LOL. I think it was a question of energy. Zo'or will always be Zo'or to the core. He can't change or back down.

Roel: Hugs Leni! When will you come to Italy, and will you play something here? I am desperate to meet you in person as I feel you are a mystery... you are a great actress, I need to stay close to you and observe you acting. Will you let me know when you'll come?

LeniP: ihtan, take care, it's been a pleasure. hey I just want to say to everybody, I'll get to those emails on Yahoo. I have five hundred. It may take me a few years.

Daem8: I know what you mean, Leni. Good luck with them!

[PsychoTaelonFemale] Thanks for answering me Leni! No Z doesn't back down.. Those parts between Da'an and Zo'or are SOO touching though...

LeniP: I'll let you know when I come to Italy. I did perform in Firenze two years in a row at the Teatro della Limonaia( ? )

LeniP: It seems it's time to wrap up. This has been amazing. And so easy once we downloaded 5,290 kbs. LOL

RoHa: Before anyone else leaves let me remind you guys that if you want anything sent to Leni, send it to the club address and I will gladly forward it for you.

RoHa: Hakuna Matata :)

Ja`en: Thanks so much for chatting Leni, hope to see you in Sydney in November!! :)

LeniP: Ro, tell them about my T shirt idea. The farewell T shirt. Love to you all. Thanks Redwolf and as always Roha. Keep your fingers crossed for me. I may be back in sci-fi land before you know it.

[kirosi] break a leg! Thank You so much!

UKCompanion: Leni, you watch Buffy. Who do you prefer, Angel or Riley!? ;-)

RoHa: Will do Leni.

wile1: Leni, hello nice to meet you, So many people are upset about your and Robert and Anitas leaving unexpectedly that they refuse to watch season 5. What do you feel about that?

LeniP: Zander, of course and then Spike. He rocks my world.

RoHa: ANGEL!

LeniP: But I love Angel, too.

Agent_Sky: Spike's good.

UKCompanion: LOL! Ro, I kinda guessed your preference ;-)

RoHa: Nice recovery, Leni :)

Daans_Consort: I love Spike.

LeniP: You get to see Anita in season 5!

Daans_Consort: And Angel.

LeniP: Thanks Ro. Thought you'd notice that.

Daans_Consort: I got a DA'AN t shirt!

RoHa: OK. . .here's the T-shirt rundown. . .Leni has a shirt that says 'Go'one" on the front, "but not forgotten" on the back. It will be sold (I think) through pipeline as soon as it's ready.

LeniP: Underneath Zander's goofy exterior is the red hot body and soul of a tiger.

Daans_Consort: Leni, did you get the T-shirt off Robert yet? I gave it to him at London for you.

LeniP: I missed a bunch of stuff. Things coming to fast. Yes Jo'on I got your letter. So sweet.

Ja`en: LOL, I fear I have to go as well. bye all! Leni, you're the best!!

LeniP: Ja'en, you guys are the best.

LeniP: Wile 1, keep watching the show. You'll see Anita and of course we were upset, but we have four seasons of pretty damned fine work, don't you think?

Agent_Sky: Leni, since I've seen the blooper tape of EFC, which blooper did you like the best, and why?

Daans_Consort: There are only 4 seasons to EFC.

LeniP: Agent -Sky, you guys haven't seen season 4's blooper reel. There's a take where I'm mopping the floor on an emply set as Da'an just when they call ACTION. It totally surprised everyone and I was whistling....doing like a Carol Burnett show spoof.

blacktuesday: Leni, you have cats and dogs. Have you ever considered a ferret as a pet? They are quite mischievous. I've got 3 cats and 4 ferrets, all rescues.

kirosi: [g]

Daem8: LOL! I'd love to see those!

KNera: LOL... and here I only imagined Sandoval mopping the floor... :-p

blacktuesday: That sounds too fuuny.

LeniP: blacktuesday, definitely if it was a rescue...yes. I would never turn anything away, but please don't all turn up on my doorstep. LOL

blacktuesday: lol

Rayjay: Are you doing anything for halloween, Leni...? got a costume lined up?

LeniP: KNear, you don't know how funny that is.

KNera: Mopping the floor?

* Daans_Consort knocks on Leni's door....I'm a stray!!!!

KNera: LOL!

PsychoTaelonFemale: LOL

Taelon_Tova: lol

LeniP: Rayjay, I'm thinking about it. Of course you know I dress up every year for the kids. I scared them so badly last year, probably nobody will show up.

Rayjay: lol

LeniP: Very funny, guys.

Taelon_Tova: lololol

PsychoTaelonFemale: What did you dress up as?

LeniP: Psychotaelon, I went as Hester P from the Scarlet Letter, but as a vampire with her tombstone in my front yard. Real fangs, great music, back lit, the whole nine yards.

LeniP: Mo'om is getting a bit tired now. Do you think we could say goodnight, but not goodbye. I have to keep on Mo'om's good side for the inheritance. LOL

Roel: Big hugs Leni, I hope to meet you soon. You are a very special person to me. You swept my feet away with Da'an!!!!

RoHa: Sure. We love you too, Mo'om.

LeniP: Ro, I'm working on the T Shirt. It will be available on pipetap, but not for a while.

(There was a very long round of goodbyes and well wishes from everyone as Leni prepared to leave the chat.)

LeniP: Last on the list is last but not least. Love to you, girl.

RoHa: OK guys. . .let's let Mo'om and Leni get some much needed rest!

LeniP: Verit...sorry, quick question from Redwolf and you.

LeniP: I LOVE the website. It's amazing. I will visit it extensively later this weekend. But so far so great.

Verit: Hmmmmmmmm... how would you have ended your relationship with Zo'or?

LeniP: Verit, Zo'or would have had a child and it would have brought us together finally.

kirosi: This is so poignant.

Verit: YES! I agree! Thank yoooooooooouuuuuuuu!!!!

LeniP: I'd be a grandma/da.

PsychoTaelonFemale: I LOVE THAT ENDING!!!

LeniP: Yes. Got the t shirt. Thank you so much and for all the presents.

LeniP: Bye everybody. Nightie night.

(There was another long round of goodbyes before Leni left. The chat continued informally without her for another 45 minutes.)
