Nia Vardalos spoke today, May 8, 2013 at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas as part of the Women’s Shelter of South Texas Great Expectation’s Speaker Series. Nia is a genuine person who shared stories about her start in “the business” at Second City, her experience kissing John Corbett during filming My Big Fat Greek Wedding, to her heartwarming 8 year journey of becoming an adopted mother.
After she answered any and all questions from the audience, she autographed, took photographs with, and visited with guests who purchased her book “Instant Mom.” Afterwards she allowed me the opportunity to photograph her… for which I am forever grateful… then she continued to autograph the remaining copies.
