Atlanta, GA Nearly five years ago the Board of Directors at Callanwolde Fine Arts Center set ambitious goals for newly hired Executive Director, Peggy Still Johnson.

Speaking to Yahoo! TV, Joelle admitted: “Mum told me to be professional at all times during filming as there were often people who kept walking into our video. “When we started to film me coming out the shop on Rodeo Drive I was gobsmacked that after the director shouted “action”, they breezed past me as if I wasn’t there. “I had to just carry on and walk out the shop as directed, but I shrugged my shoulders as I came out into shot as I knew they had already messed up that take and I would probably have to re-shoot it.” […] Read more!
