A young Drumheller girl had a brush with her Hol­ly­wood idol who was in town film­ing Ghost­busters.

Bailey Waters, 15, was ex­cited to learn that McKenna Grace was in Drumheller film­ing. On Thurs­day, August 15, Bailey, who is autis­tic, headed down­town and waited pa­tiently for two hours to meet Ms. Grace.

A per­son in­volved in the pro­duc­tion told Grace about Bailey, that she had drawn a pic­ture and had a Ghost­buster car for her.

Bailey’s mother, Bonita, said Grace found them and spent a half-hour chat­ting with Bailey.

“She told Bailey she will trea­sure the pic­ture Bailey drew and meet­ing Bailey. McKenna was so friendly de­spite her busy film­ing sched­ule,” said Bonita.

Later in the day, Grace showed her ap­pre­ci­a­tion by post­ing an image of the hand-drawn poster and car on her In­sta­gram thank­ing Bailey.
