Cynthia Gibb tells Playbill her Favourite Fame Memory

In the run up to the Fame Reunion Concert in L.A. Cynthia Gibb tells Playbill her Favourite Fame Memory:

My first day of work on Fame was in August of 1983. I had just moved from New York and I knew no one, except my boyfriend of three years (Chris Atkins)—but we were temporarily broken up at the time. The phone company in L.A. was on strike, so no new phone service was being set up. I had no furniture in my West L.A. apartment except a lawn chair and I had a rental car and had to go to the payphone in Westwood to call home. Needless to say, I was desperately lonely.
"When I went to work on day one of Fame (on the MGM set) I reported to dance rehearsal. I arrived and started to warm up. No one talked to me. I was terrified and intimidated by these amazing performers. I was close to hyperventilating with anxiety when one of the dancers came running up to me and said with a smile, ‘Hi. I’m Kim. I’m your godsister!’

As it turned out, I had never met my godmother and godfather (who were my parents' best friends in Vermont in the early 1960s) because they moved to California when I was a baby. My mother and Joyce danced together in Vermont and became close friends. Their two daughters pursued dance careers, and all three of us ended up on Fame together. We spent three years working together and I am proud to call them my friends. I don’t know how we would have ever known each other if it weren’t for Fame!”
