Default A Message From Scott Bakula!

To everyone involved in "The Leap Back" convention,

Thank you all for your hard work( producers, staff and volunteers!) and thanks to everyone who bought tickets and memorabilia and participated in the event! The programs and interviews and artwork were very well done and classy! A special thank you to all the Q.L. guest stars and to the old Q.L. team who gave so generously of their time! I will treasure the beautiful glass commemorative "award", while acknowledging that EVERYONE involved with the convention had a hand in making Sam a "Timeless Character"!

And a very special nod to my friend and publicist of many, many years, Jay Schwartz, who not only won the trivia contest, but I think at times loves the show more than all of us! He worked tirelessly behind the scenes(and in front!) to help make the weekend a success!

Good luck and good health to you all, and again..... Thanks for the Memories!!!

S.B.

That was a nice gesture on his part. Class act, that man.

Scott is one of the great ones!!!!!

Scott was always one of my favorite actors growing up. Long before I knew about him as a person. His true personal character has far exceeded any expectations we could have had.

There are too many people and things in this life that fall far short of what we want them to be. How rare is it for a person to surpass them??? Every time I read about Scott Bakula he further exceeds my previous opinion.

Before the Convention I started a thread about being nervous to met Scott. The truth is I was far from nervous or anxious when I met him. For a few moments this 30 year old man reverted back to the little kid who first watched Quantum Leap. I saw a look of recognition of that from him. He did not make me feel self-conscious of that at all.

Thank you Scott!

(Yes my name is Tom. So when he told me that I had a big grin on my face! )

What a great message. That kind of gesture and appreciation is, sadly, a rarity -- not just in Hollywood, but in our society. Scott is definitely a class act.

One question was brought up about his note...

He mentions a glass award and I'm sure you all remember him giving his trivia award to a person in the audience. The one he mentions in the note is a different award we gave him that was supposed to be given onstage but we ran out of time for that part of the show. So, he got it after the convention.

Hope that clears it up for anyone wondering.
