Andreas Deja meets Celine Dion (USA)

On April 17, 2011, Celine Dion met with Adreas Deja, a character animator, backstage of her residency show 'Celine', at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, in Las Vegas, Nevada. She also met with two fans, Curtis and Cheryl Woodside.

About the meeting, Andreas Deja said:

Because I didn't want to show up empty handed, I had prepared the drawing for her you see in the photo. The idea for the gift was to combine my character Gaston from "B & B" with her and that "other" hit movie she was part of.
When I handed it to her she said very seriously : "You know, I've been given things over the years, but this is very special. But let me ask you, is Gaston going to hold on to me or drop me in the ocean?"
She surprised me with that question, and the only answer that came to my mind was: "Well, he didn't get the girl in his last movie, so he's probably going to hold on to you...but be careful with that guy !"
There was a photographer standing by to take our picture, so we both held the drawing for a photo. All of a sudden Celine goes:"No, no, no.....let's do the pose from your drawing."
So here I am finding myself playing Titanic with Celine Dion.
