“I never go up to famous people on the street of New York just because I’m so shy around famous people,” Zach said on The Today Show about meeting him for the first time. “But with Mandy I’m a lifelong fan. And I was like, ‘C’mon, get your courage. You have to go talk to Mandy Patinkin.’”

Mandy added, “I was with my son Gideon, and Zach bumped into us and said hi and walked away.”
