“One would be at the airport when I was heading to [a] flight – you know, when you go down the escalator,” Ann said. “And a lady jumped straight in front of me – with a pointed finger. And she said, ‘I know you, I know you. Who are you?’”

Ann said the woman kept asking her questions until she had a lightbulb moment.

“Then, she went like this, ‘I know you. I know you. I know who you are. You’re her, aren’t you?’” she said. After she figured out it was Ann, she ran down the escalator and ran away from her!

“That’s how good you are at that role,” Ellen said.
