I know I'm late to the "party," but I was once noticed by Denby Ryan both directly and indirectly. My aunt Lori works for Sarona Carpenter and lives in LA. She adopted a cat from Denby Ryan and they became friends through that (indirect I guess). Later, I commented something along the lines of "I love my little fur cousin, so cute Aunt Lori!" And Denby Ryan commented back to me," I know!"
