Howdy! I am Jessica and I am a proud moderator on the Kyle Chandler forum on this site. I am from Lubbock, Texas and I have been a fan of Kyle since I saw him on Pure Country. I am blessed to be able to have the opportunity to meet Kyle Chandler on the set of Friday Night Lights back in August of 2008.

I got cast to be a high school student extra and met him at one of the football game shoots. He was very friendly, it was almost like I was standing next to an old friend. He shook my hand and said "Hey there Jessie, nice to meet ya." The second night he saw me in the stands and nodded up at me and smiled. It was a surreal experience and I'd do it again in a heart beat. I'm thankful to get the chance to see my favorite actor do what he loves best -- act.

I also have developed the utmost respect for him. Last week I had planned to go to an FNL screening in San Antonio that Kyle was present at. However, my grandmother took ill and I was unable to go. A friend of mine told him the circumstances and he was gracious and kind enough to write me a small message along with his autograph. It's really special to me. The man is so down to earth and kind, something that is rare for most people, much less an actor.

Kyle is a man that is out living a dream. He is very humble and appreciative of every fan.

Thank you Kyle!
