Darien Takle's message to the fans after 9/11, ten years later
#1
Darien Takle, the gifted NZ stage actress who played Xena's mother, sent this message to all of her US fans ten years ago, right after the tragedy of 9/11.

Since acting in NZ is not a high-profile profession, and "fans" don't exist there as they do here, she didn't have any web site, or seemingly even a computer. The way she got this out was via an otherwise unknown friend of hers (who appears to be a music teacher in Auckland) who sent this message to anyone whose e-mail Darien had:

Quote:My dear Friends:

My heart goes out to you at this time. This is a terrible, terrible thing
that has happened to your wonderful country. I am so saddened and in shock
and wish there was something I could do to help, apart from sending you all
lots of love and energy to recover from this tragedy.

When I attended the Pasadena Xena Convention last May, I had the most
wonderful time and fell in love with America and Americans. It was a
special time for me - your hospitality, kindness, and enthusiasm, were
exceptional. I know that that special American Spirit will get you through
this tragedy but it will take time. I hope I can see you all soon ... but
in the meantime, please accept my love and have courage.

Lots of Love from

Darien Takle/Cyrene, Xena's Mom
