Ali was one of my employees back in the opening days of EDL. Ali who came to us from the Resort Division through our internal CU/audition program. Ali's job was to bring to life the magic of Mary Poppins as what we called back then a "Face Character". Unfortunately, not long after the opening Ali was diagonosed with cancer and had to repatriate to her native England for treatement. This video was made by the EDL Entertainment Division, at the time under the direction of Jean-Luc Choplin, to wish Ali the best of recovery and to let her know that we, her colleagues and friends, were all thinking about her.
This last summer (2011) I had the opportunity to meet up with Ali, her husband Jeremy and their two boys as the visited Disneyland Paris for the first time (for the boys). Although confined to a wheel chair Ali was going strong and the proud mother of two beautiful children. Just wanted to share a real magical moment of memories.
