Celebvocate: Sissy Spacek pushes Virginia film industry
Event: News conference with Virginia Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling to boost local film production.
Site: Capitol in Richmond.
What she wants: Tax breaks, other incentives for filmmakers to shoot in her adopted state. "I just think it's time for Virginia to get a piece of the pie," said the actress, who lives in central Virginia with production designer husband Jack Fisk.
Bona fides: Starred in "Coal Miner's Daughter" and "Carrie."
How she looked: Horse-countryish in black velvet skirt, a gray tweed jacket and red plaid scarf, reports our colleague Roz Helderman.
Observation: Reduced lawmakers to fanboys. "This really is a great honor," gushed state Sen. Creigh Deeds.
Parting gift: Porcelain vase inscribed with "Virginia."
