(06/24/19) Posted by Avatar 2 producer Jon Landau:
"Kevin Buxbaum has worked as our Production Controller for a number of years. During that time, although always being very proud of what we were doing, I never saw Kevin get outwardly excited about anything... that was until he heard that Michelle Yeoh was going to be in the Avatar sequels. On Michelle's last day working, I saw Kevin ready to leave the lot for the day. I diverted him to set where Michelle greeted him with open arms. At the end of 10-minute plus chat she graciously posed for a picture with Kevin."
