she did seem a little shy in this one. I love how she avoids telling Bruce Dern the actual name of her hometown even though he presses her. "Don't make me announce my home address on national television, pervy older man!" lol. Anyway, she did handle the topic of replacing the original Annie very well, she's quite mature for 15. I have heard that Merv Griffin absolutely adored her and wanted her on his show as much as possible.
