Back in 2007, Liv and a friend attended the recording of the Dutch late night show "Jensen", where Dwight Schultz and Dirk Benedict were a guest. Unfortunately it was not allowed to take pictures at that time. Ten years later we went to Dutch Comic Con 2017 and things went wrong on our way to Utrecht. The car broke down and because of this we missed Dirk's panel, but Liv had a photo op and she also went for an autograph.
