Kim Dawson, legendary agent, died today. She was 85 years old and a victim of Alzheimers. She was a top model in NYC for many years and then a top agent nationwide based in Dallas. A pioneer. She had the eye for fashion models and knew actors and voice actors. She booked children and animals and every type of act imaginable in her career. She had a wonderful staff and family who supported her always. She was the patron of so many charities and causes. She worked tirelessly for the things she believed in. She was a master agent.
She took me to lunch once, about twenty five years ago. She said, "you are the one I have always wanted in this town." I signed with her that very day. She was fabulous.
The last time I saw her was at a Dallas restaurant. She did not know anyone anymore but I loved seeing her. She was as gorgeous as ever, regal and sure.
Good bye Kim. So many love you. God loves you more.
