Apparently sparks didn’t fly the first time they met: “I joke with Ben all the time, my husband, that if he had just paid attention to me when I was doing episodes of his TV show, he could have had me in my prime.”
However, she and Ben didn’t share any major scenes together on the show, but she had another plan to meet him then.
“We never acted together,” she adds. “I really just honestly wanted to say hello and meet him, and he doesn’t even remember the encounter so that just goes to show you how far below the scale I was at this point.”
Morena and Ben met again seven years after The O.C. on Gotham, which ended in 2019.
Just before quarantine, Morena and Ben stepped out to the Broadway premiere of Grand Horizons
