With a winning bid of $3,250 Tuesday, Andi Benson, a 23-year-old student from San Diego, scored a chance to cozy up with the cold-hearted Claire Underwood (otherwise known as actress Robin Wright) on the Baltimore set of poli-drama “House of Cards.” The charity auction, hosted by the Web site Charitybuzz.com, will benefit the ACLU of Southern California.
What does Benson get for just over three grand? According to the fine print, plane tickets and hotel reservations aren’t included, but the winner can take “something small to be signed.” Benson knows the protocol. She previously visited the set of “True Blood,” after winning another Charitybuzz auction.
There’s no guarantee that the lucky binge-watcher will get to meet other cast members, which is too bad, because Benson told us her favorite character is Edward Meechum (Nathan Darrow), the do-anything-for-his-boss body guard in charge of newly minted President Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey). Benson’s not sure when she’ll make the nearly 3,000-mile trip to see Wright, but she’s pretty sure who’ll be riding shotgun.
“I know my best friend will be ecstatic.”
