A few years ago, a Palos Verdes Peninsula High alumnae was less than enthused about showing up to her 10-year reunion. Luckily, the comedic side of her thought up a little prank in which she would send a doppelgänger from Jumbo's Clown Room to play the role of the former drama geek, Andrea Wachner. It was all caught on film for a 40-minute documentary and now she's gaining some national attention, appearing on Good Morning America, Inside Edition and CNN, among others, says the Daily Breeze. The 6-minute teaser (you can watch it below), is doing pretty well on YouTube and now Wachner is getting asked about books, reality TV and making a feature length film.
