The woman whose interview with Brendan Fraser made the actor, and let's face it the entire internet, well-up, finally met her hero in person.
Brendan, who filled our childhood with adventure and fun, bringing films like George of the Jungle and The Mummy to life, was a little nervous about stepping back into the spotlight but Lindley was on hand to help.
For a long time, we missed seeing the talented actor on the big screen, so people were thrilled when they heard that his first foray back would be in Martin Scorsese's highly anticipated next flick, Killers of the Flower Moon.
Understandably, Brendan was nervous about the job and expressed his stress to Lindley when she interviewed him as part of a meet-and-greet organised through GalaxyCon.
Wasting no time, the kind fan comforted The Whale actor, saying: "You've got this. You've got this. Just know that the internet is so behind you. We're so supportive. There are so many people out there who love you, and we're rooting for you. And we can't wait to see what you do next."
Honestly, we think everyone needs to hear those words once in a while.
Brendon welled up and earnestly responded with "shucks ma'am."
Footage of their heartfelt exchange quickly went viral and Lindley began counting down the days until she could meet Brendan in person; her dream finally came to fruition this past weekend (9 October) at Comic-Con.
And Lindley told LADBible that it went better than she could've ever imagined: "Many times at larger conventions like NYCC, these sessions go by in the blink of an eye to accommodate as many people as possible. Brendan also had a plexiglass divider between him and the fans in the room for health and safety reasons.
"When my turn came, I smiled and began to say, 'Hi, I’m Lindley!' But before I could finish, I see something click in his head, he smiles, and says 'Are you, Lindley?' He then came around to the other side of the plexiglass to give me a hug.
"We both expressed how nice it was to meet each other in person, and we took our photo together with his arm around me."
She went on to add that she and Brendan were able to continue their conversation and the autographing table for the event, adding: "We were able to talk a bit more at the autographing table. He made sure to ask me how I had been and how everything was going on my end, and I was able to tell him once more how much he is loved. He also told me I have a very promising career in press and conducting celebrity interviews, which meant a lot to me."
Lindley also noted how kind Brendan was, how 'excitement radiates' from him, and how 'lucky' she feels to have met him.
And, we sincerely hope that the pair meet again soon.
