Christina Ricci Marries James Heerdegen
Actress Christina Ricci married fiance James Heerdegen on Saturday, October 26, on the Upper East Side in New York City.
The couple tied the knot at the Harold Pratt House and Peterson Hall, while surrounded by family and close friends. Ricci wore a Givenchy Haute Couture high neck dress with white beaded long sleeves and a long train.
US Weekly confirmed that Ricci, 33, and Heerdegen were engaged in February. Following the wedding ceremony, there was a candy table included along with the standard dinner and dancing. Ricci picked out the treats herself from Economy Candy in Lower East Side.
Ricci received initial accolades as a child star for her performance as Wednesday Addams in 1991’s “The Addams Family,” 1993’s “Addams Family Values,” and her role as Kat Harvey in 1995’s “Casper.” As she matured, she went on to star in Tim Burton’s “Sleepy Hollow” in 1999, as well as Vincent Gallo’s “Buffalo ’66” in 1998. Here’s a clip from Buffalo ’66:
Ricci met dolly grip Heerdegen on the set of her former ABC series “Pan Am” in 2011. Ricci recently played the role of “Vexi” in “Smurfs 2,” by Sony Pictures.
In case anyone is wondering, on a film set, a dolly grip is a dedicated technician trained to operate a camera dolly. The dolly grip places, levels and moves the dolly track, then pushes and pulls the dolly and usually a camera operator and camera assistant as riders. If the dolly has a moveable vertical axis, such as a hydraulic arm, then the dolly grip also operates the boom. While the camera operator is moving with the camera, the dolly grip is in charge of the operator’s safety, helping them to blindly negotiate their way through sometimes complicated sets.
Ricci was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actress for 1998’s “The Opposite of Sex,” and was also nominated for an Emmy for her role as a paramedic in the ABC drama Grey’s Anatomy.
