As a NYU student who attended while “Felicity” was on the air, I can admit to imagining (depending on which one Felicity was dating at the moment), that either Noel Crane or Ben Covington was my boyfriend. Or at least that I should be dating someone like Ben or Noel. No such luck. When “Felicity” ended, and I graduated, I went through a period of grief over my imaginary boyfriends (and Felicity) and the real-life ones that never materialized. It’s good to know that I’m not the only one. During a recent press junket for “Scandal,” one of the reporters lamented to Scott Foley about how she went to NYU expecting to meet her Noel, but never did. After the jump, Foley’s tough love response:
Reporter: A lot of us NYU girls —
Scott Foley: Oh God, NYU girls. You went because of “Felicity”?
Reporter: Maybe? Kind of? Sort of? Can you help us come to terms with the fact that we never met our Noel?
Scott Foley: Wow, there’s so many ways to go with that. I don’t even know how to — I feel guilty, yet I feel like telling you that Noel’s … fake. I know, it sucks hearing that. I don’t know how to explain it any better than that. Although, I love Noel. I miss Noel. Such a sweetheart, such a good guy.
