An airport worker helped an actor during her crisis hour and the story is now warming hearts on the internet. Hana Sofia Lopes, a Luxembourg-born Portuguese actor, lost all her luggage while transferring from her home country to Montreal, according to a report in DailyExpertNews. The unfortunate incident happened in New York in October, where she stopped for a short stay to catch up with a friend days before she started production on a movie. The actor continued to call the airline’s office, but was left without luggage for a week. DailyExpertNews said further.
“Here I am in New York, with no clothes other than the ones I wore on the flight. No shoes. No brush for my hair. No makeup. No socks. Nothing. Just me and my handbag,” Ms. Lopes told the outlet after spending a week in New York.
She was on her way to Montreal to attend an industry event, but her outfit got lost along with the luggage. The high-profile event was to be graced by film legends and the Luxembourg Prime Minister, Xavier Bettel.
Failing to get a positive response from the airline, Lopes bought a dress in New York at the last minute and boarded a plane to Canada. But she still didn’t have a make-up bag.
After landing in Montreal, she spoke to the information desk staff about her lost luggage. The actor told DailyExpertNews that she was frustrated but knew it wasn’t the airline employees’ fault and tried to stay calm. However, her emotions came out in the form of tears.
This moved Azalia Claudine Becerril Angulo, a part-time airport worker at Montreal Airport.
“She was very sad, angry too, and I understood why,” Ms. Angulo said DailyExpertNews. “I wanted to help her. Normally people are rude and very aggressive. She was different.”
After hearing her story, Ms. Angulo told Ms. Lopes that she is a makeup artist and would love to help her get ready for the big event.
The actor agreed and the two women exchanged numbers, according to the DailyExpertNews report. The next day, Mrs. Angulo arrived in Mrs. Lopes’ hotel room and both women started talking about their lives.
To further relief, Ms. Lopes learned that her luggage had been tracked down and was on its way to the hotel in Montreal.
The actor said she felt Ms. Angulo was a real “fairy godmother”.
