lonelygirl15 revelation wrap-up

Secrets revealed! Story broken! Internet wins again!

The actor who played Bree hasn’t been hiding anywhere — she’s been living openly in LA and, as you might expect from LA, no one has noticed her. As for the producers, they don’t have any major corporate or viral marketing plans (at least not yet), and hope the story can continue to take its course, even though it may play out differently now. After all, says the _NY Times_, “[p]art of the appeal of the series was that the serious-minded, literate Bree offered an unbeatable fantasy: a beautiful girl who techy guys had something in common with.”
