  • Among the group is an American actress who doesn't like being at the rear of the march.
  • She decides to make her way to the front, and does so with a sudden sprint.
  • There is a ruckus as the others protest making the march into a star-fest.
  • When a professor physically stops her, she starts crying, and a photographer snaps her photo.
