Girl with Down Syndrome Sneaks Behind Reporter, Steals Show And Hearts With Sweetest Impromptu Interview!

A reporter in Queensland, Australia had an unexpected special guest on a segment called “Street Talk” on 7 Local News Mackay. Scott Linden, was wrapping up a segment in a shopping mall when Georgia Knoll snuck up behind him and into the frame. Linden stops short, unsure what’s going on behind him. Meanwhile, Knoll waves timidly at the camera, and quickly primps for her debut.

“Do you want to say hello to the camera?” asks Linden. Off camera, we hear Knoll’s response: “Yeah!” Then Knoll takes the spotlight, completely giddy.

“I’ve been doing Street Talk on 7 Local News Mackay for either 9 or 10 years now,” says Linden in a Facebook comment on the video. “I reckon we’ve done around 400 editions… This is the most memorable Street Talk of those 400 or so.”

7 Local News Mackay followed up with Knoll soon after to ask what she thought of her newfound fame. “It’s awesome!” she said. “I love it! It’s in my heart.” Her laughter is absolutely infectious. “I’m so happy!”

Watch the moment Georgia Knoll captured our hearts in the video below!
