While shooting Season 8 of the Showtime drama on location in Chicago on Wednesday, Emmy Rossum who is a Golden Globe-nominated actress, decided to give the mass of people who had lined up behind barricades to watch the production a tasty treat. Emmy wanted her fans to have something a little sweet.

So she got a box of 100 cookies from Insomnia Cookies — the chain bakery that sells warm cookies until the wee hours — and handed them out to the “patient” fans.

The only problem was they estimating crowd size seems to be a lot bigger this year — and ran out before giving everyone their sugar fix. While she was disappointed, as you may be able to tell from her face, Twitter saved the day.

There’s also a small video clip from her Instagram account that day.

Emmy was surprised how quickly the topic became hot in Chicago and following her Twitter account she feels to be very humble too.
