OMG! You wouldn't believe the party tonight!
It started around 7pm when Mark (Badger) Sheppard (photo w/me in previous post: Dec 8th) offered to autograph stuff and a line formed, I wasn't going to bother him because I already had the amazing photo...but then I decided to go up and get one of my Serenity
comic books and have him autograph the beautiful picture of Badger... And Brett Mathews was there giving away reprints of the first Serenity
comic book and autographing them (someone from Dark Horse was giving away free logo key rings, how cool is that?!).
Anyway when I was heading upstairs I ran across Jonathan M. Woodward (Holden on Buffy
, Knox on Angel, and Tracey on Firefly
) and I had to tell him how brilliant he was in Wit
(where he starred w/Emma Thompson), I asked if they had him come to the Emmys, and he said he would have but it was the year the Emmys were cancelled (how disappointing is that!).
Just as I was getting into a line to have my picture taken with Jonathan, I saw Nathan Fillion walking into the bar carrying a box.... When he arrived there was a huge stir and I hopped up onto a chair:
(there are photos that go here but are refusing to load...I'll put them in my photo bucket
Nathan said how sorry he was to hear about our con being .... maybe another definition of 'con'.
He then shouted out, who is from Australia, one young lady came forward (she came from Australia for the convention but she also has family to visit in the area) anyway he gave her a gift from the box, I think it was a book that ties into his next project...
then he asked for others from Australia, those from Great Britain, and other far away places and he gave them stuff from his box....
Turns out Nathan had pulled out books and tapes and 'Serenity' money from his closet, dumped them in a box and gave them away!
I didn't try to get anything I was just marveling at how amazing he was to even think of doing this! So amazingly cool.
But at that point someone from the Hotel came over and told me to get off the chair (well I knew that would happen sooner or later).
So I doubled back toward the bar (away from Nathan) only to see Alan Tudyk right in front of me! OMG!
He was so sweet, when I touched his arm and said I loved his work he actually introduced himself. So funny, of course I knew who he was...but there was so much noise in the room I'm sure he couldn't hear me...and probably he wanted me to introduce myself. But the noise was rising and people were starting to notice him, so I just got a quick photo with him
and let him escape to join Nathan (and a huge cheer went up as people saw him there).
I then got to the bar where I saw Christina Henricks and Jonathan M. Woodward.
And finally I worked my way around the bar toward Nathan, who was trying to move quickly through the crowd (but letting people take pictures with him)...when he got to me he just took my camera and took a picture of the two of us together (it came out perfectly, showing how brilliant he is!).
Can you believe this? So cool! So beyond cool! Happy Happy Joy Joy....
