Whole lotta ST Conventions coming in Oct./Nov.

Post by Helen8 » Wed Oct 03, 2018 12:19 pm

So far it looks like Jason will be at Birmingham, Oct. 19–21. Many of the rest of the Cons don't have a lot of celebs attending as yet, but that will probably change as the dates get closer.

Huh!

"Let's plan on meeting up, get to know each other once and for all . . ."

Um.

"We've actually met and had lovely chats on a couple of occasions . . ."

The Shat's memory is as good as mine. :???:

I've seen him a couple of times at Conventions and I can't anymore. It's so uncomfortable - he can get very rude - even to young children. I get it that he is getting up there in age - but if he doesn't enjoy the conventions and interactions with fans he should stop doing them.

I suspect both his ego and perhaps his pocketbook require the constant feeding of conventions. He doesn't seem to get very many paid gigs that are not priceline commercials anymore. Hmm... that sounds a bit cattier than I meant it. But it's no secret that his ego is huge - anyone who follows him on twitter knows that.

I did get to see Karl Urban at the Philly Wizard World in May. He seemed pretty nice and down to earth during hi Q&A. He literally sat on a couch and answered questions from the audience for a little bit over an hour. My friend was like "He's my favorite ST character!" And I was like "Eomer! Skurge! Julius Caesar!" lol.
