I had some fantastic experiences with guests during the weekend:
Christina Ricci was very chatty. She spoke to me about how beautiful my home city is (Bath) and about how I wanted to be an actor. Then when I met her for a photo the next day she remembered me, which I was extremely happy about.
Jason Isaacs was talking to everyone. He was shocked when I said I was a fan of the films and insisted I carry on reading the books, after I told him I was in process of it (even though it has been a while ).
Robert Carlyle was an utterly fantastic guest! It was the first time I have seen a guest who was actually giving people at the photo shoots a kiss on the cheek! Again, he was very talkative...and I think he is one of the best guests I have met before, and I already have my DP calendar up!
Lana Parrilla was taking the time to do poses with everyone, after wanting to meet her for a very long time I was not disappointed but I haven’t heard any different! She wasn’t doing personalisations but sneakily leant over and asked me my name. But, I had a cringy experience with her at the autograph table as all my words just went and when I tried to ask her to sign in a certain place in my book all that came out was: “Could you sign...” and at this point she had already started but stopped and leant over and said: “What do you want me to write?” She was a very memorable guest. And may I say looks absolutely STUNNING in real life.
Tom Ellis was great but when I met him at the photo opportunity all my words just went and when he asked how I was all I said was: “Ah...uh...um...yeah I’m fine thanks, you?” And he was very nice about it. However, he had a straight face in my photo which I was quite disappointed about .
Tom Felton was very nice but shy.
Val Kilmer was doing what he could and it was an absolute honour to meet him!
Emilie De Ravin was great! And I love her autograph (puts so much effort into every single person’s)!
Sorry the last few are short but I know most of you would be bored reading it
i had a fantastic weekend, the organisation was brilliant and it was definitely one of/if not the best cons I have ever been to. So, thank you SM!
