The majority of the primary cast from the CW rookie show "The Secret Circle" went down to the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con this weekend.
In total, Brittany Robertson, Thomas Dekker, Natasha Henstridge, Phoebe Tonkin and Adam Harrington went to the event that has become a major promotion tool for TV & movies alike.
Going to SDCC
First 1 to roll in for any production was Phoebe Tonkin. It was early, and we were, understandably tired as some of us had little or no sleep, so we all played the "I think thats..." game & unsure if it was, went inside after her. One of the hounds said from a distance "hey Phoebe' & when she turned around, we knew it was her, but she was already in the queue to check in. So we waited till she was done and asked her to sign as she was getting towards the gate to go thru to her flight. She joked that she was happy that she wasnt hearing things, as she responded to our earlier distant call out for her attention that was not followed up with anything.She told us how she was super tired after a long night of work, then to get straight on to a flight. She didnt complaina bout it, or try to find (what would have been a very valid excuse) an excuse to not stop for us, she did it and was perfectly fine doing so.
Shortly after Thomas Dekker arrived. He looked even more tired than Phoebe did. But, like his co-star, Dekker stopped signed and chatted a bit with us. He looked pretty sleepy, so we didnt hold him up for too long. Just let him get on his way after a few autographs.
A little while later, Natasha Henstridge came in. She looked to be in a rush, so we gave her a chance to stop & fill out her customs form before we approached, and then she took the time to sign everything we had and chatted a bit. When asked for a photo with, she kinda gave the "I'd rather not" look, but said ok, her reasoning was she had just woken up & had no make up on...but she was willing to do it...only for the batteries to die on my camera, which she responded with a small fist pump and a "yes". Still overall, pleasant & friendly.
The next morning, Britt Robertson came thru quite early. Like the day befores castmates, she seemed tired & legitimately so, having come straight from work to the airport. When 1 of the hounds said he was shocked they didnt get the day off considering they have the event later that day, she replied with a loud "Ha" as if to say "yeah right". Essentially she was saying that, but it was more of a "the production cant really afford a day off" with it being a new show & still unproven, giving the stars a day off isnt really in the cards yet. She talked about how she wasnt always too excited with photos she had from her previous show Life Unexpected, saying she just didnt think they looked good. But her shots for TSC she seemed quite enthusiastic for. After a couple mins of chatting, she went on her way.
I also saw Adam harrington leave, but had very little chance to interact with him as I had nothing for him to sign and neither did anyone else. Snapped a couple quick pics, but thats all there was time for really.
Upon their return. We saw Phoebe, Thomas and Natasha again. Each of them willingly signed again for those who asked. We were told Britt wasnt coming right back, and no sign of Adam.
Autographs of the cast will soon be for sale on the site. Any candid photos you would like for your site untagged & in HQ, or personal collection, can be purchased now. Prices shown in the "candid photos" link on the left side of the screen.
I occasionally argue with inanimate objects, but I usually win. So its all good.
