The majority of the primary cast from the Syfy hit show "Eureka" went down to the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con last weekend.
In total, Colin Ferguson, Salli Richardson-Whitfield and Neil Grayston went to the event that has become a major promotion tool for TV & movies alike.
The first person we saw was Ferguson. Now earlier that day, Colin had made an angry tweet directed at someone...assumed to be at the Comic-Con event, where he said "Dear Guys who want 8 signatures... dont call me an asshole when I only give you 4. It actually hurts my feelings." so we, autograph hounds, who ourselves are occasionally in the position of having many items for someone, obviously discussed the comment & were at the time on Fergusons side. Seemed VERY reasonable to do 4 items for someone. Unfortunately, Ferguson lost most everyones support when he arrived in Vancouver and of the THREE people who even asked him he sternly & with a touch of attitude said "I'll do one". One of the hounds even joked with him about the tweet, which Ferguson replied with "yeah...I'm still just going to do 1". Now whether Colin was taking his previous frustration out on the next people to ask for autographs, or, he was truly so put out by the previous encounter that hes now got this "fuck the fans" attitude, he alienated some people who have supported & promoted his show that is filmed right here in Vancouver. he handled the situation quite poorly, and certainly went away from the evening as the loser in the PR game.
Neil Grayston was also with him & was just fine. Willingly signing multiples and said this seasons filming has gone fine so far.
Sally Richardson-Whitfield also was accomodating to those who asked.
