Day 8 was raining hard when I got up it didnt stop till alte afternoon...so I wasted the day watching The Big Bang Theory & a few other shows in Hamilton.
Day 9 showed potential, but ended with disappointment.
First up was a film with Harvey Keittel & Tricia Helfer. At the least, I expected to get both of my Helfers done. As it turned out, this was not the case.
Tricia showed up, came over, and only signed about 8-10 autographs before leaving to do press. I was stunned & thought I better clean up on Keittel, who I expected to be a challenge...I DIDNT expect I would literally get burned by mere inches.
Keittel showed up & did a few autographs right near where I was. My item was probably no more than 4 inches from where he signed, but he never made the effort to just move a bit more to his left & I was left shut out by this premiere. Keittel also only signed maybe 10-15 autographs total.
Jason Jones from The Daily Show With Jon Stewart was also in the film & did a decent amount of autographs, but I had nothing for him & had to sit back & watch.
The next film had Abigail Breslin and a few people I had nothing for.
I expected to do well with Breslin, and if the $8 an hr peons who hate their life werent there, I likely would have. I did manage to finally get 1 autograph from her near the end of her signing, but she was rushed away very quickly, and only signed maybe 20-30 autographs total, in random clusters along the red carpet.
I left Roy Thompson Hall for the last time of the fest feeling very disappointed in my output there.
I arrived at the midnight showing at Ryerson for a film with Danielle Harris & others, including Fringe castmate "The Observer" Michael Cerveris.
Some young kid named Connor Paolo showed up first & girls seemed excited. Shortly after, Top Gun star Kelly McGillis arrived & signed a bunch for the fans. Then Danielle Harris came over & signed everything there was out there. I ended the evening getting a few photos of them & having a few words with Cerveris about his filming in Vancouver.
My day was complete, with a very underwhelming 4 autographs. I was quite disappointed with the outcome, considering the potential the day had.
