The majority of the cast from the ABC rookie show "Once Upon A Time" went down to the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con this weekend.
In total, Josh Dallas, Robert Carlyle, Jennifer Morrison, Lana Parrilla & Ginnifer Goodwin went to the event that has become a major promotion tool for TV & movies alike.
On the way to SDCC
We only managed to catch Lana Parrilla on the way down to SDCC. Most of the cast left on a super early flight, so we missed most of them, but Parrilla left later in the day & fortunately, we were there to get her. She told us shes loved playing her role on the show so far & that she hoped we would really love the show. She willingly signed whatever was asked and personalized all of them.
A couple of the hounds lucked out and got Robert Carlyle, Ginnifer Goodwin & Josh Dallas upon returning. I unfortunately was not there for that venture. Later however, Lana Parrilla came thru while I was there, but no one approached her, so I didnt want to bug her just to take a photo.
Last arrival of the evening for the OUAT cast was Jennifer Morrison. JMo instantly saw the row of autograph hounds waiting along the long railed off area inside the airport & didnt even hesitate. Came right over & signed anything she was asked to sign. She was on the flight with a cast member from Eureka, Sally Richardson-Whitfield & Sally asked Jennifer if she was tweeting about heading to Vancouver, which Jen said "no...wait, I think I did". She said she enjoyed comic-con & has so far enjoyed filming. When someone said they really were disappointed she was written off How I Met Your Mother she replied "so was I, it was my favorite job", but that she understood the role was only temporary anyways. Not long after, she was done & on her way.
The majority of the primary cast from the CW hit show "Supernatural" went down to the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con this weekend.
In total, Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Jim Beaver & God himself, Misha Collins went to the event that has become a major promotion tool for TV & movies alike.
Going to SDCC
We first saw Misha. This was upsetting for me, because it was only upon his arrival that I realized....I had nothing for him to sign. I had 2 instances like this that weekend, this would be the first. I still took a few pics of him & asked him filming was going & if he knew how many episodes he would be around for this year. He kept pretty tight lipped about the latter question, but said things have gone well so far for this season.
At about the same time as Colling arrival, Jim Beaver also arrived. He stopped to sign for the few of us who had stuff for him, and really, I didnt get much of a chance to chat with him as this was prime time for people arriving, and actors for other shows were still coming in as well. I told him to have a good trip & have fun. Unsure if he heard me or not, hopefully he did.
Not too long later, Jensen Ackles showed up. Myself & 1 of the other hounds who got him only 2 wks ago decided to give him a pass for autographs, but that didnt stop a couple of the others from asking him. Had a few words with him about filming this season, said its gone well. Asked him if we'll see Death much this season, he had a bit of a grin, but no verbal reaction to it outside of "I dont know". Then he was on his way.
The last person we got on Saturday was the SPN fanbases favorite love/hate couple. Genevieve & Jared Padalecki arrived, just literally minutes before the cut off time for their flight....but that didnt stop the demon & demon killer from stopping to sign for us & chat some. Gen was incredibly pleasant, and yeah, I know how some of you fans pick on her because of your personal views on her husband and his life. My opinion on it, grow up. I've read your theories, and IMO I think its pretty far fetched. Not impossible, but verrrry far fetched. Shes a pleasant & friendly girl who doesnt seem like the type of person who would try to take advantage of any situation for PR or $, so really, stop assuming such a thing till 1 of your batshit nuts friends comes up with some real verifiable proof of your idiotic claims. As for Jared, he was his usually friendly self. even called Gen back when he realized the other hound had a photo that she was on. She of course has started signing "Genevieve Padalecki" which the hound, who had got her back when she signed Cortese, said "oh youve changed the signature" which she replied with the fairly obvious "well I'm married now". Jared was signing for me when I asked him about getting held up in customs for his return to Vancouver a couple weeks prior, which he said "yeah, I have been hauled in 3 times already.". I asked him what he did to piss them off & he said it was a visa issue. he then politely said they had to go (which they really did...like I said, showing up literally last min) & the couple hurried off to their gate.
Returning from SDCC - I never saw anyone. I missed Misha by literally seconds, which better result in the firing of a specific Burger King employee, since the incompetent dullard cost me anywhere from 45-75 seconds of time, and I missed Misha by less than 30 seconds. Jim stayed down there an extra day, as for J2, as far as I know, no one has any idea when they returned.
I occasionally argue with inanimate objects, but I usually win. So its all good.
