Grindhouse and Scream star Rose McGowan goes down to 2011 San Diego Comic Con to promote Conan The Barbarian movie
The "Grindhouse" & "Scream" star went down to the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con this weekend to promote the Conan The Barbarian movie.
The interaction with the girl best known as Cherry Darling from Planet Terror was fairly breif. She signed a few autographs for a couple of the fans that had things. I had got her a week or so earlier & was unprepared for her being there that morning as I had not heard of her going to SDCC till it was too late to know.
She asked us if we were going to Comic-Con which we all replied it was too expensive, icnluding a couple of the guys hwo have gone to quite a few over the years. She seemed genuinely disappointed to hear...whether it was because we werent going, or that SDCC was becoming such a cash grab.
She was terrific in signing, and took photos with anyone that asked. On returning, somehow, she got past the group that was waiting. We may have been busy with another entertainer or perhaps, she took a side door. Not too sure, but her departure certainly left a positive taste in everyones mouth.
This weekend a variety of shows & movies had panels at the San Diego Comic Con. That included ventures from Vancouver. Mostly our TV shows.
I will have more detailed blogs later this week, which will include any interesting comments they had to say on any topics of discussion.
Although I did miss several mmembers of Once Upon A Time (ABC) & Sanctuary, I did manage to nab a few of the other stars on their way out.
Saw Fringe (FOX) stars John Noble (didnt get any pics of sadly), Jasika Nicole & Anna Torv as they went on their way out of town.
From The Secret Circle (The CW) we saw Thomas Dekker, Brittany Robertson, Phoebe Tonkin, Natasha Henstridge & Adam Harrington
From Supernatural (CW) we saw Jim Beaver (didnt get any photos), Misha Collins, Jensen Ackles, and Genevieve & Jared Padalecki.
We did manage to snag 1 Once Upon A Time star, as Lana Parrilla made her way thru.
Only non-TV star we nabbed on her way down to SDCC was Grindhouse & Scream star Rose McGowan.
Check back after Monday for more detailed blogs on who we saw, with evne more photos.
So as most Twifans know by now, the 4th installment of the massive Twlight Saga series is finishing off in Vancouver in the next few weeks.
Most even know that yesterday the movies main stars Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen) & Kristen Stewart (Bella Swan) arrived.
However, only the most observant were aware that on Saturday the first cast showed up for filming... including a little piece of Edward & Bellas love.
The festivities started with the first person to come in, former "Alias" star Mia Maestro (Carmen Denali). The 32 year old Argentinian actress who has also been in the international hit "The Motorcycle Diaries" had tweeted the day prior that she was heading to Vancouver Saturday & looked packed for a long visit. She was was very pleasant & and answered questions & seemed very fine with the level of attention she was getting as she made the 100 yard walk to her vehicle to depart.
Not long after her arrival, the most notable name of day 1 arrived. Little 10 year old Mackenzie Foy (Renesmee) came thru with her mom to far more attention than she has ever likely endured before. Everyone there was absolutely blown away with how composed & professional the young star was. She answered questions, smiled for photos & even signed an autograph. I was quite blown away with how well this kid has it together already.
Finally, was Swedish actress, 26 year old MyAnna Buring (Tanya Denali) who I have seen in 2 films before "Grindhouse" & "Lesbian Vampire Killers". The majority of the star watchers & paps completely missed her leaving, and I might have too if someone hadnt made me aware. Because she seemingly flew in under the radar of most, we had little to no time to get a couple pics of her. She also said she was happy to be here & thanked us when we told her to enjoy her time here.
So that was it for the 1st day of the cast arriving. Day 2 obviously proved far bigger for name power... we'll see what day 3, the final day has in store.
I occasionally argue with inanimate objects, but I usually win. So its all good.
