Hi, if you had the opportunity to ask your favorite TV or movie star a question, what would that be?
I followed Xena to RingCon this October, which was also my first visit to a TV series / movie convention, and we managed to join the panels of Jason Momoa aka Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones, and Craig Horner from Legend of the Seeker.
The panels were really fun. Craig was very motivated and charming, while Jason lived up to his reputation as a tough and relentless warrior.
Typical fan questions fell in one of the following categories:
What is your favorite episode, villain, or superhero and why?
Could you imagine playing ... (insert character role here)?
How did you feel at scene X, in episode Y, after the final episode, and so on?
Please perform an act from the series on stage!
Would you like to have coffee with me? ;) Would you mind removing your t-shirt and pose for us ;) Yes, really *lol*
Besides the Q&A panels, there were also lots of lectures and workshops, a fantasy fair area and you had the opportunity to line up for a paid photo with your favorite star, or get a paid autograph as well.
It was quite a big event with thousands of fans from around the world, and as usual I was equipped with my camera in search of cool fantasy outfits. Unfortunately the stars did not come in costume / in character, but some of the fans did ...
Xena and Aubrey
Thor and Orc
Khaleesi (Game of Thrones)
Xena and Aragorn
Back to the Future: Xena with Craig Horner from Legend Of The Seeker
The two cowgirls who asked Craig Horner the 50 Shades question :P
The big party in the hotel lobby. After some time Jason Momoa from Game Of Thrones showed up and then the big party really began with hundreds of (mostly female) fans throwing themselves on him ;)
Xena and Jason Momoa aka Khal Drogo and the new Conan. Notice how tall he is and his BIG beer glass speaks for itself :P
