I'm back from Dragon*Con!
Omg I miss it already.
I had an amazing time and just so you know, I asked EJO THAT
I asked him firstly if he thought that there were any aspects of Laura Roslin and William Adama that current politicians could learn from. His reply was to laugh and go 'Yeah!' and then he started talking about how great Mary McDonnell is and how amazing she is on set and how brilliant she is as an actress.
Then I asked him (I thought I wouldn't get it squeezed in, but I wasn't letting go of that mic until I did) if there was any chance we would see some more Adama and Roslin as a couple during what's left of the show.
He said (I didn't get it recorded as I was asking it, but someone from Bamberbunnies recorded it so fingers crossed we'll get to see it) that (paraphrased)....
::EJO smiles:: Well...::more smiles:: that's a spoiler, so I can't tell you that.
So guys...I don't want to be too optimistic, but he's open about talking about things that won't happen and negative things that will happen to the characters so refusing to give anything away tells me that there is something to give away :) Hopefully something good.
So, as soon as he answered my question and I sat down, he started talking again about how awesome Mary McDonnell is AND he did a Mary Impression! He told us how she cracks up on set sometimes and bursts out laughing and they have to close down until she's composed herself, and just to demonstrate, he impersonated her laughing her ass off. It was so funny! I recorded it but I'm not sure if the sound is okay, I'll check.
Anyway, THEN he started talking about how he's got people coming back to film that film about the time they all spent on New Caprica and he's really excited about it. The impression I got was that he's convinced everyone (or almost everyone, but he's sure he'll get them all) to come back for the film (I think that means we'll be treated to some Laura Roslin time on New Caprica) and he said that when we all see the film, we're all going to want to go back and rewatch the entire series because it'll open our eyes to so much more :)
Oh, and did I tell you guys, during this Q&A I was sat about two metres from him! I was in the first row directly infront of his chair! YEAH!!!
My friend has a better camera (she was sat next to me)and she's uploading her pics later this week when she gets home. I'll see if any of mine are worthy of viewing before then.
Also, (sorry, very excited right now), someone jokingly said 'We know this is your first Dragon*Con but now you'll know what to expect when you come back next year...hint hint' and then they asked him if he would bring any of the other cast with him. His first reply was 'I'd really like to bring Mary here' to which everyone in the big ball room applauded and whistled. I think people want Mary there :) He also said he'd like his 'Starbuck' to be there and kept saying how he sees her as a daughter. He concluded that part of the q&a by saying he would totally get Mary to come next year. So, unless she's super busy or something, I'm pretty sure he might convince her.
I'm already making plans to be here next year :) As soon as the tickets go on sale, one of them is mine!
So, sorry this is so waffly and all over the place. I'm still pretty hyper and I didn't really sleep most of this weekend. If I passed you or anything at Dragon*Con and didn't get the chance to say hello, 'HI! Sorry I missed you' and I hope, now that I know what to expect from Dragon*Con, I'll be ready for it next year and I'll see some of you there.
Current Mood: happy
