  • Your first face to face meeting with the cast at a con...

    Please share your first face to face meeting with the cast at a con.

    I was sharing an elevator at Syndicon in Baltimore with Elizabeth and Peter. I had a jewel colored knitted wrap to keep me warm in the air conditioned building. Elizabeth spoke first and asked me where I got my beautiful wrap. I told her it was my own work. Peter joked that they now knew who to find if it got cold up on the stage because the hotel kept the convention rooms temperatures around sixty degrees.

    (My wrap is over seven feet long and was designed for a tall person to wear down to the knees.)

    HLWW9. Andrew and I were sitting at the hotel bar and hear "Brothers!" All heads turn and there he is, Silas, Richard Ridings. That voice man. So low it reverberates through your bones and gets amplified by your muscle, sinew and guts.

    Scientifically false. Try again?

    Shut up Koto.
    Richards voice is so low that he deafened 4 people by popping their eardrums.

    No and possible libel this time.

    Richards voice is so low that a pregnant woman had her water broken by the drop in air pressure when he spoke.

      God, I was so nervous at HLWW8. So, so nervous.



      First time I've seen Adrian in person. With David. I was giddy.

        Anglicon 10, and I met Peter Wingfield in person. Then later luck was with me and I made it to Syndicon East, and got to interact with Jim...

          Met Adrian at the first ever SLCC while getting his autograph, then annoyed him the next day during his panel by asking him a couple of questions about The Source and its abandoned follow ups.

            That's EXACTLY what I'd want to ask him about (as well as Endgame). Did you get this on film at all? What did he say about the Source?

              He talked at length about how The Source became such a disaster, giving a surprisingly detailed example of the director's lack of preparation for the project, and then went on to tell us about what he would've liked its follow up to have focused on. I did get it (and most of the rest of that panel) on film, and I thought I had that section of it uploaded somewhere, and yet I can't seem to find it on Facebook or YouTube, but I know I have the video on my computer at home (I'm at my brother's house, atm), so I'll reupload it later today and post it here for you.

                Thanks so much. That would be great.

                  There was never, ever going to be a Source trilogy. That was just buzz from TPTB in press releases.

                      Thanks. That was very interesting. I'm glad he's able to be so frank about these things. I wonder if he has any control over Highlander as a property in the present day, or at least past content.

                        If you order the HLWW8 or 9 DVDs, Adrian and David and everyone talk pretty candidly about the Source, even then. "A gilded turd" was David's words, rather famously to everyone there. Dimension wanted a slasher film and sort of shuttered David's Source script.

                          This wasn't exactly a convention, but a funny experience re an actor, Paul Johansson's, scheduled meetings with groups of fans. Another fan and I trekked up to Toronto (from upstate New York), only to discover that I'd misremembered the date! So...we turned around and traveled a long way in the opposite direction. I think it was Tennessee. We did get to a meeting, and Paul was great with the fans, though I don't recall any specifics. I'm sure we regaled the group with the story of our travels, and everyone had a good laugh.

                            He's generally frank, except when he's signed a contact forbidding it. That's why I enjoy reading/hearing what he has to say.

                              That sounds really great! I want it, too but I don't know how. Can you show me how to you have the first face to face meeting?
