Motor City Comic Con 2011

This year, I was able to drive up to Motor City Comic Con in Novi, MI again. There were too many great guests to miss this huge show. I attended this con as a fan, instead of press, so no interviews this time around. But I did want to share some photos from the convention with you all.

Dean wasn’t in great form that day. But it was still great to meet a favorite actor from an all-time favorite show – Quantum Leap.

Sam Huntington said this wasn’t his first convention, but it was his first convention where he could sign autographs and meet his fans. Syfy’s Being Human star was just as sweet and down-to-earth as he appears. Not all werewolves are scary.

As before, Benedict was great with his fans, taking time to talk to each one. He’s very approachable. And there was a line at his booth all day. This is how to treat your fans.

On the Set of Psych!

Psych Set Me, Maggie Lawson and Tim Omundson

A few weeks ago, I was able to travel to Vancouver for a set tour and interviews with the cast and crew of Psych! As Psych is one of my favorite shows on television, I was incredibly excited to meet everyone and get to see the sets up close. Over the next several days, I will be posting the interviews that I (and other media outlets) had with the following people: James Roday, Dulé Hill, Maggie Lawson, Tim Omundson, C. Thomas Howell (special guest star), Saladin Patterson (writer) and Gordon Mark (producer).

It was a fantastic day. All of the actors were very witty and engaging. And meeting C. Thomas Howell was an extra treat that we weren’t expecting, as he just happened to be on set that day and generously agreed to a quick Q&A session with all of us.

The episode they were shooting that day was the summer mid-season finale, which airs Wednesday, September 8th. From what we saw, it will be very funny and… explosive!

Following all of the off-site interviews, we were able to visit the sets of the Psych office, Santa Barbara Police Department, and Henry’s home. Since they weren’t filming at the studio that day, we were able to take photos with our own cameras. The sets were not lit, and all I had on me was my iPhone 4 – so excuse the weak flash.

Out of the Office

I may be silent for a while on the website and Twitter, as all of this week I’ll be in Vancouver. I have the opportunity to go on set tours of two USA Network shows – Psych and its newest show Facing Kate. The latter I’ll be covering for Buzzfocus.com. More to come on those!

But even though I won’t be around, that doesn’t mean SciFiChick.com will come to a halt. Keep checking back this week for a few giveaways, where some lucky visitors will have the chance to win books and DVDs!
