Dragon*Con in Atlanta doesn’t officially begin until 10am tomorrow morning, but as I have for the past two years, I went down today to pick up my badge and also attend the Media Relations pre-con party, due to the fact that I have a chance to attend this year as press for Hollywood News (covering the attendance of James and Oliver Phelps, who are the HP guests this year).
The media relations party was basically a chance for the press to mingle with each other and some of the stars. Gil Gerard (“Buck Rogers”), Richard Hatch (“Battlestar Galactica”) and Daniel Logan (Boba Fett, Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones) were all there, having fun and shooting pool, enjoying the food and drinks with the rest of us. If was a fun party, and I got a few good photos.
The convention officially begins tomorrow, and during the course of the weekend, I may have the opportunity to schedule interviews with some of the stars. So here’s what I need to know: take a look at this year’s guest list, and if there’s a star that you’d like me to ask a question to, let me know who and what the question is. I will definitely be asking for interviews with the Phelps twins, and possible the stars from Twilight and True Blood, if I can manage it.
