Loony Times with Rob Paulsen

By

Rob Paulsen just can’t help himself. Over the hour of conversation with him Saturday at 4PM, we heard from Wakko, Arthur, Donatello, and other characters Paulsen had voiced throughout the years. A quick look at Paulsen’s IMDb credits will show you that there are a lot of voices in that head, so it’s understandable that they easily come out. The question that Paulsen got asked the most was whether he had any advice for aspiring voice actors, either for themselves

Hanging with a Demon

Hanging with a Demon

By

The “Lucifer Cast” panel on Saturday at 1PM in the Hyatt Centennial II–III ballroom got off to a forgivably late start since panelist Lesley-Ann Brandt needed to breastfeed her 6-week-old son before she could attend. No one in the audience seemed to mind, and Brandt seemed to have as much fun answering our questions as we did asking them. Brandt confirmed that they are having as much fun filming the show as you might imagine from watching the show. They

Strides in Representation but Problems Remain

By

When Star Trek premiered in 1966, it was revolutionary in showing a more diverse vision of the future. Not only were women in positions of power, but also men and women of color were shown as equal members of the crew. However, like all movies and shows that show diversity or make strides in that direction, it can and has suffered from the narratives being told through the perspective of the power majority. That was the position of panelists John

Tea Dueling in the American Tradition

Tea Dueling in the American Tradition

By

The tournament for the Fourth Annual Dragon Con Tea Duel quickly filled up with contestants willing to put their honor—and their fingers—on the line. You could be forgiven for not knowing that there is an annual tea duel at Dragon Con, but over the four years that the tournament has taken place, the popularity has grown enough that it took place in the Hilton’s Crystal Ballroom instead of in the Alternate History track room in Sheraton Augusta. The rules of

Launching into Hyperspace: A Star Wars Book Launch

By

Del Rey Books editor Elizabeth Schaefer introduced authors Delilah S. Dawson and Claudia Gray to a full room of eager Star Wars fans awaiting the Friday night launch of Phasma and Leia, Princess of Alderaan, respectively. While the books were being purchased in the back of the room, Dawson and Gray engaged in a brief Q&A ahead of their signing. For fear of Lucasfilm lawyers parachuting in to enforce non-disclosure agreements, there wasn’t much either author could reveal about their

Long Life, Long Career: Wallace Shawn

By

Wallace Shawn has been writing plays and acting for nearly 40 years, appearing in movies and television series and lending his voice to iconic roles in many franchises.

So Very English: An Hour with the Cast of Sleepy Hollow

So Very English: An Hour with the Cast of Sleepy Hollow

By

Janina Gavankar and Tom Mison didn’t wait for the moderator to introduce them to take the stage for the Sleepy Hollow panel Sunday morning in the Westin Peachtree Ballroom at 10AM. They popped out on stage waving and smiling at the crowd, at least pretending to be quite awake and lively at that hour. While the audience was getting organized to ask questions, the moderator asked both of the cast members about last season’s crossover with Bones and whether a

Before Batman: An Hour with the Cast of Gotham

By

The “Gotham: Secret Stories” panel at 5:30PM in the Marriot Atrium Ballroom on Saturday was not only full to near capacity, it was packed with guests, too. David Mazouz, Sean Pertwee, Robin Lord Taylor, Chris Chalk, and Drew Powell joined moderator Tony Gowell to answer questions and tell stories from the behind the scenes of Gotham. The questions from the audience were a little slow in starting, and Taylor was amused by the idea of a panel where we all
