Daily Dragon (DD): Thanks for taking the time out to talk with me. Let’s

The First Dragon Con for The Girl Who Waited

By

Doctor Who is one of the staple fandoms at Dragon Con, and all of us Whovians were excited to have Karen Gillan attending for the first time, as evidenced by the packed Atrium Ballroom in the Marriott at 11:30 Monday morning. The room was full practically to capacity as we gathered for her second panel. Gillan took questions on a range of topics, but unsurprisingly, the majority of them centered on her time as Amy Pond. One young fan asked

If Tony Curran is on a guest panel, you can pretty much guarantee that the whole panel will be frantic, frenetic, and wild. The “Familiar Faces: Defiance Cast Q&A” Saturday at 5:30PM in the Westin was absolutely no different. Joining Curran were Jesse Rath, Graham Greene, Trenna Keating, and Stephanie Leonidas. Case in point, as the guests were introduced, Curran stepped out first wielding a lightsaber. As Rath was introduced, Curran pretended to cut off his hand, in true father-son

The “Supergate 3: Is There a Doctor in the House?” panel on Saturday afternoon in the Westin Peachtree ballroom started with guests David Hewlett, Teryl Rothery, and Paul McGillion pausing at the edge of the stage together to give everyone a photo op and for Hewlett to take a selfie. From that very first moment, the tone of the panel was set. Hewlett started out by saying that the first thing he has learned from Dragon Con is that if

Antics and Artifacts of Warehouse 13

In the first of several Warehouse 13 panels this weekend at the Centennial Ballroom II-III on Friday, Eddie McClintock, Joanne Kelly, and John-Paul Nickel entertained us and gave us insights into their characters. The audience welcomed all of the panelists enthusiastically. McClintock took video of the audience cheering for him and chanting “Eddie, Eddie.” As we chanted, McClintock felt compelled to take his shirt off and spike it like a football. Some of us were disappointed that he didn’t decide

Two X-Files Veterans on Mystery in their Careers and the Show

Two X-Files Veterans on Mystery in their Careers and the Show

By

The life of an actor parallels the life of an X-Files character in a lot of ways, according to stars Jerry Hardin and Nicholas Lea as they spoke to a nearly full room Friday afternoon in the Hilton Grand Ballroom West. As character actors and as occasional guest stars, both related to the highs and lows of not necessarily knowing the mysteries behind their characters, or whether they’d ever even show up again. “Acting is a career of dealing with
