Carol, this interview was at 2pm, quite a while after the panel. I had over 4 hours to kill before I had to catch a train, so I just wandered around --took in the exhibits, got a snack --and I just happened to see them coming across the lobby with a small entourage. They stopped right in the middle of the atrium and nobody really paid any attention to them. Other than the handlers and the camera and sound guys, there were only about 10 other people there at first. It was just quirky luck that I caught them when I did.

I don't believe it!!! I'm sure you were calm, cool and collected. Sort of ho-hum, this happened while I was walking thru the Javits Center.

Just like I'll be in June in England. :whistle: When I went to Comicon I liked Moonlight but I hadn't fallen into the fandom head first yet. I just lived in NY. I was equally excited to see Brendan Fraser.

Thanks for sharing Lilly! You're a lucky lady to have experienced that moment! The pics are just delightful!

Well, as usual the interviewer seems to be giggling rather school-girlishly also... and he!!, Lilly, I'm giggling just LOOKING at your pics and hearing your story! HE just seems to have that effect...

Thank you SOOO much for taking these pics and for sharing them with us... that little moment could NOT have happened to a nicer person, Sweetie.

And Lucky, I would like to have heard YOUR reaction to the phone call too... I'm guessing there was some squeeing going on, on BOTH sides of the wire!! :giggle:

Who wouldn't babble like a 12-year-old school girl on a sugar high looking at that??? :hyper:


:hyper: I'm babbling incoherently just looking at the pics..can't imagine how I would act in person. Gahhh..my legs would turn to jelly and I would :thud: for sure...

These shots are just spectacular, Lilly. I have to ask..what kind of camera were you armed with?? I think I gotta get me one....these look professional.

It's been said before, but it strikes me every time I see these pics (once I've come down from the squeeing of course :whistle: ), but maaaaaaaan, that interviewer chick is tall.

LOL, Red!

I 'm guessing she's wearing heels, but yeah, she'd still be tall if she 's taller than Alex in the pics.... unless his press people are lying about his height and he's really, like Alan Ladd, really short... :angel:

I often have the same reaction to these pics. She is very tall indeed! :biggrin:

Alex really is about 6'1" and Jason is just about 6' tall. This gal had to be at least 6'2" -- not sure about the heels, though. For some reason I just wasn't looking at her feet. :snicker:

I went and found a photo..... it looks like she was wearing flat boots with no more than a 1" heel.

Um, you should see the pictures I'm not posting -- the ones where my hands were shaking so badly everything is a complete blur! :lol:

As for the camera, these were shot with a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T100 from 15-20 feet away.

I just bought a Sony DSC-H3 with an additional Telephoto lens for England. I hope to do a tenth as well as your shots.

They were taken at the 2008 NY ComicCon during the "Best Week Ever" Interview that took place a couple of hours after the Moonlight panel. This series shows features Alex -- ever the professional -- and his reaction to passing Stormtroopers.

Okay, what is wrong with all of these people?!?!? No one is even looking at Alex or Jason. How can that be? :sigh:
