I’ve been attending Sci-Fi/TV & Film Collector conventions (of various types) since 1988. Mostly film fairs and exhibitions. My first ‘proper’ con was a Doctor Who event in Guildford in 1990. Sophie Aldred and Fraser Hines were the guests. I didn’t really go for me, but more for my brother who is a big fan. I have always been more of a Trekkie than a Whovian. He was 13, and me being the big brother took him along.
Initially, I used to go to events to buy merchandise for my collection, but then a good friend convinced me to go to the US with him and another friend, to attend a con run by a friend of his. We ended up going back to this same event year after year, becoming more involved each time. It was there that I was bitten by the autograph collecting bug. I met my first Star Trek actors and realised how much I enjoyed meeting them, and in some cases, getting to know them. Since then I have met many actors and actresses from a wide range of different TV shows and movies. It is my intention to bring to you my experiences, both the good and bad.
My main addictions are Star Wars, Star Trek, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Arrow and a few other shows such as Stargate, BSG and LOST. Favourite comedies include MASH and Father Ted.
I am a musicals geek too as I also have a love for musicals, both stage and screen. My favourite is Les Miserables but I also like West Side Story, Joseph, Mamma Mia and many others.
I tend to post about all the various events I attend, actor meet and greets, photo ops etc. and I will blog about anything else from the world of Geek such as launch events and signings as well as my thoughts on current film releases here and there; the list is endless. I also occasionally post about anything Les Mis and musical related.
Live long and prosper, stay shiny and May the Force be with you!
