Meeting "Louis"! [Aug. 22nd, 2010|06:35 pm]

[Tags|, ]

Next week is the SFX HobbyStar Convention in Toronto (ie, where I got to meet Michael in 2008.) I'm only planning to go for one day this year but there are good guests, some with SV associations: the always lovely James Marsters, Tahmoh Penikett (cloned for Lex's silver hotpants army!) and just added, Ryan Robbins.

Robbins has done the rounds of all the Canada-filmed shows (SPN, BSG, Caprica) building up his fannish cred. In SV S3, he appeared in "Exile" playing Lex's island hallucination "Louis." It was an interesting performance. Louis is alternately menacing and seductive towards Lex.

Was this bit improvised? I would love to know how Robbins perceived his character's motivation in this moment - I know what I'd be thinking!

If Ryan's signing, I'm going to try & elicit a Michael-story! (Hopefully it will make a nice change for him after several 100 BSG questions.)

He's a ubiquitous sci-fi fellow! Haven't seen Sanctuary yet but it seems to be getting quite a following.

I think he'll be shocked and delighted to get a Smallville question! And wow, Michael looks amazing in that first cap. Tom and Michael both looked their delicious best at the beginning of S3. Good times. :)

It's amazing how sexy Exile is, even without a Clex scene - both boys so scorching hot!

Louis practically nuzzles Lex's shoulder so I wonder if RR knew of SV's rep for fabulous homoeroticism before appearing?

Also curious if Michael tickled Tahmoh P. in their scene but might not be able to work that into a question! Didn't TP once mention that he enjoyed his scenes with Tom?

I know TP was interviewed in Smallville Magazine #22, but I've only seen the nice things he said about Erica. If you find the quote you're thinking of, I'd love to see it.

Oh, I must be thinking of the Erica quotes - I remembered him being complimentary & my Tom-brain redirects all compliments to the Big Guy!

Oh that's great! You're going to a Con as well? Awesome. I do hope you get a good Michael story from Ryan---and yes, I'll be that will be a refreshing question for him! I bet you'll end up with a doozy!

Have an awesome time!

Yep, it's a huge Con with big ticket guests like William Shatner but hopefully the folks I'm there to see won't have too long a line!

Is your Con a bit more intimate, Stargate folks only? Should be a good chance to hear some great stories!

Shatner! Cool. I think he's such a hoot. He's on Twitter too, did you know? He's got horses and Tweeted that spending the day riding them is a Zen experience.

Now that's a guy after my own heart. :-D

Have you seen this hilarious photo? "Shatner photobombs unsuspecting StarTrek fans:" http://blastr.com/2010/08/image-of-the-day-shatner.php?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter\\

Oh, and yes, it is just a Stargate SG-1, Atlantis, and SGU Con.

Apparently Shatner dictates his tweets to an assistant, who fits them into the 140 character format - how fabulous is that?!

That photo is hilarious!

Your Con sounds like a blast - have fun!

Hope you have a fun time at the con, and get a good Michael story to share. :) Seems like pretty much everyone from SV has a Michael story. lol

Thanks, hon! Since Ryan got to be half naked & chase a half naked Michael around, I'm hoping he will have a story about THAT!

Oh, I had forgotten that Ryan Robbins was Loius! He does play my favourite character in Sanctuary though.

Obviously he couldn't resist the urge to fondle some naked Michael, and who can blame him?

I do hope he has a Michael-story! Maybe they bonded in the makeup trailer whilst being shaved/backcombed. Sympathy over having to undergo lengthy hair-based procedures, that sort of thing.

You would hope that being half-naked with a half-naked Michael would be a fond memory for him!

Sanctuary seems to be taking off - Robin Dunne had a big line-up at a Con I went to in July. I thought "oh, who's that cute teenager?" but I see he's 34!
