Michael & Smallville & Misha at DragonCon! Part 2 [Sep. 7th, 2011|08:24 pm]

Michael always gives fans great stories to tell at Cons. I've seen people tweeting excitedly that he sang to them, loved their costumes, jumped into their photos. But my favourite fan encounter was told by Michael himself at a panel. The Marriott hotel has glass elevators that overlook the lobby. Michael described getting into an elevator, a fan noticing him and doing a double take. His eyes met Michael's. Then the elevator started to rise and Michael said that they still didn't break eye contact - the elevator's sailing up 40 floors, the fan is craning his neck upwards and Michael is staring down at him. (Very Lex-like of him!)

These cuties invite you in!

They had so many jokes in this panel about Joe and Chris not getting any questions that I was tempted to get up and ask Chris a question--was he taking photos at D*C for his blog. I didn't want to put him on the spot, though!

I also loved when Michael noticed the woman with her eyes closed over on the side, so he snuck up on her. He was very sweet when she startled awake, though, and ended up giving her a shoulder rub!

That was so sweet! I can't imagine resting my eyes for a minute and then opening them with Michael right there!

Ooh, good question! Hope he posts a DCon blog - that would be awesome!

It's obvious that Michael goes out of his way to make sure every one of his fans goes home with a special memory. I've heard stories of celebs who barely look up while signing pics, for whom it's a chore to be grumpily endured, but it seems like Michael genuinely enjoys his fan encounters, and even if he doesn't, he makes sure his fans do. He is incredibly generous, surprisingly open, and always entertaining.

Those Doctor Who kids are too cute! I wish someone had taken me to Cons as a kid!

Misha reminds me of Michael in the way that he seems to enjoy himself at Cons, and always gives the fans a good time. Misha, Mark, and Jim were also all on the SDCC panel for SPN, and the banter between them was hilarious. Love the Mark Harmon story! I've been a fangirl of his forever.

It touches my heart that Michael and Tom can be separated by their busy lives for months at a time, and that Michael can be gone from the show for years, but the moment they're together again, the bond between them is as strong as ever. Tom talked about it in that video clip they released to promote the finale, and Michael talks about it here. I just adore them both so much.

OMG, that Michael and Chris story is priceless! Some people wouldn't share that, but of course Michael does. hee! It sounds like he was in fine form, in both of his panels. He and Laura are particularly fun together. Thank you for this detailed report. Once again, I feel like I was there because of your gift for storytelling. ♥

Everyone was pouring out of a screening, then stopped en masse to take photos! It was cute: the kids posed proudly.

Part of the fun of waiting in line for his panels was hearing about other fans encounters. A Bruins fan wanted to pose with the inflatable Stanley Cup and said Michael had teased her relentlessly for wearing a Boston T. (Tom would probably approve though!) I think he totally gets it because he can still be thrilled by meeting his own favourites, like Christopher Lloyd.

Misha reminds me of Michael in the way that he seems to enjoy himself at Cons, and always gives the fans a good time. Misha, Mark, and Jim were also all on the SDCC panel for SPN, and the banter between them was hilarious. Love the Mark Harmon story!
Misha had huge line-ups and I never saw him flag or look less than cheerful...and he was wandering around everywhere, exploring the Con. He & Michael ended up at the same party apparently, which will delight the small group of fans that 'ships them!

The Mark Harmon love was super-cute. Mark S. says MH is too shy to do Cons but he'd certainly get a big reception of he did!

I love that a big Tom hug got Michael feeling "at home" again! ♥

I am VERY jealous of the lucky PA who got to walk in on that scene!

He and Laura are particularly fun together.
She's got a dry sense of humour. When Michael was joking about the baby: "Lex doesn't cry!", Laura says "I think Lex would cry if had to say goodbye to Clark..." Welcome aboard TeamClex, Laura!

Thank you for this detailed report. Once again, I feel like I was there because of your gift for storytelling.
Thank you for reading & being so kind :)
