Our photo op with Grant Imahara! Unfortunately my XKCD science tshirt didn’t come in on time :(
So my GF and I weren’t sure if we were going to go and see Burn right away on the first day, but we ran into one of her friends who had gotten a pic of him at his autograph table and just seeing him in the pic made us go “Okay, no, we have to do this NOW.”
So we went to find his autograph table but he wasn’t there… so we hung around for a while, and he eventually showed up for his next autograph session.
He was a goofball from the start. He was talking to the people who were escorting him, but as soon as he saw the small line waiting for him already (I think there were maybe a dozen of us?) he grinned and said something along the lines of “Oh, who is this queue for? I want to join in!” and he came right into the line area and pretended to line up behind a girl a few people away from us, who looked like she was about to have a heart attack (Jules tells me later that he apparently touched her back or something, hence the panic).
So then he just kinda giggles and moves out of the line and to his table, and the autographs start. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to buy one of the pics he had there, so I pulled out my Torchwood DVDs and my River Song journal. My journal is something I started last year when I met the first three members of the Torchwood cast… I asked them for any kind of nice statement or advice or something to write in, as I’d been having a shit time for a long time with my bad anxiety and lack of self esteem and self-confidence.
When we got to the table, there was only one photo of Owen, and it only took me a few seconds to realize that it was a still from Reset, literally seconds before (*SPOILERS*) Owen gets shot and killed (the first time, anyway). So I was like ?!?!?! Oh hell no! haha.
Burn was taking a long time with each person, which was amazing. When we met Karl Urban last year, they rushed us through so fast we barely even got to say hello, but Burn was spending at least a couple of minutes with every person.
When it was my turn I panicked a little but I was okay once I got talking. He saw my Torchwood DVDs right away and jokingly said “Oh you’re one of THOSE strange people,” and giggled, to which I proudly told him yes. I told him that I hadn’t even known what Torchwood was at first, but that my GF had got me to watch it, and that within about ten minutes, Owen was my favourite character, after which I’m pretty sure he teasingly called me crazy (the details are a little hazy already since I was so !!!!!!!).
