FanMeet – Andrea – April 10, 2016 – Emerald City Comicon (Seattle, Washington)
It was a truly surreal experience meeting her. We got a photo with her first. Later on in the day, we also got an autograph with her. Too bad it wasn’t a meet-and-greet because I wish to have talked to her longer. We asked her how she was liking Seattle, and she told us she wanted to stay longer because she really liked her stay here. When she signed the photo, she thought she had messed up or something and was concerned about the Sharpie ink drying. She told us to make sure it dried so it won’t smudge, and that was just so sweet and considerate of her! She is so incredibly kind and beautiful. It was definitely a memorable experience.
I gotta say spending all that money going to Comicon was definitely worth it! We also got to meet Rose McIver. She is so incredibly sweet in person! Her accent is really cute too. I love accents. It’s weird I know. Whenever I meet someone with an awesome accent, I get mesmerized. It’s probably because I don’t have one myself. I mean, yeah I have an American accent, but that doesn’t really count. Because I live in America. You know what I mean?
Meeting Rose was amazing. She was also so real with her fans as well. The group ahead of us in line had two little boys, and she was so sweet to them.

We also had a conversation with her and asked her how she was liking Seattle, and she told us she wanted to stay longer because she really liked her stay here. What really struck me was how when she signed the photo, she thought she had messed up or something and was concerned about the Sharpie ink drying. She told us to make sure it dried so it won’t smudge, and that was just so sweet and considerate of her! Things like this makes the experience so memorable. I really like how she was very real and authentic.
You could see that sparkle in her eyes, and feel the energy in the air. It was such a surreal moment meeting our favorite actresses in person. One moment you are watching them on screen and seeing them in a photo; next thing you know, they are RIGHT in front of you. In real life. Looking exactly how they do on screen, only slightly different. It’s really surreal.
I am so thankful to have had this opportunity. I wish I could replay it, relive it over again. Sure I get to visit the actual town where they film, but with things like this you are always at the wrong moment at the wrong time. You can miss them by just a mere hour. Fate had it that they came to Seattle. And we actually were able to buy the tickets to attend and meet them. The line could have been too long that we missed the chance, or tickets could have been sold-out. Instead, everything fell into place perfectly, and we had an incredible experience.
Big thanks to Andrea for sharing her story!
