Cyprus Comic Con
« on: September 02, 2017, 12:57:47 CDT »
Believe it or not, today there was a Comic Con in Cyprus!

Headline attractions were from GoT, Hafpor Julius Bjornsson ("The Mountain") and Milto Yerolemou (Syrio Forel -- he also gave "water dancing" lessons!)

There was also Gerald Home who played in Return of the Jedi -- he was Tessek in Jabba's palace and then a Mon Calamari officer next to Ackbar. His Q and A was absolutely brilliant, and a very good insight into what it's like to act behind a mask -- plus lots of titbits about Return of the Jedi and the other cast members. It was also a good reminder that the success of movies is due to everyone, not only the stars! He only had nice things to say about Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and, especially, Harrison Ford -- he's a big fan of Ford's! The Brits among you may also remember him as the original Mr. Muscle :)

The Q and A with Bjornsson was very entertaining -- the guy is absolutely huge, but also very funny. Of course everyone was trying to get some clues about what will happen in Season 8, but, alas, the secret is not out yet... His favourite co-star is Lena Heady, whom he described as absolutely lovely :)

No Gatch or BoTP -- I'm tempted to get a BoTP costume for next year, just to rekindle interest!

They were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Naturally they became heroes -- Princess Leia Organa of Alderaan.
