One of the best things about San Diego Comic-Con–aside from the announcements, the sneak peaks, and the exclusive footage–are all the interviews with actors across the board of television and movies. The interview schedule for all these actors must be fairly grueling; they move from interview to panel to interview (and maybe to another panel if they’re part of multiple projects.) But as a fan, I’m thankful to all these stars for their hard work and it’s nice to get to know a little bit more about the people behind my favorite fictional characters. As I said in my previous Comic-Con post, I didn’t attend SDCC, but I did read about and watch a lot of interviews and panels with some of my favorite casts–plus there are plenty of gif-sets circulating Tumblr.
From all that I’ve seen, I learned some new things about the performers on my favorite shows. For instance, some actors are much bigger geeks than I would have guessed–the two that come to mind are Charlie Carver (who plays Ethan on Teen Wolf) and Rob Kazinsky (Warlow on True Blood and Chuck Hansen in Pacific Rim.) These two might actually be geekier than a lot of the fans walking the floor of Comic-Con. Seriously, SDCC is a great time to understand that the people behind all these fantastic characters in movies and television are people too–wonderful, beautiful people that I’m sure any fan would love to hang out with. For me, here are the actors/full casts that I fell in love with a little bit more through SDCC 2013.
