Meeting Lana Parilla

2018 is the year of Queens! Earlier this year, we already met "Queen of Scots" Adelaide Kane. And now, we were fortunate enough to get the chance to meet the "Evil Queen", Lana Parilla! Actually I had seen her already (from a large distance) at New York Comic Con last year. I saw her in the "Once Upon a Time" panel with Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis. It was a magical panel. Watching the first episode of the last season. And seeing Lana there. At that point, I really thought that was as good as it gets. I didn't think such a big guest as Lana would come to a con close to us ánd do photo ops and panels. Luckily enough, Dutch Comic Con invited her. And a year after seeing a glimpse of her in New York, I got to do a photo op with her in Utrecht. Unfortunately, I could not be there at New York Comic Con and I could not imagine that a guest as big as Lana would make her way to a convention in Europe soon. Ever since the first episode of "Once Upon a Time", the Evil Queen/Regina has been my favorite female character (favorite male is of course Rumplestiltskin).

Turning the Tables: Maurice Wolbert (DCC)

Well hello, it is time for another look behind the scenes of comic cons. A while ago we did an interview with Mark Dermul, the man behind the mic at the Guest Q&A's at FACTS (Ghent) and we loved the stories he had to tell. A few weeks ago, we had an epic time at the Winter Edition of Heroes Dutch Comic Con and we ran into Maurice, he is the host of (the panels) at Dutch Comic Con. Ever since the first edition, back in 2015, Maurice is the man with the mic on the DCC stage and he is doing a great job.

Meeting Rutger Hauer

Rutger Hauer attended Weekend of Hell! Even though he is a Dutch actor and the Netherlands is not that big, I had never met Rutger before. So I was thrilled to get the opportunity to meet him in Germany. That's right, Rutger is a legend in The Netherlands, but he also made a name for himself in Hollywood. From the moment he was announced I was sure I wanted to meet him. Rutger has acted in a lot of English and Dutch movies an TV series. He well known for "Blade Runner". In this movie he plays the role of Roy Batty, the lovable villain of the movie. But he also played in movies like "Hobo With A Shotgun" (as Hobo), "Batman Begins" (as Earle), "Sin City" (as Roark), "The Hitcher" (as John Ryder), "Blind Fury" (as Nick Parker), "Ladyhawke" (as Navarre) and way more! As for Dutch movies, you might have seen him in "Michiel de Ruyter" (as Maarten Tromp), De Heineken Ontvoering ("21 days: The Heineken Kidnapping", as Freddy Heinken), "Turks Fruit" ("Turkish Delight", as Eric) and so much more.

Hail to the King! Meeting Alan van Sprang

This summer, I started watching the series Reign. Adelaide Kane had been announced a guest for Wolfcon. That triggered both Liv and me to start watching Reign. I loved it from the very first second! I couldn't stop watching. After Wolfcon, Liv & I were discussing who else we would want to see from the series at a con. We were speculating a lot. And our top choices were definitely Alan van Sprang (King Henry) and Craig Parker (Stéphane Narcisse). Later that day, we checked the guest list of Weekend of Hell so far. They already had announced quite some guests, but I didn't remember them all anymore. While scrolling, I noticed a guy who looked like King Henry. I googled him, an it was him! Liv and I screamed and shouted 'King Henry is coming!!'. We were so happy! But because he was announced before we watched Reign, we hadn't noticed it before. So needless to say, we looked forward to meeting Alan a lót! Oh yes I remember that day very well. It was in the midst of the summer and we were doing about Wolfcon. We ended up talking about "Reign" and how much we loved King Henry. I remember saying something like: "How cool would it be if we could meet him at a convention?" At that point that seemed like something impossible...We got in the car and then Carola noticed Alan on the guest list of Weekend of Hell. We were screaming the entire way home.
