I went to Weekend of Hell and it was amazing! I was very happy when Weekend of Hell announced Lochlyn Munro as a guest. I already knew him for his roles in Freddy vs. Jason and Scary Movie. But a few weeks ago I also started watching Riverdale. (As a true binge watcher, I watched everything I could before going to Weekend of Hell). And I love the show! I didn't expect it. But I tried one episode. And I never stopped watching. I even watched it while going to work (by train) on my phone. Every second of spare time, there was Riverdale!
So, before gong to Weekend of Hell I already knew I wanted to do a photo op or a selfie with Lochlyn. It was just a matter of deciding when to do that. The first day was a buy one! There was a lot to see and explore. And Lochlyn's photo op was just 5 minutes before Bruce Campbell's panel. So I decided to way until day 2. On the schedule, there was no panel for Lochlyn Munro, that really was a pity! So if I wanted to meet him/ talk, my I really had to go for an autograph or picture!
On day 2: the pressure was on! I had to make a decision. No more second changes. And because of that, of course I started to get nervous. I walked around and set myself an ultimatum: Decided before 12 o'clock what to do. Liv wasn't there at Weekend of Hell, so I was on my own. I walked by a few times. And at such moments, I always have an excuse! 'Oh I think someone is already going there', 'Oh I think he's busy, etc. etc. I'm not sure why, but I'm just scared to go. I don't know what to say. Or do. But finally, finally I just went over there.
And I'm so glad I did! He was awesome. I walked over there and he started talking right away. He just did a con in Paris before Weekend of Hell. And he traveled with his family to Dortmund after that con. I told him I was from the Netherlands and he said he had been to Eindhoven once. But never attended a Dutch con. He now just started doing cons in Europe. So we chatted a bit and spoke about the movies/ series he played in and talked about cons. I was so so happy that I went over there to speak to him. He's really great, So If you're ever at a con and he's there: Take the opportunity! As you can see below, I also got the selfie :).
I was already so happy that I met Lochlyn. But the day got even better. I walked by the panel area later and suddenly saw he was doing a panel after all. I missed a bit, but as soon I saw it, I went to see the panel! He talked about Freddy vs. Jason (And pronouncing "Voorhees" the wrong way), told party stories, Canada, beer and humor.
