10. Paul Wesley

On the 10th place we find Paul Wesley! We met Paul in 2017. That's 2 year ago already, time flies! Liv and I both love the Vampire Diaries, so we were thrilled to go to Bloody Night Con in Brussels. At first, Ian Somerhalder was announced as a guest. But when he cancelled, they announced Paul. It was great to meet Paul Wesley, Liv & I both had a photo with him.

7. Violett Beane

We met Violett Beane (Arrow) a while ago already! We visited Arccon in 2016. A convention organized by KLZ events, just like Bloody Night Con. For Violett, it was the first convention she attended. That was nice. She was very enthusiastic and happy. She did everything that people asked her: Sing, dance, challenges: anything.. Nothing was too much. She even danced with the entire public: Coming off the stage and dancing with everyone. Want to know more (and see the video)? Read our article about meeting Violett Beane

Candice King is also known for the Vampire Diaries. It was definitely high on my wish list to meet her. I love how she plays the role of Caroline.

She is such a wonderful person! Read our full story in the article about meeting Candice King

4. Ryan Kelley

We met Ryan Kelley 2 times: Both times were at Wolfcon. Once in 2017 and once in 2019. The first time we met Ryan Kelley, we did a photo op. It was really one of the best photo ops I have done so far. he was super kind and just asked everyone what kind of pose they would like to do. He really took the time. I loved that! Read all about our first time meeting Ryan Kelley. The second time we met Ryan, was at Wolfcon as well. During the press boat trip, we got the chance to interview him. That was really amazing.

1. Meg Foster

The most read this year article about meeting an actor or actress at comic con is the article about Meg Foster. We met Meg Foster at Weekend of Hell in 2016. I went to get an autograph of Lew Temple, I gave him a present (schuimpjes) too. Meg Foster was sitting next to him and noticed that. She was so nice and offered us some chocolate. At that moment Liv told her I had a something for her, she gave her the candy and Meg was just so thankful. Suddenly she said Liv could pick a photo for an autograph and said she wanted to give it to her. Liv said that she wanted to pay for it, but she looked into her eyes and said: "I want to GIVE this to you, because you are so kind".
