"MacGyver" was (and still is) one of Liv's favorite TV shows ever. You can imagine how happy she was when Richard Dean Anderson himself was announced for FACTS 2016. At first she only bought a photo op, but eventually she also went for an autograph. Carola and Liv attended both panels in Ghent. At Dutch Comic Con 2018, Liv attended both panels. Carola was there for one, but during the other she got a tattoo!
