Liv was over the moon when Sean Astin was announced for Comic Con Amsterdam. She is a big fan of "The Goonies" and of the "The Lord of the Rings" franchise. She bought a photo op ticket for Sean beforehand and at the con Carola impulsively followed. We also attended the panel with Sean and Sylvester McCoy. A few months later Liv met Sean a second time at FACTS, where she got an autograph and talked politics with him. She also attended his panel.
