We are both big fans of "The Vampire Diaries" and especially of "The Originals". Daniel Gillies plays Elijah Mikaelson in both of these series and we were so happy when he was announced for Bloody Night Con 2018. We sang our special Elijah song for months and at Bloody Night Con we did a photo op and we attended all of his panels. You can imagine how happy we were when Dutch Comic Con also announced Daniel as a guest, just a few months later. At Dutch Comic Con, we attended his panels. Carola went for a selfie and Liv had an autograph and a selfie! At FACTS Spring 2023, we attended Daniel's panel on the Sunday, although we already saw a lot of them at previous cons. It's always fun to see Gillies in a panel and once again we had a lot of fun. We also went to give him some 'stroopwafels' and he was so happy with those, that he jumped up and to give a hug!
