We took some pictures of Mr. Rhys-Davies, while he was sitting at his signing table. He was very interactive and waved at us. Later that day he snuck upon us and we had a little chat. Unfortunately we could not attend his panel and Liv regretted that she did not go for a photo or an autograph. Luckily, Monopoly Events gave her a second chance and at Comic Con Manchester 2022, Liv went for an autograph and she also did a picture (or 6). Mr. Rhys-Davies insisted on doing a picture with Carola too. We also both attended his panel with Bernhard Hill.
