First there was the Stargate panel Thursday afternoon at San Diego Comic-Con … then there was the party!
All work and no play makes Stargate fans grumpy, so Stargate Command and Legion M pulled out the stops for a celebration at the Harbor House. Fans attending the convention were invited to stop by for a change to hang out, meet some fellow fans, and mingle with the cast of Stargate Origins.
First up was a trip downstairs, where Skybound Entertainment was live-streaming a special Stargate hour on its Gamma Ray channel. First on the couch was Stargate Command editor Kieran Dickson, who talked about the return of Stargate and the launch of MGM’s digital platform last fall.“Catherine”) and Philip Alexander (“Beal”) were there, along with Aylam Orian (“Brücke”), Shvan Aladdin (“Wasif”), Daniel Rashid (“Kasuf”), and Sarah Navratil (“Eva”).
These folks were so much fun to meet in person, as they finally came face-to-face with viewers who have been watching their work since Origins made its debut in February. (And you know what? Just about every one of them speaks with a different accent than their character.)
I also met the great Sam Maggs, a long-time Stargate fan (and GateWorlder!) who hosted us for a live-streaming conversation at the Nerdist House on Friday morning.
When the Origins posters came out the cast was ready! The six of them lined up to sign autographs (to be distributed to fans at the Midway screening end of the night), in a kinetic atmosphere with jokes flying and fans taking pictures.Also on hand: the Anubis guard himself! Accompanied by his own cosplaying Samantha Carter as his handler, this fan turned up in a stunning Jaffa costume that stole the show. Cue the photo ops — lots and lots of photo ops!
