My family went to the Albuquerque Comic-Con today. I couldn't go because I had to work. :-\ I encouraged my husband to go today because they had some actors from The Walking Dead, which is my husband's favorite show. He took his Walking Dead Copendium book to get it signed.
Well, they also had an actor from one of MY favorite shows, The Vampire Diaires! It's the guy who plays an Original, Elijah, Daniel Gillies. My family took a picture with him. I am so excited, and had to share, but I don't know anyone else who is a fan of the show. I have been a fan of TVD ever since I was in middle school in the early 90s, and I read the original trilogy, and then the 4th book. I am not a fan of the newer trilogies, but I love the direction the show is going, despite all the differences. Elijah does not exist in the books.
CLEARLY my family is not thrilled to be posing with this guy. Had I been there, I would have been grinning from ear to ear. I LOVE Elijah. I think he is gorgeous! My husband said that the actor was a really nice guy. I guess they bonded over The Walking Dead. Elijah noticed my husband's book and said that he had just started reading it and loved it! He asked about me since my husband told him I am a fan. He also asked to make sure my kids don't watch TVD, or WD. They don't. They get their vampire/zombie fill through MH! :-) It's sweet that he was concerned about what my children are exposed to.
