Ok, so I’ve been so busy writing my grad school thesis that I forgot to post about me meeting the cast of…FELICITY. I volunteered at the Austin Television Festival last month and got to attend the Felicity: 20 Year Reunion panel. I attended the panel with my freshman year roomie – the one that binged the show with me even though we had actual studying to do. 🙂
First off, I showed up hella early for the line. I was the first person there but it was super hot out (Texas, come on now) so I went to the nearby hotel for some refreshments. I was gone no more than 20 minutes but when I came back there was already like six people in line. Since I knew that the line was going to be outrageous, I just took my place and tried not to fry in the sun. Didn’t help that I was wearing my black “Team Noel” shirt.
I had great conversations with the other fans. A lot of them had only started binging the show on Hulu but there were others who watched it from the original airing and others like myself who caught it a little later. I started watching 10 years ago on DVD.
But the panel was EVERYTHING. I was happy, sad, eager, and just feeling so many emotions at once. I chugged down a mimosa and settled down. Everyone was there, which was amazing! They all looked great! Rob Benedict showed up later for the actual panel. I met him before at a Supernatural convention in Dallas, TX. He and his band are great!
The night before, I got to meet Scott Foley at his Whiskey Cavalier pilot premiere. When I say that I was shaking so hard that my teeth were chattering, I’m not exaggerating. I’m kind of sad that I couldn’t hold still enough to get a decent photo but at least I got to quickly meet him. It was like the scene from Mean Girls where all the animals were attacking at the mall. I asked him about Noelcrane.com and he endorsed me to get the site updated with some new content. Dude, if someone spotted me a couple thousand bucks I would. I absolutely would!
When it came to the audience Q&A segment at the Felicity panel, I rushed my way to the mic because this would probably be my only shot to talk to the cast. I had to take my chance. Here’s what happened:
I reminded Scott Foley about Noelcrane.com and asked Scott Speedman if he’d be back on Animal Kingdom or Grey’s Anatomy. I thought his guest appearance on Grey’s was great. Like I felt the chemistry between him and Meredith so I definitely wanted him to return. Maybe one day…
UPDATE: Here’s the full panel. You can find me around 1:05:03!
All in all, Felicity will forever be one of my favorite television series because everytime I watch it, I connect with it in a different way. I continue to grow with it even though the show premiered 20 years ago! Hopefully one day they’ll get that reunion mini-series going and I can actually have a one-on-one talk with my favorite cast.
’til next time!
