Ajay’s First Day At Comic-Con
So yesterday was my first full day of San Diego Comic-Con, and what a day it was!
The first thing we did was hit the floor to record some links for Canada AM on the floor–just going over what Comic-con is for anyone out there who’s a total n00b with regards to geek culture.
Then we went off to the Lionsgate press line where we waited for two hours before I managed to get interviews with the Hunger Games cast–including her awesomness, Jennifer Lawrence. I also got to talk to the director Francis Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, and Willow Shields, who of course plays Prim.
Funny thing: Elijah Wood was walking the carpet at the same time to promote his two upcoming genre films, The Last Witch Hunter and Cooties. I was super excited to talk to him again, because both films look great and I hosted his panel at FanExpo last summer. Somehow in the madness of the press line his handler took him past me because I was next in line for Jennifer Lawrence. So at one point I was literally standing in between Katniss Everdeen and Frodo Baggins. Sadly, Wood got pulled before I could talk to him. That’s the kind of mayhem you’ll get at SDCC.
The rest of the day was spent shooting throws with Teddy. so be sure to watch the show tonight as it’s the first time we’ve ever shot an episode of InnerSpace entirely at SDCC while it’s still happening.
Now I’m off to interview Bitten’s Laura Vandervoort and hopefully get a seat in the Star Wars panel in Hall H! Jealous?!?
