Jensen Ackles arrived at his meet and greet to find a Tupperware container of chocolate chip cookies at the foot of his chair, courtesy of a thoughtful fan. They turned out to be one of his favorites (along with the tsnicker doodles that his mom bakes). Yes, this is essential information.
Jensen Ackles’ meet and greet started out a bit strangely. For some reason, they set up two high chairs for Jensen instead of the customary one. Jensen came in, cocked an eyebrow, then attempted to straddle them both, much to the amusement of the gathered fans. He then gave up and scoffed.
There were a few more people in the room than usual at Jensen’s Q and A this afternoon – his parents, sister and brother in law. What a treat to be able to experience them experiencing Jensen ‘doing his thing’ and fans appreciating him for it.
Jensen Ackles started his semi-private Q & A with a question for the gathered fans – “Has anyone embarrassed themselves yet at the con?” He seemed certain that Misha must have accomplished at least a bit of embarrassment (we wonder why….)
Just as many of us want to share the awesomeness (yes, that’s a word…) of Supernatural with friends, we wish we could take all of them along on our con weekends so they could experience the fun, frivolity and sense of family – it’s hard to describe otherwise. The celebrity guests feel pretty much the same, so many of them took advantage of the “local” LA location of the Burbank SPN con to invite friends and family. Richard Speight Jr. brought old friends, fellow actors and his proud father-in-law. Guy Bee brought Samuel Colt – or at least the talented actor who played him on Supernatural. And Jensen Ackles brought his friend Chris to the semi-private Q & A.
