There are something like six for Jolene Blalock. One, though, I'm sure is really her personal page, because the profile is set to private and the profile pic is the same one she uses on her Twitter account.
Jolene does have here own (not fan made) My Space page and a twitter (which she hasn't used in ages) Connor has no web presence that I know of. He does have a web site, but that hasn't been updated in 5 years.
Someone told me Connor had stalker problems. Someone told me -- don't recall who -- some got personal info (IIRC, e-mail address, and I think either his phone number or home address). Some woman was e-mailing pictures of herself -- let's just charitably say they were inappropriate).

As a result Connor has absolutely no interest at all in having an online presence.
Jinx I also remember that story that his stalker had also followed him into a grocery store.you can't blame Connor for not having any interest of having an.online presence after something like that happened to him.

I don't blame him a bit for feeling the way he does about the 'net. It's just that so many actors out there use the Internet to promote themselves. ... he's reluctant to do the same because of the trouble a handful of ***holes gave him.

Oh, that's terrifying. Are we overstepping a line by suggesting him for parts? I hope not. Our intentions are pure.

Yeah, I've been following Jolene on Twitter. The last thing she posted was a picture of her bulldog. Sometimes she'll go a while without posting, then she'll get a fashion shoot or something and post pics from that.

As for Connor--yikes!! I mean...there are fans who are rabidly devoted like us--but we know that there are limits, that we don't really know him, etc.

And then, there's bats**t crazy, like stalkers who send inappropriate photos to a married man they don't even know. I know it happens, but it just blows my mind.

If I ever got a celebrity's phone number, I doubt I'd even have to the guts to call it. I might talk a big game beforehand, but if I made it as far as dialing I'd probably panic and hang up.

Any way, I can't blame him for being gunshy about having a web presence, but honestly, anyone who's determined enough can get basically any information they want any way. Sad but true.

Maybe if these flash mobs prove any degree of successful, he'll see how the internet can be used forces of good.

Nah, I wouldn't worry about it. We're using it for something good. As long as we don't do anything crazy and behave like mature adults while showing our admiration for a favorite actor, I don't see how we can make anyone mad. You know how bands and clubs and radio stations, etc. have "street teams"? That's all we're doing...we're just doing it on the web.

Speaking of which--Where TF is everybody?? There are only 11 comments over there!!

I didn't know that !!! It's creepy !!! And that explains a lot : why he doesn't want to have an online presence, and why he didn't want his housesale was in the newspaper and all. Some fans (if we call them fans) are very sick...

I think the same, Aquarius. It's not like we did some researches to have some personnal information. We stay on the work side, not private side. At worse, it's promotional.

Ps : I'd like to post a comment too, but i think i need the help from someone to write something. You all know my english is crappy. And i don't want to post something bad. So if you give me a message "prototype", it would be great. God, i'm feeling embarrassed to ask you. I'm so Sorry to bother you with that.

Re: T.H.U.G.life: It's Trip-alicious!

Here's what I wrote:

Hi. I see Ridley Scott is planning to direct "The Forever War" by Joe Haldeman. That book is one of the best I have ever read and I am eager to see it.

I just wanted to plant a bug in Mr. Scott's ear re: casting. I just want to say that Connor Trinneer (Star Trek Enterprise, Stargate Atlantis) would be an excellent choice for this film. He is well known in the sci-fi community and has many fans worldwide. Connor is classically trained, photogenic and is very natural before the camera. His first guest role post-Enterprise was in Numb3rs episode, "Toxin."

Thank you for your attention.

My Name Here

I put the e-mail address into my own e-mail contacts list...

ETA: SciFi has scheduled the SGA episode "Allies," (Connor's voice is dubbed) for April 13, 5pm EDT.
Then on April 16, there's an ENT mini-marathon starting at 10am EDT: Precious Cargo, The Catwalk, Dawn, Stigma, Cease Fire, Future Tense, Carbon Creek.

Its such a pity that Connor's experience of the internet has been spoiled by a small minority, definitely can't blame him. It must be very intimidating, even for a male celebrity, to be stalked, especially as close to home as a grocery store. I just hope his dislike of self-promotion on the internet isn't affecting his career too much.

I've left my reply over on Reelzchannel.com and am working on my email to Scott Free.

After reading all this conversation, I left a comment on Reelz chanel too...

Anyway, if all goes well, I'll be meeting Connor next week-end. He is coming to Greece for the Terraformers event and I feel quite intimidated myself...
Being a rather new fan, I wanted to ask him if he would consider visiting sometimes and leaving a message on his fan pages , but now, reading about his bad experience I am not so sure. Do you think it would be too much to bring this subject up?

I advise against it.

At Seatrek I brought up the suggestion that he use his web site to provide info on his upcoming appearances on TV, etc. because otherwise we had to hope someone would pick up on what he was doing and post it in the forums. Let's just say he didn't actually bite my head off. He didn't seem to be angry with me, but he was definitely agitated -- Internet is clearly a sore subject with him.

Ask about Jasper -- who should be starting kindergarten this fall... they grow up so fast!


Have a great time at TF.
