    It's certainly possible we just caught her on a bad day. I asked her what it was like to work on Everybody Loves Raymond, and she said "fine" and stared at me like I just spit in her eye.

    Or maybe it was that I didn't buy anything....

    :lol:

    I've found that buyin' an autograph will improve a celebrity's mood immensely.

    Except with Brent Spiner.

    We did, through the convention tickets. We got her autograph after her talk.

    I agree about Ben Browder, as I saw him last year at a convention in Melbourne. Was absolute hoot. Didn't get an autograph or photo, hopefully next time, as he loves Australia.

    Nana is one person I was hoping to meet this weekend at a convention in Sydney, but pulled out again. Also will get to meet John de Lancie as he will be there also.

    Saw Tim Russ last time he was in Australia (back in 2003 or 04), very entertaining. Still thinking about seeing either Jonathon Frakes and/or the Voyager Double in August (Tim & Kathryn)

    Had very positive experiences meeting Marc Alaimo, Casey Biggs, Max Grodenchik and Vaughn Armstrong in Chicago last October. They could not have been nicer. Casey Biggs is a total sweetheart and Marc Alaimo is a bit of a flirt! I think it helps to be a reasonably attractive female and not wearing a costume... also, we met them in the hotel's bar...not in the photo or autograph line...casual setting and cocktails helps!

    No idea if he's still into cons or not.

    And thanks for the kind words. I'm a little confused, though...I never wrote anything by the title of "Isolation." ;)

    Must have been your Evil Id Clone.

    Not Trek-related (but others have posted experiences with BSG actors etc) but Peter Mayhew - Chewbacca from Star Wars - is one of the nicest gents I've met. He is also the only actor I've got an autograph from. He was just a cool, funny guy.

    I met David Prowse at a comic book store several years ago. He practically looked me straight in the eyes, and he was sitting down! I asked if he could see out of the Darth Vader mask, and he said no. Apparently, they kept making the lenses darker because they could see his eyes... Really nice guy!

    With very big hands. When we shook, one of his fingers touched my index knuckle. And I'm a big guy myself, but that freaked me out a bit.

    Still very cool guy.

    And his wife is fun, too. When I met them both in Corpus Christi a few years back, she had a t-shirt in the Star Wars style that said "Chewbacca is My Co-Pilot".

    I'd imagine Robert Beltran isn't the sweetest pea.

    I just met Wil Wheaton, Jonathan Frakes, and Brent Spiner last night, and out of the three Brent was particularly warm and engaging, which was a pleasant surprise after reading this thread. He was also selling hugs for $10, have any of you seen him do this?
