Stargate Convention

If you don’t know this already, you might as well know it now — I love Stargate!  SG-1 and Atlantis are two of my all-time favourite shows and I wish they were still in production.

Anyhow, this past weekend there was a Stargate convention in my hometown of Vancouver so I decided to go for one day with a friend of mine.  Neither of us had been to a con before but I would definitely go to another one!  I had an absolute blast!  I was lucky enough to see Joe Flanigan (John Sheppard), David Hewlett (Rodney McKay) and Paul McGillion (Carson Beckett) on stage together.  Those guys crack me up on television but they are even funnier in real life!  I haven’t laughed so much in a long time!

And of course, Paul randomly switched to his Scottish accent from time to time, especially when talking about his turtles. =)

It’s nice to know that they all seem like they would jump at the chance to do more Stargate projects (like movies).  If only the business end of things would work out!  Although David Hewlett was joking that he would make a movie himself if he could just collect all the action figures. (With two Sheppards so they could fight each other and two Becketts so one could die with one still left alive). =)

All three guys were awesome and hilarious.

Unfortunately, it was hard to get a decent picture.  But at least in this one you can see who they are:

After the three guys, Jewel Staite came on stage.  She was funny too, but in a calmer way.

All in all, I had a really great time and it was definitely worth the money.  It was supposed to be the last official Vancouver Stargate con, but hopefully I’ll get to go to another convention in the future with some Stargate people there, even if it’s not purely a Stargate con.
