Celebrities are people too!

Comic Con

This is my first ever requested post! Which is pretty exciting to me because that means people are reading my blog! ūüėĬ†I’ve seen things in the media about celebrities not being treated with respect and courtesy. I wanted to share my thoughts that celebrities are people too! And give some serious props to SLC Comic Con attendees!

Celebrities are people too

They have lives and families just like us. Jason Isaacs said it best when he said, “I shop at the grocery store just like you”. With that being said sometimes things come up and they have to cancel. Which is extremely disheartening especially if you had been planning on them and have even bought a photo op with them. This happened to me with Alex Kingston one time. Things can come up and they can’t come, unfortunately sometimes life works out that way. But we can choose to remain hopeful that they will come eventually. Alex came this last con and I was able to get a picture with her then!

Props to SLC Comic Con attendees

And I would like to give serious props to our con go-ers on how we treat the celebrities that come to Salt Lake. We treat our celebrities really well and make sure to show respect and kindness to them!

Stan Lee said about SL Comic Con “You people have the greatest comic con in the world”! And¬†Chris Evans posted on Twitter “Wow….I’ve had the most amazing time at #SLCC15. I’ve been to a few conventions before but I’ve never had the opportunity to interact with the fans on such a personal level. They shared some wonderful stories that I was honored to hear. I’m filled with a overwhelming sense of¬†gratitude. Thank you to all of my loyal, sincere, loving, and passionate fans from the very bottom of my heart. You’ve reminded me how¬†gratuitously lucky I am. #weareallconnected “. Another celebrity,¬†Tom Felton, did a documentary about conventions, he asked in his panel “Why didn’t I come to Salt Lake for the movie? Next time…”

We are obviously doing something right and I just say let’s keep it up so we can keep drawing in amazing celebrities! We ROCK!!

PS- I went to Universal Studios in California and was able to go to the Wizarding World!! I know what my next post will be about!!
