Craig Parker ComicPalooza 2013

Craig Parker is a fanboy’s dream. – Wait that sounds much different than the way I meant it.

He’s been in a lot of shows that fanboys follow. Spartacus, Lord of the Rings, Xena, and Legend of the Seeker.

Craig was a live wire. He never sat.  It seemed a shame for him to have a table at his booth. He was constantly talking with people. He was a big cat in a cage or a shark in a pool, he was constantly moving.

After he signed for me, two young ladies walked up in dress from the Legend of the Seeker.  I segued and I asked if he ever thought the show would come back.  It seems there is lot of fan support and clubs still rooting for a comeback. He said no; the time to move a show to another network is extremely short.

Once a show is cancelled, everyone is looking for the next job, much like the rest of us when we get laid off.  He mentioned it would be great but almost impossible at this point.  A shame but totally understandable.
