I was shocked, because most actors I've met and worked with resemble (mannerisms- and personality-wise) their characters at least a little. This was not the case at all with IronE. The dude was really down to earth and seemed genuinely happy to meet fans. He didn't even sit behind his table, he stood up and shook hands with and hugged every fan who came up. You would have thought you'd known the guy.

This was unlike David Yost, the original blue Power Ranger. David really seemed like he was hating life, even with Walter Jones (the original black Power Ranger) jumping up and running to David's table to jump in his fans' photos. Walter even took a fan's skateboard and skated around a while, and seemed real excited to be there.

Then came the grand finale. @SteelCityMom can probably guess who I met.

Yeah. Carol. Melissa freakin' McBride. When my girlfriend told me Melissa would be there, I was dead set on going. I brought something specifically for her, which really took her aback, and she was saying she felt horrible for keeping it and couldn't. But I told her I had brought it specifically for her since she was far and away my favorite character on the show (my brother and girlfriend jumped in and told her I was coming to the con just for that). She took it, then signed autographs for all of us, and kept us around a good 10-15 minutes goofing off with is (a lot longer than others who had gone up). She was really funny and way more awesome than I had expected, and again, nothing like Carol. She and IronE were real testaments to the acting ability on the show. After her episode on The Talking Dead, I expected a mild-mannered, calm, polite woman. She was energetic, funny, and really quirky. When she asked if we were gonna do the photo op later, we told her it was sold out, so she quietly asked her handler if she could squeeze us in if we got in line, and the handler said we could. So an hour later, we got to jump in for the photo op, and I went home with plenty of Carol memorabilia. And a hug.

Never before had I been starstruck, but I admittedly was very much so this time. And now I'll be twice as pissed if they kill her off.

Unfortunately, though, we didn't get to meet Danai Gurira, though we did spot her walking around a lot. We left her alone though, since that seemed like it was a kind of break time for the actors and actresses.

So, yeah. Yesterday happened.
Man, what an opportunity! Sounded really fun. You just knew McBride would be cool in person. As for Yost's behavior, check out his Wiki page. Seems like the guy had to deal with major psychological torment on the set.

I don't doubt it at all. My brother told me about all that. I didn't really blame the guy, as my brother pointed out, he probably hates the fact that he is only known for the one thing that caused him so much trauma. Having grown up with Power Rangers and watching the original series, it sucked to see a childhood hero so unlike how I knew him.

T-Dog was my fave. I was so sad when he was killed off the show.

... Devil worshiper.



I think meeting her would have turned you around on the character.
