Comic Con "Celebrities"

7:58 AM

 It's a funny thing at Comic Con, seeing who people think is a celebrity. Sometimes you'll see swarms of people mobbing some old guy (who was probably on one of the Star Trek series or something) and you know he must be famous, but all you see is...some old guy. And people are freaking out about meeting him. It's just weird. And then on the flip side, when I'm geeking out about seeing Anna Torv or Karl Urban, I can tell other people around me have no idea who they are. Like Leif Tilden, for example. When I was about 8 or 9, I was sooooo into the Ninja Turtles. I had a crush on Donatello, which I know doesn't make a ton of logical sense. Since I didn't want to be "the girl who had a crush on a turtle," I looked up who played Donatello in the live action movie...and it was a guy named Leif Tilden. The point is, I'd probably be the only person in the room excited to meet Leif Tilden. To me, he'd be a "celebrity", and to everybody else he'd just be some dude. But he was once a teenage mutant ninja dude, so that makes him something special.
