Interview with Sean Maher
Maher told Confessions of a Pop Culture Addict about his first San Diego Comic-Con experience:
I had no idea that [this sort of fandom] existed. My first experience with [fandom] was at Comic Con San Diego in the middle of shooting Serenity, so we were half way finished. All of us went down [to the convention], and Joss didn’t tell anybody we were coming. He had a little clip from the movie and he was on the stage talking and he said, “I have nine surprises for you” and the whole place went “Gahhhhhhh!” He named our names one by one and I walked down to the stage. All the other actors have been doing conventions, but I had no idea. So I walked on stage and grabbed Morena Baccarin’s hand and she said “Pretty wild, right?” and I said “Oh my God!” I swear to God that they were screaming so loud that I felt wind. Then we went back to work on Monday, but I had no idea that it was resonating so strongly with people.
Things from Another World posted video of Sean Maher and the cast at the Firefly 10th anniversary panel at San Diego Comic-com.
