For all the fan boys and girls out there including us, Comic Con is one of the most awaited events of the year. It is full of our favorite TV and movie characters, often even dressed up as their characters. The whole event is beyond exciting. But the events we cannot wait for when the time for Comic Con arrives are definitely the Comic Con panels where our favorite actors and actresses answer questions talk to the audience. Here are a few of our favorite panels from 2011’s Comic Con.
The panel for the nerdy and adorable show “Chuck” was quite enjoyable. The show revolve around a geeky guy who has knowledge about just about everything. The panelists were Zachary Levi , Yvonne Strahovski, Joshua Gomez, Ryan McPartlin, Mark Christopher Lawrence, Vik Sahay, Scott Krinsky, Sarah Lancaste, Adam Baldwin and co-creator Chris Fedak. This panel was bittersweet because "Chuck" was premiering it's last season that year. They started off the panel by showing some scenes from previous scenes and the previous season finale's best moments. Then the actors got extremely personal and opened up about all their experiences on set and their feelings about each other. It was quite the emotional journey.
As one of the most popular vampire shows on air, the “True Blood” panel was one of the most anticipated! The show has the most realistic vampires on television! The panel included Alan Ball, Anna Paquin (the famous Sookie), Stephen Moye, Sam Trammell, Ryan Kwanten, Rutina Wesley, Kevin Alejandro, Kristin Bauer, Nelsan Ellis, Joe Manganiello and Deborah Ann Woll. It was a very great, relaxed panel and a great change to see all the actors having discussions with the audience. Also, we really enjoyed this because of all the spoilers they gave out for the next season! But, don't worry they didn't away too much– only playful hints. Also, the characters gave a bit of insight into their relationships and personal lives with their co-actors.
“Dexter” is one of the most brilliant yet creepiest shows on television today. It follows the life of sociopath turned cop, Dexter who takes out his killing tendencies on bad people. The panelists were C.S. Lee (Vince Masuka), Michael C. Hall (Dexter Morgan), David Zayas (Sgt. Angel Batista), season six guest star Colin Hanks. The panel was extremely intimate with Michael C. Hall and showed a great insight into the next season and his character. They even told us that there would be a bit of faith in the next season– maybe apathetic Dexter will start to believe in God!
Tweens, teens, children, middle-aged women—you could see the amount of diversity of “Twilight” fans in the audience. This movie has the friendliest vampires we have seen a very long time! Instead of feeding on humans, they survive off animal blood. The panelists were Taylor Lautner, Robert Pattison and Kristen Stewart. They start off the panel with never before scenes from their latest movie, "Breaking Dawn". The actors spill on their embarrassing, intense and sexy scenes. They also give away some of the names o the 15 songs from the soundtrack to their screaming fans.
2011 was the fourth panel at Comic Con for the famous sci-fi show “Fringe”. The show follows a detective trying to figure out strange sci-fi FBI cases with the help of a "mad scientist". The panel featured Anna Torv , Lance Reddick, Blair Brown, Jasika Nicole, John Noble and Jeff Pinkner. Even though Joshua Jackson wasn’t present, it was still one of the best panels at comic con. They started off the panel not with scenes from the television show, but with the actors' audition tapes before the show was filmed! It had the whole audience laughing and amazed at how much they've grown. They too also explained stuff that remained ambiguous in the show.
