Comic Con HQ Red Carpet Experience

Do you like this post?

HELLO EVERYONE!!!!! Katie here! I know I have been super MIA for awhile, but I’m back. I also have a bunch of interviews to share with everyone from Comic Con HQ!

Recently, my friend Tiffany and I attended our first official red carpet event in Los Angeles. Temple of Geek was invited to attend the Comic Con HQ Premiere Party as Press on the Red Carpet!

I know! Huge moment right?!? Chelsea normally attends events with me, but scheduling got in the way. Therefore, I brought along my friend Tiffany. She’s a hoot!

Awhile back, Comic Con HQ announced that they would be offering an online streaming service with Original content, well that moment has arrived. This new online streaming service offers one of a kind pop culture, nerdy, geeky, comic book, and convention related content.

You can sign up for a 30-day free trial at any time by Clicking Here 

But let us get to the real reason why were are here.

Comic Con HQ Event!

As some of you might have seen last week, we had the opportunity to interview the amazing Mark Hamill. I am still blown away by how amazing and down to earth this man is. Honestly, he is the biggest fan boy I have ever met. I still can’t believe that Tiffany and I met him.

You can check out that interview here.

But, the amazing Mark Hamill isn’t the only guy we got to interview!

Kings of Con

Tiffany and I were able to have a quick chat with two of our favorite actors from Supernatural. Rob Benedict and Richard Speight, Jr. have a new show called Kings of Con. Basically, this show is a dramatization of their experiences while on the Supernatural Convention circuit. These two gentlemen take their experiences and those of their close friends and co-actors to create the on stage and behind the scenes moments we see in each episode.

Here is what they had to say about their show (We recorded in a room with A LOT OF PEOPLE, so it’s really loud. It’s still amateur hour in here with editing audio quality, but I’m learning):

Nolan North

Next, Tiffany and I spoke with Nolan North who is one of the stars of ConMan. Personally, I recognized him from Pretty Little Liars, he plays Spencer Hastings father.

We spoke with Nolan about his character in ConMan and how he felt about Pretty Little Liars coming to an end. Nolan also gave a special shout out to his tv daughter, Troian Bellisario, who was recently married.

Here is what he had to say (Same thing, this was recorded in a slightly quieter room, but still super loud):

Laura Vandervroot

Next, Tiffany and I spoke with Laura Vandervroot. She is one of the many actors to star in Con Man. Some of you may recognize her as Supergirl from The WB’s Smallville and most recently as Indigo on The CW’s Supergirl. 

Here is what she had to say about her role in Con Man and as Indigo in Supergirl (As always it’s still super loud in the background):

Nathan Fillion

Now before everyone get’s super excited we were unable to snag an interview with this amazing man. He was coming down the line doing interviews and when he was about 2 outlets away from us he left. Depression central!

But, we did kind of ambush him as he was trying to leave after the even to at least get a photo with this amazing man.

The Event Overall

All in all, I would call this a very successful red carpet event. The staff were fantastic. They made sure we were able to get as many interviews as possible, without them none of this would have been possible. I hope that we have an opportunity to work with Comic Con HQ again in the very near future.

Lastly, make sure to visit their website and get a subscription to check out their new shows and watch season 2 of Con Man!
