Five Fun Facts About Julie Dolan Before Meeting Her At Colossus Con 2017

Do you like this post?

Colossus Con is coming to Pleasanton, California this Saturday April 8th, 2017. There is going to be a lot going on at this convention and Temple of Geek is here to give you a head start. Back in January, I got to speak with Julie Dolan and asked her 10 questions so fans could get to know her. This time, I caught up with Ms. Dolan again and asked her about 5 facts that fans could know before they meet her this Saturday.

 

On voicing Leia-

“Since I don’t usually get a script ahead of time and may not know the exact project I will be working on. When I go into the studio, sometimes I have no idea which age of Leia I will be playing.”

 

On attending cons-

“I’ve only attending one so far. I have several booked this year. The costumes are amazing. I did not really know what Cosplay was until I saw it with my own eyes.”

 

On playing in her band-

“I play keyboards in a few Tribute Bands and Cover Bands. I’ve been playing piano since I was 9 so I thought I’d see if I could make a career of it. I’ve traveled in and out of the country doing what I love to do playing music.”

 

On meeting fans-

“I was blown away at how quickly I was accepted into the Star Wars Family by the fans. They are so generous and welcoming. It’s like meeting family members. I am so looking forward to meeting some more fans at Colossus Con!”

 

On hobbies-

“Playing my keyboards. Music – Music – Music! Oh and scuba diving in Hawaii!”

Slade started Temple of Geek in 2012 with his friend as a podcast. Since then, it has become a lot more. His obsessions are Transformers, Star Wars, Classic Video Games, Superheroes, and comedies.

Slade’s life was turned to the Darkside when his father gave him a gift in 1985. He was presented with the leader of the Decepticons, Megatron. Since then, Slade has become a collector of the robots in disguise.

The only other thing that comes close to Slade’s love of Transformers is Star Wars. He has met a few of the cast over the years. Slade’s one goal in life is to meet with George Lucas and just discuss movies with him.
