In my browsing the other day, I came across a vlog by Verne Troyer, aka Mini Me, that he made a few weeks ago while he was in Salt Lake City attending FanX. He even managed to get Dulé Hill and James Roday from Psych as well as Wallace Shawn from The Princess Bride to take a few moments to say “hi” and to talk about their experience at the convention.
I love this video on multiple levels, but mostly because it provides a short glimpse into a convention from the perspective of a celebrity guest. We’ve all been in attendance at conventions in some capacity, but only a few of us have been there as someone that other people are coming to see. I really enjoyed seeing what it’s like for these guys on the other side of the table.
As you can see, he was very positive about his experience at FanX and I’m genuinely sorry that I didn’t get a chance to go speak with him. Maybe he’ll be gracious enough to come back in the future, and maybe I’ll be lucky enough to get a chance to chat with him.
