And anotha one... /

I have been invited back for a second day of autograph signings at the Fan Expo here in Toronto tomorrow, so please come and see me if you can!

I'll be signing autographs (well, I'll be signing silly pictures of David and I) from 1 to 4pm, right next to Battlestar's Aaron Douglas.

Here are the details:

My table is right at entrance D in the big main room. I'll be sharing a table with Aaron Douglas again, so come and meet the Chief, too!

(I'm a last-minute addition, so you won't find me in the program...
I'm mysterious like that...
Well, I like to pretend that I am...)

I'm sure you'll have a great time.

I'm sequestered in Philadelphia this week, trying to finish the novel that's already two weeks late to the publisher . . .

Just moved two cats across the country (albeit by air). Must rest now.

Oh man...you and David on The Shrine...and Joe F's expressions...gawsh, you all about killed me but what a phenomenal episode.

The part where David (as Rodney) announced "You're my sister." just about unglued me.

That will certainly go on my "Favorite Episodes" list.

I know! That part was emotional for me too!

just wanted to drop by and say "awesome job" on The Shrine.

It is going on my favorite episodes list for sure!

Your performance was amazing, and touched a heart string in me. You just played amazingly well off David ;)

Just dropping by to tell you how much I was blown away by The Shrine. That episode has everything that's the reason of why I love SGA so much (what an unfortunate sentence... you probably get what I'm trying to say though?)

Your part in it was amazing. All those nuances; screaming inside, but having to contain it because you're angry at people who you know are doing the best they can, because you can't break down in front of your brother etc.
I loved the moment with Ronon.

As you say above, I can imagine some of the scenes being very emotional because they hit quite close at (to?) home so to speak.

I loved that little irritated knee-jerk reaction when Jennifer comes up with a theory Jeannie had already offered earlier.

(I'm dutch_eowyn by the way, the one with the sniffing mouse icon, who doesn't usually get all chatty all over your blog, but now I finally want to say something Blogger won't let me log in, grrr!)

Yes, you did a great job in "The Shrine". You definately added to the episode.

And hope the cats are doing okay.

Another one dropping by to say you did a fantastic job in The Shrine. That first scene with Jeanie and Rodney was absolutely heartbreaking. There were definitely tears. You were amazing!

Okay, just saw The Shrine. It was beautiful, and you were exceptional in it.

Oh wow, THE FONZ is going to be there! I am SO JEALOUS! (And jealous of those who get to be in your lovely presence as well, of course. ::shifty eyes:: ) But have a lovely time!

(And I feel as thought I am obligated to make a comment about how many times you broke my heart in "The Shrine." You're really something else.)

Oh boy what an emotional episode. I cried from start to finish while watching "The Shrine" I have never seen you and David act like that before and it was so awesome. And I am not much of a crier (except when I get smacked from my older sisters). Kate kudos to you. You did a fabulous Job. The whole cast did a great job. My favourite Episode is The Shrine.

Hugs
Fran

PS
Kate could you let David know that we are thinking about him and that we all loved "The Shrine". He was amazing. And we miss his Blog and we miss him.

Finally dragged my sick butt to the computer to tell you that you kick A*s.

I watched The Shrine 2x in 1 night and intend to watch it several more! You and David are like magic one screen.

My heart kept breaking for the both of you through the episode.

You are one amazing actress. So completely believeable. I watch you and I think she is more than just delivering lines. You make me feel as if you are really living what is going on in the scene.

Did you put yourself into that situation? Say what would it feel like if David really did get sick like Alzheimers?

Hopefully, they'll manage to get you writ into the upcoming movies since we won't get to see you on Season 6. ***sniffles***

'Twas great to see you!

Sorry, I have to get a passport before I can get to Canada. I hope you had a grand time.

Spoiler Alert for "The Shrine."
-------------------------------------
You did an amazing job on The Shrine. I know you would have been even if you weren't playing opposite David, but did that make the emotional acting more or less difficult?

I love how Jeanie held it together, excusing herself before falling apart. How strong she was when Keller presented the options. How worried that she took too long reconfiguring the LSD. And that look of sisterly love at the end of the episode.

End Spoiler Alert

I hope to see you soon, whether it be on TV, at a convention, or doing a play. Take care.

I found this little anecdote amusing, so I thought I'd share.

I was at Fan Expo this weekend and was standing near Entrance D with a few friends. When I go to large events, I tend to see a lot of people that look like people I know, so typically I think nothing of it. As I was standing there, this curly blonde-haired girl walks by and I think to myself, "You know, that really looks like.. ::snapping fingers:: Kate Hewlett, Rodney McKay's sister on Atlantis!" However, since you weren't on the Guest list, I squelched the thought, thinking you were simply another convention goer. Then later on when I came back through that entrance, I discovered your sequestered table by the exit and couldn't help but chuckle at the irony.

I'm not one for signatures, and just saying hi always seems weird to me, so I never approached. But nevertheless, pleased to me you. :)

The bit in Shrine that I thought was brilliant, was the part where David and you were at the shrine itself. David went from his child like state to full blown arrogant McKay straight back to humility. At the same time you went from empathy to being assertive sister back to empathy. Brilliant, absolutely brilliant!!!

Phew... I'm glad I don't have to act - it would do me in.

Well, The Shirine was amazing. I almost cried, when you and David met and you ran out of the room. By the way, that black suit you wore in the "away mission" was cool and sexy. Oh, and the necklace was pretty. :)
Greetings from Hungary. :)

Hey Kate,
Cats, Plays and Alcohol?
You mention your cat and plays and other stuff - but how is the Alcohol going?

Blogger Stephanie said...

Oi, I wish I lived in the area. I'm hopefully going to get into a graduate school within a few hours of Toronto. One of these days I will make it to a convention. I just hope it's before you're a huge celebrity and don't have time for chats anymore.

I *finally* managed to watch The Shrine, and wow. I am not ashamed to say I got a little misty-eyed (which is huge for this hard-hearted hannah). I love scenes between McKay and Jeannie, but this episode was particularly touching. I loved it, and I think the saddest thing about SGA not coming back for another season is that there will be no more Jeannie-and-Meredith on my television. :c

(ps - did you get the role you zipped off to audition for? we missed you but wished you well!)

I guess I'm a bit late to this party...but the Shrine was phenomenal! I am not a big crier at shows, but I have to admit I cried through this one!

I think after meeting you and David at Shore Leave and seeing how you interact with each other in real life, that made it much more real for me. (I gave you the bag with your ADB character Marilyn on it)

When you were crying, I was crying for you. I must be a masochist for crying but I watched it about 6 times. (Um...not all at once though...lol) It took me the first 4 or 5 viewings before I didn't cry at all.

It was a truly wonderful show. Thank you for that!
