For the past 9 years, I've been a loyal fan of Smallville. Few shows have an opportunity to have the longevity that Smallville has had. With the 10th and final season starting up this fall, the Smallville crew is expected to give the fans an ending to remember.
I for one, can never turn down a chance to meet one of the actors from the show. So far I've only met Michael Rosenbaum, who is just one of the coolest and gracious actors I've had the pleasure of meeting.
I paid to take a picture with Michael Rosenbaum, but I was given the wrong time for the celebrity photo op at Dragon*Con that year. By the time I got there, they were setting up for a different celebrity.
I ran into Michael in the lobby, and told him what happen. He was just the nicest guy ever, and he felt terrible about the mix up (and it was in no way his fault). He told me to stop by the next day, and sure enough I got my photo.
This year I was thrilled to find out there would be Smallville guests at Chicago Comic Con. Yet another opportunity to meet actors from a series I've loved for years, and I don't have to travel far to see them. John Schneider is on the top of my list of guests to meet at Chicago Comic Con. I honestly would love to just get a big ole hug from Jonathan Kent.
When I found out that John would be guest starring in the final season of Smallville, I was both confused and excited. I don't know how they are going to bring back a character who's been dead on the show for the past 4 seasons, but I'm sure the writers will work their magic.
The good news is, I'll get a chance to ask John Scheider personally! I'm happy to share with all you readers that I will not only get a chance to meet John Schneider at Chicago Comic Con, I will be interviewing him next week. I'm thrilled! So maybe I'll get the inside scoop on season 10 from Mr. Kent himself.
