so, you`re all gonna be so jealous!♥
4.7.10 The Best jour Of My Life
It Was Truely Ah-Mazing!
so, i went with two of my best Friends and we`d bought the tickets (which we like extremely
expensive - and worth it!) like a mois before as well as our photos, which was a good thing because when we got there all of Ian`s photos were sold out :)
i live in Melbourne, so it was held in a theatre at Melbourne Uni :)
we got there at 8.30am, doors opening at 9.00, hundreds of fans, flashing cameras for the cast of our favourite TV Show! Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder
and Michael Trevino
From all the countless recounts I`ve read of them at appearences, conventions whatever, the same words come up over and over again. Things like; Sincere, Humble, Gorgeous, Beautiful, Amazing.
And its all true. Every word. The actors I met were extremely humbled to be a part of such an amazing montrer and completely and utterly sincere when they spoke of how amazing the support from the fans is. Ian emphasised before he left that`Without toi guys there wouldn't be a show`
So the beginning of the convention was the photo session, so it was like the first time toi saw them - was at your photo. Inches from yourself. It was such a sureal feeling!
In the meantime while others were having their photos, finalists from the Hub intro video competition were played. I was completely astounded when my video for Nina was played. I didn`t in the slightest expect to be in the haut, retour au début 5! :D my photo experience;
Me & Ian <3
anyway, so then we had our photos, and it was like OMFG, seriously: i was SHAKING! I had Ian first, and i like walked in - and F**K HE WAS GORGEOUS :O - anyway ;) he was like `heeeyy` and i was like hi :D and he`s like so, how toi doingg? and i was like haha goood.. :P and then he like full on put his arm around me for the photo and was like pulling me in really close and i was like OMG THIS IS ACTUALLY AMAZING :D It was so great because he wasn`t the type to not talk to you, and let toi feel awkward standing beside him :D anyway, then i was like bye, and he was like thankyou! and i was like AWWWWWWWWWW.
AND THEN. OMG. PAUL :O who was absolutely F**KING AMAAAAZING :DDD
i walked in and i was like saying to myself god i feel short,
Me & Paul <3
and i didnt know he heard and then he was like laughing and i was like, MDR awkward :P anyway, so he`s like hi, how are toi today? and i`m like i`m good thankyooou :D and then the camera lady`s like, salut can toi please déplacer your fringe away from your eyes? and Paul was like, `Yeah, we dont want to hide your beautiful face!`
and i was like PAUL WESLEY DID NOT JUST SAY THAT TO ME :D and then he like hugged me and all for the photo, and then when he a dit bye he like leant down and his face was SO close, i swear i could`ve kissed him... and then been thrown out par security ;)
anyway, MY AMAZING PHOTOS^
that i look shit in. anywhoooo..
My Edit; Paul, Me + Ian
Then, each of the four guests took turns to be with us for a Q&A session and each of them were unique, entertaining and were truely happy to be there :) There were no brush-offs of any kind. In Nina`s Q&A she first mentioned a cast member who truely believes in aliens, and how they [the cast] prank him with calls that appear to be coming from his own phone and a rock that he has to have on him at all times to protect him from the aliens. Nina refused to tell us who though. Paul too, although he told us `Ask Ian, he`ll tell you. He’s gullible, I think he’s a bit thick’`
and he laughed :D toi could tell how close the cast really are! Who is the believer? A grinning Ian told us `He may ou may not play a teacher on our show...`
Awww, hehe :D Some Highlights Of The Pannels; Michael;
Michael was such an entertaining speaker!
He talked a bit about season two with us, and told us -Beware of Spoilers- `Another Lockwood family member will appear – he’s my Uncle`
and `Tyler will have a new l’amour interest in season 2
Since being in Australia he`s embraced the Australian culutre tried Vegimite, done a Tim Tam Slam and visited the Sydney Opera house :) I think the funniest part for me personally was when he was asked to put on an Australian accent and he says (while immitating an Australian accent) `Stranger Danger!` Nina;
Nina was as gorgeous as ever when she came to talk to us.
When talking about her time on the Vampire Diaries so far she revealed her favourite episodes to film are the flashbacks
, The the auditioning progress was particularily hard for this show!
I loved her story about Paul`s audition. Paul had oringially auditioned for the role of Damon, and they asked her to do one for Stefan. So Nina had already been cast, and of course she had to be there to test the chemistry and there were about 10 Stefan`s all lined up, and all the guys would go up and try to hit on her and be like `You want a coffee?`
and she`d be like Uhm, No!
And they`d be like, `You want a donut?
All of them except Paul. Paul was the loner that sat in teh corner studying his lines :) She a dit `So I guess thats why I liked Paul the most.. because he didn`t like me.. does that make any sense? Paul;
Paul for me for the best speaker. He was totally different to what everyone had anticipated him to be - serious and not-entertaining. I can tell toi now he was hilarious and extremely entertaining!
When asked `What character would toi play other than Stefan?` he responded `Caroline`
and there was silence then everyone laughed, and he was like `I'm not joking! Are toi saying I couldn`t play a bubbly blonde!`
-mock look of horror :P
When he was asked `Did toi get any souvenirs from The Vampire Diaries?` he was like `Oh yeah, I have a lock of Ian Somerhalders hair, for good luck :P` `And then of course theres my Vampire Diaries underwear. Which I wear all the time. The same pair all the time.
Q: `What do toi have to do to get into character?`
Paul: `Watch Ian.. God he`s so hot`
And my favourite question:
`What was your favourite scene to shoot in the Vampire Diaries?`
Paul: Well, toi know the part where Elena and Stefan -pause, and lowers his voice- make love.. No, no not that part! The part before that - It’s the first time he vamps out in front of her and his face and eyes change. He’s ashamed and she thinks he’s beautiful – it’s one of the most intimate moments. The l’amour scene then comes a close second Ian;
Ian was [besides obviously gorgeous] extremely deep and passionate about everything he told us about!
He recommended to a 10-year old girl to was Rules of Attraction (he`s favourite role he`s done) then realising she was 10, rephased `Um, maybe wait til your 16.. no maybe 18. Okay 16, but don`t tell your mum I a dit that. She`s not here is she? I`ve learnt to be scared of little girls parents. I`ll be at a fan event and a girl will come up to me and be like Bite Me! And she`ll be a 13 an old that looks 25 - what is up with toi girls! at least warn me, because the suivant thing i get her dad pop up and be like GET AWAY FROM MY DAUGHTER toi CREEP!
At the end of his session, there was a fundraiser to raise money for the Starlight foundation and it involved Ian putting on a plain white t-shirt and drawing on it, and then they`d sell it.
GOD I WAS SO SO JEALOUS!
he like TRACED HIS ABS ON THE chemise :O
and it went for like $2200 :O BUT OMFG WHEN IT GOT TO $1000 he full on just went over and kissed the girl that bid that :O on the cheek but like full ON :O
and then the girl that BOUGHT IT OMG, he like picked her up, hugged her, kissed her, whispered in her ear. OMFG!! and he wrote like `i l’amour toi (girls name) on the back. SO JEALOUS.
So that was pretty much it. It was the most AMAZING jour EVER. If toi ever get a chance to go see these guys, GO. Its worth whatever it costs. Seriously, they`re amazing people.
