There’s this saying that says ‘Never meet your heroes’ because it might be disappointing or something? Well I can tell you from personal experience, this is definitely not always the case. Especially when it concerns Stargate heroes! I’ve met a few celebrities at comic cons, and out of all of them, I must say, that the Stargate actors where the best to be around and talk to! It seems to me they really genuinely enjoy meeting their fans and chatting with them. To me, this really showed and this is why these memories will forever be safely guarded in my little geeky heart.
Robert Knepper was the first Stargate actor I have ever met, was and is also a favorite of mine because of another hit show that he stars in. I am of course talking about the one and only Robert Knepper! This amazing actor is in my humble opinion the best actor ever to portray an evil character in a movie or a TV show. You know what the funny thing is though? The guy couldn’t be more totally opposite like that in real life. After me and my brother attended a Q&A in which I got to ask him a question, we decided to go and meet him and maybe have a chat at his booth. Of course my ‘geek-o-meter’ went berserk once we got to meet him. But sure enough he told us to relax, and so we did (OK . . . we tried to contain ourselves, but that’s the best we could do at the time).
We had an amazing chat with Mr. Knepper, and I can tell you, this guy is amazing, and so so very nice! He was even willing to record a birthday message for our twin nephews who happened to be huge Robert Knepper fans, but sadly couldn’t attend the con themselves. To this day, they keep playing this recorded message, because Mr. Knepper also mentions them by name, how cool is that?! He earned a million ‘cool points’ from me that day.
