I'm amazed that an interview with Michael turned into a discussion about Twilight!

Very interesting interview Maya, were you lucky enough to conduct it in person? Did you find out,as he has not been acting, what he has been doing to earn a living? and why on earth is he NOT in the loving arms of a woman?

I have one interview that I conducted in person, the one from Megacon, and the other one was an email interview while he was in Germany. His projects are few and far between, he does an occasional play and just finished 'Blissestrasse' this year, but so far nothing else.

Apparently he pretty much likes to go his own way, and please don't pay too much attention to the personal remarks, alot of that is tongue-in-cheek. I don't ask about his personal life as it's his business and not ours, in spite of all the speculation about who he's dating, etc.

LOL  I wondered the same thing when I read that!  Of course, it's none of our business and I completely respect his privacy... but, if Michael's ever interested....  I'm single.  Just putting that out there...   :bigtup:

Can't blame a girl for trying, right?  :D


BTW, Maya?  Is the one you did at Megacon the one where he's in sunglasses and you guys look like you're outside?  I thought that interview was fantastic!  A good variety of questions.

Hey, he brought it up!

I wasn't wondering WHO he was dating, just WHY he wasn't!

(tho this interview was last year so things may well have changed now and hopefully he's happily in the loving arms of one very lucky woman!)

Yeah, that was the one I did on the loading dock of the convention center because it was the only half-way quiet place in the whole building and the light was better. Michael blocked his own camera angle and we set up the mic just under the handle of the loading cart he was sitting on. I half expected someone to come by and demand we return the damn thing right in the middle of the interview, and we were lucky we weren't interrupted every five minutes.  The sunglasses were certainly NOT my idea, BTW, but apparently they were necessary since it was the butt-crack of dawn and everyone had been up all night partying, myself included. Unfortunately I had NO sunglasses so I had to rough it. I thought he did a great job considering he'd had no sleep to speak of. I barely remember anything else that happened that day.

Was this after the "Party till you can't find your way to the elevator" incident?

Sorry I just couldn't resist!

Well, kudos to you and Michael for being a couple of troopers!  :bigtup: I never would have guessed it was done so early in the morning with so little sleep.

Yes, this was after the 'Lost elevator' incident....which happened at about 3am or thereabouts.

If I had been more sober (yeah, right) I would have made more of an effort to make sure that he'd at least  found his way to the correct wing of the hotel, but I was doing good just to stay upright at that point in time...

Brian having bought us cognac on top of endless beers (and my Jack and cokes) sure didn't help, not that I complained about it at the time...I lost Angel somewhere around 12:30 I think, it's all a bit hazy. Kathy was curled up in a fetal postion and snoring merrily when I finally made it back to my room at close to dawn.

Oh we need more details of your drunken evening with Brian and Michael please (and how you managed to join them!) It sounds like you had fun! ;-)
I've been to only one convention and getting any quiet time with the guests is really hard!

I wondered what happened to y'all.  I was leaning on the elevator when Brian wanted to go up Saturday morning? having pushed the button and waiting leaning against the glowing indicator.  Brian came up and politely (after a moment or two of staring at me, I guess he thought I was leaning on the wall for no good reason) requested that I move so he could push the button to recall the elevator. 

I smiled at him and moved to show him the button was illuminated already.  I was waiting for the elevator myself and holding up the wall in the meantime.  :wtflol:  He blustered a bit (it was very much like Stanley Tweedle, he was adorable!) and we stood there, or rather, he stood and I leaned for ten or fifteen minutes before the elevator came at last.  We traveled up together and staggered off one at a time to our various floor destinations.  IIRC it was around 4 am and I was exhausted. 

We were hitting the bricks early next morning doing it all over again.  :bounce_pinka:

Well it wasn't that big a deal at the time, pretty much everyone that made it to the convention that was staying at that hotel all managed to stumble into the only bar they had in the lobby and it went to hell from there. There must have been about 10 of us at one time all clustered (pun intended) together in one group of booths.

 Also attending were the cast of Farscape, (Virginia Hey, Gigi Edgley and Wayne Pygram) in addition to their convention manager, Jean. A bunch of us saw Virginia and swore it was Xenia, (who was ensconsed in her hotel room for the whole convention) since they were dead ringers for each other. We saw Michael at the bar talking to a Farscape guy and then Brian came in, grabbed Michael and descended on our tables. After that first night everyone just pretty much all met there after the convention hours were over, except for an MM/Farscape dinner date.

 Other than one drunken political rant on the last night there, that was pretty much it, right PE? hehe

Oh and the notorious WHEELCHAIR OF DEATH !! Filled with booze even. I swear to God. I had been told by the Events planner at the hotel that we couldn't have booze at our Lexx party room unless we had open bar and paid a ton of extra cash, so I was SO paranoid I almost passed up the opportunity for a ton of free booze provided by one of the Lexx buddies. Only after being verbally chastised by everyone, I begged said Lexx buddy to grab the liquor, and hide it from the staff, of which they did a much more superb job than ever I could. Brian and Michael were VERY grateful.

Sounds like everyone was possessed by the spirits of Captain Morgan, Jim Beam, Johnny Walker, Jose Cuervo and Jack Daniels!
