One of my favorite moments of the #FanDays was the Q&A at Sean Astin & Elijah Wood’s panel. As they time began to run out way too early, after starting over 15 minutes late, Sean Astin started to do a speed round with the questions. He tried to get everyone’s questions, including the “Your Favorite…” ones, so they could answer them in a batch. With several people still in line, the audience mics went quiet. “Go ahead. Go. Go.” encourage Elijah. The Comic Con AV team had turned off the mics.
“They cut the mics! It’s a hostile takeover.” exclaimed Elijah.
Sean Astin was not happy about this, “Can we just say… I don’t like it when people have the courage to stand up when asked to ask a question and they stand there for a long time and don’t get to ask their question. So, I don’t appreciate that The Con didn’t cut the line before that was not possible.”
“Wordz… ” agreed Elijah, “I completely concur.”
Of course the crowd replied with uproarious applause.
