“I can’t believe it, Nathan! They like me! They really like me!”
I’m back, and I’m glowing with the happiness of having shaken hands with Mal (Nathan Fillion) and Jayne (Adam Baldwin). I’ve withstood the intense and ponderous gaze of the Doctor (Sean Maher), basked in the glory of Inara (Morena Baccarin), been dazzled by the semi-psychic abilities of River (Summer Glau), and I’ve been intimidated by the beauty and strength of Zoe (Gina Torres, wife of Lawrence Fishburne). I’ve I’ve given Kaylee (Jewel Staite) “the ol’ chuck on the shoulder.” And Joss Whedon has given me counsel on writing sharp dialogue.
Does it sound like I’m confusing the actors with their characters a bit? Maybe I am. But you know, it was uncanny how much the actors’ personalities remind me of their characters. They’re as much fun in person as they are on the show.
Are you watching the Firefly DVDs yet? I hope you are.
And no… nobody’s paying me to say this. I’ve been a fan since I first set eyes on the show… before it was canceled.
Now I’m wearing my new Serenity t-shirt, and I’m back on the job. You’ll see the interview transcripts very soon.
