For the last almost nine years (give or take some time away sadly due to covid), and they have been a highlight of my life. I am in my element, surrounded by creative, energetic, and kind people who love the same things I do. Having the opportunity to dress up as my favorite characters, later turning it into a way to make others feel good thanks to Heroes for Kids. Indulging in unique and amazing items to show off my love for these worlds and characters (although my wallet yells at me).
But the best part is meeting my heroes, the people bringing these characters that bring me such joy and help me through life.
I have been blessed to meet several. For this list, I wanted to share the names of the Top Ten interactions I have had with celebrities I have met at conventions. Most of these actors are known or I first knew them in live-action productions (I have two Disney stars in here because Disney is legendary status, lol). Be warned; there will be LOTS of “Power Ranger” actors on this list, but it’s because their hearts are as amazing as their heroics, lol!
And PLEASE check out the sister list I did to this one: My Top 22 Interactions with Anime Voice Actors on my author website I did last month. 🙂
You can also check out the album on my author Facebook of all of the wonderful people I have met during my convention adventures.
Top Ten Interactions I have Had with Celebrities:
Tracy Lynn Cruz (Yellow Space Ranger. She is so sweet to her fans and even messages me on Facebook sometimes. She is a lovely soul.)
Walter Jones (original Black Power Ranger. He wore the hat I got him! ^_^)
Johnny Yong Bosh (second Black Power Ranger and famous anime voice actor, such as Ichigo in “Bleach.” He rocks in every way and his stories are a scream.)
Jason David Frank (the legend. The green/white Power Ranger and such a giver to all.)
Austin St. John (the original Red Power Ranger. He was so kind when we talked.)
Karen Ashley (second Yellow Power Ranger. Very sweet.)
Cary Elwes (Wesley in “Princess Bride,” Robin Hood in “Men in Tights,” and The Baron in “The Cat Returns!” He. was. CHARMING and melt worthy.)
Dante Basco (Rufio in “Hook” and Zuko in “Avatar: The Last Airbender.” He kept hiding during the con. It was funny.)
Yaya Han (The world’s darling in cosplay, crafting and modeling. She is stunning and so sweet.)
Carla Perez (The actress who played Rita in “Power Rangers.” She was very nice though, lol.)
Stay beautiful. Stay unique. Stay your nerdy selves! 🙂
