WARNING: Interviews may contain spoilers for Sanctuary’s upcoming season.
Thankfully the interview room was just across the hall from the Indigo Ballroom in the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel. Wormholeriders News Agency sincerely thanks Carole Appleby of the Sanctuary Press and Media division for our access.
As I walked into the room several reporters were seated at a round table. Then there were the television reporters that had their cameras situated towards the entrance of the room. The photographers were set up at the end of the room with the Comic Con back drop or background.
There was a flurry of flashes as Amanda, Robin, Ryan, and Damian were being photographed. They did a group picture together. Then Amanda, Robin, and Ryan were asked to take one together. Afterwards Amanda and Ryan were photographed together. Lastly, each was asked to do solo shots. I love how one of the photographers asked Amanda to do a model type pose. She gladly obliged. She looked like she was having fun.
Both Damian and Ryan were pretty laid back when they took their solo pictures. Robin and Ryan definitely hammed it up for the cameras with his silly poses. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get Ryan in one of those pictures, sorry.
After their photo sessions each were split up to do interviews. I was seated with 10 other reporters. Before hand we were told we would get approximately 15 minutes with each individual. First up was Josh Gates from SyFy’s Destination Truth. Josh had moderated the Sanctuary panel which will be reported on in the near future. He talked about his show and what to expect from this upcoming season of Destination Truth (not included in the Sanctuary Press Room Red Carpet video below).
First up from Sanctuary was the lovely Amanda Tapping. Before beginning her interview she greeted each reporter, asked our names, and shook each of our hands. Time flew by too quickly during our time with Amanda!. It happens when she makes the interview fun. I was really sad that we did not have more time with her, but was happy with what she was able to share with us.
Ryan Robbins was next up. Ryan said hi to everyone and was nice. I was really surprised at how softly he spoke with us. As you will see in the video he does reveal more about his character and what is coming up in the new season of Sanctuary.
Damian Kindler was interviewed next. Damian was relaxed and greeted each of us. He had fun answering the questions asked of him. He did his best not to spoil what is to come for the upcoming season. He is pleased with the direction the show is going.
Last to be interviewed was the very funny, Robin Dunne. Like Ryan and Damian before him he too greeted each of us. Robin is a lively guy I have to say. Unfortunately, time was not on our side as he was only able to answer two questions before he was told his time was up. He was only able to answer both questions because he talked and explained quite a bit about what to expect this upcoming season.
Ryan’s last duty of the day was to do his SyFy channel plug. Amanda, Ryan, and I believe Damian had each done their SyFy plugs. I wasn’t able to see or hear much of them as I was focusing on Robin’s interview. I stuck around a bit to see him flub his lines. It was funny to watch and I wasn’t the only one that decided to stay.
Damian and Amanda were watching from behind the camera teasing him each time he would mess up. They would not go and eat until Robin had finished. I think on the fourth take he was able to complete his task much to Amanda and Damian’s delight. Before leaving the room I was able to thank Robin for this interview. He was very sweet and I do hope I get another opportunity to see him again.
I hope you all enjoyed the video interviews as much as I did being there to take them. Please feel free to leave a non spam comment here or by visiting me on Twitter by clicking the text link or my avatar. Thank you.
