"Castle" and "Firefly" actor Nathan Fillion is a native of Edmonton, Alta., and at this year's Comic Con in San Diego, he also proved he's a really swell, thoughtful, and nice guy.
As the world's biggest science fiction, comic book, film, TV and all-around geekery convention, people are usually pretty busy at Comic Con. Actors, writers, and graphic artists come from around the world to promote their projects and reward loyal followers with sneak peaks and spoilers. This year, there were more than 130,000 attending fans, meaning that in between guest panels, signings, and other scheduled events, it was nearly impossible for the visiting celebrities to personally connect with every single one of them.
Our boy Nathan knew this and planned ahead.
Instead of brushing off eager fans while he was en route to an appointment, Fillion gave out personalized business cards explaining his busy schedule, but imploring them to accept his autograph and that he'd confirm the interaction to any of the fan's jealous friends. Can you say, "class"?
We're guessing Fillion passed out quite a few of those little cards, since not only has he broken into the mainstream with the procedural "Castle," but he was also on-hand at Comic Con to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the cult favourite "Firefly."
As one commenter accurately captioned the photo of one of such cards, borrowing a line from another famous Canadian: "Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy, here's my autograph, watch 'Castle' maybe?"
