Ok, I was so tired but I had to upload the pictures before I went to bed. It was an awesome night! My brother & I went to the True Blood Panel at the Paleyfest. Lord, I should've been prepared for that climb to the rear balcony! We sat down just in time.
Alan Ball came out and introduced a video montage of Season 1-3, and a clip from the 4th season. The fans were screaming crazy, like if we were at a teenie bop concert. After the vid, the cast was introduced.
It was a nice discussion, along with questions from fans. I did take a couple of videos and will share the links later when i upload them. We hung out after and were lucky enough to get a couple of autographs (Sam & Alexander) and my brother scored with also getting Stephen's.
Being all the way in the balcony, I couldn't take great, close-up, photos. If it wasn't for the big projection screen, I probably wouldn't have any. Here are the best pix:
