MegaCon ‘08: Adrian Pasdar SPOILERRIFIC!

He… was amazing. The whole crowd fell in love with him, essentially. He was laughy, and chatty, and TOTALLY SPOILERY, YOU GUYS.

When he first sat down and was like “Hey!” this group of about four guys jumped up, pointed there fingers and yelled “FLYING MAN!!!!” We all started laughing, and while Adrian looked a little startled at first, he then laughed too. Haha! It was hilarious and really broke the ice, so to say.

I can’t transcribe the event, but everyone asked great questions and he revealed some very spoilery things and some great insight.


He talked about the harnesses him and Milo wear — and how in season one they were horrible and clinched “in all the wrong places” but then the season two versions were better.

Adrian mentioned that he is claustrophobic - and that the scariest/most interesting thing about season two was putting on “monster face” because he had to be incased in plaster for 45 minutes without moving, or being able to hear, etc. He said it was frightening and he was a wreck.

That led to an interesting anecdote about a few weeks after that he had to get an MRI and the experience was horrific. He was like “They have this thing that comes *this* close to your face and is going *makes really horrible noise*” and he mentioned having his finger on the panic button and barely managing not to press it because the MRI technician was his girlfriend from junior year of High School. Everyone laughed, because he went on to say that if he pressed the button, she would tell everyone. Hahaha! :)

Adrian expressed that he felt that in season two he was a resource that hadn’t really been utilized. He said he felt almost hurt by the fact that he was shafted. He described a beautiful scene with him and his family in the hospital where he yells and them, tells them he hates them, and then his son helping him back into the hospital bed and being like “I love you dad”. I got all AWWWWW, WHY DID THEY CUT THAT? He said it felt like it helped him understand Nathan as a character, but he was kind of ‘wtf, why didn’t they cut ALL MY SCENES?’

He gave wonderful advice to a film student. He was very nice about it, because she asked about what he would do, etc. He also kept mentioning his buckshotwon account, and how it started off as a joke, but now he was like 2,000,000 hits and he’s been getting offers from like NBC and stuff to do something with it.

A fan asked Adrian how he felt about Nathan’s life being in peril at the end of two seasons now, and Adrian was very funny about it, saying something along the lines of “I wish I could just ride into the sunset with the girl and… but no… Nope” and then he kind of looked at the ceiling and went “why me?” haha. :)

Adrian said a lot of other things that were wonderful and funny, esp. one story about him having dinner with Senator Barack Obama and that all Obama wanted to talk about was “Heroes” because his wife and him had been watching all the DVDs on the campaign trail and Adrian was like “buzzuh?” It was hilarious.
Adrian followed up with talking about politics and that he thinks it’s great that so many young people are getting so involved and that he doesn’t care who you vote for, what you believe, just that getting involved is great. He was very diplomatic.

I am trying to get this written up as soon as possible, so I will just jump to the good stuff (although he did make a lot of other comments)

Oh, and Adrian said he IS going to Comic Con. ;)


He inadvertently revealed that Nathan is coming back for season three for various reasons.

A fan asked him if he would like to direct an episode of “Heroes”, and Adrian started to say “Well, I’d like to, but with the shooting schedules usually running ten days, so you’d be putting yourself out for…” in then he kind of trails off realizing that he was saying “Well, I’m gonna be filming, so it’d be hard to direct too” Hahaha. Then he was kind of like “uhhhh…”

He also referenced Nathan constantly in the present-tense.

He jokingly mentioned a ‘theoretical’ scenario for how season two really ended. He was like “the clues were all there for what really happened”. He posed the scenario that Nathan wore a vest — and either
a) knew the attack was coming
b) planned it himself
Both were really interesting, and he really seemed to be pushing them, because the guy who was leading the Q & A (can’t remember his name) was like “You used the word ‘vest’ twice” and Adrian started laughing.

Adrian alluded to the fact that he will have a lot of scenes with Claire next season, and him being a ‘father’ will be really important.

There will be a lot of the Petrelli dynamic in season three, esp. with regards to Nathan and Peter and their mother — trying to bring her back from evil. I think Adrian said she was the “Queen-Bee of the Darkside” or something. We LOL’d.

Season three will be awesome, and will fix the problems with season two. He seemed really optimistic.

Unfortunately, he kind of hinted at the fact that Nathan will, eventually, die. :(

That’s all I’ll say for the Q & A, if you have any more specific questions, I’d be glad to answer them. ;) And I’m sure video will be released soon. I saw some people video-taping.

ETA : I decided to remove the autograph and photo because I just realized.. if the writers/etc. read every post about “Heroes”, I will be guilty by association on this post. LOL. Yes, I am little paranoid, but they’re still over at my lj. :O

ETA : Things I remembered –

He mentioned that every letter written to NBC, the writers, etc. gets read and that the fans play a big part in the show.
Likewise, Adrian said he reads every. single. comment. on his buckshotwon account. I ? him. :)

Also, when a fan mentioned Just Like a Woman, Adrian went “I looked good”. The crowd went: *WOOOOO!* and then Adrian laughed and said “I mean, I looked good in a dress” The crowd went: (even louder) *WOOOOOOOOOO!!* Adrian = LOL!

ETA 2 : Another thing I remembered (yes, I typed this hastily, can’t you tell? Hahaha)

When the Q & A dude (still can’t remember his name) was like “We’ll take one more question” Adrian was like “No, I’ll take a more. I’m here for you guys” Crowd: *WOOOO!* I dunno, it just seemed really sweet. ? Hahaha. Actually, everything he said was utterly adorable.
