I was one of the first to show up at Bridge Studios on Friday, 9/12/08. At that time there were 2 people waiting to see what would happen. As the day wore on others joined.
A closer look at the signs:
And more people at the rally:
Some of the actors stopped to talk to us as they showed up for their call time. David Nykl:
Joe Mallozzi and Martin Gero came down to say hello.
When David H showed up, Joe M and Martin G decided to leave for lunch:
People leaving also stopped to talk and sign autographs. This is the new 'villain' for Sanctuary - character name - Dana Whitcomb. ActionFigure Sheppard was delighted to see her and is waving in the foreground of the picture.
I had to leave early but others stayed well into the evening. As has been reported on lj user="itsjustgwen", lj user="shaddyr", lj user="n7cdrsheppard" and at http://josephmallozzi.wordpress.com/2008/09/13/september-13-2008-fans-protest-main-title-compressed-some-questions-addressed/
and other places, they were rewarded for their fortitude with a personal tour of the sets by Robert Picardo!
Hopefully, we can get together again for a rally on Thursday when they end filming on the SGA series.
