Nostalgia Post 5: Taylor Lautner

Twilight times are long over now and it's likely we'll never see Taylor Lautner in Vancouver again but it was fun while it lasted. These pics are from Eclipse filming when we caught Taylor out in Vancouver. He was a super cool kid and signed a bunch for everyone.

Nostalgia Post 4: Shia LaBeouf

Not one for talking or really having any interaction with fans at all, Shia LaBeouf was still very cool when signing for us. At one point he was sitting on a curb with his bicycle and Henry Cavill walked right past him. Neither had any idea who the other was. Those are what we call "the good ol Vancouver days when we had movie stars in town."
Shia was a regular sighting in Vancouver, on his bike or just walking around town and would stop and sign for us anytime we asked.

Stephen Amell in December

A couple weeks ago we caught Stephen at the airport after his Thanksgiving visit to Texas. He told us he planned on spending Christmas somewhere warm and was hoping he never had to see Vancouver snow.

I realized I never put up this photo of him - they all look the same when he wears that toque.

Nostalgia Post 3: Tom Felton

Tom Felton filmed Rise of the Planet of the Apes in Vancouver a couple years ago. Hopefully he'll be back in the city at some point, even if it's for a convention.

Jared Padalecki at YVR

Jared flew back to Vancouver last night with wife Genevieve and baby Thomas. He was super sweet as always and talked about how Thomas is a champion flyer, except for the fact he doesn't sleep on the plane anymore and daddy wants to!
We don't see Jared very often anymore so he signed what we had, chatted for a little bit and the family was on their way, wishing us a Merry Christmas.

Colin Donnell's chops

Colin Donnell came back to Vancouver after his Thanksgiving break rocking some pretty awesome Movember chops. He was sad that he would be removing them soon. Colin's a super cool guy and signed what we had.

James Remar

If you're a regular to this blog, you're already aware of how huge of Vampire Diaries fans we are. So when we heard James Remar was back in Vancouver filming Horns, we had to get him.
James was out walking with his wife in the rain and gladly signed a couple pictures for us. He talked about how great of a guy Ian is and how much fun it was working on the show. We didn't bother even getting him on Dexter shots, just TVD. Got a really sweet 11x14 of him and Paul and Ian for the collection.

Spoiler Alert! Julian Morris is back in Vancouver!

Last we saw of Prince Phillip on Once Upon A Time, he had lost his soul. But Sleeping Beauty needs her prince, and alas, Julian Morris has returned to Vancouver to continue filming his role as Prince Phillip.
Julian flew in with Mulan, Jamie Chung and both stopped to sign some photos for us. Julian is a very cool guy and gladly signed the pics we had.

Josh Dallas & Ginnifer Goodwin

We were planning on taking a day off from autographs today and had a relaxing afternoon before heading out to dinner.
We went downtown, parked our car and looked across the street to see Josh Dallas & Ginnifer Goodwin paying their meter. They spotted us and said hi and walked over to us. Since we got Ginnifer earlier this week we only asked Josh to sign a couple photos and he was, as always, super cool. We stood around and talked for a few minutes. It was a bit chilly so Ginnifer snuggled up close to Josh while we spoke. She said they had planned to go back to Los Angeles for the weekend but enjoy the quiet Vancouver life. She said once the winter gets colder however, they'll probably go back to the warm California sunshine.

I asked them if I could take a picture of them because they looked so cute and dressed up and they both beamed at the idea. Josh pulled his girl in close and they posed for the camera.
Best couple ever. They're just absolutely amazing, wonderful people and we enjoy every time we see them.

*If you're taking the photo to use on tumblr or a message board, please credit it back to us, thanks!*

Stephen Amell's pink ribbon and favorite toque - Autographs!

Stephen Amell left Vancouver today his Remembrance Day weekend. We caught up with him on his way out of town and as always, Stephen was super cool.
I had to ask him about that grey toque of his that he always travels with. He said he's had it for 2 years now and it's his old faithful. Stephen talked about how disappointed he was in CTV airing the episode early but was very happy that people are enjoying the show so much. He's such a humble Canadian boy and definitely one of the nicest in the business.
Stephen's mom is in the battle against breast cancer and he was wearing his pink ribbon patch along with a purple ribbon on his coat. He had a good chuckle when we had a bunch of shirtless pictures of him.
The video I took didn't turn out so well, but here's a few screencaps.

Fringe set - November 5th

We went to the Fringe set today hoping to get John Noble who you can basically only get on set and we were lucky as Blair Brown, Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson & John were all on set today.
They filmed a bunch of scenes and John Noble and Anna Torv both came over to sign a few photos for us. They filmed a bit more and we got Blair to sign a couple (and complete a combo photo of her and Anna) on her lunch break.
Olympic soccer bronze medalist Karina Leblanc was filming as an extra today and at one point let Joshua Jackson wear her medal.

Matthew Davis voted

Matthew Davis was on our favorite tv show The Vampire Diaries, so anytime we can get his autograph, it's a good day.

Matt flew down to Los Angeles for one day just to vote. He proudly showed off his "I Voted" sticker and spoke about how he hopes America gets it right.
We had a new photo of Matt from the season 4 of Vampire Diaries when he filmed a little cameo and he really enjoyed it. He said he really misses his TVD buddies.
