Starstruck at Comic Con? We know what to say

So you're standing in the autograph line, ready to meet one of Tampa Bay Comic Con's myriad celebrity guests. Suddenly your hands go clammy, your mind goes blank. You're freaking out, dude! You're totally starstruck! Don't sweat it. We here at Weekend have prepared pointed, entirely unique questions for you to ask Comic Con's stars. Trust us, folks, we do this for a living. Sean Daly, Times staff writer

Jason Momoa

Ronon Dex in Stargate Atlantis, Conan in Conan the Barbarian, Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones

Autographs: Saturday and Sunday, $30 each. Photos $40 each (limit two adults and four kids).

Question: Your acting career started on Baywatch. Just curious: How long would David Hasselhoff's uberlifeguard Mitch last in Thrones' Westeros before impalement? We're setting the over/under at three minutes.

Maisie Williams

Arya Stark in Game of Thrones

Autographs: Saturday and Sunday, $30 each. Photos $30 each (limit two adults and four kids).

Question: Thrones creator George R.R. Martin just happens to have the same initials as fellow fantasy writer J.R.R. Tolkien. Pleeease. Don't you ever want to give him a nudge and say, "C'mon, George, your middle name's Larry, isn't it?"

Chad Coleman

Tyreese in The Walking Dead, Dennis "Cutty" Wise in The Wire

Autographs: Friday, Saturday and Sunday, $30 each. Photos $30 each (limit two adults and four kids).

Question: If there were a real zombie apocalypse — could happen, you never know — which of your Walking Dead co-stars would be first to crack? It's Andrew "Rick" Lincoln, isn't it? I knew it! Haha. Dude is sofffft.

Willow Shields

Primrose Everdeen in The Hunger Games and Catching Fire

Autographs: Saturday and Sunday, $30 each. Photos free with autograph depending on line length.

Question: Since your character Prim is Katniss Everdeen's sister, have you also formed a sibling bond with star Jennifer Lawrence? You know, like, she borrows stuff without asking? For instance that hair straightener that just sort of disappeared on the set of Catching Fire? You should totally "borrow" her Oscar to teach her a lesson.

Lauren Cohan

Maggie Greene in The Walking Dead, Rose in The Vampire Diaries

Autographs: Saturday and Sunday, $30 each. Photos $30 each (limit two adults and four kids).

Question: You played Charlotte in Van Wilder 2: The Rise of Taj. How did you prepare for such a role — besides cursing at your agent and wondering why fellow Brit Keira Knightley was getting all the good gigs?

Hector David Jr.

Mike the Green Samurai Ranger in Power Rangers Samurai

Autographs: Friday and Saturday, price not available.

Question: Do you ever slip on the Power Rangers mask to curry favor? Like at a club or a restaurant or a bank? Actually, wearing a mask at a bank is a horrible idea. Forget the question, Hector. Just sign our lunch box, please.

Rory McCann

The Hound in Game of Thrones

Autographs: Saturday and Sunday, $30 each. Photos $30 each (limit two adults and four kids).

Question: When you're on a date and things are heating up, are you ever tempted to say, "Release the Hound!"? That would be awesome. If we ever get a date, we're so going to try that.

  3. Tampa Repertory's 'Flying' soars in some places, sputters in others

    Stage

    TAMPA — Tampa Repertory Theatre has always insisted on putting on plays that mean something. Several shows over the last couple of years have zeroed in on the social and cultural baggage that comes with being female (The Children's Hour, Silent Sky and Grounded come to mind). None of those …

    YBOR CITY — Steve Bird spreads his tools across a patio table.

He'll uproot a fountain and dismantle a roof and attempt to keep his bar intact. The …
