He was also refusing to have his photo taken with fans.

I still took a cheeky photo anyway though, lol.

When I met him, told him I was a huge fan of the show he was just like "yeah yeah, that's great" and I was kind of waved along so he could meet this next person in the queue. Made me feel kind of worthless actually.

So guys, there you go. That's what your hero is like in real life.
sorry you had a 'bad meet' - but i met him on the saturday and i found him to be very gracious and polite.

he couldn't have pictures taken with fans at the table as there were too many people that wanted to meet him. so in order to meet everybody the 'no posed photo' rule came into force.

he doesn't set the autograph price's. the convention does. he just gets paid a flat fee.

in las vegas last year at the star trek convention his autograph was 75.

looking at various pictures from the sunday he does look very tired compared to the saturday

sorry but he isn't a 'jerk' as you say - i can tell you a few stories about some real jerks i have met!
