wow ! he seem's to be exhausted because background noises !!!


I just have a question about the price of the autographs : why it's a paying autographs ? (20$ it's seems to be expensive isn't it ?) the actors are not remunerated for this conventions ???

my question it's because in France we have'nt got convention but free meeting with the artists (this are "marketing meetings" whith somethings to buy : tee-shirts, mugs, albums or dvd films etc.. very expensive) but the autographs with the actors are free ! but it' look likely the actors are paid by their producers ! I suppose !

Actors are usually paid to attend conventions. Fans usually have to pay for autographs too. $20 isn't considered expensive, although I think it is, and I would never pay it. Autographs just don't mean that much to me.

I guess the money helped Dean forget the "personal reasons" that prevented him from coming to the QL convention.

I feel this way if ever I got to meet Dean Stockwell autograph or not. It would be an honor just to meet him. Both Dean and Scott have brought so much joy to my mother's life when we would watch Quantum leap together. I would just say thank you so much and want to give Dean a hug.
As for the personal problems and why he could not come to the QL convention we will never know that is his personal business. My Dad when he was 74 like Dean is now he listened to his body if he did not feel well. Please Don't be cruel.

Hey, some people have to make money when other things aren't happening for them. Actors don't necessarily have steady income. So they depend on fans to pay 20 bucks for an autograph to get them through the drought.

The economy sucks right now, anyway.

Yeah, or they won't be able to afford their luxuries anymore. Yup, that's a "drought," all right. Haha! I hope you were just kidding, LunarCrystal.

I'm sorry, but, like it or not, Snish has a point there. It can happen to anyone, even to the best. I've seen that too many times. Now, that doesn't exactly mean that I have to be right about this, but, based on the way Dean gave his explanation as to why he couldn't go, I have to say that it's natural that someone doubts him, even if he was telling the truth. I'm not saying that Dean had to give a full explanation, especially if it was personal (understandable), but the point is that there are always going to be doubts no matter what, and, in situations like this, you'll never know who's right. You could be, but Snish could be, too, and there's another thing: we can't go on pretending we know a person just because someone close to us behaved that way. Truth is, we can't know a person. Sometimes, we hardly know ourselves.

We will never know why Dean was not at the Quantum Leap convention. Sometimes its best not to speculate about things that can never be known. Otherwise people tend to believe stuff that "sounds right" to them. Either negative or positive. Also sometimes its best not to scratch the surface too much, you may not like what you see.

That was one of the things I was trying to point out, that's why I said that, in situations like this, you'll never know who's right, so it's best to leave it alone. Sometimes we fall into blind speculation, no matter what side we choose. Anyway, there's nothing cruel to that, it's just natural. As for me, well, I think that sometimes there are things that need to be said and I can't keep quiet about them, after all I'm a part of this forum (a forum where everyone is always agreeing with each other - well, I'll disagree with many for a change, and not because that's my only purpose, but because that's my nature; it doesn't mean that I won't be able to find a lot of things to agree with, of course). I doubt someone will kick up any fuss for that, though.

Truly, I don't know why Dean didn't come to the QL con. So it's unfair of me to speculate. Perhaps my comment was unkind, but I don't think it's cruel. We may be sentimental about a TV show, but actors usually aren't. It's a job for them. So of course money is a motivator.

It's hard not to feel a little resentment when I spent nearly a thousand dollars to attend that convention, and he backed out at the last minute. And no clear explanation from him. That's entirely up to him, but the consequence is that a catty comment or two might slip out.

Thanks, everyone, for having a civil discussion about this.

Don't forget, though, that even though money is a factor (even actors want to eat , and they should or else they get all skinny) that doesn't stop them from caring about what they're doing.
And I recon they'd also enjoy some privacy about why they do what they do and have a life. Just like everyone else.

Right?

Right!

And besides, someone out there may know the truth, but we have to accept that it may not be for us to know. Another civil conclusion, I think?

Well, basically, we've been using circular reasoning to this point, so I guess we got to the conclusion a bit while ago.

Ah good, if we keep coming back to the same conclusion it's likely to be a good one methinks

I was at the Dallas Comic Con. The gentleman that posted his autograph from Dean.. I believe I was right behind you in line... I got the very last of his copy of that same picture. I think he had it labled #4.... I could be wrong...

Regarding Mr. Stockwell and him seeming "frail". I believe he just wasn't feeling well.. He also seemed a bit irritated with the general lack of knowlege about the show. Every now and again he would ask a fan a question.. very rarely did someone answer correctly. The Q and A session didn't go too well either (same scenario-- or someone would ask a question he as an actor would even know anything about. IE: What the writers and directors had planned for the next season that didn't happen). Also, in the Q & A the sound was so low on his mike that no one could really hear him up till they turned it up about 5 min till the end of his chat.
Aside from him seeming to not feel well and a touch of slight agitation, he was very personable and really pleasant. He allowed me to take his picture and very very kindly asked me to pose for one with him. His girlfriend took the pic with my camera. (I am very sorry for accidentally unplugging your laptop).

Here are some links to some pics I took while I was there.. I took all of these with the exception of the one I was in.
