NJ Stargate con day 3 pt 2

current mood: drained

The last con day

Day three Pt 2



Just before Jason came out they played a real neat vid of all his fight scenes that he had made or someone made for him. Wish I had taken a vid of it..


Before he arrived at the con he went out and bought a guitar to be auctioned off later during the Q&A for Make-A – Wish and would play it as well.


He talked about a prank he and Joe did to DH in which Joe was driving his truck and they got along side David’s Hybrid and Jason behind Joe dropped his pants and mooned DH who when seeing this just about lost control of his car while Jason and Joe were laughing like crazy.


He said he wanted to keep the wig since it was made from his own hair, but because of the movies to come the props people wanted to make sure nothing happened to it.


He enjoyed the fight scene in The Prodigal with Michael, the stunt guy for JM did the fall and  they did some takes with the stunt guy taking the tumble down the stairs but it did not look right so Jason was called out did a jump in the air landed on his front and tumbled down the stairs. He was a bit sore after that but it looked great and everyone was pleased.  

He talked about the stunt in Sateda where he rolls the triple barrel shotgun onto his foot and kicks it up to catch. Bamm Bam showed him that move once and he could do it anytime..though he leg started to bother him because they had him do so many takes.   

He enjoyed beating the heck out of Chris Judge in Midway. And Chris being older then he had to take it easy on “the old man” At one point during the fight Jason did a Matrix like backbend and someone stepped on his wig and he could not move until the person got off it.


He really gets into his character and even more so for one scene in Broken Ties when he was strapped to the gurney and begging Shep to kill him. He was moving on them so hard that he broke 3 of them in one scene alone.

He enjoys catching the cast off guard when he farts during a take (thank god he did let loose at the con..that we know of anyway)

I asked him about the scene in Reunion where he smacked the actor playing Rakai and if it was planed or not. He said yes he planed it. He just told the actor he wanted to try something different for that scene butdid not say what, so as the guy was “doing his tattoo” he said ow and hit him and the reactions for the others were real as well. The crew loved it as well.

His fav epi is anyone with him in it.


He then talked about how he almost died the day he went in to audition for Ronon. A friend of his had left the gas on by mistake and Jason was sleeping on the first floor of his three story home, when his friend came back he dragged Jason out and called 911. He was really out of it and he still did the audition and told the casting people what had happened before he got there..I guess they were impressed and he got the gig.


Then Jason got the guitar out and started tuning it up and someone asked who the better player was him or Joe..he scoffed and said he was since he had been playing longer then Joe.






Then came the auction for the guitar …two thousand dollars was yelled out and I turned to my left to see who had yelled it and it was the mom I made friends with from day one. No other bids were made so she went up with her daughter and had their pics taken with Jason and the guitar.


Then Jason left with the guitar that he was going to sign and adorn with tribal markings.


After a bit one of the handlers came into the main room and told my friends that Jason wanted to talk to them. So stunned off they went and about 20mins they came back and the mom was in tears, I asked what happened and she said that Jason did not think he was worth that much and he was really touched by the bid and was going to add their names to the guitar as well.

Then time for David Nykl’s photoOp.

While we were waiting for him to show up Jason comes striding into the room with two other guys (I guess they missed the photoOp with him but they were able to do it then, I got out my wallet and opened it to the picture I have of Thomas and just as he was starting to leave I said “Jas you and my nephew share something in common” he said “Oh?”  “yep you have the same birthday Aug 1st” and he got a kick out of that.
After he left I just about died when I realized I had called him Jas and not Jason..but he did not seem to mind.


A few more minutes wait and the DN came out and we got our pics with him done.


Then back to the main room before getting our autographs with them done.


Jason was first and then David….Jason looked upset and I guess he had a long day and was getting tired of people taking his picture all the time where ever he went.  


And that was the con ..fini.


I went back to my room sad it was over ordered takeout from a pizza place near by to be sent to the lobby. During that time my dad called and left a message “hey ET phone home” hahaha. So he told me what I needed to do the next day and I told him I had already did what needed to be done (checking  out of the hotel on time, taxi cab). I watched True Blood packed up everything and went to sleep.


The reason I was an hour or so getting back home was because around noon just outside of Willington Del, someone walked in front of a train and killed himself.



My autographs and stuff I bought/won





Was a bit upset everyone else had tons of different pics and Kavan only had this one.

NJ Stargate con day 3 pt 2

Yeah to bad he did not look that clean cut at the convention. He had a goatee which did not look good on him at all.
