Really Popular Con Guest Adds Another Day Of Photo Ops

Hayden Christensen got a second day of photo ops (April 13) added to his time at SWCO, so if you missed out the last go ’round better jump on it fast.  Autographs remain sold out.

By the way, judging from a retweet I saw earlier today it seems unlikely Hayden is participating in The Last Jedi panel on April 14.  Someone who bought photo op tickets with Hayden said he’ll have to miss the panel because it’s the same time as his photo op.  It’s not impossible–I’ve seen autographing guests run in and out on a “break” or show up late because they were doing other things–but it makes it a bit more doubtful.  We’ll see what happens!

    His photo ops just sold out again!
    I find it interesting that when Hayden or Denis Lawson decide to do autographs & photograph sessions, people speculate that they need the money. I’m curious if anyone is saying the same thing about Forest Whitaker? I honestly think it has more to do with the actor having the time & wanting to interact with the fans. Not all of them have the time or want to interact with the fans.

    I don’t know if Hayden will be in The Last Jedi or not. I’m just hoping that this appearance at Celebration means we will see more of him at Celebration in the future. At least until I can get a photo op with him. 🙂 😉 🙂

      For a long time, people went on the con circuit because they weren’t working otherwise and it was a way to keep earning a living when your career has otherwise ended. The annual parade of celebrities, even people at the tip top of the A-list, at SDCC has done a lot to challenge that stigma. Top cons are also willing to pay the big bucks for stars because those stars attract more people (which in turn jack up badge prices and create hellacious lines but that’s another story). I still think there is a bit of a stigma attached to signing autographs and stuff even though somebody like a Mark Hamill or a Bill Shatner can rake in a huge amount of money in a single weekend. Years ago I was joking with someone in a line at a previous Celebration that somebody like Samuel L. Jackson or Ewan McGregor could charge $700 for autographs and still get a 12-hour line. In any case, Felicity Jones is signing and doing photo ops and she’s not hurting for work at all. She was an Oscar nominee just a couple of years ago. (And is the only other Celebration celebrity whose sessions have sold out.) Forest Whitaker isn’t hurting for work either. In fact it may be a very good thing prestigious actors are doing this now. Maybe in 2019, we’ll not only have the chance to get Hayden back again but also have some folks we’d never think would do these shows.

    Maybe Hayden will show up during the panel like how GL showed up at the end of the panel for a Clone Wars Season 5 back at Celebration.

      What do u think, LP? Possible?

    • Bayonne VeterinaryMedical Says:

      I only say that Hayden coming to the TLJ panel like GL coming to the CW Season 5 panel would b similar because GL was walking around Celebration on Saturday when the CA Season 5 panel was happening until he came in for the panel’s end. This might have a similar route with Hayden and The Last Jedi, especially since his autograph session ends at the halfway point of the panel for The Last Jedi.
