I'm gearing up! I think I've decided to dress like Mac when I meet RDA. He might think I'm crazy, but I don't care w00t.gif

I got to meet him in May of 2013 at Dallas Comic Con.

When I found out he was on the guest list, I had a fangirl geek out. happy_dance.gif After which my husband made me promise to not do anything that would get me arrested. biggrin.gif

I managed to get to the autograph line early enough that there was no one else there, so I got to chat for a bit about both MacGyver and Stargate SG-1.

The next day at the photo op, I greeted him in Choctaw (Halito) and he say it sounded lovely. He then put his arm around my shoulder and the picture was taken.

I found him to be a very gracious gentleman and would very much enjoy meeting him again sometime.

Be sure to check out some other threads for pics and feedback that others shared meeting RDA. Especially in our Backstage section. MacG.gif

Granted there are a lot of missed opportunities more than actual interventions. I did find these though.

I forgot where I originally posted this, but I met MacG.gif backstage at "The Tonight Show" in 1997, during my college internship for the show "Later . . . With Greg Kinnear". He was promoting the mini series "Pandora's Clock". Even though he wasn't feeling well, he had the flu I think, he was gracious enough to sign a role of duct tape for me. Two pictures of this can be found in the House Boat section, just type in Duct Tape - Signed By RDA. He was really cool, absolutely no hesitation in signing his autograph. I'm sure I'll meet him again some day, hopefully I'll be able to talk with him longer than I did the first time.

Oh - I think you mentioned this in the topic about your jacket.... ummmm... maybe in the wardrobe topic?

Anyway good to have it here as well. It's a great story. biggrin.gif

I'll be meeting him later this year.

Trying to think what I should get signed.... I'm thinking probably the cover of the first issue MacGyver comic as it already has Lee Zlotoffs signature on it so having RDA's on it as well might be cool.

Thanks. That's awesome, MacFan!

Where did you meet Zlotoff? That's pretty cool.

I'm going to have him sign the promo sheet and the box to my sak. I already have a photo with a signed piece of duct tape on it that I got as a Christmas gift a few years ago.

Hope you get the opportunity soon! I've been waiting for years. I almost traveled great distances and couple times but couldn't afford it. Finally, it happened. The five and a half hour drive wasn't too bad.

Just wanted to share a little bit about my experience meeting RDA.

Like RDA, I'm also a big hockey fan. I'm from western Pennsylvania and am a Pittsburgh Penguins fan. I decided that I wanted to give him something and went with a hat that Sidney Crosby signed for me. It was pretty cool to talk about hockey with him, even if it was only for a few moments.

Well I introduced myself and said first off I'd like to say congratulations to you and the la kings. He got a kick out of that and said thanks.

Oh, and you buy an autograph ticket for each item to b signed. I got a couple. I'm not sure if there is a limit, but the line wasn't very busy at all when I was there. I don't know what it'll be like tomorrow.
