C2E2 2012

Post by vmars322 » September 5th, 2016, 11:28 am

Back in 2012 I was able to meet Chad Michael Murray (One Tree Hill, A Cinderella Story, Chosen) at C2E2. This was hands down one of my favorite celebrity encounters of all time.

Chad was signing copies of his graphic novel, Everlast. In order to get the autograph (and free photo op) you had to purchase the book. I think it was about $30. I remember hemming and hawing a little bit because I thought $30 was a lot, but I went for it.

I'm so glad I did. Chad was so sweet and friendly. When I got up there he introduced himself (which I always think is cute). I asked him if he was enjoying his time in Chicago and he said he was. He told me he loved the city, the food, the people and he mentioned Chicago was a great sports town. I told him that was all true and that I was a big Blackhawks fan. The con was going on during the NHL playoffs and that night the Hawks were playing the Coyotes and Chad was like "Oh, the Hawks have a big game tonight against Phoenix, don't they?" We chatted about the playoffs and how the Hawks weren't looking their sharpest, but hopefully tonight they'd pull out a win. After the brief convo we took the picture and before I left he said, "It was so nice to meet you and best of luck to the Hawks tonight."

And low and behold the Hawks did win that night in an OT victory! I mean, they ended up getting bounced in the first round, but still!

I will always remember that encounter and how nice and personable Chad was.
