So I was thinking about going, but then I found out that the ticket itself was on 99 EURO for a normal and 499 EURO for a golden one that gives you the opportunity to meet some of the actors, including Dean O’Gorman, Aidan Turner and Adam Brown. And then I saw that you could purchase photo opportunities and autographs. Purchase!!! I mean, if I shall meet them, I won’t PAY for it like you do with animals in a zoo! Pay to see a movie, yes. Pay to get to take a picture with Dean O’Gorman? Hell to the no!
I’ve never liked the idea of having to pay to meet your heroes. It doesn’t seem fair, like you’re so desperate to meet them that you’ll do anything. And besides, maybe they’re already tired after taking pictures with all the others who also paid to see them.
I’m sorry, I just had to share my frustration about that. But what about you? Are you willing to pay 499 EURO to meet ten of the Dwarves from the Hobbit?
EDIT: Don’t get me wrong guys, I mean that it is kinda bullshit to pay to see them. And I have done con’s before as well but I do not pay to meet people. That is just wrong to me!
