Jewel Staite Talks About ’Serenity’ Filming Experience

Serenity, Atlanta, and homeward bound (Jewel Staite post)

Hello to the faithfuls again!

I’ve been reading your posts about DragonCon lately, and I’m so pleased that so many browncoats will be there to "carry the torch" with me, so to speak. Unfortunately, so far I’m the only cast member due to be a guest, so I hope that ain’t too disappointing.. I promise to dish lots of dirt about everyone, though, considering they won’t be there to defend themselves.

I also hear there will be a "designated browncoat table", which is very cool. I’m pretty positive they’ll have me very busy at this Con, but it sounds like there’s some fun stuff organized. They might want me to do a handful of Q&A’s, which I LOVE! I hope to meet every last one of you, and then some. On the 4th, I’ll be doting on Matty all day (my husband), as he is turning the big 2-5 (old man), so I’ll have to give him loads of attention and probably get him drunk in the hotel bar. We are both SO excited to be going! I can’t tell you how much fun we have at these things... It will be the perfect "farewell" to Serenity, as we’re going to Atlanta pretty much directly after our wrap party, it looks like.

And then after Atlanta, we’re going home to beautiful Vancouver. Just in time for winter.

And let me just say: This experience, filming this movie, has been the most wonderful experience of my whole career. I love this cast so much it’s silly. And I can tell you confidently that this "BDM", as y’all like to call it, is going to be FABULOUS. I promise. You are going to absolutely love what’s been created here... It will shock you and make you laugh and make you cry... which was the general plan. I hope you adore it as much as we do. All hail to Joss the Genius.

I will see you (most of you, I hope) in Atlanta in a few weeks! Until then, be safe and happy.

Love, Jewel
