She almost instantly became one of my favorite Sci-Fi actresses when I first saw her on film as Adria in Stargate SG-1 and it’s spin-off film Stargate: The Ark of Truth; then as Inara in Firefly. I saw her live in person in the tail-end of the new “V” panel at San Diego Comic-Con a few years ago, but didn’t get a chance to meet her in person.

I went up to the long line, not knowing who it was for (this is usually the fact at SDCC) and asked some of the people in line. One of them said that Felicia Day and the cast of The Guild will be showing up in a few minutes to sign autographs. I went towards the back of the line, a girl...
