Comic-Con: ‘True Blood’ star Deborah Ann Woll’s photos, survival tips

Posted in: Comic-Con,TV

Take a moment to appreciate the size of this event. The convention center houses 250,000 fans, plus all the panelists, security guards and people who make the event run. It’s quite an undertaking. (Deborah Ann Woll)

Hire a fleet of SUVs to ferry around the 13 panelists, dozen publicists, guests, security and hair-and-makeup team. How the HBO PR team organizes all this is a mystery to me. Way to go, ladies! (Deborah Ann Woll)

Appreciate all the little details that make Comic-Con a true delight. The thought that went into the Bugs Bunny silhouette on the chairs at the Warner Bros. booth is priceless. (Deborah Ann Woll)

As part of our Comic-Con International coverage this year, Hero Complex reached out to a select group of actors and writers, asking them to document their experiences in San Diego. Deborah Ann Woll, star of HBO’s “True Blood,” shared what it takes to survive the convention. Check out the gallery above and the silent videos below to see snapshots of the actress’  experiences, with captions written by her.

The panel day for “True Blood” is quite an amazing experience. Here’s a guide for getting the most out of the day and surviving the chaos:

1. Stock up on Advil and breath mints at the TV Line interview. Two very important essentials for surviving Comic-Con. You don’t want to turn away a fan with your bad breath, and any girl will tell you all day in heels will make you rush for the painkillers.

2. Take a moment to appreciate the size of this event. The convention center houses 250,000 fans, plus all the panelists, security guards and people who make the event run. It’s quite an undertaking.

5. Give some love to the fans as you walk to the autograph booth. They came such a long way and waited such a long time. Look how many of them! So sweet!

6. Appreciate all the little details that make Comic-Con a true delight. The thought that went into the Bugs Bunny silhouette on the chairs at the Warner Bros. booth is priceless.

7. Try not to swoon when super-amazing, exciting people are mere feet from you! OMG, you guys — “Edge of Tomorrow” signing!

8. Get cozy in the freight elevator. You love these guys and you won’t be seeing most of them for a few months, so take it in while you can.

9. Look out at the room of 5,000 people who lined up to get a sneak peek at this crazy show we make, and count your lucky stars that life could be so kind. The fans rock!

Thanks to everyone who came out and those who support from afar. Everyone at “True Blood” sends their love. Muah!
