Sean Astin at Montreal Comic Con

Sean flew into Toronto last week to begin filming the pilot for Guillermo Del Toro's Fox series The Strain. But before he began, he took a side trip to the Montreal Comic Con. Update: 2nd video added.

(Similarly, this weekend he will be at the Ohio Comic Con in Columbus Friday and Saturday!)

Here are some pics from Sean's visit to Montreal, plus a couple of video interviews. First, the best pic of the Montreal Comic Con!

Sean with 9-day old Dean Elessar. Why yes, his parents are LOTR fans!
(Another pic with baby at the end of post!)

Then it was time to get down to the business of signing autographs.

Sean Astin and Margot Kidder interviewed each other on CHOM 97.7 radio.

Sean protects Spiderman from The Hulk?

Time for photo ops!

That evening Sean ran a 10K Night Race, his time a zippy 54:29.
Sean is training for the Chicago Marathon on October 13.

On Sunday, Sean did a Q&A session.

A moody shot

He checked his iPhone so he could show the audience photos from the night run!

Not sure what is going on here, but they're having fun!

Back to the autograph table.

And more photo ops

Sean was interviewed by Elysia Bryan-Baynes of Global News.

Watch the video here, Sean appears at ~1:50.

"No one will notice if I take this with me, will they??"

  1. "It's gonna take about a week to get that smile off her face." LOL! Yep, that's the Sean-effect. ;) Though I think her colleague is greatly underestimating the situation here. About a month is more like it.
