Welcome to this website dedicated to the extraordinary British actor Tom Mison. Tom is known for his roles in Lost in Austen, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen and Parade's End. Tom currently plays Ichabod Crane on the hit television series Sleepy Hollow.
Tom charmed the socks off yet another Comic Con this past weekend in Las Vegas. He started off by tossing granola bars and handing out Red Bull from the goody bag waiting at the signing table for him when he first arrived, then proceeded to take a few moments with each fan to chat, take selfies and patiently sign photos, bags and memorabilia for everyone waiting. He had several signing sessions throughout the weekend, as well as a lightning fast photo op with fans each day - those Con photographers do not mess around.
This was the inaugural event for Wizard World in the Las Vegas venue. Attendance wasn't huge, but it was refreshing to be able to walk a Con floor and not get jostled around by backpacks and cosplay weapons/wings/appendages for a change. The Las Vegas Convention Center was a bit out of the way, but easily reached by monorail, and being in Vegas, had the added bonus of plenty of restaurants and entertainment available outside the con. Perfect for, say, a large group of Sleepyheads to get together and support the very talented actor who plays their favorite cantankerous, time traveling Revolutionary War Captain and Witness (with a capital W). Lucky for us, they offered the "Tom Mison VIP Experience," so waiting on lines was kept to a minimum, and we got seats in the first two rows at the panel with no problem at all. Well worth the expense.
Photos, including the ones above, are up in the galleries - there are more to come, so check back over the next few days. Tom also did a really fun, fairly casual panel, with fans asking the questions and getting pretty vocal from the audience. A few times the panel in the next room got a little too loud and Tom and moderator Chris Payne decided to retaliate, leading the audience in a group fangirl scream to counteract it. All while Tom flipped them off. PRICELESS.
Below you'll find video of the first part of the panel - parts 2 and 3 (with the aforementioned flipping off) will follow soon.
