| HOLLOMAN, KIRSHNER, AND MOENNIG TO APPEAR AT L2 CONVENTION

Holloman, Kirshner, and Moennig to Appear at L2 Convention!!
LONDON – July 9, 2006
Should you be living in London or visiting during November 10-12, 2006, you might want to participate in the L2 Convention. According to “Starfury”, the success of their first L Word Convention in 2005 was so immense that they decided to host another 3 day convention to celebrate the L Word.
Potential convention attendees might enjoy a little background on the event to know what they can expect. The convention enjoyed its debut at a hotel in Heathrow last year. It hardly seemed likely that the event would be a success since it received very little press and offered a disclaimer that not all of the anticipated stars were guaranteed to attend.
Those who believed that the event would not be well attended by fans and featured guests were sorely mistaken. According to accounts of last year’s convention, the show’s actresses were greeted by what can only be described as a throng of enthusiastic and excited admirers.
Planning on heading off to London for this year’s convention to see headliners “Tina”, “Jenny”, and “Shane”? You will be pleased to know that last year’s actors were reported to be gracious, generous and grateful for their fans. They spent hours signing autographs and speaking with giddy L Word viewers. As for their feelings about the conference, Meredith McGeachie, who played “Tonya” said “This whole weekend has been thrilling. If I can make an impact on someone’s life for the better then I’m going to honor and appreciate that.”
Actress Laurel Holloman, who attended the event last year, was picked up by one of adoring fans. To the fan who literally swept her off her feet, Holloman exclaimed “My, aren’t you strong!”
While some of the actors kept mum about their private lives, Holloman was said to be extremely open in a convention Q & A session and spoke of incorporating her own real life pregnancy into the storyline. “Incorporating my pregnancy into the storyline was a hugely intense experience. I’ll be honored to show my daughter the series and tell her that she was a part of something great. I hope that, as she grows up, she’ll be able to see all sorts of characters on TV, and the L Word will just be one of many shows about lesbians.”
Her daughter didn’t have to wait for an introduction to the show very long as she was one of the babies in the song circle when we meet “Angus”, baby “Angelica’s” nanny.
Among the cast members scheduled to attend this year’s convention are Laurel Holloman (“Tina Kennard”), Mia Kirshner (“Jenny Schecter”), and Katherine Moennig (“Shane McCutcheon”).
Access to the L2 Convention at £85 gets you:
•admission with at least 3 guests
•one personal autographed item (per guest) signed at no charge
•entry to all guest talks
•celebrity “meet and greet” reception for first 120 attendees (Friday evening)
•full color program souvenir
•admission to parties on Friday and Saturday nights
Please note that the cost of admission does not include meals or accommodations, so please plan accordingly.
Reservations can be made online at https://secure16.nexcess.net/seanharry.com or by calling the order line at 07930 319 119, and Solo, Electron, or AMEX cards are not accepted. Other credit cards and debit cards are accepted with a small fee per card purchase. The order line is closed until July 19, 2006.
The event will be held at the Radisson Edwardian Hotel in Heathrow, London.

If this year’s convention is anything like last year’s fete, the current list of headliners is bound to create some hysteria.

Comments: Why does the title say HOLLOMAN AND KIRSHNER to attend and then inside you add Katherine?That doesn't make any sense.
2006-07-12, 10:36:32 AM
Comments: To my understanding THREE guests are confirmed: Holloman, Kirshner AND Kate. So, why did you just write Hollomand and Kirshner? I don't get it. It's just going to confuse people.

Comments: Has anyone looked into trying to start a convention here in the US? Not everyone hates America and I'm sure you would be surprised at how many people would show up if one was held here. Is Starfury only UK based?

Comments: Alas, a couple more weeks and I would be done with school. Probably a bit short on funds by then, too. If wishes were airline tickets....

Comments: Conventions need organisers, and Sean from Starfury has been doing them for years. He started (I think) with Xena cons here in the UK and expanded from there. One of the problems with the US is just that it is so big! Do you go East coast? West Coast? South? London is accessible from most UKers fairly easily, and also for Europeans to fly into.

Comments: Sean, Sean, Sean! Forget the coasts!Have everyone meet in the middle! Indianapolis or Chicago, or even St Louis. It'll be less expensive to put on, and midwestern cities are much more accessible.

Comments: FANTASTIC!!! I'M ALL BOOKED UP AND READY TO GO!!!! MET SOME NEW FRIENDS LAST YEAR IT WAS BRILLIANT!!! THANK YOU STARFURY . . FOR BRINGING LAUREL OVER AGAIN!!!I CANNOT WAIT TO GO XXXXXXXXXXXX

Comments: Did you know that from the over 200 million US citizens there are only 7 million with a passport??? Well, this is your chance to get one and get to know the world around you!!!! There is more out there in the world than the US!!!
