I had the opportunity to meet Dean Cain at the Vancouver Fan Expo. It was everything I could have imagined. I got tickets for my birthday, I was going to do a photo op with Superman, but you only had literally seconds with him. You said a quick hello, took the picture then move on. I knew I wanted more time with Dean, have more of a one on one time with him without being rushed. There was an area where the celebrity guests were signing autographs and I knew this was my moment so my brother pitched in for an autograph. There wasn’t anyone in the line so the timing of it was perfect. I know I could have a bit of time with Dean without feeling bad about holding up the line. When you paid you got to pick what picture you wanted to him to sign and personalize. I of course, choose the classic superman.
I was so nervous I was shaking. He was all smiles. He is the sweetest person. He gave me a several hugs throughout the conversation. He would reach across the table and grab my hands. Maybe he was sensing I was nervous and wanted to calm me down, but either way, I was holding hands with Dean Cain. We talked about his son and he showed me a ring someone had made him. It’s like we known each other for years. Dean was willing to talk about anything. The topic of tattoos came up very briefly when he saw my Disney tattoos. I mentioned I was taking a picture with him later and he was honored I was doing that. He is such a sweetheart. I was able to tell him things I always wanted to say to him, but of course there was a couple things I missed telling him. I was running on my nervousness. I was literally shaking like a leaf by the time I was done talking to him. I was one of the first people in line for the picture and he remembered me, maybe it’s because he saw me 10 minutes before or he just has a awesome memory. He asked how I wanted to pose for a picture, I told him and we took the picture in each other's arms. It’s a memory to last a lifetime. I've been on cloud 9 since then. This Dean Cain high will never go away.
