Ashlea Daniels, Profiles Assistant Editor

Q: What are your interests?

A: I’m kind of a huge nerd so I’m really in to comic books and Sci-Fi series, like I’m trying to go through and watch all of the old Star Trek series. I actually go to conventions for stuff like that.

Q: What conventions do you go to?

A: MetroCon’s here, I went to ShadowCon once, and I’m supposed to be going to San Diego Comic-Con this summer for kind of a graduation present.

Q:What are you most excited about with going to the San Diego Comic-Con?

A: That’s where all the big stars are, like all the actors and everything so I’m really excited and I hope they have a Supernatural panel like they do sometimes.

Q: Are you planning on going to any of the press conferences besides the Supernatural one?

A: Yeah because were going to be there for all three days, they always have one for Doctor Who so that should be fun, actually being able to see Peter Capaldi, the current Doctor.

Q: Are you going to cosplay as anyone for Comic-Con?

A: I don’t know what I’m going to be doing yet, because it’s going to be me, my brother and my dad. My brother has a lot of ideas, like he wanted me to dress up as Vegeta from Dragon Ball Z and stuff like that but I’m just like ‘I’m not doing that’ so we’ll see how that goes.

Q: What would be your top picks to cosplay as right now?

A: I wanna do River Song from Doctor Who, she’s one of my favorite characters or probably Kaylee Frye from Firefly, I always thought that would be really cool.

Q: Who do you hope to see at Comic-Con?

A: Well I don’t know if they do a lot with Supernatural but I really like Misha Collins and Peter Capaldi.
