I loved his reaction to the outpouring of love for him. Those big, boyish smiles. The way he blushed and looked down, humbled. The way his eyes kept sweeping the crowd, to take it all in. And the way he leaned into the microphone, eager to connect with his audience. I, too, hope that this experience will leave him a little less reluctant to reach out to his fans.

Well said. I kept noticing too that in the videos of the panel he kept scanning the crowd and really looking at "who" his audience is. I bet the other cast members tried to describe a CC experience to him but until you go through it...not to mention this time the vibe in the room was very different because HE was there. *smiles* I was on pins and needles and so nervous for him because we all know that fandom can be a little crazy. Its so nice that he had an awesome experience! Commentators for CC keep writing that TW got the best question ever on a panel with the girl surprising him with the "slow answer" question. I love his embarrassment and then how he decides to make the girls day by doing what she wanted. What a guy!

I wonder if even Tom's co-stars were surprised by the response to his appearance. I don't think they've ever seen people camp out in line for Smallville before, and my friends who were there (most of them Supernatural fans) said the excitement in the room was palpable before Tom stepped out. It was so awesome to watch the vids and see him take it all in, that big, happy smile spreading across his face! *loves him*

I was nervous, too, partly because I didn't want him to be uncomfortable in any way, and partly because I didn't want him to go back into hiding afterward. :) I was so relieved that everything went well, and so proud of how Tom handled himself. He and that special fan made that moment together, she with her adorable question and breathless adoration, and he with his sense of humor and sexy charm. As you say, what a guy!

I'm wondering why we're not friends! Do you mind if I friend you?
