Lindalee Rose catches up with Actress Billie Piper (Rose Tyler) to Chat and Sing at the 2014 Gallifrey One Doctor Who Convention.
British Singer and Actress Billie Piper made one of her first USA Doctor Who convention appearances in Los Angeles, California over President’s Day Weekend in late February 2014. As one of the most popular of the Doctor’s Companions, it was a real treat when she volunteered to sit down for a few minutes with our own 5 1/2 year old resident Whovian; Lindalee.
Of course with Lindalee, the traditional Doctor Who fan questions are tossed out the window and the honest and fun inquiries of a young fan are always a treat to watch.
With the ever-growing popularity of Doctor Who in the past few years, the need for Whovians (devotee’s of the hit BBC show) to express their love and support culminated last weekend at Gallifrey One, the world’s largest and longest running annual fan-run Doctor Who convention. What started out 25 years ago as small fan convention that pulled in a few hundred fans, drew in over 3700 attendees over the 2014 President’s Day weekend. With celebrity appearances from Colin Baker (6th Doctor), Paul McGann (8th Doctor), Billie Piper (Companion: Rose Tyler), Arthur Darvill (Companion: Rory Williams) and dozens of other guests, fans of all ages were in for a treat. In addition to autograph signings, there were specialty panels, themed puppet shows, reunion panels, a giant vendor room and tons of photo-ops with guests dressed like their favorite time-lord, alien species, menacing robots or feisty female companions.
Our own resident Whovian, 5 1/2 year old Lindalee Rose returned for her 2nd year at Gallifrey One. Having gotten her 1st big break at last years event, her excitement was unbridled for the opportunity to return and connect with fellow Doctor Who fans and to interview some of the cast of the show. We’ve compiled a best of Gallifrey One 2014 video that our web-series crew captured with Lindalee Rose during her adventures in space, time…and the Marriott Los Angeles Airport Hotel.
After a year away from Earth and her mother, Rose Tyler wrestles with regret and the new knowledge she has about the universe. Little does she know the forces of the universe are about to make their presence known in London, and things will never be the same again!
