In this episode of Anomaly, Jen shares a Shaun Astin panel that she and Sith Jen attended at the 2014’s Wizard World Austin Comic Con. If you don’t know who Shaun Astin is, turn in your geek card to the nearest Anomaly. ;) This Lord of the Rings cast member has appeared in many movies since childhood, several of which are cult classics, like The Goonies and Encino Man. But the roles he’s probably best known for are Rudy in the film named for his character, and Samwise Gamgee in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. He talks a great deal about his experiences during the filming of each movie as well as his voice acting career and his television series called “The Strain”. Shaun was very kind to the fans, and even had a system worked out for answering all the remaining questions before the allotted time ended. It was a great panel.
