Last week, my classmates: Amanda Pflieger, Derek Bishé and I had the opportunity to interview some of this years Hugo Awards guests including legendary film/theater actor John Mahoney!! We also had a chance to catch up with local TV Personalities Val Warner, and Ryan Chiaverini. Val and Ryan are the hosts of Windy City Live.
Although checking out this years award winners was pretty exciting, I’d have to say interviewing some of the evening gest was still my favorite part of about the experience. Check out the video below to view some of the interviews. For more information about the event, visit:
