cara_chapel took these great photos of Sean Astin at Dragon*con, earlier today (August 31, 2008). He was on a panel called "A Taste of Strawberries: Remembering the Shire".

o.O Wow, he looks kind of... old. I don't mean this in a bad way. It's just a bit startling.

i always feel like he's probably such a cool dad. not 'cool' as in over-permissive, but just... really loving and there for his kids.

i'm wondering if the lighting isn't a big part of why he looks so different/older. it's not the most flattering (the lighting).

I think he's more of a warm dad: maybe not cool but lots of love and attention. And of course, I'm willing to bet he worries too much.

And I totally agree, the lighting is probably overhead florescent in a conference room, guaranteed to bring out the worse in everyone :-(

PS Do you happen to do any kind of IM or chat?

yeah, he's definitely not all washed out, which is great. and a good reason to keep going to cons, right? better photos! ;)

He's such an interesting combination of earnest and sweetly-geeky. I've always thought he's cute and still think his was a very good performance - making all those tears realistic was a rather impressive bit of acting. There's a good reason they gave that speech to Sam, it may be the best speech in the trilogy.

Thanks for the great pictures and for sharing.
