Gallifrey One 2012: Mark Sheppard
I was really looking forward to Mark Sheppard at Gallifrey One 2012. I sat at his panel on Saturday afternoon which he shared with his father, Morgan Sheppard. Mark is always a good guest to have speak on stage because he is always very honest, straight forward and blunt – but he manages to remain very kind and playful towards the fans. The banter between him and his father was also fun to watch. Both men definitely share the same sense of humor and take pride in their body of work.
Mark definitely takes joy out of attending different conventions and seems to be grateful to be a part of everyone’s fandom. It would be great if he returns to Doctor Who at some point.
Mark answered all kinds of questions and even brought up his character from Supernatural a lot. I thought it was an interesting point he raised when he asked the fans if we “were sure Crowley was a demon” — which I never even considered beforehand.
Morgan joked about how he had to pretend over the phone with SAG that acting in Doctor Who was his “dying” wish as an old man. Although the SAG agent did not believe him since everyone knew he was still quite a hardworking actor in the business despite his age.
