MegaCon 2019: John Barrowman talks ‘Arrow’ and ‘Doctor Who’

John Barrowman is best known for his performances as Captain Jack Harkness on BBC ‘Doctor Who’ and Malcolm Merlin on CW ‘Arrow’.  He is known far and wide as the entertainer extraordinaire and MegaCon was no exception.

Barrowman entered wearing a trench coat that quickly was dropped to reveal his glittered Tardis suit, specially bedazzled by his designers. He immediately shared his story that he has earlier posted on his social media pages. “I lost my luggage, and this was in there (referring to his suit) and I tweeted it and I didn’t want it to go to Idaho.”

Barrowman continued, “What really made me upset was something that happened a few weeks earlier when I was attempting to sit down and the whole seat collapsed underneath me. I sat in the front of the plane (squatting), like this, staring at all the people. During takeoff! When we are in the air, they found me another seat in the back. There was one seat left. I told them that they better bring me my food and my drinks. They did, and you know what did with it, I gave all my food and drinks to the sweet little ladies next to me.”

When asked about his prize characters Captain Jack and Merlin, John shared that he loves both but “Merlin wouldn’t just sacrifice himself. He is selfish, even with his daughter. He wouldn’t die for his daughter. Captain Jack is real. He tries to save everyone like the doctor does, but will kill if necessary for the good of others.” The whole panel was filled with non-stop laughter and fun as John continued to share stories of times with his husband, daughter and fellow cast members.

Social media is blowing up with photos, videos and boomerangs of not only Barrowman but also him and David Tennant, as the duo reunited at this years event only to create even more fandom fun.
