I have been tweaking the Breast Cancer Research Foundation fundraising page which got me to remembering that it is almost 13 years since I first saw Ben on stage at the first Farscape Convention. I “met” him via email several months later and in person Labor Day weekend 2001. My early impressions haven’t changed. He is proud of Farscape and the work he did on the show, truly respects Claudia Black as an actress, he “gets” fandom, is introspective and private, and basically is an all round good guy. Ben’s birthday is in December and the fundraising celebration will start 1 September. A special shout out to fellow CaScaper Arlo for the photos!
