Hey Sian, who are you here today as?
Sian: "I’m here as Samara Morgan from The Ring – the 2003 to 2004 version."
And what about you Michael?
Sian: "He’s been in character all weekend."
Why have you come as Samara?
Sian: "I’ve never done Samara before, and I don’t think anyone has ever done it here before. We also have a cosplay horror group, so I wanted to do a female horror character everyone recognises. It was a hit yesterday so I thought I’d do it again today."
Do you relate to Samara in any way?
Sian: "I think in a way she is misunderstood. She [became who] she was because of the abuse she went through."
And do you relate to Michael Myers in any way?
Sian: "He’s not a talker."
How many years have you been coming to Comic Con?
Sian: "Since my college years, in maybe 2018 or 2019. I keep coming back for the love of it, but also because people understand what you like – geeky stuff and all other genres. Outside of here, people don’t understand. You tend to see the same faces, all of my horror film friends love the same stuff so we keep coming back together."
Will you be coming back next year, Michael?
Sian: "Yes, he will."
