Now Playing Tracks

[On meeting fans] That’s probably my favourite part of this job. Even today. I worked last night until three-thirty in the morning, and then got on a plane and came [to DragonCon] and I thought, “Oh, I’m gonna be so tired.” Then all this amazing, positive energy, and people coming up and saying like, “Remember when you did this? This was important at this point in my life, and helped me.” And I’m ready to go out for the day. It’s been really neat.


It’s an old custom in the United Kingdom that when a visitor sees a money tree, he wedges in his own spare change. When you hammer in your coin, you make a wish. These trees are literally covered in the wishes of strangers. Most of the money trees are in Cumbria in West England and Portmeirion, along the Afon Glaslyn River in Wales. The tradition goes back to 18th century Scotland when florins were hammered into trees with a prayer to take away sickness.
