What a Thor-tastic week I'm having. Not only did I get to attend the Hollywood movie premiere of Thor on Monday evening, but today I got to meet the 'Lady Sif' herself, Jaimie Alexander.

The Norse mythological Goddess of War was the special guest at a Thor movie signing at Golden Apple Comics (my favourite L.A. comic store) on Melrose Avenue.

Marvel writer and producer Craig Kyle was also there in his capacity of co-producer on the Thor movie.
I'm still slightly starstruck as she was so friendly and signed a Thor poster and special Thor movie X-Men variant, featuring her character 'Sif' and 'Volstagg' of the Warriors Three in an homage to Saturday Night Fever.

I think my accent threw her for a moment and like many Americans she thought I was Kiwi or Australian, but I explained that I'm Welsh like the All-Father himself, 'Odin', her Thor co-star Anthony Hopkins.

She was lovely and was more than happy to pose for a couple of pictures and even suggested the funny pic.
If you're a Marvel fan, be sure to also check out these photos of Odin's Throne from the Thor premiere at my Hollywood Movie Costumes and Props blog.
It's not often I get this close to a movie star and get a chance to chat with them, so I had a great time (you can probably tell from the big smile).
Aside from being a striking beauty, this Goddess of War also had lots of personality.
I really liked her in the TV show Kyle XY, but I hope Thor does well when it opens here in the States on Friday and we get to see more of her in action as Sif in the future.
Make Mine Marvel...
