Nathan Fillion Tweets About Fan Encounter

Nathan Fillion, current star of ABC’s Castle and formerly of Firefly/Serenity fame, decided to share a recent encounter he had with a fan via his Twitter account:

“Had a guy approach me on street. All he did was nod and say, “Captain.” That’s all he needed to say.”

For those of you who didn’t catch it, the fan was clearly referencing his character Malcolm Reynolds, captain of the firefly-class spaceship Serenity in the movie of the same namesake.

In addition to making me truly believe xkcd contains the most accurate social commentary of any web comic, Fillion clearly misses his portrayal every bit as much as the fans.

  6. Nathan Fillion seems like such a nice/cool guy. I remember when he randomly showed up at the Browncoats booth for Comic-con 2009.
