Internet star coming to Supanova in her first Aussie trip
INTERNET star Felicia Day can't wait to experience an Australian comic convention for herself.
The star of Joss Whedon's smash hit Internet musical Dr Horrible will be visiting Australia for the first time for the pop culture event of the year - Supanova the Pop Culture Expo.
"I'm very excited to be coming to Australia," she told The Chronicle.
"I love travelling and I love seeing other cultures. I know a lot of Australian actors so I've heard so many stories."
Day, who can also be seen in web series The Guild, said she was excited to meet her Australian fans and couldn't wait for her question and answer sessions.
While she is in Australia for the expo, Day will be filming a segment for her web channel Geek and Sundry.
She said she was unsure of the content of the segment and was taking suggestions.
When asked why she seemed to favour web series' over television and films, Day said she loved "pushing the envelope".
"I love doing things that no-one has done before," she said.
"I love breaking the rules."
She said working on her channel Geek and Sundry was so much more rewarding because of the smaller budget they worked with.
"We don't have the same abilities (as television) because we're working with less and it's so much more rewarding," she said.
Day grew up in a house of gamers, so it was no surprise she ended up one herself.
"I just love it (gaming). My parents did a lot on their PC and when I was about six or seven I used to watch them play.
"It was very much a part of my world. It was just like watching television."
Day said while she absolutely loved playing the role-playing game World of Warcraft (she'd grown up playing role-playing games), Mass Effect was her favourite game.
She even went so far as to admit her "fictional crush" on one of the game's characters.
