Last year’s Syfy holiday party at the NBC Experience Store was a cozy affair, and while last night’s festivities increased the revelers and took up more floor space, it remained a fun, down-to-earth gathering of on-camera talent and behind-the-scenes players. The food and drink was delicious (filet mignon slices!), the music at a good volume and the vibe just right. The proof is in the photos, at least the vibe part.

The only actor I did not capture on camera was the esteemed Charles Dance, whom I quickly said hello to. (He said I was too young to know about White Mischief, which I saw in college. Bless him.) Don’t worry, an interview with Mr. Dance is forthcoming (Neverland airs on Sunday) along with many fast and furious Q&As I conducted spontaneously with different actors at the party. Keep your eyes peeled for them throughout December.

Happy Holidays!
