What is her Fangirl interest?
Bethany is Fangirl with many interests, but her top fandom is with Star Wars and Tolkien’s Middle Earth.
Why did you decide to shine the spotlight on this Fangirl?
Every time I see Bethany, she radiates great Fangirl spirit! When we first met at DragonCon, she was so friendly and sweet to everyone in the Star Wars rooms that we’ve been friends ever since. One time, I saw her at a theater screening of the original Star Wars movie with her brother and parents. She was so genuinely enthusiastic that I was surprised to find out later that she wasn’t feeling well that night. That’s Fangirl dedication! I always enjoy talking to her online, and my little Fangirl daughters recently met Bethany in person at a Star Wars party and thought she was really cool.
How does this Fangirl express her fandom?
Bethany is the co-founder of the Star Wars Report, where she blogs on their website and co-hosts their weekly podcast. That’s a lot to do with a full school load. She holds her own with her fanboy co-hosts with very insightful thoughts about Star Wars. She has also expressed her fandom on convention panels and always puts a smile on my face when I see her at local Star Wars get-togethers.
What is her favorite Fangirl item that she cannot live without?
Her brother, Riley, who also co-hosts the Star Wars Report. What could be better way to express your fandom than by having your brother has a support copilot by your side.
