Not long ago, C2E2 announced that David Yost will be back this year. My understand is that he’ll be at the BOOM! Studios booth. Yost, of course, played Billy on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers back in the day. This shot is from last year’s convention.
That smile on my face is completely genuine. Yes, I’m a Power Rangers geek. And yes, there’s a fair amount of nostalgic warm fuzzies involved. But he was also one of the most down-to-Earth and friendly people I’ve met at one of these signings. David looks you in the eye when he talks to you. You get an actual human moment with the guy. That’s not nearly as common as it should have been.
As I recall, I saw him drinking out of a Starbucks cup. Being a barista myself, I asked him what his drink was. Venti black iced tea unsweetened.
David Yost: A great guy with a boring beverage. We’ve got to at least put some lemonade in there, dude.
