Break out the hot sauce, the “Roswell”
crew is together again!
The incredibly good-looking aliens and their equally-attractive human buds reunited in Austin, Texas over the weekend during the ATX Television Festival — their first get-together as a group since the show went off the air in 2002.
Jason Behr, Shiri Appleby, Brendan Fehr, Majandra Delfino, Nick Wechsler and creator Jason Katims were all on hand for the event, with Katherine Heigl, Colin Hanks, William Sadler and Emilie de Ravin noticeably absent.
The cast had A LOT to catch up on and were very chatty during a small press conference on Sunday afternoon, opening up about how much their lives have changed since the cancelation of the WB series and revealing a little TMI from the set.
See some of the reunion photos in the gallery above and keep reading to learn 10 things you probably never knew about “Roswell.”
1.) Brendan Fehr Might Do ANYTHING for $100
This was definitely the biggest TMI moment of the conference, with Brendan Fehr — who played Michael Guerin — giving an explicit play-by-play of a dare that ended with him peeing his own pants.
Shiri’s shocked expression says it all.
I added some amazing HQ pics from the press conference and panel to the gallery. Majandra looks gorgeous in those pics. I want those shoes.
Majandra attended the Roswell reunion yesterday and I’m so happy she did. It was great seeing her with the Roswell cast. I missed them all. Here is a short interview with Netflix. Hopefully, they will release the full one soon and screencaptures from the clip. Enjoy!
15 years after The WB/UPN’s “Roswell” first premiered, the cast and creator reunited at the ATX Television Festival in Austin to regale a packed theater with their memories of filming the cult alien drama. Stars Shiri Appleby, Jason Behr, Brendan Fehr, Majandra Delfino and Nick Wechsler were on hand, along with creator Jason Katims and several hundred fans who eagerly crammed themselves into the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema for a trip back to the eventful New Mexico town.
In a surreal turn, “Jersey Shore” star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi — apparently a diehard fan of the short-lived but much-beloved series — flew in from the East Coast specifically to attend the reunion panel, and even asked a question during the Q&A. (The reality star asked whether the cast believes in aliens — Appleby and Delfino said yes, for the record.)
Katims recalled reading the first book in the young adult series that spawned the show and admitted to being “charmed” by the central love story and larger, more mythic themes. “It was an idea I never would’ve come up with on my own,” he admitted. “It seemed like an incredibly romantic idea to me, these two characters, Liz and Max, being in love but having this very real thing that kept them from being together. I’d never worked on anything that had the kind of stakes that this show had… That was the thing that I was drawn to, and I was also drawn to the fun of the idea.”
You have done some great projects- is there one that sticks out ?
Nope. Loved them all the same.
Who is the most interesting person you have worked with ?
Raven-Simone. I’ve never learned so much from someone. She is equal parts rascal and sage. I was absolutely smitten with her.
What actress did you look up to when growing up ?
I always looked up to Claire Danes. No one consistently blew me away like that. She is of another time and place. And always has been.
Favorite movie ?
Favorite movies are: The Green Mile, Edward Scissorhands, Frida and Great Expecations. I’m a child.
If you had a super power what would it be ?
Super power: to stop time. Great for naps and reading…and f-ing with everybody whose frozen around you.

Yes. Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. Donate!! Please?
