“Slowly, desperately slowly it seemed to us as we watched, the remains of passage debris that encumbered the lower part of the doorway were removed, until at last we had the whole door clear before us. The decisive moment had arrived. With trembling hands, I made a tiny breach in the upper left-hand corner. Darkness and blank space, as far as an iron testing-rod could reach, showed that whatever lay beyond was empty, and not filled like the passage we had just cleared. Candle tests were applied as a precaution against possible foul gases, and then, widening the hole a little, I inserted the candle and peered in, Lord Carnarvon, Lady Evelyn and Callender standing anxiously beside me to hear the verdict. At first I could see nothing, the hot air escaping from the chamber causing the candle flame to flicker, but presently, as my eyes grew accustomed to the light, details of the room within emerged slowly from the mist, strange animals, statues, and gold – everywhere the glint of gold. For the moment – an eternity it must have seemed to the others standing by - I was struck dumb with amazement, and when Lord Carnarvon, unable to stand the suspense any longer, inquired anxiously, 'Can you see anything?' it was all I could do to get out the words, 'Yes, wonderful things.’”Howard Carter, Breaking the Second Sealed Door to King Tutankhamun’s Tomb, November 26, 1922

Dear Mr. Urban,

I’m probably like many of your fans: I first saw you as the anguished Eomer from The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002, Peter Jackson) and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003, Peter Jackson). With layers of hides on your back and long unkempt hair, your eyes conveyed the complexity of your character: sorrowful, yet brave. While you were not on the screen nearly enough, those scenes that you did have were pivotal. What an incredible opportunity to be part of a project that so defined fantasy for a new generation – it is no wonder you wanted to be part of it. I believe the experience may have set your course as a genre actor and I would say, also as a character actor, in part through the physical transformations you engage in for your craft.

Dear Dr. Horrible,

It’s been nearly nine years now since we were first introduced. Three 15-minute episodes over the course of one week, and since that week, my life has never been the same.

To my very special agent Dale Cooper,

Soon the long and agonizing wait to see you again will be over. 25(ish) years without your sleek, black locks, chiselled jaw, and amusing quirks guiding me through the mysteries of Twin Peaks.

Dear Mario,

I’ve spent many years watching you embark on various adventures—to varying levels of success. I remember our first encounter with great fondness. Despite the pixelation, I could tell that you had a caring face and a warm heart. Over the years, you have always made it your mission to save others and eliminate threatening evils. The world, clouds, ocean, desert, and underground piping systems are safer spaces because of you. As you continue your mission for the greater good of humanity, I will keep admiring you and all of your strengths.

Dear Sir Patrick Stewart,

For the majority of my 36 years, somewhere near 30 of them, I have been fond of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Not only has this series been a life-long favorite, and I consider it my go-to for watching reruns of TV shows, I have always been charmed by your role: Jean-Luc Picard, Captain of the Starship USS Enterprise, NCC-1701-D. Your foundation of respectful candor, established inadequacies with children, and dealing with stressful situations with a calm demeanor became a significant force during my younger years. I hoped to be that calm. I hoped to be that leader. I hoped to be you.

To my dearest darling Star Trek: Voyager,

“We’re alone in an uncharted part of the galaxy.”

Dear Carrie,

The Force was strong with you...
