Comic-Con Day 2: ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Big Bang Theory,’ ‘Star Wars’ & More

Day two of Comic-Con was filled with fan-favorite properties from the very first panel in the morning with “The Big Bang Theory” until the sun set in San Diego, as “Star Wars” took over downtown.

Friday was a big day at the annual mega-fest with “The Walking Dead,” plus spinoff “Fear the Walking Dead,” Marvel hits “Agent Carter” and “S.H.I.E.L.D” and, of course, “Game of Thrones.” Those who were lucky enough to make it into the jam-packed “Star Wars” panel were even treated to a surprise “Star Wars” concert to kick off the weekend — even those who didn’t make it to Con could jump in on the madness with Twitter adding a lightsaber emoji to every tweet with the #StarWars hashtag.

Check out the best quotes from Comic-Con Day 2.

“There’s no weirder moment in your life than when you look at Stephen Hawking and say action.” — “The Big Bang Theory” exec producer Chuck Lorre

“We both know how to kiss differently than our characters do.” — Mayim Bialik, who surprised the crowd at “The Big Bang Theory” panel, hilariously avoided responding to moderator Kunal Nayyar’s curiosity about what it’s like to kiss Jim Parsons

“Mr. President, Jon Snow is deader than dead.” — “Game of Thrones” director David Nutter in answer to President Obama’s question, “You didn’t kill Jon Snow, did you?”

“I don’t have an F-ing clue what’s going to happen to Margaery. Grandma’s not around to look after her anymore.” — Natalie Dormer on the “Game of Thrones” panel

“We are off to Hollywood.” — “Agent Carter” exec producer Tara Butters revealed the change in location for Season 2 of ABC’s Marvel series

“People you expect to be leaders may not make it.” — “Fear the Walking Dead” exec producer Dave Alpert teased fans

“There are no plans right now to conflate the two stories. Scott Gimple would kill me if I pitched that idea.” — “Fear the Walking Dead” exec producer Dave Erickson squashed rumblings of a “Walking Dead” crossover

“A lotta Motorhead, a lot of coffee, I play Candy Crush a lot.” — “The Walking Dead’s” Norman Reedus explained how he gets into character as Daryl

“You will see more Nina. I’ll be back. More mean and less dead.” — Bella Thorne revealed that her “Scream” character would be returning to MTV’s teen slasher series, despite being killed off in the pilot

“I’m fine! I walked here!” — Harrison Ford assured Hall H he is in good shape, following his first plane crash appearance at Comic-Con to promote “Star Wars”

“How many times do I have to say I’m sorry?” — Ford quipped about Han “stealing” Leia on the “Star Wars” panel, to which Mark Hamill replied, “I’ll get over it someday”

“I wanted to talk to Harrison about piloting. He said, ‘It’s fake, and also it’s in space, so the same stuff doesn’t apply.'” — Oscar Isaac on the “Star Wars” panel

“There is nothing normal about any of what’s been happening.” — J.J. Abrams gushed about being a “Star Wars” fan since he was a kid
