Whew. How long has it been since the hit Netflix series The Umbrella Academy premiered? And since its release, fans can't quite get enough of them. Luckily for us though, the young cast did something a little special on Canada Day.
They organised a fantastic impromptu meet-and-greet.
And it all began with a simple post: "How would you guys like to spend Canada day celebrating with this dysfunctional family?
Check out when T.J. McGibbon AKA Young Vanya, tweeted out the specific location for the meet-and-greet:
She also posted this on her Instagram, and the rest of the young cast reposted her Instagram story to spread the word to fans.
Uh. Who else is seriously jealous of the fans who could make it there? We certainly are. And so today, the young cast met up together at the Richmond Green Sports Complex to celebrate Canada Day.
And it was a blast.
The Umbrella Academy's young cast was dressed completely for the festivities as they wrapped a massive Canadian flag around themselves for a picture, while all dressed in red and white.
Who else loved their dress coordination?
The cast had an amazing day at the parade, and they were there at the official welcome with the Mayor. After that, they stuck around to meet loyal fans.
Sadly though, Aidan Gallagher AKA Number Five couldn’t make it there, but that’s understandable since he’s most likely busy filming for The Umbrella Academy Season 3. Anyone else hoping he'll make it for the next one?
But at least everyone else was present, right? Eden Cupid (Young Allison), T.J. McGibbon (Young Vanya), Cameron Brodeur (Young Luther), Dante Albidone (Young Klaus), Ethan Hwang (Young Ben) and Blake Talabis (Young Diego) took countless of pictures together, and a few were even posted on their Instagram stories.
All in all, it was an amazing day. Who else wishes they could have been there?
And to think it all started out with T.J. (Young Vanya) posting:
“How would you guys like to spend Canada day celebrating with this dysfunctional family?
Ah. Umbrella Academy season 2 seems like it can’t get here fast enough. And now here we all are, hoping for yet another meet and greet.
Who knows? It might be one near you. Will you be there? In the meantime, we're definitely excited to see where their next acting role will come from!
