The Geekpin: I remembered you said you like to play D&D. What class are you?
Trisha: Well that depends on what type of campaign we are in. If it's a low level campaign,
I usually opt for thief - I love being sneaky and using ranged weapons first. If we are able
to progress to higher levels, mage is where it's at. You simply become OP :)
The Geekpin: What do you like to do when you're not working?
Trisha: I read books, watch tv, play video games, see theatre & concerts, go to art museums, play lasertag, go wine tasting... I like to change it up and experience new things everyday!
The Geekpin: You definitely do! How was your
it was my first shoot with Kayhettin, his work is
outstanding and I knew the photos would
comes to public personas, Clark Kent is the
perfect choice. He's smart and handsome and
muscle-y and understated. I love how he's
humble yet totally kick ass! Bruce is a little into
himself for me.
The Geekpin: So where can the folks online find you at?
Trisha: Find me on Twitter @thatgrltrish or on Facebook or you can always visit
The Geekpin: Before we wrap things up is there anything you want to say or ask?
Trisha: YES!!! If you were a candy, what candy would you be??
The Geekpin: This was my first thought (after I was done choking from laughing). I think
I would like to be a Snickers Bar since I like to laugh a lot, it's one of my favorite candies
and cuz I'm hungry. Thank you so much for your time and hopefully I'll be seeing you soon.
Trisha: I dream about it every night! Much love and thanks for having me :)
The Geekpin: Hello Ms. Hershberger. Thank you for fitting us into your busy schedule. How are you feeling today?
Trisha Hershberger: Really sleepy, but then again it is a Monday morning at 6:30am lol
The Geekpin: Yikes! Early bird getting that worm. Describe yourself Twitter style (aka in 180 characters).
Trisha: I'm a "let's go to the carnival & win all the prizes & ride everything twice!" kinda girl
The Geekpin: I saw you cosplay at Comic-Con this year. How do you decide what character you want to cosplay?
Trisha: For me, it's a mix of what character I'd love to be and what I can realistically create with my limited sewing abilities. I took costuming classes in college, but I am definitely not a seamstress. I find a character I love, think "how could I make that" and then I try! Sometimes it works out and I bring it to a con, otherwise it goes on the shelf to be looked at later.

The Geekpin: Will you be attending more conventions this year?
Trisha: I've got VidCon coming up this week,
possibly New York Comic Con, and definitely
CES in January! I'm a tech head and never
miss a CES!
The Geekpin: What inspired you in becoming
Trisha: Funny enough, I decided to become
an actress after watching the movie "Big"
with Tom Hanks. He got paid to play with toys
as a toy tester. I never knew jobs
could be fun, but then I thought about it. I was
already obsessed with old movies
and realized actors were just grown ups getting
paid to play make believe...awesome.
The Geekpin: I never thought of that way. How did you get cast for SourceFed?
Trisha: SourceFed was another audition in the weekly roundup of auditions. I came in
with a few news stories prepared, did a short interview, and was in the studio testing
with Lee, Elliott, and Joe the next day! It's been a wild ride and I've learned so much
about producing & writing, in addition to simply being confident in who I am. I've made
some great friends and I wouldn't trade it for the world.
