InterWho - Whovian Estefania Juncal

Hello Sweeties!

Welcome to our next InterWho (Whovian Interview)..
I had the pleasure of interviewing Estefania (Esty), so grab a cup of tea and enjoy the read ... 

BBB: Please introduce yourself to our readers and tell us about yourself…
EJ: My name is Estefania, but most everyone calls me Esty. I am 31 years old and live in New Jersey, but I'm originally from Spain. I moved to the states when I was 4 years old.  I also speak French, and lived in France and Switzerland for about 8 months during college.  I love music, food, technology, traveling...all sorts of stuff!

BBB: When did you first become a Whovian?
EJ: I think it was sometime in late 2013 when my friend Ken strongly
insisted I watch because he knew I would love it. I knew I was in deep
trouble right after the episode "Rose." I just had to keep watching! I
wanted to be all caught up in time for the 50th anniversary, which I
did with plenty of time to spare.

BBB: What is your favorite Classic Who and/or New Who episode and why?
EJ: I really loved the 8th Doctor's movie. It's as far into the classics
as I've watched for now. There are many episodes in "new Who" that I
love, but I have a hard time picking a favorite. Basically the entire
RTD era was some of my favorite television ever.

BBB: If you could meet just one Doctor Who cast or crew member, who would it be?
EJ: Well, I've already met David Tennant three times {BBB: *YES! She said three times}, and he's my favorite!
I also met Billie Piper once at Wizard World Philadelphia.  AND I'm
friends with Colum Regan, David's body double in series four. I feel
so connected to the cast already, haha!

Esty gifted David Tennant his inspired 
Blue Box Balm "Allons-y!" Lip Balm!
BBB: Who is your favorite Doctor and why?
EJ: As I mentioned above, David Tennant is my favorite. When I watch him play the Doctor, it becomes more than just watching a tv show. David Tennant IS the Doctor.  When I watch him on screen I don't even feel like he is acting half the time. You can tell that he is doing this as a true fan of the show.

BBB: Who is your favorite companion and why?
EJ: I loved Rose & Donna the most because I could relate to them. Women who didn't think they were anything special and by the end of their runs, they were so empowered.  They always make me feel like I can do anything.

BBB: If you could travel with The Doctor in his TARDIS to any time and/or place, where would you like to go?
EJ: I have thought about this often, actually, and I can never decide on a specific time or a place. I'd definitely rather visit the past more than the future. I'm afraid if I see the future then the present will
look so boring while I wait for the world to catch up to what I already saw. But to see the world throughout different points in history would be awesome.

BBB: Are you in any other fandoms besides Doctor Who? Such as Torchwood or Sherlock?
EJ: I started Torchwood but haven't finished it yet. I am in so many fandoms, though, I have lost track! Stargate, X-Files, Arrow, Flash, Firefly, Supernatural...the list goes on and on.

BBB: Tell us about your business or hobbies even if they are not related to Doctor Who..
EJ: I am the personal IT girl to most my friends, family and coworkers.  I answer all of their techie questions and concerns.  I love spending time with my two dogs Chico, a chihuahua/Jack Russel mix, and Rocky, a great dane/dalmatian/lab mix. They are my boys and the bestest thing to come home to. I am usually humming or singing a song, as music is a very important!

BBB: Tell us your favorite product from Blue Box Balm..
EJ: My absolute favorite favorite product from BBB is the Meta 10 lip balm. The vanilla and rose combination is just perfect. I bought this practically in bulk because I love it so much!

***Special! In honor of Estefania's favorite product, Blue Box Balm is offering Meta 10 Lip Balm for just $2! This special offer ends 3/22, so hurry!

BBB: Can our readers follow you on social sites?

BBB: Is there anything you would like to add before we wrap up this interview (such as conventions you gone to, cast you have met, a collection you have, etc)?
EJ: I have been to 4 cons so far. Wizard World Raleigh & Philly, NJ Comic Con and recently I volunteered at Heroes & Villains Fan Fest here in NJ. You can read about that in my blog.

For WW Raleigh, I helped Colum Regan get a copy of his, at the time, almost released book The Fly Guy to David Tennant. David and I ended up having a nice conversation about Cardiff and Colum. When I saw David again at WW Philly he actually remembered me, which was WILD.

Esty and Colum

I visited Cardiff in April 2015 where I met up with Doctor Squee and fellow balmer Melissa. We visited the Doctor Who Experience, a place I never thought I'd ever get to see.  I also met up with Colum who took me to Southerndown, but Whovians know it as Bad Wolf Bay. Cardiff was a life-changing experience for me - I'll be visiting again later this year :)
