In an appearance at the London Film & Comic Con, the 29-year-old actor took part in a meet-and-greet session with fans — reportedly berated by event organizers because tickets had been overbooked, according to Dexerto. Even so, Quinn made the effort to meet with all his fans, according to one Twitter user, who wrote that "Joseph kindly tried to take his time with fans and this created a huge line/overcrowding so the staff kept yelling/pushing at him and fans to hurry up."



 

The next day during a Q&A session, a fan called Kimberley Burrows raised her hand to thank Quinn for his kindness. "Hi, mine's not really a question, it's just more of an extension of gratitude really. I'm sure a lot of us have heard what happened yesterday, whether it's true or not about how you were treated... I won't comment on it, but I just wanted to say thank you from all of us, we're really grateful you're sharing your time," she said.

Her message was then followed by a round of applause from the crowd which made Quinn begin to tear up. Burrows, a blind artist with a service animal, continued, "Thank you for signing our things and spending time with us, for painting our summer. You were just so nice to me and my guide dog yesterday and however you were treated yesterday, we are so grateful, thank you."

Still crying, Quinn responded, "Aw why'd you do that? It's very kind." Burrows also went to social media to share the pictures they took together. "My photo with Joseph Quinn and London Film and Comic Con," she wrote, "He loved the pose I chose to honour Eddie!"

"He was so sweet and held my hand between our photos," she continued. "This is what I referenced when I talked to him during the Q&A session thanking him for taking time with his fans."
