“Do you want to pet my lizard?” a fan asked at the “Daredevil” panel on day two at Alamo City Comic Con.

Actors Charlie Cox, Jon Bernthal and Elden Henson looked at each other in confusion. They allowed the fan on stage, lizard in hand.

“Woah”, the men said, as the fan gave the lizard to Jon Bernthal, and let him hold it.

That was just one highlight from the panel at the Lila Cockrell Theatre.

The panels at Comic Con gave fans an opportunity to ask questions, and interact with, their favorite actors.

Topics ranged from their personal lives, their perspectives on the characters they play and the general opinions they had about their respective shows.

A fan asked British actor Charlie Cox, who plays the title character in the show “Daredevil,” if it was hard to speak in an American accent.

“I have to work really hard with accents,” because they don’t come naturally to him like they do with other actors, Cox said to the crowd who cheered as he did his best to respond.

Cox wasn’t the only person to get asked that question.

Millie Bobby Brown, who plays Eleven in the breakout Netflix Original series “Stranger Things,” was also asked to do an American accent.

Brown was asked to rap, which she had previously done on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon.

She didn’t rap, but won the crowd over by singing Amy Winehouse’s “You Know I’m No Good.”
