Nathan Fillion’s Birthday

March 27 is Nathan Fillion’s birthday!

Canadian actor Nathan Fillion was born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada in 1971. He is most famous for his role in the ABC television series Castle, where he portrays a mystery writer named Richard Castle who shadows Detective Beckett as research for a character in his new novel series.

For his birthday this year, Nathan Fillion isn’t asking for presents; He’s asking for water. Here’s what he wrote on his donation page:

Last year, you helped celebrate my birthday by building several wells for over 3000 people. That’s something none of us can do on our own, but together with My Charity Water it’s a piece of cake. But, don’t send cake. We want water. Let’s build even more wells this year.

National Science Fiction Day

We celebrate National Science Fiction Day on January 2 to honor the birthday of Isaac Asimov. Asimov is considered one of the “Big Three” science fiction writers of his time, and his more than 500 works of fact and fiction span all ten major categories of the Dewey Decimal System.

Today is a day to celebrate the beloved genre of science fiction. Take some time today to sit down with a science fiction novel, or have a science fiction movie marathon. If you are a true sci-fi geek, you may even spend your day building a robot or hovercraft!
