Rising Star 8 would be the last convention I would attend in Southwest Virginia.
Again there were plenty of return guests plus lots of new ones including Frank Gorshin (Batman, Star Trek), Julie Caitlin Brown (Babylon 5, Star Trek), Herbert Jefferson, Jr. (Battlestar Galactica), and Anne Lockhart (Battlestar Galactica).
I’m missing lots of pictures from this event but I am on the hunt.
Frank Gorshin, who played The Riddler in the 60s Batman show and playing Bele in the episode ‘Let that be your last battlefield‘ of Star Trek. He was a good signer, but could be a bit arrogant. He WAS funny, but he did try too hard sometimes.
Julie Caitlin Brown (JCB!) play Na’toth in Babylon 5. It was her first big role I believe. She was a good first-time guest who has since gone on to bigger things!
I didn’t get much of a chance to talk to Herb Jefferson Jr and Anne Lockhart from the original BSG, but from what friends told me, they are both really nice people.
