Shortly after mum died I started reading geeky mags again. In one I saw an advert for a company called Showmasters and an event called London Film and Comic Con. Well, that immediately caught my eye, and as it was in Wembley I thought I’d give it a go.
I’ve not looked back since…
The guest list wasn’t bad. Simon Pegg, Burt Reynolds, Jonathan Frakes, Linda Blair, Rob Van Dam, Carl Weathers, Michael Ironside, Ray Park, Michael Biehn, Mark Metcalf, D. B. Woodside, Veronica Cartwright, Chris Judge, Dan Shea, David Hewlett.
Now, I really didn’t know what to expect having been out of the UK con circuit for a bit so I went but with not enough funds.
Burt Reynolds was swamped by young girls (which he seemed to enjoy!) so couldn’t get near him. I settled for meeting Ray Park from Star Wars, and Dan Shea from Stargate SG1 both were great guests.
I then wandered for a while and promised never to make the same mistake again.
