Hi to all of you - -
So many of have met and shared stories at various cons over the years. I know we are all disappointed that no con, event, or promoter in the USA felt the 40th anniversary of the original show was worth celebrating. Richard was the driving force for keeping the original series and its cast visible and his passing unfortunately dimmed the light on the old show.
However I have some good news. www.comicconventionscotland.co.uk Comic con Scotland has chosen to celebrate the 40th milestone at their 2018 show in Edinburgh November 10 and 11. Dirk Benedict, Laurette Spang, Herb Jefferson, Terry Carter, and I will be there. I am also fairly certain Anne Lockhart will be present although that is not yet official.
So - this is likely the last opportunity for fans of the original show to see this many original cast members in the same place at the same time - get autographs, take photos, and listen to great stories from the original show.
And what a venue - Edinburgh Scotland. For all the European fans this is a fabulous chance to see everyone closer to home. For our American fans, what a great way to visit historic Scotland, see where they film Outlander and the Crown and take in a con.
If you think travelling to the UK might be expensive I would urge you to check out airfares and the hotel rates. You will find that in many cases you can go cheaper than many of the previous venues in the states.
To all of the fans of the original BSG - thanks so much for the love and support you have given us over the years. I hope you will all try to have one great final party.
