"There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians, or the Toltecs, or the Mayans. Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens."

It was a great pleasure to sit down with Mark Goddard (The original Major Don West) from Lost in Space.

Mark got his start on television with a role in the 1959  series Johnny Ringo.

Aside from his recurring role in Lost in Space Mark also appeared (among many other roles) on Perry Mason, The Mod Squad & The Fall Guy.

He also appeared in the rebooted film version of Lost in Space.

Shawn: What was your first Con experience?

Mark: In Georgia around 1985.

Billy Mumy couldn't make it so he recommended me to go in his place.

Shawn: How did it go?

Mark: Very well...as most cons do.

Shawn: How about the best Con you've been to?

Mark: I have always loved Chiller in New Jersey.

Shawn; How about the worst Con?

Mark: Never had a bad one as long as the fans are happy.

Shawn:: How about the strangest or most unusual fan you've encountered at a Con?

Mark: I guess the fan who wanted to cut a lock of my hair and I let him do it!

Shawn: Any actual bad experiences?

Mark: At Chiller one year, I was in a circus type tent when a mini tornado hit.

Pictures flying everywhere as artists got the heck out.
Shawn: What would you do differently if you were running a Con?

Mark: Just make sure the fans are well taken care of, and are treated with respect.

Shawn: Ever want to get an autograph?

Mark: I used to get some for my students when I taught school.

Shawn: What projects are you current!ly working on?

Mark: I am currently working on my second book.

The first was To Space and Back which has been very well received by my fans at MGAS on Facebook.

Shawn: What future projects do you have in mind?

Mark: Only to continue writing, as ideas come up!
