Tons of people filled the Pennsylvania Convention Center today,May 31 for the second day of Wizard World. The place where Pop Culture comes to life. People came in costumes. People came in street clothes but they showed up and spent money.
There were actors and actresses there. Yes,they were charging for autographs. a lot of the times it was going to charity. Linda Blair had an animal rescue here is the link to it. Her flight arrived late so that curtailed her ability to raise funds for it. She was super nice and would spend time talking with her fans. A real pleasure to be around. Lauren Holly was also nice.It’s a shame her handlers could not make additional time for her to talk about her new energy drink, Vemma. Holly was willing but it was not going to happen. Go here to read about it. Lauren Holly.com/
There was a huge disappointment around the Charmed booth as Shannen Doherty failed to show up. Fans were pissed and upset. They did not want refunds,they wanted to meet her. Wizard World management did not know if she would appear at all.
Marky Ramone was the special guest at Image meet and Greet.com. This service provides a video sent to your email address of a celebrity signing your item. It’s much better than an authentication. This is the real deal. When folks sell autographs on Ebay and other places,this video will give them proof positive that the autograph is real.Marky Ramone.com.
How often can you see a movie and talk to one of the costars about it? Not too often. Last night fans got to talk with Andrew McCarthy as he screened Weekend At Bernies. The 1989 smash still lives on even if Bernie dies in the movie. ” I get asked all the time and yes, Bernie is still dead”,laughed McCarthy. He is a travel writer now as well.surprisingly, many of the people attending were asking travel related questions. He is selling copies of his book at his booth at Wizard World.
Norman Reedus will be there this weekend. So will William Shatner. Henry Winkler showed up about 5:00 p.m and got right to work talking with his fans. When asked about his role in Ground Control, Winkler shot back “You must have been the only one to see it” In the movie, he plays a mechanic at a busy airport. He is best known ,of course as the Fonz on Happy Days. see his there this weekend as well.
Guys will like Sara Underwood and Candace Baily, who have booths next to each other. Two very sexy ladies who appeared in B movies, have photo spreads in magazines or made commercials.
Wizard World runs until Sunday.http://www.wizardworld.com/
