In one of our recent Lyles Movie Files Podcast episodes I was saying how Buck Rogers needs a film treatment. I always loved that show and didn’t miss an episode. When it hit syndication and came on every day during the week I was in heaven. So it’s pretty cool to hear that star Erin Gray will be one of the featured guests at Baltimore Comic-Con from Sept. 28 – Sept. 30.
For five years on nightly network NBC TV, Erin Gray was the American public’s image of the ideal woman. Her ‘Kate’ in Silver Spoons managed to have it all – marriage, family, and business career. And for the two years before that, she had redefined our public image of the beauty with brains: when Buck Rogers in the 25th Century became a hit series, her sleek, sophisticated ‘Colonel Wilma’ became a role model, and Erin Gray became a household word.
‘Erin Gray is an extremely accomplished actress and was a tremendous influence in her role as Col. Wilma in Buck Rogers,’ said Marc Nathan, show promoter for the Baltimore Comic-Con in a statement. ‘She’s accomplished so much in her career, which has now diversified into running a production company, Wu Wei Entertainment, as well as Heroes for Hire, which books celebrities for events like ours. It’s such a treat to have such a distinguished guest with us in 2018, and we know our fans will be excited to meet her!’
Of all the cons I’ve been to Baltimore Comic-Con remains one of my favorites. You can get real access to the comic book creators and media guests without feeling overwhelmed.
