Dallas Comic Con to feature Twilight actor, Charisma Carpenter
Also appearing will be Adam West and Alan Harris, who played multiple roles in The Empire Strikes Back.
Actor Daniel Cudmore, who plays Volturi guard “Felix” in New Moon – the latest in the Twilight movie saga – is scheduled to appear this month at Dallas Comic Con. Cudmore will sign autographs and meet fans on Saturday only during the two-day event that runs January 30 and 31 in the Richardson Civic Center in Richardson.
Joining Cudmore on Saturday only will be Charisma Carpenter, who played “Cordelia Chase” on the Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel TV series. Appearing both days will be Adam West, star of the 1960s Batman TV show; Herbert Jefferson Jr., aka “Boomer” on the original Battlestar Galactica series; and Alan Harris, who filled multiple roles in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, including bounty hunter “Bossk,” a Bespin guard, and a Stormtrooper.
The show also will feature 28 guest artists, including Heroes artist Tim Sale and industry legend Michael Golden in their first Dallas Comic Con appearance. Golden is responsible for artwork on The ‘Nam, Doctor Strange, Micronauts, Batman, Howard the Duck, and more.
Media guests will sign autographs for a nominal fee. Fans will need a Celebrity Access pass to gain access to the autograph area. The $20 pass is good for both days and also includes admission into Artists Alley and the exhibit hall. Priority Passes, available for $50, give the holder early access to the media guests. Only 50 Priority Passes will be issued.
General admission is $10 per person daily, and includes entry into the exhibit hall and Artists Alley. Children ages 5 and under are free when accompanied by a paid adult.
Dallas Comic Con hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, January 30, and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, January 31. Parking is free.
