Spy Vibers in the UK have an opportunity to meet some of our heroes at the upcoming Comic Con in Birmingham, England. Listed among the special guests is Mr. "Jason King" himself, the great Peter Wyngarde! Peter has made so many important appearances in classics such as The Avengers, The Prisoner, Department S, The Baron, The Saint, I Spy, The Champions, and Doctor Who. You can check out my interview with Peter's biographer here. Other major guests at the show are Julian Glover (The Saint, The Champions, The Avengers, Strange Report, Jason King, Callan, Space 1999, Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark), Carol Cleveland (Monty Python, Sentimental Agent, The Saint, The Avengers, Moon Zero Two, The Persuaders), and art director Peter Lamont and designer Sally Geeson (Goldfinger, Thunderball, You Only Live Twice, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, For Your Eyes Only, Octopussy, A View to a Kill, The Living Daylights, License to Kill, GoldenEye, The World is Not Enough, Die Another Day, Casino Royale). Wow! And if that wasn't enticing enough, additional guests also include Shirley Eaton (Goldfinger, The Saint), Jane Merrow (The Saint, The Baron, Danger Man, The Prisoner, The Avengers, Man in a Suitcase, Strange Report, Mission Impossible, UFO), Valerie Leon (The Saint, The Baron, Smashing Time, The Avengers, The Italian Job, The Persuaders, Space 1999, The Spy Who Loved Me, Never say Never Again), Keir Dullea (2001), and Gary Lockwood (2001, Star Trek, Mission Impossible). All of the attendees are available for autographs and photos. The Birmingham Comic-Con will be held November 19-20. Convention guest lists sometimes change due to scheduling, so please check the website for latest updates. More info here. I sure wish I could go!
