Things To See In Chicago This Year
Tricia Helfer, who plays Number Six on Battlestar Galactica, is one of the special guests at WizardWorld Chicago this year. Last year we got to see Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars) who'd I never seen in person before, and in previous trips we've been lucky enough to see, listen to, and often even speak to luminaries like J Michael Straczynski, Harlan Ellison, Erica Durance, Neil Gaiman, Walter Koenig (Chekov/Bester), Kevin Smith, and Patricia Tallman ("Lyta" on Babylon 5), among many others. It's one of the neat perks of the experience that we always seem to add someone new, each year, to our "brushes with famous people" list. I'm hoping that the lovely Ms Helfer gets added this year, but we'll have to see how accessible she is, as often the TV folks require hours of lining up to see.
