Though it’s still early in the convention, the autograph area can sometimes be a lonely place for celebrities.
Tens of thousands will walk by with either a look of worship, a slight tinge of recognition, a glance of bewilderment as they try to figure out who that person is, or even a quick peek of pity for those stars who may have burned brightly, then fallen out of orbit because of time or fickle crowds. The list includes former wrestling stars, obscure artists, semi-popular film and TV stars, and recognizable names and faces that give us pause — maybe even stirring a memory or two.
Erin Gray is probably one of the latter. A ’70s and ’80s star for her work in "Buck Rogers" and "Silver Spoons," she frequents the convention circuit looking to give back to fans. In a pretty empty session, she had time to take a few minutes for a few questions.
