I’m excited to share that Dirk Benedict is coming to Emerald City Comicon next year!
The actor played two notorious ladies’ men on two iconic television shows of my youth. On the original Battlestar Galactica Benedict played Lt. Starbuck. The Colonial pilot blasted Cylons, seduced ladies but Apollo and the fleet could always count on him when they needed him. I admit I had the Starbuck action figure along with a Colonial Viper and Cylon Raider.
Benedict then played Templeton Peck aka Faceman on the classic series The A-Team. This was another great role to showcase Benedict’s charisma, charm and comic timing. The Montana native attended college in Walla Walla, Washington and performed in Seattle theatre productions before becoming a pop culture icon with two classic characters.
Benedict will be appearing all three days. Emerald City Comicon is March 1-3, 2013 at the Washington State Convention Center. Tickets are on sale online or visit a local comic book shop selling tickets – and pick a book or three while you’re there!
