COLONEL WILMA DEERING HEADS TO THE COLOSSEUM!
Windsor ComiCon Welcomes Erin Gray to its 2019 Guest Line-Up.
Windsor, ON. Windsor ComiCon presented by Cartoon Kingdom is excited to welcome Erin Gray to this year’s guest line-up. Gray, who portrayed Colonel Wilma Deering in the classic hit Buck Rogers in the 25th Century (1979), which debuted on September 20, 1979; almost 40 years to the day of her upcoming appearance to the show, which will be taking place at Caesars Windsor; September 21-22, 2019 served a pivotal inspiration to women currently serving in the military. She also paved the way for women in leadership roles, which are more evident in wildly successful shows of today trough the likes of Captain Kathryn Janeway aboard the USS Starship Voyager and Captain Kara “Starbuck” Thrace in Battlestar Galactica that were played by Kate Mulgrew and Katee Sackhoff respectively.
Beyond Earth’s Defence Force fighting alongside Buck Rogers (and more often then not coming to his rescue), Gray was a recurring family favourite character through the 80’s hit TV series Silver Spoons as the loveable Kate Summers-Stratton. She also played memorable key characters in variety of other series as Diana Kimble in Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993), Chief Monica Johnson in Baywatch (1997) and Commodore Gray in Star Trek Continues (2014) to name a few.
