Here at LFCC 2019 we have the wonderful William Shatner. With a career spanning over six decades, Shatner is an icon of TV and film, and has starred in some of the most popular shows of our time.
His most iconic role to date has to be Captain James Tiberius Kirk in Star Trek. This role helped kick-start a franchise so big that it’s still spawning new shows today. Kirk is universally recognised by fans of sci-fi.
Shatner had a career in TV for years before he won the role of Kirk, with recurring roles in several shows including Dr Kildare, The Defenders and 77 Sunset Strip.
His role as Kirk spawned seven feature films which he starred in, and the Star Trek franchise branched out into popular spin-offs like Star Trek Voyager, Star Trek The Next Generation, and most recently, Star Trek Discovery.
Shatner can also be seen in other popular shows like T.J. Hooker, 3rd Rock from the Sun and Boston Legal, as questionable lawyer Denny Crane. He played the infamous Croatoan in TV series Haven, based on The Colorado Kid by Stephen King. This was one of Shatner’s less pleasant characters and he certainly creeped us out!
He is also an avid performer, with many soundtrack credits to his name, as well as being a writer, producer and director. He really is multi-talented.
Shatner is still very busy now, with several projects in post-production. He has taken time out of his busy schedule to come and meet his fans at London Film and Comic Con 2019.
He is joining us from the 26th to the 28 July 2019 and is a diamond pass guest. You can grab yourself a photo shoot ticket and try for an auto, or buy a diamond pass to ensure you get both, as well as an exclusive gift and if you choose the Sunday pass, a priority seat in his talk. Come along and meet the amazing William Shatner at LFCC.
