Sci-Fi Actor Appearances along with BayouCon are bringing Star Wars actor John Morton to New Orleans for a signing at BSI Comics on Friday, June 28th! John will be a guest at BayouCon in Lake Charles that weekend, but he is flying into New Orleans and will be signing for three hours on Friday afternoon (noon – 3 p.m.) before heading to the convention.
John played Rebel gunner Dak Ralter, Luke Skywalker’s snowspeeder co-pilot in the Battle of Hoth, in The Empire Strikes Back. John also suited up as Boba Fett (when Jeremy Bulloch had left the set for another film for a couple of days) and ended up in one of the main Bespin scenes. John was also featured in Superman II and Flash Gordon.
If you are in the New Orleans area and you are a Star Wars fan, this is your chance to meet one of the actors who was in what many consider to be the greatest Star Wars film in the series.

F.A.C.T.S is proud to announce its full line-up, with most recent the addition of “The Incredible Hulk” Lou Ferrigno as well as Adi Granov, comic-artist famous for his involvement in the Iron Man movies!
“We have been trying to get THE HULK to FACTS for years now and finally the stars and planets are perfectly aligned. Lou Ferrigno is a personal hero and whenever I put on a jeans jacket, I think of that amazing TV-series”, said Emmanuel van Melkebeke, F.A.C.T.S. Convention Director, with a disheartening honesty…
Also to have Adi Granov join the guest line-up is a thrill in itself. Adi has played a fundamental role in designing the Iron Man outfit as well as his allies and adversaries in the Iron Man movies. A Marvel exclusive artist with a major impact in both the comic as well as the movie business!
“I adore his covers to Iron Man as much as any normal FACTS-visitor would, but do not forget his Captain America and Thor coverwork as well”, commented to Emmanuel van Melkebeke.
These latest additions might not be the last even, but for now F.A.C.T.S. has a strong line-up!
- Charisma Carpenter: Buffy, Angel, Charmed.
- Torri Higginsoon: Tekwar, Stargate Atlantis
- Sherilynn Fenn: Twin Peaks
- Dirk Benedict: Battlestar Galactica, The A-Team
- Julian Glover: Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Game Of Thrones
- Keu Cha: Witchblade, Rising Stars, HEX
- Barry Kitson: Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, Legion of Super-Heroes
- Aleksi Briclot: Merlin, Spawn, Wizard of the Coast
- Aleksa Gajic: “Technotise – Edit and I” animation, Scourge Of The Gods
- Clint Langley: Slaine, 2000AD
- Minck Oosterveer: Nicky Saxx, Ruse, The Unknown
- Romano Molenaar: The Darkness, Storm, Lady Death,
- Adrien Floch: Lanfeust of Troy, Ythaq
