Unusual Company, in association with CS&D, are pleased to announce celebrity guests Susan Backlinie and Noah Hathaway at this year’s Baltimore Comic-Con on October 22-24, 2021. Tickets are on sale now!
Susan Backlinie is best known as the swimmer in the opening scene who becomes the first victim of the shark in Jaws (1975). She later spoofed this scene in Spielberg’s movie 1941 (1979), but encounters a Japanese submarine instead of a toothy fish. Ms. Backlinie appeared in her own pictorial (“The Lady and the Lion”) in the January 1973 issue of Penthouse magazine. Her last name is of Syrian descent, as is pronounced BACK-A-LEE-NEE. Susan is a former wild animal trainer who owned and trained a bear whose growls were later recorded for use as the voice of Chewbacca in the movie Star Wars (1977).
Noah Hathaway is best known for his role of Atreyu in The NeverEnding Story (1984). He also played Boxey on the cult Sci-Fi show, Battlestar Galactica (1978), and the lead role as Harry Potter Jr. in Troll (1986). Noah then stayed out of the limelight until 1992 for the drama To Die, to Sleep (1994). He holds black belts in Tang Soo Do and Shotokan, and teaches close-quarter combat.
