The Baltimore Comic-Con will be back in the Inner Harbor on September 28-30, 2018 at the Baltimore Convention Center. In advance of the three-day show, Baltimore Comic-Con has announced the addition of Michael Copon and Sherilyn Fenn to the show Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
Growing up in Chesapeake, Virginia, Copon has been entertaining since he first took hold of his mother’s video camera at the age of 5 years old. He officially began his acting career as the Blue Power Ranger on Power Rangers Time Force while simultaneously modeling in various print advertisements and being featured in numerous commercials. These opportunities kept him busy until he broke out on the hit TV show One Tree Hill as Felix Taggarro, the bad boy. He followed this with roles in Bring It On: In It To Win It, Scorpion King 2: Rise Of The Warrior, That’s So Raven, CSI: Miami, Hawaii 5-0, Reno 911, Scrubs, Night Of The Demons and Killer Holiday.
Along with acting, Copon is also a seasoned singer and has toured with Bruno Mars. He is also a philanthropist who fights to both defend bullying with his “I Am Me” campaign and support kids with autism and shaken baby syndrome. These concerns are dear to him because his adopted brother has a traumatic brain injury. Through his film production studio “Michael Copon Studios LLC,” MCS has produced Worth The Price, written and directed by Michael, created a TV show entitled Dystopia, and co-produced the film Public Affairs, where Michael stars alongside Adrian Grenier and Mimi Rogers. Across his career, Copon has acted in over 21 movies, 95 episodes of television, and has produced 6 projects.
“Power Rangers fans have been after us for years to bring in one of their actors,” said Marc Nathan, show promoter for the Baltimore Comic-Con. “It is fantastic that Michael is joining us this year, and with the resurgence in the show’s popularity between the major motion picture and the BOOM! Studios comic book title with its recent controversial story line, we're sure Michael’s fans will be flocking to meet him.”
Best remembered for her iconic role of Audrey Horne in the groundbreaking Twin Peaks, Fenn has also enjoyed roles on the series Shameless, Ray Donovan, Gilmore Girls, and Rude Awakenings, as well as films like Wish Upon, Of Mice and Men, Two Moon Junction and The Wraith. Fenn recently returned for the Twin Peaks revival on Showtime and currently stars on the hit CBS series S.W.A.T.
She is currently filming the biopic of silent film era heartthrob Rudolph Valentino, Silent Life and recently published her first children's book called No Man’s Land, which tells the story of a child on the autism spectrum. Fenn will be appearing at the con just weeks ahead of her premiere in the DC Universe series, Titans, where she is appearing in the role of Raven's mother. Titans will premiere on October 12.
“I love that we’re getting a member of the Titans cast before the show even premieres,” said Nathan. “Sherilyn Fenn is a huge Hollywood name, and her Twin Peaks role cemented her place in the pantheon of modern actresses. Her fan base is fantastic, and we know they're going to be as excited as we are to get to meet her in Baltimore.”
VIP, general admission, fan package, and Ringo Award tickets are currently available on the Baltimore Comic-Con website.
