He made his film debut in Lord of the Flies (1963), and quickly became known internationally for his roles as Friedrich von Trapp in the film The Sound of Music and as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the 1970s television series The Amazing Spider-Man. Mr. Hammond is flying all the way in from Australia to meet and sign autographs for fans!
She is best known for her portrayal of nurse-turned-vigilante Shirley Daniels on the hospital drama St. Elsewhere. Comic book fans know her as photographer Julie Masters, a regular on the same Spider-Man series, and with Nicholas Hammond coming to the convention it seems fitting we have a reunion. Besides tons of other acting roles, Ellen has a unique surprise: She was the stunt double for Margot Kidder's Lois Lane in the SUPERMAN movies!
Wayborn portrayed screen legend Greta Garbo in The Silent Lovers (1980) which brought her to the attention of the producers of the James Bond films.
She was cast as Magda in the James Bond film Octopussy (1983). During a fight scene in the film, the act went wrong and Wayborn suffered several broken toes. Despite the accident, she became well known for her fight scenes in the movie, in an era predating the big female action heroines of the box office.
ELLIE WOOD WALKER
She played roles on such classics as Targets (1968) and Easy Rider (1969), as well as the often-raved The New Interns (1964), but Ellie has a unique claim to fame. At the height of the popularity of Batman (1966-68 TV series), producer William Dozier wanted to adapt Wonder Woman to television. Although the TV pilot is only four minutes long, this is the first time Wonder Woman ever made it on film, making Ellie Wood Walker the first woman to ever play Diana Prince, a.k.a. Wonder Woman!
FIRST CONVENTION APPEARANCE EVER!
Tara Buckman made her very first autographing at our Williamsburg show last year so it seems fitting we bring her to Maryland for her second show. She is an absolute sweetheart and a joy to chat with. Her credits are extensive from The Cannonball Run (1981), Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984) and Night Killer (1990). She also played roles on Kojak, Baretta, Chips, Highway to Heaven and Buck Rogers in the 25th Century.
In the early 1970s, George came to be associated with rather provocative, sometimes (as in Straw Dogs) controversial roles such as Straw Dogs (1971) with Dustin Hoffman, Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry (1974) with Peter Fonda, and Mandingo (1975) with Ken Norton. She worked with Boris Karloff in The Sorcerers (1967), Michael Caine Billion Dollar Brain (1967) and many other actors including Roger Moore and Tony Curtis.
On television, Geri Reischl appeared on Gunsmoke, The Interns, Apple's Way and The Bold Ones. Geri is best known for portraying Jan Brady in nine episodes of The Brady Bunch Hour during the 1976–77 television season. Her appearances as Jan have been referred to as 'Fake Jan'. She has embraced this fan-created moniker as a badge of honor and her personal brand. We all love Geri and are pleased to know she will be returning to the convention in September to meet and greet her fans.

He is the Official Resident Cosplayer for MANC and will be bringing classic characters to life throughout the convention.
