‘The Walking Dead’ Fans Meets Show’s Stars; Pictures And Tweets Flood In
Every television series manages a dedicated fan base and emerges out as an extended part of their fandom. AMC network’s celebrated zombie television series “The Walking Dead” can also be credited for their millions of fans, who get a new boost as season 6 lands on the screen. However, the news is not about the plot details of the running season, rather the connection between the fans and cast. Read the scoop to know in details.
“The Walking Dead” fans received a moment of a lifetime as they met their favorite cast members this Halloween. The fan convention reached its height with cosplay at Walker Stalker Con Atlanta. Though the convention had also taken place last year, this year’s convention fell on a Halloween weekend, resulting in even more costumes to enjoy for the fans.
Well, we are talking about the crazy connection between the fans and the show’s cast, as there is another side of the coin. Recently, another fan had something negative to say about the show. Jack Black of “Gulliver’s Travels” and “Goosebumps” fame, who follows the show regularly, together with his wife Tanya Haden, had something to add-on about the program. Recently, the voice of Po in “Kung Fu Panda’s” said that the original plot was really good, but now the program has lost newness and is running just for the sake of making money as a soap opera.
The first Walker Stalker Con started back in November 2013, with a Kickstarter campaign. More than 150 people managed to raise a sum of more than $16,000 and the first convention was held.
This Walker Stalker Con does not limit its fun to just “The Walking Dead”. Comic characters, scary clowns, movie favorites, superheroes, and more were represented. Casts from “The Vampire Diaries”, “Breaking Bad”, and “American Horror Story” made appearances at the three-day event.
The star-studded con witnessed big names like Andrew Lincoln, Chandler Riggs, and Melissa Ponzio, among more than 75 actors and actresses in attendance.
General admission costs $90 for two days and $120 for three days, but these prices did not include photos with the stars. Fans paid between $30 to $780 for an individual photo pose with stars from the shows.
