But it doesn’t always work out. Christopher Lloyd (Taxi) had to cancel, along with Julie Benz due to new Pilot commitments.
Lloyd said: “Sorry to have to postpone my trip to Australia. Was packed and waiting for the car when I was informed I was just booked today to film a pilot for NBC to start filming on April 1. I was very much looking forward to meeting everyone who attended the Supanova events in both Brisbane and Melbourne. I look forward to coming to Australia soon!”
Gil Gerrard, Jane Badler and Eric Roberts were also cancellations.
Meanwhile a separate Star Trek convention takes place in Sydney tomorrow and in Melbourne on Sunday.
It has William Shatner, JG Hertzler, Robert O’Reilly, Suzie Plakson and Scott Bakula.
