Fanderson is excited to reveal the first confirmed guests for The Future is Fantastic!, the club’s first full weekend convention in five years. No less than eight people from across the Spectrum of Gerry Anderson series have so far kindly agreed to give up their free time to be with us and meet fans, and there will be more to follow! The current list includes:
Shane and Sheila Rimmer
Thunderbirds Are Go! might be just around the corner, but fans know that there is only one Scott Tracy! Forever to be known as the voice of Thunderbird 1 pilot, Shane has also had a long-running and successful career as a writer.
Shane will be accompanied by his wife Sheila, and has been a mainstay at conventions for many years.
Mr Alan Tracy returns once more to entertain us with his vibrant humour and general enthusiasm for life! A successful stage actor, Matt is a real fans’ favourite at conventions. Watch out for his insights into the lives of the Tracy Brothers…
Known by fans for his model work on Terrahawks, alongside his colleague John Lee, Steve provided a fascinating slideshow of his work at Fanderson’s 30th Birthday event for Terrahawks back in 2013.
As a puppeteer on Terrahawks, Judy was tasked with bringing life and character to Gerry Anderson’s new style of ‘Supermacromation’ puppetry.
Since cutting his teeth as an art director on Terrahawks, Gary Tomkins has gone on to have a successful work in the film industry, including work on the Harry Potter and Star Wars series.
Working alongside Derek Meddings, Alan was a modelmaker during the heydays of Century 21 at Slough and has since published a fascinating book on the subject.
An established actor in films and children’s TV, Richard played the likeable Officer Hubble Orrin in Space Precinct.
The Future is Fantastic will take place over the weekend of 2nd to the 4th October 2015 at the Holiday Inn Maidenhead.
We hope to confirm more guests soon – keep watching this space!
In the meantime, you can…
