The leaves are about to change and the kids are back in school, which can mean only one thing: it’s time once again for the Rock and Shock convention to hit the Boston area. This year marks the tenth anniversary of the heralded horror convention, and to celebrate, this year’s convention will feature an absolutely stacked lineup of guests and performers, including The Walking Dead’s Scott Wilson.
He has protected his friends from The Walking Dead, murdered In Cold Blood and fallen victim to Charlize Theron's Monster - but this October, actor Scott Wilson will be safe, sound and signing autographs at the 10th annual Rock & Shock convention in Worcester, which runs from October 18 through October 20.
Wilson began his career with back-to-back roles in the 1967 classics In the Heat of the Night, opposite screen legends Sidney Poitier and Rod Steiger, and in the film adaptation of Truman Capote's famed docu-novel In Cold Blood. Since then, Wilson's incredible acting talents have earned him countless film and television roles as well as a Golden Globe nomination for his role in 1980's The Ninth Configuration.
Since 2011, Wilson has been winning the hearts of TV audiences as Hershel Greene on the acclaimed AMC series The Walking Dead. Greene is a farmer, veterinarian, father and recovering alcoholic who must fight to protect his fellow survivors after a zombie apocalypse while simultaneously serving as the group's moral compass. Wilson will also be joined at Rock & Shock by his The Walking Dead co-stars Michael Rooker (Merle Dixon), Lew Temple (Axel) and IronE Singleton (T-Dog).
In addition to your favorite The Walking Dead stars, this year’s convention will also feature guests Robert Englund (Nightmare on Elm Street, Hatchet), Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day, The X-Files), Gunnar Hansen (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and Katharine Isabelle (Ginger Snaps, American Mary), with performances from Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes (Jay and Silent Bob's Super Groovy Cartoon Movie and Podcast Q&A), Danzig with special guest Doyle and Twiztid.
