your largest fansite dedicated to actress Mary McDonnell
For the first time, Mary will be part of the AlienCon experience, at the Pasadena Convention Center and she will be hosting a live episode of Lady BAM Podcast. *awesome*
If you think you can go she will be appearing June 16 and 17. Go to their website and book your tickets.
Every year the Pell Award Gala honors someone by celebrating artistic excellence and honoring the legacy of Senator Claiborne Pell. This year Lifetime Achievement in the Arts went to Mary and it couldn’t have gone to a more fitting candidate for the spirit of art she embodies, the mole of her extraordinary work and that little big of humanity she has that make her extremely special.
With the permission of Trinity Rep I have added to the gallery HQ photos from the event.
Take a look!
Hello everyone, I’m back! WHAT AN EXPERIENCE.
This was really the first time I attended a convention and met Mary. I have no words to describe everything, it was huge and wonderful and I had so much fun I wish I was back there. LOL
Following are pictures I myself took and my friend Silvia too and gave for the site, apologies for the quality but the lights were a little bit odd in the room, like they were highlighted like in Paradise and if you asked a question the light was on you, literally in your eyes.
If you were at FedCon and wish to donate photos you can send via mail, host somewhere and send me a download link and tell me where to credit, I’ll be happy to share them.
NOTE: I know I promised videos of the panels but while there I have been asked not to put videos online at the site, I don’t know if they meant in general online but I’ll stick to their request and not share. I’m sorry but I follow the rules. (The little Sharon Raydor in me!)
The adorable Lauren kindly donated the video she periscoped during the Battlestar Galactica panel at Heroes & Villains Fan Fest yesterday.
Check it down here and find it in our video gallery any time.
Take a look at some photos shared from event accounts and fans attending the convention from the Heroes & Villains Fan Fest which took place during the week-end and ends today.
I went through a massive update of events Mary attended during the years.
** are the events that have been added new to the gallery.
Take a look below and enjoy!
They say she turns 66 today, but she wasn’t totally wrong in her instagram message, it looks like 36!!!
Happy Birthday, Mary!
May you always keep smiling and enjoy the beautiful things of life. May it always bring you love and admiration. It is the deepest honor to be a fan and supporter of the wonderful person you are. The whole world shines more with the sparkling light you bring to it. Thank you!
