The winter edition of Emerald City Comic Con is certainly heating up! In about three weeks, Tim Curry will grace the green stage with stories and fond memories of his work in films like The Rocky Horror Picture Show, IT and many more.
Despite a stroke which left him partially paralyzed and affected his ability to speak, he’s still able to perform and focuses more on voice-acting than being in front of the camera. This talent has been in the forefront of many fond animated works in the past and continues to do more work in the present. He was Mr. Curry in Paddington Bear, offered the occasional pain to Peter Pan and the Pirates as Captain James T. Hook and voiced Konk in Pirates of the Dark Water. He often continued to be a ‘mad doctor’ of sorts in many a cartoon, like Doctor Moroco in Transformers: Rescue Bots.
But its the live action works he’s best and fondly remembered for.
Those able to make it to Seattle’s seminal fandom exposition will be in for a thrill. Though not many remember his time in the recording studio making music, it’ll always be his forays into this scene that defined this man as a true entertainer.
