 Jimmy Hunt - Photo
Hunt, Jimmy
Jimmy Hunt was born on December 4, 1939 in Los Angeles, California. He was seven years old when he was selected by an
MGM talent scout to play Van Johnson as a child in High Barbaree (1947). From that point onward, the freckle-faced Hunt
remained in great demand as a general-purpose juvenile. He went on to play Evelyn Keyes' foster child (and plot motivator)
in The Mating of Millie (1947), the "mean widdle kid" Junior in Red Skelton's Fuller Brush Man (1948), and Ronald Reagan's
son in Louisa (1950). At 20th Century-Fox, he appeared as William Gilbreth, one of the twelve offspring of efficiency expert
Frank Gilbreth (Clifton Webb) in Cheaper by the Dozen (1950); two years later, he played another member of the Gilberth
clan in the Dozen sequel Belles on the Toes (1952). It wasn't until his 38th film that he played his most famous role as wideeyed
David Maclean in the sci-fi thriller Invaders from Mars (1953). At fourteen, Hunt decided that he didn't want to pursue
an acting career any more. After college, he worked in military intelligence in Germany; more recently, he was an industrial
tool and dye salesman in the San Fernando Valley. At the request of director Tobe Hooper, Jimmy Hunt made one last,
nostalgic fling at acting, playing the role of the police chief in the 1986 remake of Invaders from Mars.

Greg Lightner - Photo 
Lightner, Greg
Greg Lightner was born in Germany as a military brat. He came to the United States at the age of two and has lived in many states, as his father was relocated with the U.S. Air Force. His love of makeup stems
from his early encounters with horror magazines that his stepfather would collect, and the amazement that artist could make someone who was alive and human, into something that looked dead, demonic or
otherworldly. This fascination, along with his tumultuous youth filled with instability and often abuse, caused Greg to create imaginary worlds and creatures, which came into fruition with the help of his
sister’s beauty makeup kit. Greg began his professional makeup career doing theatrical makeup and prosthetics, leading to become the supervisor of the makeup department at a Pennsylvania amusement’s
park’s annual haunted attraction.

He appeared on syfy's FaceOff and has worked on Jug Face (2013), Corpsing (2013) and Hansel & Gretel.

NOTE: 02/22/2017
Adrian Paul will still be at the Convention on Saturday, signing.  Only "The Sword Experience is cancelled.


I writing to inform you that we are probably closing the Sword experience event by the end of the week at the Tulare Con due to very little interest. This is the first time this has happened event after 20 events even there were social media posts and paid adverting pushes. Currently, there are 4 people signed up and that is not enough to hold an event that would be worth the time and effort. We will return their money once we close the event.
