Shelley Duvall, Defiance actors coming to Dallas Comic Con Fan Days

Shelley Duvall, the star of such films as The Shining and Popeye (as the perfect Olive Oyl, by the way), will make her first-ever convention appearance at Dallas Comic Con Fan Days October 4-6 at the Irving Convention Center. She joins other recent adds Grant Bowler and Stephanie Leonidas of the SyFy Channel hit series Defiance. 

Fan Days boasts an excellent variety of guests this year, including Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Sons of Anarchy), Robert Patrick (T2), Steven Yeun (Walking Dead), Anthony Daniels (Star Wars' C3PO), Michael Rosenbaum (Smallville's Lex Luthor), Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), and John Barrowman (Torchwood). Comic legends Neal Adams, Herb Trimpe, Michael Golden, and Bernie Wrightson are attending as well.
