DARREN KENT

Essex born Darren Kent burst onto our screens back in 2007 when he appeared opposite Kiefer Sutherland in hit horror movie Mirrors. Recognising Darren’s talents, casting directors quickly cast him in Snow White and the Huntsman and the smash hit TV series Game of Thrones, Houdini and Doyle and The Frankenstein Chronicles!

But you’ll all know him now as 'The Scholar' in the new grind house, blood fest TV series Blood Drive!

CHRIS McCORKINDALE (NIGHTBREED)

Known to most of you for her role as Shuna Sassi in Nightbreed, and perhaps for her (uncredited) role as the movement model for Jessica Rabbit’s nightclub scene in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Chris McCorkindale has been a dancer, model, yoga teacher, slam poet, technology analyst, and environmentalist.

As a professional dancer and yoga teacher, she’s had the opportunity to work in South America, Japan, Italy, Spain, Greece, and the UK. During her time as a dancer in London, she worked on numerous videos, trade shows, and an occasional television show. In addition to daily dance classes, she studied physical theater with David Glass and Peta Lily from 1988 to 1990. She is grateful to David Glass for bringing her in to audition for the role of Shuna Sassi.

After working on Nightbreed, Chris left the dance world and returned to school to study literature, social science, and computer technology, the field she has worked in for the last 20 years. She hopes to eventually return to teaching yoga, and to help others heal themselves through living and eating more consciously.

SID HAIG

Tall, bald and nearly always bearded, Sid Haig has provided hulking menace to many studio films as well as hundreds of independent film. Sid Haig was born Sidney Eddie Mosesian in Fresno, California on a hot summer day July 14th: a screaming ball of hair.

Sid's first acting job was in Jack Hill's student film at UCLA. It was called "The Host", which was released in 2004 on DVD, as a companion to "Switchblade Sisters", another Hill film.

That role launched a 50+ year acting career during which Haig has appeared in over 70 films and 350 television shows. He starred in a number of Roger Corman films over the years. He also became a staple for legendary director Jack Hill, appearing in "Spider Baby", "Coffy", and "Foxy Brown". Haig's other memorable credits include George Lucas' "THX-1138",and the 1970 James Bond opus "Diamonds are Forever" (he's one of the Slumber Brothers, and got to toss a topless Lana Wood from the window of a high-rise Vegas hotel). Among his most significant television credits are appearances on such landmark programs as The A-Team, TJ Hooker, Dukes of Hazzard, Quincy ME, Hart to Hart, Fantasy Island, Charlie's Angels, Police Woman, The Rockford Files, Six Million Dollar Man, Mannix, Mission: Impossible, Gunsmoke, Get Smart, Here's Lucy, The Flying Nun, Daniel Boone, Star Trek, Batman and The Untouchables.

Sid has never been one to give-up on anything but after forty years of carrying a gun (except for the occasional Jack Hill or Roger Corman Film),his dreams of being recognized as a more than competent actor were fading. Then in 1992 Sid backed away and said, "I'll never play another stupid "heavy" again, and I don't care if that means that I never work, ever." This just proves that if you take a stand people will listen, because in 1997 Quentin Tarantino wrote the part of the judge in "Jackie Brown" for Sid. Then things got better, much better. Not necessarily more work, just better work. In 2000, Sid starred in Rob Zombie's debut film "House of 1000 Corpses". He starred as the fun-loving but deadly Captain Spaulding. This role brought a whole new round of fans to Sid's acting career and earned him an award for Best Supporting Actor in the 13th Annual Fangoria Chainsaw Awards, as well as an induction into the Horror Hall of Fame. Captain Spaulding has since become the icon for the new horror genre. Sid has enjoyed success as Captain Spaulding once again in the follow-up to "House of 1000 Corpses", entitled, "The Devil's Rejects". For this film, Sid received the award for best Actor in the 15th Annual Fangoria Chainsaw Awards, as well as sharing the award for "Most Vile Villain" at the First Annual Spike TV Scream Awards with Leslie Easterbrook, Sheri Moon and Bill Moseley as The Firefly Family.

DANIELLE HARRIS (Halloween/Hatchet)

Danielle Harris is one of just a few actresses who have maintained popularity and value in the film and television industry, since starting out as a child star at the age of seven. She is considered the most recognizable female star in the horror genre.

Her journey into acting began in New York, when she was cast, at the age of seven, on the ABC daytime drama ONE LIFE TO LIVE. With her growing popularity and her passion for acting, she moved with her supportive family to Los Angeles, to further pursue her acting career. On the very day she arrived in Los Angeles, Danielle was cast in the classic summer sleeper DON'T TELL MOM THE BABYSITTER'S DEAD, starring opposite Christina Applegate. Shortly after filming wrapped, Danielle landed a series-regular role on ABC's comedy hit ROSEANNE. Danielle and her family realized their move to Los Angeles was permanent! Danielle continued booking back-to-back jobs, including being directed by some of Hollywood's most iconic film directors such as Tony Scott, who hired her, starring opposite Bruce Willis in Shane Black's notorious THE LAST BOYSCOUT. Soon after, Rob Cohen (THE FAST AND FURIOUS) cast Danielle in his epic mega-budget film DAYLIGHT, for Universal Studios, starring opposite Sylvester Stallone, shooting on location in Rome, Italy.

Danielle went on to star as fan favorite JAMIE LLOYD in John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN IV, sealing her fame in the horror genre. Ms. Harris returned to the franchise starring as ANNIE BRACKET, in the Rob Zombie directed HALLOWEEN I and II, for The Weinstein's Dimension Films.

With her success and enormous global fan base, Danielle found herself "back in blood" in the award- winning vampire drama, STAKELAND, which premiered at the prestigious Toronto Film Festival in 2010, where she took home the Audience Choice Award. Danielle soon after was cast to star in the much-anticipated sequels to Adam Green's cult classic HATCHET franchise, further fortifying her demand in the genre. Danielle continued her role as "Scream Queen" in the lead role of AMY in SEE NO EVIL 2, for WWE Studio/Lionsgate.

Danielle has always been passionate about the workings of behind the scenes, in film-making. She wrote and directed WILLIE'S STORY (short), which was produced by MPI (STAKE LAND) and Glass Eye Pix. This project showcases her strengths in directing, adding to her varied artistic talents. As she is with her acting, Danielle is a natural as a film director.

Danielle made her full-length feature film directorial debut in 2012 with AMONG FRIENDS, a hip 1980's throwback Horror Comedy, about a dinner party gone terribly wrong. "This dinner party is gonna be KILLER…" AMONG FRIENDS was shot in 10 days on a micro budget and quickly became a fan favorite, at genre film festivals across the globe. AMONG FRIENDS received US distribution by Grindstone/Lionsgate and Anchor Bay Canada. As well as the US and Canada, AMONG FRIENDS was released in Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxemburg, going on to being distributed in Australia and New Zealand.

Danielle looks forward to being back in the director/producer's chair with her feature film DEAD WEEK (working title), which has been optioned by writer Jenny Wingfield (MAN IN THE MOON.) DEAD WEEK is currently being shopped to studios and Danielle hopes to start production soon, in Louisiana and Georgia.

TYLER MANE

Tyler Mane constantly breaks boundaries and defies expectations. Certainly he’s got an undeniable physical prowess, but the actor imbues a tangible humanity into every role he plays, whether he’s donning the mask of Michael Myers in Halloween and H2 or the crown of King Ajax in Troy. He can be the villain or the hero, and that versatility is what makes each one of his performances memorable.It’s been quite the road from Saskatoon, Sasketchawan to Hollywood for Tyler. In 1986, he officially began his professional wrestling career.

Studying with the legendary Hart family, Tyler developed a formidable presence that would see him dominate rings in the NWA, NCW and around the world for years.

Tyler formally hung up the wrestling boots in 1999, and he fully immersed himself in acting, realizing his dream. As Sabretooth in 2000’s big screen adaptation of X-Men, he finally ripped right through pop culture in a big way. “When we were filming, I knew we were doing something big; I just didn’t know how big it was going to be. It was another nice bridge to where I am today. It felt pretty badass.”

Things got even more badass when Tyler sunk his teeth into classic Greek Mythology alongside Brad Pitt and Eric Bana in the 2004 hit Troy. Tyler goes on, “King Ajax is one of those phenomenal characters in history that you hope you get a chance to play, and I was lucky enough to do.”

Soon after Troy, Tyler formed a bond with Rob Zombie with his turn as Rufus in The Devil’s Rejects. That relationship inspired Rob to pen his take on Halloween with Tyler in mind for Michael Myers. Together, they created a darker, deadlier and deeper character.

Tyler adds, “I like the fact that Michael Myers is a tormented, tortured human being. The way he expresses himself is through violence. In H2, he’s out amongst society, and he’s still wearing his mask with the big beard that I had. He’s always hidden himself and withdrawn from society. In my mind, Michael was trying to reunite with the only family that he know–Laurie Strode (Scout Taylor-Compton). I wasn’t approaching it as I’m trying to kill her. His only connection to humanity, so to speak, was Laurie.”

The character became much more intricate in Tyler’s deft hands, but he still conjured a viable darkness on screen. “Every kill was someone who tried to get in Michael’s way and stop him from reuniting with his family. There might have been one or two thrown in for laughs though,” laughs Tyler.

He’s a powerful presence and he takes over the scenes he’s in, but there’s a genuine emotional element to everything he does. That’s what makes Tyler’s Michael Myers so real.

MICHAEL ALCOTT (The Chicken Fucker)

Michael ‘Red Bone’ Alcott shot to fame in The Devils Rejects as ‘The Chicken Fucker’ – a hilarious scene it a classic movie.

Since then, Michael has also portrayed Fat Randy in Rob Zombie’s ‘31’ and has recently starred alongside Adam Sandler in ‘The Do-Over’.

We’ve got the Chicken Fucker coming to London Horror Con where he’ll not only be signing and posing for photos but he’ll be doing live stand up comedy during the weekends activities.

TONY MORAN (MICHAEL MYERS - UNMASKED)

Tony Moran (born August 14, 1957) is an American actor and producer. Although people may recognize his sister as Erin Moran (of Happy Days) we horror fans remember him for playing Michael Myers in the 1978 horror classic “Halloween”!
After filming the horror classic, Tony made several guest appearances in television series “The Waltons” and “CHiPs“.

Although Tony quit acting at age thirty to work as mortgage broker, he did appear at Halloween conventions. In 2008, Tony returned to acting with the short film “The Lucky Break”. In 2010, he starred and produced horror film “Beg”, which also stars his Halloween co-star P.J. Soles, and “Provoked” (2013)“Dead Bounty” (2015) and “Redemption A.D.” (2015).

Please share and tweet this post as much as possible – let’s make sure all of our horror guests get an amazing UK welcome!

ROBERT MUKES (House of 1000 Corpses/Westworld)

Hailing from Indianapolis, Indiana, Mukes always had the goal of acting professionally in mind. A sports scholarship for basketball was his ticket out to the west coast. After playing professional basketball for 30 years, Mukes trained for the WWF, then began his acting career.

Mukes took the drive and determination he acquired from professionally playing basketball and applied those qualities to acting. Additionally, the wrestling training he received and the high level of health and physical fitness that he maintains, has allowed him to succeed as a stunt performer.  Robert has spent an extensive amount of time receiving professional training in the field of acting.

Standing at 6'10", Mukes uniquely stands out from his fellow actors. His light, charismatic presence lends to the humorous side of his characters, while the slight darkness that lingers in his physicality lends to the darker more serious side of his characters. This mixture creates a unique and fresh blend that has never been seen before in Hollywood.

His most current projects include HBO's TV series Westworld; the movies Coffin 2, Valentine DayZ, and Bone Tomahawk; and Showtime's award winning series Weeds, in which he played the memorable Alaskan bounty hunter, Abumchuk. He is most known for his role as Rufus Jr in Rob Zombie's 2003 House of 1000 Corpses and travels nation-wide to horror conventions, comic cons, and haunted houses to sign autographs for this cult classic.

COLIN CUNNINGHAM
BLOOD DRIVE – FALLING SKIES – X-FILES

Starring as the mischievous ring master JULIAN SLINK in SYFY's "BLOOD DRIVE" - Colin Cunningham is bound to be a firm fan favourite! Not only Blood Drive, but also many more TV series.

For 5 Seasons, Cunningham starred alongside Noah Wyle and Moon Bloodgood in the Steven Spielberg / DreamWorks produced series "Falling Skies," for TNT. Cunningham was a bit of a scene stealer, as "John Pope," the rogue survivor of the alien attack that has hit the world.

In addition to "Falling Skies," Cunningham recurred on the CBS series "Flashpoint." The TNT pilot "Perception" alongside Rachael Leigh Cook and Eric McCormack and, Cunningham has been a series lead on the shows "The Collector" and the critically acclaimed series "Da Vinci's Inquest". He co starred in the comedy "Living in Your Car" for HBO Canada. On film, starred alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Sixth Day as Tripp, and put his life on the line for Jennifer Garner in Elektra.

In 2009, Cunningham made a name for himself as a director, when he [along with actor/producer Madison Graie] made the short list for an Academy Award nomination, for their film Centigrade. The film [in which Cunningham also starred] took over two dozen "Best Of" awards and nominations, and in addition to being considered for the Oscar, it became the first short film in iTunes history to break the Top Ten in Feature Downloads, finding itself right alongside such Hollywood blockbusters as Iron Man and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The film hit numerous Top Ten Lists, including the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, the Palm Springs International Film Festival, the Vancouver International Film Festival, the Jackson Hole International Film Festival, the Montreal World Film Festival, Short Film Corner [Cannes], Best of Shorts Film Festival [France], and Canadian Film Center [CFC]. Centigrade enjoys the notoriety as one of the most successful short films ever made and is currently being developed into a project for television.

Although relatively a new name to hit the industry in the United States, Cunningham has dominated the Canadian scene for years, being nominated for twelve Leo Awards [including three wins, in 2008 for Best Director for a Short Drama and Best Performance by a Male in a Short Drama for Centigrade, and in 2004 for Dramatic Series: Best Guest Performance by a Male for "Da Vinci's Inquest."] He has also directed several award winning music videos, and was nominated for Best Emerging Director at the 2008 Vancouver International Film Festival.
