Tim Curry is without question one of the most beloved actors in the history of cinema. Characters like Frank-n-Furter, Pennywise, and the Lord of Darkness are just a few of Curry’s most iconic, and they showcase the unparalleled range of his acting abilities. He is, was, and forever will be a one-of-a-kind performer, and if you’ve ever wanted to meet him, now is your time.
Despite recent health issues that have mostly brought an end to his acting career, Tim Curry will be making a rare appearance at the upcoming Chiller Theatre convention in Parsippany, New Jersey, which takes place on the weekend of October 28th. As announced by the official Chiller Theatre Facebook page this week, Curry will take photos with fans on Friday night and Saturday only, and pre-signed autographs can also be purchased.
