Perennial film villain Vernon Wells visits ShockaCon this September to connect with his West Virginia fans.
Probably first and best known as “Wez” from Mad Max 2, The Road Warrior (1981) where he portrayed a humorously deranged apocalyptic death dealer, Wells has made a lifetime career out of playing the bad guy.

One thing Wells enjoys when he is not on set is meeting Mad Max/Road Warrior fans of all ages. “It is quite the phenom, our Mad Max!” Wells exclaims. “Many years ago the only fans I had were people of my own age who had seen the movie when they were young adults. But then they started showing the movie to their kids and suddenly I had a whole new generation of fans! I love it when a 12 year old kid comes up with his dad and tells me all about the film while his father proudly explains that they watch it together regularly. And, believe it or not, a huge amount of my fans now are female. They tend to find the character sexy, which I don’t understand—maybe it has to do more with the costume than me.” Continue reading
