Didn’t Make it to Roswell? Watch the Lectures!
Danger, Will Robinson!!! You never know just who may drop into Roswell every July during the UFO Festival time. At right, actor Billy Mumy, who played Will Robinson in the influential 1960s TV series “Lost in Space,” visits with author Noe Torres. For Noe, who grew up watching every episode of the show and wanting to be just like Will, meeting Billy was a wonderful moment to be cherished forever. A chance to brush shoulders with celebrities is only one of many reasons to come to the Roswell UFO Festival every summer!
Billy Mumy gave a wonderful talk about what it was like to work with noted actors such as Guy Williams, June Lockhart, Johnathan Harris, etc. He also talked about meeting Walt Disney and many other interesting facets of his life as a Hollywood child actor.
Yes, that’s Tasha Yar from “Star Trek: Next Generation” – actress Denise Crosby! Notice especially the “With Love” :). Denise appeared at the Roswell UFO Museum during the UFO Festival. She is the beloved former cast member of STNG who left after the first season, much to the horror and disappointment of most STNG fans (including me). But that’s okay. We will always fondly remember her contributions to the series.
