|Dingbat Reunites with Dr.
February 21, 2012
Dingbat used on Shock Theatre (1968-1975) and created by Dan East had a
homecoming this past weekend. It's been 40 years since the original
Dingbat and Dr. Shock have been together, but on Saturday, February
18th a little bit of history was made at Con nooga 2012.
Shock Theatre was scheduled
to present Night of the Living Dead for the Con nooga fans attending
the event. It was a great crowd filling the theatre to capacity as Doc
and Nurse G. addressed the masses of the macabre, explaining what they
were about to see with the first episode of the New Shock Theatre.
Dr. Shock had arranged a surprise for the Con nooga faithful. A reunion
with Dr. Shock, Nurse Goodbody and Dingbat was about to take place.
After 40 years the original Dingbat, created by Dan East, was reunited
the Shock Theatre cast for a live event. The Shock fans were
surprised to say the least to witness such an historical reunion.
Dingbat has been kept by Dan East's nephew John Esslinger from
Nashville. There is also talk about including the original
Dingbat in on an up coming episode. We'll let you know as details
Walking Dead Zombie Sonya
Thompson to Appear at Con nooga 2012
January 28, 2012
upbeat, sincere, sweet, kind, cute, beautiful, sexy.... these are words
not often used to describe a zombie. Unless of course you’re talking
about the most photographed zombie worldwide from the popular AMC
series “The Walking Dead”. Then you would be talking about Sonya
Thompson one of the rising stars from the Walking Dead Series.
It was recently at the "Blood
Ward" premiere that I had the pleasure of meeting Sonya. A
setting that couldn't be scripted any better for a rising film actress
not only in the genre of horror but also other more dramatic roles. It
was here under the splatter of Blood Ward special effects that I caught
up with Sonya and convinced her to do an interview for the Shock
Born in Northeast Georgia Sonya loves to make people smile and has
since she was a young girl. Her acting carreer took her through some
early training as she later studied with such notable mentors as Kate
Rasnick, Candace Mabry, Jennifer Malone, Shreepal Zala and Ted
Brunetti. All specializing in different skill sets ranging from
voice-overs to many acting classes and workshops.
She has worked on several projects ranging from film to music videos to
TV shows to commercials. She starred in an infomercial with comedian
Dominick Racano. She was a detective in the movie 'Ebony Knight' and a
FBI agent in the webisode series 'Money, Power and Respect' She also
had a small role in the movie 'More Than Diamonds' and the short film
But most notably and most likely of the most interest to you our Shock
Theatre minions, Sonya is a huge focal point in the AMC series the
Walking Dead. Not only does Sonya appear in the series but her zombie
image has been used worldwide for the Waling Dead marketing campaign.
In other words she’s hot stuff right now in the business and we’re
going to find out what Sonya has been up to.
Continue to look for her smiling face in more upcoming projects. Sonya
will be at Con nooga February 17-18-19, so keep your eyes on the
schedule and attend one of her events. Sonya reminds us that, the world
is her canvas and she is ready to paint!
