UPDATE: Rainbow will be arriving late on Friday due to filming, and will be at the convention Saturday and Sunday. Check with Creation for updates to his stage appearance and photo op availability.
Lt. Ford is making a return! At least in convention form.
Stargate Atlantis actor Rainbow Sun Francks — who portrayed the boyish and charming Lt. Aiden Ford — will make an appearance at Creation Entertainment’s Gateway: A 25th Anniversary Salute To Stargate fan convention. The event takes place later this month in Chicago, Illinois.
“Gateway” is Creation Entertainment’s first Chicago-based Stargate convention since 2016.
Francks joins actors Michael Shanks, Amanda Tapping, Joe Flanigan, Torri Higginson, Paul McGillion, Tony Amendola, and more in a star-studded, dynamite weekend at the Westin O’Hare Hotel.
Francks will appear on-stage during the weekend. He’ll also be available for paid photo ops, and will host a table in the vendor’s room to meet with fans and sign autographs.
Photo ops with Francks go for $40 (USD). You can purchase tickets for the three-day convention at CreationEnt.com
Also noted in a recent Gateway convention update is a change of appearance date for Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Origins actor Connor Trinneer (Michael, Professor Langford). Due to a change in his filming schedule, Trinneer will appear Saturday instead of Friday for his on-stage appearance, autographs, photo ops, and VIP meet & greet.
