CON KASTERBOROUS 2018 GUESTS

 

                                                  Mark Sheppard

Canton-and-TARDIS

 

Mark Sheppard, a fan favorite across popular science fiction and fantasy TV series: Doctor Who, Supernatural, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Warehouse 13, Star Trek: Voyager, The X-Files, Sliders, Chuck, Dollhouse, Charmed, Medium, The Bionic Woman and more.

Best known to Doctor Who fans for his 2011 role as “Canton Delaware III,” a taciturn FBI agent who helps the Doctor repel an alien menace during the historic Apollo 11 moon launch, Sheppard will join Catrin Stewart, who plays Doctor Who’s mystery-solving Victorian heroine “Jenny Flint,” and classic Who composer Dominic Glynn, among other guests.
“It’s a thrill to welcome Mark to Con Kasterborous,” said show organizer Bonnie Auten, who founded the con in 2012. “Fans have been delighting in Mark’s charismatic performances and weird, wonderful characters for decades, from his menacing pyrokinetic killer in an early X-Files to conniving ‘Badger’ in Firefly, from Supernatural’s unforgettable ‘Crowley’ to Doctor Who’s heroic ‘Canton Delaware.’ It’s fair to say that any show is improved the moment Mark enters a scene —
The son of veteran British thespian Morgan Sheppard — who joined him on Doctor Who as an older “Canton Delaware,” reunited with the Doctor long after their encounter in 1969 — Sheppard got his acting start in the 1992-93 series Silk Stalkings and in the Oscar-nominated 1993 film In the Name of the Father. His other movie appearances include Lady in the Box, Evil Eyes, Unstoppable and Mysterious Island — which he also directed — and he held recurring roles on other series including White Collar, Leverage, 24 and Soldier of Fortune, Inc. He starred in an early 1990s production of Billy Hayes’ Cock and Bull Story, for which he received the 1992 L.A. Drama Critics’ Circle Award. He also voiced the protagonist of the 2009 videogame The Conduit, in which he was reunited with his father Morgan Sheppard, who played his mentor.
Before taking up acting, Sheppard was a trained musician who performed and toured with, among others, Robyn Hitchcock and the Television Personalities. As a session artist, he backed records cut by numerous bands across Europe. Since 2011, he’s been “The Voice” for BBC America, the cablenet that imports Doctor Who and other British entertainment stateside.
