Mr. Homn is coming to LCTC in 2013!

And then a voice said, "Natasha, not everyone is going to know who that is." Okay... Lurch is coming to Lexington Comic and Toy Convention in 2013! That's right, Carel Struyken, who played Lurch in The Addams Family and Addams Family Values, is the latest Media Guest added to the line-up for the sophomore LCTC. Struyken also appeared on Star Trek: The Next Generation as Mr. Homn, the manservant of Betazoid Ambassador Lwaxana Troi, the mother of Counselor Deanna Troi.

Struyken portrayed Homn on five episodes of TNG and gave a commanding performance, though the character was more or less mute, save for one line in the episode "Haven" in which he said, "Thanks for the drinks." Homn seemed to have a high tolerance for alcohol. Lwaxana also accused him of having "outrageously lustful thoughts." Of course, Lwaxana also made accusations that would make most blush, so who knows if she was truly able to read Homn's thoughts. Regardless, Struyken was one of my favorite TNG and it's so great that he's going to be a guest at LCTC!

It's kind of funny, Struyken played Lurch in the film adapatations of the classic series The Addams Family, and he joins Felix Silla who was Cousin Itt in the original series! Silla also played an Ewok in Return of the Jedi, of which Struyken also has a connection; he played Terak, the antagonist of Ewoks: The Battle for Endor. (One of my favorites, btw!) 

This is super exciting! Carel Struyken has been a part of some fantastic aspects of popular culture and it's great to have him joining Peter Mayhew, Billy Dee Williams, Margot Kidder, and the other fantastic guests that will be appearing at Lexington Comic and Toy Convention on Saturday, March 16, 2013 and Sunday, March 17, 2013.
