In the coming weeks, CFM will be profiling some of the Celebrities and events that will be going on during the con.
AMC’s “The Walking Dead” premiered on October 31st, 2010 and was an immediate hit. Fans are “rabid” for the show and viewership continues to rise. One of the stars of the show, Jon Bernthal, will be a guest at the 2012 Scarefest.
Jon Bernthal was raised in Washington D.C. He went to study at The Moscow Art Theatre School, in Moscow, Russia, where he also played professional baseball in the European professional baseball federation. While in Moscow, he was noticed by the director of Harvard University’s Institute for Advanced Theatre Training at the American Repertory Theatre and was invited to obtain his M.F.A there. After graduating in 2002 he has performed in over 30 plays regionally and off-Broadway including many with his own award-winning theatre company Fovea Floods. He now lives in Venice, California with his dog, Boss.
