Yet another guest is booked to join us on next year's Battlestar Galactica Anniversary Celebration aka "Emissaries: Galacticon 3". We're happy to announce that Anne Lockhart will be joining the original Battlestar Galactica series part of this convention.
When Glen Larson approached Anne Lockhart for a part in Battlestar Galactica's series pilot, she turned it down. Anne wanted to play a strong female character, hence why Glen Larson approached her again for the role of Sheba in the mid season, epic, double episode "The Living Legend" which starred Lloyd Bridges as the legendary Commander Cain. She immediately accepted the role and quickly became one of the main characters in the series. Sadly, due to the cancellation of the series after the first season, we'll never know how the new relationship with Apollo would have grown... but be sure to ask her on the convention!
She was a favourite of Glen Larson, and appeared in many of his other television series including The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries, B.J. and the Bear, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century (where she played twins, "Jennifer/Leila Markeson"), The Fall Guy, Knight Rider and Airwolf. She did two episodes of Magnum P.I.: in one episode she plays the younger version of the character of her mother (June Lockhart), in the other she plays a younger version of herself.
Anne Lockhart has a long career in both film and television and has done hundreds of commercials. She is also highly in demand providing voice work, having done over 100 television shows and movies. On stage Anne is active in Shakespearian plays with the Kingsmen Shakespeare Company that she helped found. They also developed a program to go into schools to educate and entertain the kids about Shakespeare and offer 3-4 week Shakespeare summer camps for children aged 8 to 16, and teach them a variety of skills like fencing, writing sonnets and acting.
In 1983, Anne Lockhart combined her love of riding horses (she has was won championships in cutting, reining, team penning and barrel racing) and desire to help children as one of the cofounders of Ben Johnson's Pro Celebrity Rodeos. They hold events in 4 US cities every year, and have raised millions of dollars to support various charities. The Annual Roundup for Autism started in 1990. It is an annual event held in Dallas that offers a PRCA & Celebrity Rodeo, golf tournament, ball, silent and live auction, casinos, and live music.
Most of her time is now spent with family, doing voice work, and raising money for her children's charity through rodeos and her convention appearances.
