This is a weekly feature highlighting friends who have met celebs.
Chuck "Cuzz" Gekas made his first trek to the Motor City Comic Con this year. Cuzz has been to other such conventions, but this time I have the digital images documenting his celebrity encounters. One of his favorites from the MCCC was Claudia Wells.
I'll let Cuzz take over from here...
Claudia Wells played the role of Jennifer Parker in the first Back to the Future movie. She played Michael J. Fox's girlfriend and was the perfect girl next door. She was unable to participate in the sequels and was replaced by Elisabeth Shue, and while Shue is a fine actress, Claudia was actually much better suited for the part. Her absence was not the only problem with the sequels. The original was a very good movie with great characters, an interesting story line and a satisfying ending. The sequels were a convoluted mess with characters shifting back and forth in time which succeeded only in confusing and annoying most viewers.
Claudia was genuinely appreciative of fans who remembered her from her significant role in the movie.
I cannot disagree with anything Cuzz stated. Once again, his astutue assessment of the situation is dead on. I appreciate his thoughts and his willingness to share the photo. I also appreciate his solid photography at the event.
