Julia Montgomery at Motor City Comic Con 2018

Julia Montgomery was at the Motor City Comic Con 2018 as part of a Revenge of the Nerds mini-reunion. I don't intentionally do it, but I usually know and  celebrities for roles other than the "big" roles. Montgomery was one of the best examples of this.
While her most well-known movie was Nerds, Montgomery has a lengthy resume on television and movies. She was in Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot, The Kindred and many television shows, including "adult Steph" on Full House. I first saw her on One Life To Live in the late-70s.
When Cuzz and I saw her at MCCC, I talked to her about her role on OLTL. She seemed amused and pleasantly surprised that I remembered her from that role. Her weekend was filled with Nerds talk and she was grateful for that recognition, too, but she said it was a nice change to discuss her OLTL days. We talked about storylines and old co-stars. I think she was impressed (scared?) that I knew so much of the OLTL history.
This was a rare chance to meet Montgomery, as she doesn't do many appearances. This is one of the cool things when MCCC does these sort of mini-reunions. Often, it allows fans to meet a wide range of the actors from the movie, plus ones you might better know from other roles.
