Flashback Weekend is postponed to 2021 due to the pandemic. While I won't have fun there this year, I recall some of the great folks I have met there in the past.
Brad Dourif made his big screen debut in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. He also appeared in Blue Velvet, one of my favorites. He got my attention when he appeared as Charles Lee Ray/Chucky in Child's Play.
I loved Child's Play and its sequel. I thought it was such a unique concept and i loved Brad's voice as Chucky.
Brad has remained busy on television and the big screen He even co-starred in Body Parts,another favorite cult classic. He also did voice work in a few video games.
I was very excited to meet Brad at Flashback Weekend. I always feel for celeb guests like Brad, who are known for voice work. Everyone wanted him to do the Chucky voice. It has to get tiring, even though it has made him lots of money. Brad handles it all well though. He embraces the role and is great to fans.
Brad's daughter Fiona actually co-starred in Curse of Chucky. The film takes place 25 years after the events of the first film, as Chucky torments Nica Pierce (Fiona). I later had the pleasure of meeting Fiona, but I have yet to meet them together.
