The Motor City Comic Con returns May 17-19. I continue to recall some of my favorite moments, while I look forward to this year's MCCC.
Already a four year acting veteran, Jon Povost joined the cast of Lassie when he was only seven. Provost stayed on the series for 7 seasons. Provost had a few more roles, before he left show business. He eventually returned to acting when he appeared on The New Lassie in 1989.
Provost has kept busy working for animal caused and appearing at conventions. Some 50 years after his first tv role, Provost was still very popular at MCCC in 2013. He was in great spirits and happy to be doing the convention. He graciously gave me a few minutes of his time for our interview. That interview can be found at On the Beat With Jon Provost.
