This past weekend, Cincinnati Comic Expo returned for its yearly event, bringing exciting guests, artists, and more to fans. On Sunday of the event, Laurie Holden (The Boys), Brandon Routh (DC’s Legends of Tomorrow), and Cara Buono (Stranger Things) capped off the weekend with their panels.
Holden discussed some of her more well-known endeavors, including The X-Files, Silent Hill, The Walking Dead, and The Boys. She shared some of more scary aspects of her job, including her experience on Silent Hill and the injuries she received through some of her jobs. She revealed that while creepy on screen, the zombies of The Walking Dead were really just a bunch of sweet people. She also expressed her gratitude about working on The Boys, and revealed that singing for the show was one of her greatest joys. She also discussed a little more about her work with stopping human trafficking.
Routh discussed similar sentiments and noted how appreciative he was of the legacy Christopher Reeve created as Superman. Routh was also excited he got to reprise his Superman Returns role for The CW’s “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover. He shared some behind-the-scenes info on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and how he enjoyed working with his wife, Courtney Ford, who played Nora Darhk. Routh also discussed his roles in The Rookie and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.
Buono ended the weekend, and also expressed sentiments about her time on The Sopranos, including sharing a funny story about when they went to the Emmys. She admitted her reluctance towards The Girl From Plainville but was ultimately glad she accepted the project and appreciated how the show went about the story. Buono also talked a bit about Karen from Stranger Things and loved the scenes she shared with Dacre Montgomery (Billy). She also talked about how talking with a thick Bronx accent affected her career.
