Majors, whose portrayal of “Col. Steve Austin” in the hit television series and other TV movies and series helped make the “Six Million Dollar Man” franchise one of the most popular of the 1970's into the 1980's, got his first big regular role as “Heath Barkley” in “The Big Valley,” which ran from 1965-69. After co-starring in "Owen Marshall: Counselor at Law" in the early 1970's, he was cast in the lead role in a TV movie version of The Six Million Dollar Man that was later turned into the hugely successful series.
Majors joins a group of celebrities at New England Comic Con that includes Adam West, Burt Ward, Lee Majors, Ernie Hudson, and several members of the cast of “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer,” including James Marsters, Charisma Carpenter, Nicholas Brendon and others. Ethan Van Sciver, Greg Horn, Michael Golden, Mark Texeira and Arthur Suydam are among the leading comic artists, writers and creators who are scheduled to attend.
