Having gone to Comic-Con and seeing the Filmation panel, and having picked up the DVD, getting autographs et al, well, all I can say is, frankly, it was a mistake for JP to not go. It would have meant a total of about 6 hours of work on Fri/Sat. Her presence was a glaring hole -- many people questioning what was up, whether she'd died (*not* a good impression to leave if one is trying to get more acknowledgment!) etc. Everyone else there for Filmation programming and DVD's was wonderful and chatted away happily with all the fans, even Bob Burns who is not in the best of health. And please don't tell me how hard the entertainment industry is to work for/in, I live with a TV producer, so I know it full well. I respect JP's decision to get totally out of acting and move on, many actors do, but they also understand that they're still part of even a minor icon. I believe Yvonne Craig (Batgirl) has been a real estate agent and mom with a family for decades, yet she still goes to many of the autograph shows, cons, etc. and keeps in personal touch with her fans. But then again there's also Comic-Con's fan-friendly policy of "the first autograph must be free, and you can't force people to buy your stuff" policy -- which pulls away the financial inducement of B/C-list or out-of-the-business stars to appear. Whatever. C'est la vie. Anyway, glad she's still around and doing her thing.
