Biehn, Patrick, Furlong, Henriksen join Hamilton from 'Terminator' World; Hurd, Frakes Supplement Martin-Green from 'Trek' Universe at Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, January 5-7; 'Yellowjackets' Lewis Also Added

NEW ORLEANS - EntSun -- Already brimming with guests from the science fiction world, FAN EXPO New Orleans took another leap into the future (or perhaps the past?) with the additions of several standouts from two of the most iconic genre franchises at the convention, January 5-7 at Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, as announced today.

From The Terminator, Michael Biehn and Lance Henriksen from the original 1984 film will be joined by Robert Patrick and Edward Furlong from the sequel Terminator 2: Judgment Day, as well as Linda Hamilton, making this one of the most significant "Terminator" reunions ever.

And as far as sci-fi universes go, it's hard to beat "Star Trek" for variety and longevity, and FAN EXPO New Orleans brings several of the iterations together, adding Michelle Hurd ("Star Trek: Picard") and Jonathan Frakes ("Star Trek: The Next Generation."

And rounding out today's announcement is Juliette Lewis, currently a regular on the Showtime drama "Yellowjackets" and a veteran of more than 100 movies and TV shows.

Biehn, best known for his role as "Kyle Reese," sent back through time to defeat the Terminator character in the eponymous film, went on to star in other James Cameron movies Aliens and The Abyss.

Henriksen co-starred in The Terminator as LAPD police officer "Vukovich," but he'd already acted in more than 20 TV shows and films, from Close Encounters of the Third Kind to The Right Stuff to "The A Team."

Patrick took his turn as the "bad guy" (or "bad android") "T-1000" in Judgment Day, earning accolades including Saturn Award and MTV Movie Award nominations for the portrayal.

Furlong has long been a convention favorite of fans, for many because of his young "John Connor" portrayal in Judgment Day, which represented his acting debut, and for his dozens of other parts in films like Detroit Rock City, American History X and The Green Hornet.

Hurd has appeared in a wide array of films and TV shows, from sci-fi hits like "Star Trek: Picard" (as "Raffi Musiker") to dramas like "Blindspot" to network series "90210," "Gossip Girl" and "ER."

Frakes has made "Will Riker" one of the most iconic characters in the "Star Trek" universe, bringing him up the ranks all the way to Commander from "TNG" through the current Paramount+ series "Picard."

Lewis first caught the attention of the entertainment world as a teen star in "I Married Dora," National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation and Cape Fear.
