Ailing "Starsky and Hutch" actor David Soul is too frail to travel to America from his London home — so his old costars flew in for an appearance at the Liverpool Comic Con! Paul Michael Glaser and Antonio "Huggy Bear" Fargas made the trip after David was forced to miss convention appearances in Los Angeles and New Jersey, as previously revealed by The National ENQUIRER. And in a heartbreaking scene, Paul even had to roll David into the Comic Con in a wheelchair!
While he tried to remain in good spirits during the rare appearance, David still seemed to be struggling. "He would laugh and get going about some memory from his old show," said an eyewitness, "but then you could see him struggling to catch his breath and get ready to talk again!" Attendees also noted that David sometimes struggled to get around while using only a cane.
A convention organizer in America told The ENQUIRER that David's health issues "must be serious, because the promoters offered him a ton of money to get the full cast together" for appearances in the U.S. David had already told fans in Los Angeles that he couldn't visit the city, saying: “Due to my medical condition, I have been advised by my lung specialist that I shouldn’t risk the 11-hour-plus flight.”
