Work on cult media has often tended to explore the role of textual qualities (Eco 1995) and authorship (e.g. Hutchings 2003) in the cultification process. Stardom, however, has been significantly under-explored in relation to discourses of cult. Just as constructions of cult status can be multiple around a single text, for example taking in novelistic authors and filmic auteurs (Hills 2011), so too might stardom work in a variety of ways in relation to cult discourses.
