Fan Expo 2017 : Stranger Things, GoT, TWD, Tim Curry, Star Wars + More

One of my favourite events is back again this year. Fan Expo Canada, our country’s largest comics, sci-fi, horror, anime, and gaming event, will welcome celebrity guests, cosplayers, and fans to the four day, all-ages gathering. Fan Expo 2017 will take place August 31st – September 3rd at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Tickets are already available at www.fanexpocanada.com/tickets.

Fan Expo 2017 Fan Expo 2017

This year is set to be one of the best yet with many celebrities from the comics, sci-fi, horror, anime, and gaming genres. The cast of the remake of the Rocky Horror Picture Show will be on site joined by original movie star Tim Curry. The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus will also be on site to sign autographs and meet the fans. Anthony Daniels who plays C3PO in the Star Wars movies will pay us a visit while the world’s most famous shark-hunter turned Hollywood icon, Richard Dreyfuss will also attend. Lena Headey who plays Cersei Lannister in Game of Thrones will be there this year as well as actress Kathleen Turner from Romancing the Stone, Serial Mom and Californication. The thing I am most excited for is to see the cast of Netflix’s show Stranger Things. Cast members in attendance include Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo and Caleb McLaughlin.
