The Game of Thrones Stars Going to London Film & Comic Con 2018 | Happy Piranha
London Film and Comic Con is already gearing up to have an awesome array of film and TV guests from some of our favourite pop culture creations. Among them is a host of actors from HBO's hugely popular TV series Game of Thrones. If you’ve not heard of that, you’re probably living under a tree. Let's take a closer look at who's scheduled to attend so far.
Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo)
Jason Momoa played the infamous Khal Drogo, leader of the Dothraki and husband to Daenerys Targaryen in HBO’s TV adaptation of Georg R.R Martin’s Game of Thrones. Jason has played Ronon Dex in Stargate Atlantis, Conan in the 2011 Conan the Barbarian film and plays Declan Harp in the Netflix series Frontier. Momoa also appears as Aquaman in the DC Extended Universe. We think he’ll be pretty popular at London Film & Comic Con!
Rory McCann (The Hound)
Rory McCann plays the towering, scar-faced character Sandor ‘’The Hound’’ Clegane in Game of Thrones. He’s been a character whose arc and relationships we’ve really enjoyed. Rory is also well known for his role as Michael ‘’Lurch’’ in the hilarious cop comedy film Hot Fuzz. He’s also starred in Alexander, Shameless, State of Play and Atilla the Hun.
Iwan Rheon (Ramsay Bolton)
Most of us know Iwan Rheon for his delightfully evil portrayal of the crazed Ramsay Bolton. He’s also played Simon Bellamy in E4’s Misfits, Maximus in ABC’s Inhumans (another two series we've very much enjoyed) and acted in Vicious and Riviera.
Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark)
Isaac Hempstead Wright is probably best known for his portrayal of Bran Stark in Game of Thrones. Isaac has also done voice overs in Family Guy and Revolting Rhymes and played in the films The Awakening and Closed Circuit. We think we’ll be seeing him in more films to come for sure!
Paul Kaye (Thoros of Myr)
Paul Kay played Thoros of Myr the red priest who is able to resurrect Beric Dondarrion in Game of Thrones. Paul achieved notoriety in 1995 with his character Dennis Pennis, a shock celebrity interviewer on The Sunday Show and has recently played the main character in his own show Strutter on MTV.
Vladimir Furdik (The Night King)
If you’ve watched Game of Thrones, you’ll be familiar with the uncompromising, vacant and deathly gaze of the Night King and the man behind that face since season six is Vladimir Furdick (Richard Brake played the role previously). Vladimir is a stuntman and is also known for his work in the James Bond film Skyfall and the 2010 Robin Hood as well as being a stunt double for varying characters in Game of Thrones itself.
Ellie Kendrick (Meera Reed)
Ellie Kendrick plays Meera Reed, one of Bran Stark’s friends and loyal companions in the Game of Thrones series. Ellie is also known for playing Anne Frank in the BBC’s miniseries The Diary of Anne Frank and has appeared on screen in Waking the Dead, Doctors, In 2 Minds and Prime Suspect: The Final Act.
Staz Nair (Qhono)
Staz Nair plays Qhono, a Dothraki warrior and lieutenant in the Khaleesi’s Targaryen army. Staz has also appeared as Rocky in The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let’s do the Time Warp Again and as Bharat Kumar in the film Bazodee.
Daniel Naprous (Oznak Zo Pahl)
Daniel Naprous played the notorious Darth Vader in Rogue One along with Spencer Wilding. Daniel also appears in Game of Thrones, where he plays Oznak Zo Pahl, a champion of Meereen and appears in the Game of Thrones episode '‘Breaker of Chains’’.
Daniel has a multitude of stuntman credits under his belt including films such as Harry Potter, Wonder Woman, Kingsmen and Children of Men.
