Supanova Pop Culture Expo – Australia’s homegrown Comic-Con – has revealed the first round of celebrity Supa-Stars signed on to appear at their events on the Gold Coast (April 22-23) and in Melbourne (April 29-30) in 2017.
In one of the biggest ever coups for Supanova fans, and arguably the most successful primetime TV actor of the last twenty years, David Boreanaz will be coming to Australia for the very first time.
Joss Whedon fans will no doubt remember when David was introduced as ‘Angel’ on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. But no one could have predicted his talent and popularity would result in headlining his own series Angel for six seasons, before then embarking on an incredible twelve seasons as ‘Seeley Booth’ on Bones.
David is joined by some of Hollywood’s on-the-rise stars including Cory Michael Smith who currently stars in the Batman series Gotham, as Edward Nygma aka The Riddler; while fans of The 100 are in for a treat with Marie Avgeropoulos and Jessica Harmon also appearing. Maria stars as the rebellious Octavia, while Jessica plays Niylah, however some fans may also recognise Jessica for her work as Dale Bozzio on iZombie.
April will also feature some of gaming and animation’s most prolific and in-demand voice actors, including Nolan North (Uncharted, Assassin’s Creed, Deadpool, Young Justice, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Transformers: Prime), Vic Mignogna (Fullmetal Alchemist, Dragon Ball Z, Naruto: Shippuden), and Stephanie Nadolny (Dragon Ball Z). But their talents don’t end there with Nolan having starred in televsions series such as Pretty Little Liars, and films such Star Trek Into Darkness; while Vic stars as Captain Kirk in the critically acclaimed Star Trek Continues.
Last but not least is New York Times bestselling author, Patricia Briggs. Specialising in urban and traditional fantasy, Patricia has written 17 novels to date, and is best known for the Mercy Thompson, and Alpha and Omega series.
There’ll be plenty more Supa-Star news to come as Supanova works towards building the biggest and brightest events yet.
