Phoenix Comicon recently announced the addition of Alex Kingston, River Song from hit science fiction show ‘Doctor Who’, and they aren’t stopping there. Joining them for their 2016 convention is the Doctor’s Companion Billie Piper. Also new to the guest lineup is ‘Supernatural’ actor Mark Pellegrino, and even more comic and author guests. Come on inside for details.
Billie Piper is recognized by “Whovians” as Rose Tyler, “Companion” to Doctor Who’s 9th and 10th Doctors as well as her cameos in later episodes and ‘Doctor Who’ specials. Additionally, Billie is well known for her work on the television shows ‘Secret Diary of a Call Girl’ and ‘Penny Dreadful’.
“Doctor Who is an incredibly popular show with convention-goers and has some of the most passionate fans around. It is important for us to give our attendees the guests that they would like to see the most”, says Phoenix Comicon Guest Relations Director, Brandy Kuschel. With both River Song and Rose Tyler at the same convention, it’s plain to see that she’s not kidding.
American actor Mark Pellegrino is best known for his work as Lucifer in the hit show ‘Supernatural’, Jacob in ‘Lost’, Bishop in ‘Being Human’, and Paul Bennett in ‘Dexter’. He is currently a recurring character on ABC’s television thriller series ‘Quantico’.
“As a leading pop culture convention, it is important to try to cover as many popular fandoms in our guest selection as possible”, says Phoenix Comicon Guest Relations Director, Brandy Kuschel. As more and more guest announcements are made, the depth of variety is plain to see!
