Eyecon: Vampire Diaries 2 is beginning to shape up pretty nicely in terms of celeberity guests, as actor Daniel Gillies has now been confirmed to join castmates Nina Dobrev and Katerina Graham when the convention descends upon Atlanta Halloween weekend.
Gillies plays the-Original-who-just-won’t-die vampire Elijah, who was last seen being killed by his powerful, hybrid brother Klaus in the season 2 finale. He will participate in a Q&A, photo op and autograph sessions, Banquet and Sixties Dance, according to the Eyecon website.
Eyecon: Vampire Diaries 2 will be held in Downtown Atlanta the weekend of Oct 28-30 at the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel. Events will include a Celebrity Q&A, photo-op and autograph sessions, a Celebrity Banquet, a 60s themed dance (similar to the one in the season 2 episode “The Last Dance”), and a Mystic Falls Halloween party. There will also be fan panels, a dealer/vendor room, and a concert by musical guests The Nova Echo.
Ticket sales for Eyecon: Vampire Diaries 2 will begin on June 13 at noon; ticket prices and information can be found at this link. “The Vampire Diaries” will return for season 3 in the fall on The CW network; it will now air on Friday nights at 8pm, right before “Supernatural”.
