The guest list continues to grow for Eyecon: Vampire Diaries 2, with another young cast member added for what is sure to be a fun event in Atlanta.
Bryton James, who played young warlock Luka in season 2, has been added to the guest list. He joins stars Nina Dobrev (Elena/Katherine), Kat Graham (Bonnie) and Daniel Gillies (Elijah) for the three-day event, which will take place Halloween weekend at the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel in Downtown Atlanta. This event will mark the second convention specific to “The Vampire Diaries” TV show, which has been filmed locally since its inception. Eyecon is most widely known for conventions based on the TV shows “Supernatural” and “True Blood” and for The Twilight Saga film series.
James joined the show in season 2 as newcomer Luka Martin, the son of a powerful warlock who was working with evil (?) vampire Elijah in order to secure release for his daughter Greta, whom he thought was being held captive by Elijah’s brother Klaus. Luka set out to get close to fellow witch Bonnie in an effort to get close to Elena (who Klaus was after), and in doing so added a brief triangle-like element to the Bonnie/Jeremy relationship that was developing. However, things didn’t quite work out well for Luka or the rest of the Martin family.
James can also be seen on the daytime soap “The Young and the Restless”, playing the character of Devon Hamilton. Fans of the 90’s sitcom “Family Matters” will also remember him as little Richie Crawford, cousin of the Winslow kids.
Eyecon’s 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.
Eyecon: Vampire Diaries 2 will take place at the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel October 28-30, 2011. Tickets levels and pricing information can be found at this link, and can now be purchased online via the official website.
