Finally!! After months of being “ho-hum” about the current guest list, I can finally squee in fangirlish delight: John Noble, most recently known for his work on the FOX drama, “Sleepy Hollow”, has been announced to appear at Dragon Con 2015.
Noble, who is also well-known for his work on “Fringe”, plays Henry Parrish/Jeremy Crane/Horseman of War in the hit show based on the tales of Washington Irving. The character was introduced to audiences first as Parrish, a “sin eater” who was seemingly on the side of the show’s protagonists, Ichabod Crane and Abbie Mills. In a shocking season one finale, it was revealed that Parrish was actually Jeremy Crane – the son of Ichabod Crane and his wife Katrina, who is a witch. The character was also revealed to be the Horseman of War, a servant of the demon Moloch sent to begin a chain of events that would lead to Moloch’s rising and an inevitable apocalypse. Henry Parrish was killed off just before the end of Season 2, but dead doesn’t always stay dead in Sleepy Hollow, so whether his character is gone for good remains to be seen.
“Sleepy Hollow” was recently renewed for a third season, which will begin in the fall.
Dragon Con is the largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film. Every Labor Day weekend, about 40,000 people crowd the streets and take over the hotels of downtown Atlanta to meet friends, celebrities, cosplay and totally geek out.
