On the heels of that devastating season finale last night, it seems that some of the citizens of Westeros will make an appearance in Atlanta this September.
The Official Dragon Con Facebook page posted this teaser on their page earlier this afternoon:
For those who watched the Season Finale last night, what was your reaction in one word?
Perhaps a few cast members will want to talk about it when they join us for #DragonCon2015!
About an hour later, they announced that Kristian Nairn has been confirmed for the event. Naim plays the loveable Hodor on the show. Hodor, who is the verbally challenged travelling companion of Bran Stark, has been missing from this season due to the show placing a hiatus on Bran’s story (since they reached the end of book-Bran’s arc at the end of Season 4). Aside from his work on Thrones, Nairn is also a well-known DJ.
Also announced this afternoon is Finn Jones, who plays The Knight of Flowers, Loras Tyrell. Loras is the brother of Queen Margaery, and is currently a guest of the High Septon in the dungeons below the Red Keep in Westeros.
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. This year’s event will take place September 4-7. Ticket information can be found on the official website.
