all Game of Thrones fans in the North West of England….
It might be an American fantasy drama, created by HBO,
but since it 1st came out in April 2011, this
television series has captured audiences across the
world. Created by both David Benioff and D. B. Weiss,
who would have thought it would now go on to Season 6?
If you want to share your interest with other GOT fans,
chat about your fears that one of your favourite
characters are about to be killed off or voice your
views as to who should be… Take note, as some of the
Game of Thrones cast along with the Iron Throne itself
are heading to Southport very soon as part of a weekend
dedicated to the HBO series.
The event will be raising awareness and funds for
Southport support group Fibro Info Southport along the
Crown Con is being organised by Westeros fanatic, Andy
Sciacca and he believes the convention, which is being
held just few weeks before the hotly anticipated season 6
premiere hits the airwave will prove worth while.
Andy Sciacca said:- "We are bringing in actors
to Southport to meet the fans, talk about their
experiences of being in the show, sign autographs and
pose for photos. It has always been one of my favourite
TV shows. From previous experiences, all the Game of
Thrones actors are really nice people and keen to get to
know the fans. They will always make the effort to try
and meet every person there."
Whitewalker actor Ross Mullan, Luke Barnes who plays
Rast from the Night's Watch, and Josef Atlin who plays
Pypar, friend of Jon Snow, will be visiting the event at
the Prince of Wales Hotel on 2 April and 3 April 2016. Andy, from
Southport, has done a bit of acting himself, and has
plenty of experience with Comic Cons and specialist
conventions, having visited them over 30 years. He
said:- "We are so happy that local businesses such
as Subway, Bar and Burger, Jo Rutherford Photography and
The Geek Pit are getting behind this event and hope that
other local businesses will help support us as well so
this event, the only UK event dedicated to the show, can
benefit the whole Town."
