Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished

From "Oh my god!!!" to "Oh, THAT guy," this year's Oz Comic-Con has some incredible special guests

Let your inner nerd geek out and freak out at the ultimate expo for fans of pop culture. That includes comic books, sci-fi, cosplay and gaming, with plenty of demos, competitions, shows and workshops to meet those needs. It's the special guests we're always holding out for though, and this year the celebrity appearances include:

Kristian Nairn
Game of Thrones fans, try to contain yourselves – there’s going to be a photo op with the one-word wonder that is Hodor (but we advise against pulling a “Bran Stark” and trying for a piggy-back).

Daniel Portman
Joining Hodor is local squire, Podrick Payne. After being given from Tyrion Lannister to Brienne of Tarth (we're still on Game of Thrones, OK?), Pod’s now been gifted to Melbourne.

Richard Dean Anderson
Aka Colonel Jack O’Neill on Stargate SG-1 (or TV’s incredibly resourceful MacGyver for the more mature-aged fans).

Tom Skerritt
He’s the guy from Alien – not the 150 sequels – the original 1979 sci-fi masterpiece, in which he plays Dallas. He’s also Viper in Top Gun, and "oh, that guy!" from over 40 other movies.

Veronica Cartwright
She’s practically sci-fi royalty, a veteran if you will, having starred in the original Alien, Invasion of the Body Snatchers and The X-Files.

Shawn & Aaron Ashmore
They’re sci-fi’s prettiest twins; Shawn from X-Men and Aaron from Smallville (although it might be the other way around – they are literally identical so who can tell really).
