I had a great trip to Wrexham earlier this month, for the first day of Wales Comic Con. I’ve been lucky enough to attend a couple of times in the past, but this one was particularly exciting as I got to meet the fabulous Denis O’Hare!
We started out with a Q&A Panel for The Walking Dead, with Michael Cudlitz (Abraham Ford) and Scott Wilson (Hershel Greene) which was unfortunately short but nonetheless sweet. Michael Cudlitz was particularly hilarious!
There was the usual enjoyment of wandering about identifying cosplayers – lots of Jokers and Harley Quinns this year, and many a Negan and Rick Grimes. I bought a really stunning piece of ‘IT’ inspired artwork, which is now adorning my wall at home, and got to hold a very cute little owl courtesy of Owl Rescue 🙂
We did the rounds of the Signing Zone, where we spotted – amongst others – Sean Pertwee (Gotham, Dog Soldiers), Nicholas Brendan (Buffy), Sam J Jones (Flash Gordon) and Mitch Pileggi (The X Files, Sons of Anarchy).
I then had the pleasure of briefly meeting Denis O’Hare for a photo op! Denis is my favourite American Horror Story cast member, and was spectacular as Russell Edgington in True Blood. I was very pleasantly surprised to see him on the list of guests for the Wales Comic Con (it seemed rather unlikely!) so I couldn’t miss the chance to meet him. A very charming man!
