Karen Gillan, who is probably best known for her role as Amy Pond on Doctor Who, will be joining fans at Comic Con. Although Gillan got her first break as a model, she began making her way into acting in 2006 when she landed a role on a Scottish detective drama called Rebus. She first appeared on Doctor Who in 2008 as a Soothsayer for the episode Fires of Pompeii. Gillan began her long-term role on Doctor Who in 2010 as Amy Pond, the companion to Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith. She appeared in seasons six and seven of Doctor Who. Since then, Gillan has starred in the horror film Oculus, followed by her role as Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy.
ABC Family star Keegan Allen will also be joining the Comic Con guest list. Allen has gained a large following thanks to his role on ABC Family’s #1 rated series “Pretty Little Liars”. His work on the show has been rewarded with two Teen Choice Award nominations, one in 2011 and one in 2013 (the year he won). Allen attended AMDA (American Musical and Dramatic Academy) instead of going to a university. Alongside his ABC Family fame, Allen has held roles in two films directed by James Franco, Bukowski and The Sound and the Fury, as well as in Gia Coppola’s debut film Palo Alto. Allen is also an avid photographer, and his first photo book, life.love.beauty is set to be published by St. Martin’s Press in 2015.
Batman (Adam West) and Robin (Burt Ward) will be reunited in Reno. West and Ward played starred on the Batman and Robin series from 1966 to 1968, and their fame as the dynamic duo have stayed with them ever since. Ward wrote an autobiography about his time on Batman titled “Boy Wonder: My Life in Tights”, and signed copies of this autobiography will be available at Wizard World. Outside of his Batman career, Ward has appeared in Moving Targets, Homeboys in Outer Space, Alien Force, The Dwelling, Smoothtalker, and Kill Crazy.
American actor Sean Patrick Flannery has been added to the group, as well. Known for his roles in The Boondock Saints, The Dead Zone, The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, and The Young and the Restless, Flannery has quite an impressive resume. He also appeared in the music video for “Howlin’ For You” by The Black Keys in 2011.
