I love that there seems to be a Con for everybody somewhere, and Pensacola Comic Con is just one of them holding down the geeks in the Gulf Coast. It’s one of the country’s number of growing Cons as geek culture becomes synonymous with pop culture and all things cool, and next year’s Pensacon, going down from February 19th to February 21st, promises some pretty impressive celebrity guests like Gemma Whelan from Game of Thrones and Peter Davison the Fifth Doctor from Doctor Who.
Here is a full list of the celebrity guests:
Among the celebrities scheduled to make an appearance are comedian and voice actor Dana Snyder (who voiced the character Master Shake on “Aqua Teen Hunger Force”); “Star Wars” actors Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), David Prowse (Darth Vader), Tim Rose (Admiral Ackbar) and Mike Quinn (Nien Numb); “Doctor Who” stars Peter Davison (the fifth doctor) and Dan Starkey (Strax); actors Jonathan Frakes (Riker, from “Star Trek: The Next Generation”) and Bruce Boxleitner (Alan Bradley and Tron, from the original “Tron”); “Rocky Horror Picture Show” alumni Barry Bostwick (Brad Majors), Nell Campbell (Columbia) and Patricia Quinn (Magenta); and “Game of Thrones” stars Eugene Simon (Lacel Lanister), Ellie Kendrick (Meera Reed), Gemma Whelan (Yara Greyjoy) and Jessica Henwick (Nymeria Sand).
One of the Sand Snakes?!?!?! Yes, please! If you’re looking to attend, don’t hesitate. They’ve already sold out of VIP passes, but three day passes are still available so get in where you fit in before you don’t fit in at all.
