NOTE: Unfortunately, Rory canceled this appearance, opting to do a private autograph session instead for which fans could mail in items.
GAME of Thrones star Rory McCann is to make a star appearance at this year’s Comic Con Scotland, we can reveal.
The 50-year-old Glasgow actor – best known for portraying Sandor “The Hound” Clegane on the fantasy hit – will be meeting fans at the event in October.
Standing at a whopping 6 ft 6, Rory will be hard to miss when a galaxy of stars arrive for the convention later this year.
Rory burst onto the scene more than 20 years ago when he appeared in an advertisement for Scott’s Porridge Oats, dressed in a vest and kilt.
But it’s his hugely successful run on Game of Thrones from 2011 until 2019 that landed him other top roles in movies like XXX: Return of Xander Cage.
The two-day celebration is being held at The Royal Highland Centre and promises to be packed full of celeb guests from across the world, Q&A sessions with stars and traders selling fantasy and sci-fi goodies.
Comic Con Scotland – from Andy Kleek and the Monopoly Events team – is in its second year. The 2018 event, Scotland Comic Con – For The Love Of 80s, was a massive hit with fans bringing stars like Knight Rider’s David Hasselhoff, The Incredible Hulk star Lou Ferrigno and Ghostbuster legends Ernie Hudson, Ray Parker Junior and William Atherton.
This year, organisers promise it will be even bigger and better – with more names to be announced in the coming days.
