Actor Iwan Rheon, who played villain Ramsay Bolton in Games of Thrones, will make a guest appearance at Middle East Film & Comic Con (MEFCC).
MEFCC will be held from April 11-13 at Dubai World Trade Centre.
Rheon will be joined by storyboard artist and original concept designer William Simpson in a meet-and-greet event.
Together they will lead a panel and Q&A session to provide a behind-the-scenes insight into the show.
Michael Lamprecht, MEFCC event manager said: “MEFCC is delighted to be giving Game of Thrones fans this special opportunity to meet the actor behind one of the show’s most notorious characters.
“It’s also a huge honour to welcome William Simpson to Dubai. William is the storyboard artist who designed the world of the Westeros and is fondly known as the Father of the Dragons. It’s a fantastic chance for fans and budding artists to interact with one of the masters of his profession.”
Iwan Rheon and William Simpson will lead the Game of Thrones panel in the MEFCC Theatre on Saturday 13th to discuss behind-the-scenes insights, and speculation on the upcoming season content.
The Theatre is free to enter for all MEFCC Ticket Holders, and features celebrity panels and Q&As throughout the show days.
There will be many other Game of Thrones-related activities and exclusive merchandise opportunities at the Middle East’s leading pop culture convention.
Funko Inc, the brand behind a host of pop culture collectables, is bringing its series of limited-edition Game of Thrones vinyl figures to MEFCC.
Meanwhile, Montegrappa, an Italian luxury pen manufacturer, will use MEFCC to premier its new series of lavish writing instruments that pay homage to the ruling families of Westeros, a fictional continent in Game of Thrones. Entitled ‘Winter is Here’, the jewel-encrusted objects are limited to 300 pieces in silver and seven in gold.
Besides these, the bookstore chain Kinokuniya will give MEFCC visitors the chance to win signed copies of Fire & Blood by George R R Martin.
