Q:Oh boy I've got a whole bunch of people I, and my family members, would love to see! I'll just write them all down in one ask. Rebecca Sugar and the Writers / Voice Actors of Steven Universe (especially Zach Callison), Pendleton Ward, Ian McKellen, Orlando Bloom, Viggo Mortensen, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, Nichelle Nichols, George Takei, and STAN LEE (I caught him the last time he went to ECCC, he was fantastic!).
Whoa, nice! The only ones we can’t accept as guest suggestions for this year are Nichelle Nichols, George Takei, Leonard Nimoy, and William Shatner, because they’ve all been celebrity guests in recent years, and we normally don’t repeat guests. The rest are excellent suggestions, and we’ll pass them along. Thanks!
Q:Do you think any of the Hannibal cast could attend?? Such as Mads Mikkelsen, Hugh Dancy, Raul Esparza, Caroline Dhavernas????
Yes. Those are all excellent guest suggestions! Mads is already on our list of suggestions, so we’ll add the other three as well!
Q:NATALIE DORMER OH GOD.
Q:Has Pedro Pascal been suggested yet for a guest? Him, or anyone else from Game of Thrones, would be super awesome.
We have received suggestions for Pedro Pascal, he would be an excellent addition to our celebrity guest roster. If you had to pick the top 3 people from Game of Thrones that you’d like to meet, who would they be?
Q:Have you guys thought about having any of the Teen Wolf stars as guest. It'd be fantastic to meet Tyler Hoechlin or Tyler Posey, maybe even Dylan O'Brien (especially with The Maze Runner coming out)?
Yes, we have thought about having Teen Wolf guests, and we’ve added every Teen Wolf guest suggestion to our list, and our celebs team is doing what they can to make it happen!
Q:Any chance you could get John Barrowman to stroll into town?
I don’t think you understand how much we want John Barrowman to come to ECCC. Heck, just to even hang out in Seattle for a couple days, OMG that would be so cool.
SOrry. We’re trying our best and we sincerely hope we can make it happen. :)
Q:Would you be up for asking Babs Tarr, Cameron Stewart, and Brenden Fletcher to the next ECCC? The new Batgirl looks like it's going to be super rad!
Q:Two questions! A.) Any chance of Nightvale coming back next year? B.) Maybe you could get Misha Collins or Benedict Cumberbatch in town?
Two answers! A) There’s always a chance! If you want them to come, let them know! B) We can try with Benedict Cumberbatch, but Misha Collins is not likely considering we had him in 2013.
Q:I recently submitted my name for the Artist Alley wait list and in an attempt to get myself and my schedule organized I was wondering how likely it is a spot will open up and when I can expect to hear back? This will (hopefully!!) be my first time selling at the Con and I want to be prepared! Thanks so much! You guys are awesome!
Unfortunately we can’t predict that, sorry! Your best bet is to check out the Exhibitor/Artist Alley FAQ page and see if your question is answered there. If not, contact info for that team is on the page, so you can talk to them directly! You’re awesome too!
Q:Hi ECCC! I just want to say thank you for having Chad L. Coleman in the 2014 con. I didn't get to meet Emily Kinney cuz I only was able to get tickets for Friday, but Chad was so sweet to me! He was literally one of the nicest guys I've met. Even though it was a quick conversation, he asked things about me and showed a mutual interest. I haven't met many celebs, but he's at the top of my list of the best people I've met. Thank you again and I hope we get more TWD cast at ECCC in 2015! <3
Hi! You’re welcome! We’re glad you had a great experience getting to meet him. :) Who are the top three TWD guests you’d like to meet?
