Iwan Rheon, the actor who played Ramsay Bolton, one of the most villainous characters in Game of Thrones history, will make a guest appearance at the Middle East Film & Comic Con (MEFCC) on 13 April.
As excitement builds ahead of next month’s premier of Game of Thrones Season 8, Rheon will be joined by storyboard artist and original concept designer William Simpson in a meet-and-greet with the region’s huge fan base. 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 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.
