JEDDAH: Some of Hollywood’s leading stars will visit Dubai for the Middle East Film and Comic Con (MEFCC), a pop culture festival to be held at the Dubai World Trade Center from April 5-7.
Heading the list is Kristian Nairn, a Northern Irish actor and DJ best known for his role in the HBO fantasy series “Game of Thrones.”
Nairn’s portrayal of the fan-favorite Hodor made him a household name and launched thousands of memes, turning him into an Internet phenomenon.
Joining him at the event will be American actress Natalia Dyer, known for her role as Nancy Wheeler in the award-winning Netflix science-fiction drama series “Stranger Things.”
Dyer’s latest film was “After Darkness” and she appears in the upcoming film “Mountain Rest.”
Another big name to confirm her presence at the event is Scottish actress Karen Gillan, best known for playing Amy Pond in the hit British sci-fi series “Doctor Who.”
Her latest film, “Jumanji,” smashed box-office records and has already sold 1.4 million tickets in the Middle East.
She is currently filming for “Avengers: Infinity War.”
Other icons coming to the city include New Zealand actor Karl Urban, “Power Rangers” star Jason David Frank, “Resurrection” actor Christian Howard and comic artist Adam Kubert.
Netflix has confirmed it will be making its MEFCC debut with a stand at this year’s show.
