Walker Stalker Con London - Day Two
Olympia London was the venue for the UK’s first Walker Stalker Con. The two day event focusing on the Worldwide smash TV show and comic - The Walking Dead had previously offered fans around the US the chance to get up close and personal with their favourite cast members, with their British debut bringing Dead devotees out in droves.
Sunday offered the same opportunities as Day One, as far as signings and photo ops go, but the addition of Andrew Lincoln had fans all a flutter, with his lunchtime stint with Norman Reedus, the main event of the day.
Early risers were treated to an opening panel from Husband and Wife team - Sonequa Martin -Green and Kenric Green, followed by TWD legend, The Governor himself - David Morrissey.
There wasn't an empty seat in the house for Andrew and Norman's appearance, with a lot of hilarity ensuing, especially during fan's questions, with Andrew meeting someone with just a bit too much information, and one girl's romantic advances causing Norman to "Drop the mic"!
The Weekend drew to a close with trio of panels focusing on TV's Breaking Bad, with RJ Mitte and Giancarlo Esposito, two of TWD's newest characters - Alexandra Breckenridge and Ross Marquand and Cult movie The Boondocks Saints, featuring Sean Patrick Flanery and David Della Rocco.
I'm a big "Bad" fan so really enjoyed RJ and Giancarlo, and it was nice to see a smiling Alexandra, last seen in a gore covered poncho.
I found the "Saints" panel a lot of fun too, even though I haven't seen the movie's, as Sean is natural raconteur, with David also offering a few droll comments along the way. It was a perfect end to the Weekend, with the films now on my "must view" list.
London's first Walker Stalker Con was a rewarding experience, so hopefully they'll be back in 2016...
