Heroes and Legends returns to Belfast in February – first guests announced!

December 22nd, 2012 by Owen Quinn Comments

Heroes and Legends, Northern Ireland’s first comic con, is entering its second year, bigger and better than ever, with more sets and characters and the first guests having been confirmed.

First up is Kai Owens from Torchwood. Kai plays Gwen Cooper’s husband Rhys and is a huge fan favourite. He has featured in every series so far. Originally he was supposed to be killed off at the end of season one until Russell T Davies had a change of heart. Rhys has been the heart of the show, the one that represents the ordinary world in the face of alien invasion.

Next is Martine Beswicke, a Bond girl who has appeared in two movies; From Russia with Love and Thunderball. She follows Caroline Munro from last year and is very welcome.

And finally from the world of Harry Potter comes Percy Weasley himself Chris Rankin. He will fit nicely into the wonderful sets that will be at the show.

We here at FTN HQ just went into super excitement mode and there are still more announcements to come.

Heroes and Legends takes place on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th February at the W5 in 2013.

Husband, dad and Ireland's hardest working author, Owen Quinn is currently knee deep in The Time Warriors, arguably the biggest sci-fi epic ever to come out of Ireland. He has an unhealthy interest in Doctor Who, classic TV and Star Wars, he also hangs around with the Emerald Garrison far toooo much. Is it any wonder he fits in at FTN so well? Find Owen at the
