FAN EXPO Dallas Announces Seven New Guests


Happy February, everyone! FAN EXPO Dallas certainly did their part to get the month off to a strong start. Announcing seven new guests whose credits range from Marvel to Harry Potter to The Addams Family.

Kicking it off is Sean Gunn, who you might know from Guardians of the Galaxy or one of his many collaborations with his, perhaps better known, brother James Gunn. Gunn is set to appear in Dallas on Saturday and Sunday, with photo ops available for $60 and autographs for $45.

Kingpin himself, Vincent D’Onofrio, also joined the guest list, bringing another Marvel name to the table. Although you may also know him from his many other notable roles, ranging from the villain in Men In Black (1997) to 10 years on Law and Order: Criminal Intent. D’Onofrio will be at FAN EXPO Dallas on Saturday only, with photo ops available for $80, while autograph options are yet to be listed.

The next guest is a bit of a departure from superheroes, although the woman who played Ginny Weasley certainly should not be underestimated. Bonnie Wright is set to bring some magic to Dallas when she appears on Saturday and Sunday, with photo ops available for $80 and autographs for $60.

Rounding out the major film series guests, we have a new face for conventions: Young Leia herself, Vivien Lyra Blair. The 10-year-old actress and producer already has three projects under her belt! Although it was her spot on Obi-Wan Kenobi last year that really dropped her into the spotlight. Blair will appear at the convention on Saturday and Sunday, offering photo ops for $70 and autographs for $50.

To ensure the group is well-rounded, the convention also added the multi-talented Peter Weller. A film and stage actor, television director, and art historian, Weller has appeared in over 70 films and television series! You might know him from his role as the title character in RoboCop and its sequel RoboCop 2, or his guest spots on popular shows like Dexter (season 5) or Sons of Anarchy (season 6). Weller will appear all three days, with photo ops available for $70, while autograph options are yet to be listed.

Ay-y-y-y! The Fonz is on his way. The iconic actor, producer, and director Henry Winkler will attend FAN EXPO Dallas on Saturday and Sunday this year. Whether you know him from Happy Days, Arrested Development, or one of his many other projects, he will not be one to miss. You’ll be able to grab an autograph or photo op with him at his table for $60 or a professional photo op for $80.

Last but most assuredly not least, Golden Globe®, SAG®, and Emmy® nominee Christina Ricci will grace FAN EXPO Dallas with her presence this year. The beloved actor has appeared in everything from The Addams Family to Speed Racer to Netflix’s hit show, Wednesday. Plus, she has appeared on and off-Broadway and is the National Spokesperson for the largest anti-sexual assault organization in America (RAINN). Ricci will be in Dallas on Saturday and Sunday, with photo ops available for $80 and autographs for $60.

FAN EXPO Dallas will land at the Kay Baily Hutchinson Convention Center in downtown Dallas on June 9-11, 2023. These great guests join the already-announced cast members of The Office, Joseph Quinn, and Steve Burns, in the first round of guests for 2023.

LeeAnn is children's librarian who joined Nerds and Beyond in 2020 as a way to stretch her writing skills and connect with others who have the same pop culture passions as she does. She loves music, reading (obviously), and any TV show that can grab and hold her attention. Currently some of her favorite things to nerd out over include Supernatural, Prodigal Son, Louden Swain and Percy Jackson (books, theater, or upcoming show - lets leave the movies out of it).
