‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Lord of the Rings’ actors added to Tampa Bay Comic Con

The Tampa Bay Comic Con has capped off its celebrity guest list with a pair of actors from the world of fantasy.

John Rhys-Davies, best known as the ax-wielding dwarf warrior Gimli in the “Lord of the Rings” films, and Pedro Pascal, who played Oberyn Martell on the HBO series “Game of Thrones,” will be among the mutants, zombie hunters and superheroes visiting Tampa this summer to meet fans and take part in panels at the convention from Aug. 1 to 3.

Others added to the lineup include Kyla Kenedy (Mika on “The Walking Dead”) and Daniel Cudmore (Colossus in “X-Men: Days of Future Past”).

Previously announced Comic Con guests include Evan Peters, who plays Quiksilver in “X-Men: Days of Future Past” and is a regular on FX’s “American Horror Story,” Richard Madden, who played Robb Stark on HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” Caity Lotz (“Arrow”), and Brighton Sharbino (“The Walking Dead”).

Photos and autographs with the actors will range from $30 to $40 each.

Tampa Bay Comic Con drew close to 20,000 visitors in 2013, the first year it moved from a smaller venue into a 75,000-square-foot space in the convention center.

Single-day tickets for this year’s convention are $20. A pass for all three days is $45. Tickets are on sale now through tampabaycomiccon.com.
