The Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo is quickly coming up at the end of April and a long list of big stars and creators are poised to attend, including none other than Sir Michael Gambon – a.k.a Albus Dumbledore – and Jason Isaacs – a.k.a Lucius Malfoy.

Besides the well-known Harry Potter characters, lead actors in The Walking Dead, Steven Yuen (Glenn) and Alanna Masterson (Tara), Game of Thrones star Finn Jones, and Lucy Lawless – a.k.a. Xena the Warrior Princess – are some of the bigger names in attendance.

The Calgary Expo will run in 2016 from April 28 to May 1 at Stampede Park and celebrate science fiction, comic books, film, television, horror, fantasy, animation, pop culture, and more.

This will be Michael Gambon’s first appearance at a Canadian convention. He is best known for playing Dumbledore from the third movie onwards, but has been a staple in British film and television since the 1960s.
