Guest Suggestions 2016

Recommended Posts

Might as well get started early! I've always wanted to be the one to start one of the threads :)

Feel free to move this to the 2016 forum once it's in action.

I'll start: (seeing as the con seems to be growing, feel free to put in some big names)!

 

 

  • Any Game of Thrones guests are great, I'll meet any and all announced. It would be fantastic to see returns from Kristian Nairn, Finn Jones, Daniel Portman, Charlotte Hope, and of course the legendary Julian Glover, as well as any others who have been to Glasgow before, I'd be well up for meeting them again.
  • New guests are certainly welcome too, I'd love to see Ian Beattie, Jessica Henwick or any other regulars at Showmasters events come up to Glasgow.
  • Big names would be great, and since we seem to have a bigger audience up here than previous years, is it really out of the question? Rose Leslie, Natalie Dormer, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Sean Bean... It would be a dream come true to see huge guests announced for a Glasgow con.
  • It was great to see Hacksaw and the Million Dollar Man this year, how about some more WWF legends and current superstars? I don't watch wrestling anymore myself, but it would be interesting to meet all these guys I'd watched for years.
  • LOST guests are quite rare at these things, so some of them would be fab.
  • Same goes for Breaking Bad, I wonder why they are so few and far between at cons.
  • Bit of a stretch, but any of the cast of The Breakfast Club would be amazing guests, I've always wanted to meet them. Don't you... forget about me...

 

I'll stop there and report back throughout the year with more suggestions. Let's make this the biggest and best convention Glasgow has ever seen!

Ok here goes, I'll try and keep it realistic.

 

First of all Sam J Jones,Brian Blessed or anybody else from Flash Gordon (My favourite film EVER!!!)

 

More classic WWF era wrestlers would be great (Hacksaw and Ted were amazing guests to talk to)

 

I'm not into thrones or Dr who, but I do love the 80's. Any horror/action stars from this era would be great. Carl Weathers would be epic!

 

Too many to mention at the moment, but I'm sure I'll add to the thread down the road.

I concur about the 80's.

There are so many films/tv shows out there from that era that guests could be plucked from.........Blessed/Weathers would indeed be good additions to see/meet.

Bit of a long shot, but what about the musical comedian Tim Minchin?

I know SM generally don't book comedians, but he'd be great to meet if he was available.

Here's my thoughts on guests :)

 

Cast Members (not sure how doable some of these would be, but just what I'd personally like to see, I understand not to everyone's taste:

Star Trek (Voyager, TNG or Enterprise), I'm a HUGE Star Trek fan & it'd be awesome to meet some of the cast from the series mentioned

The Walking Dead

LOST

Sons of Anarchy

Adventure Time

Sherlock

Fargo

Alien (1-3)

Predator (any cast members for pretty much any of the films)

 

Actors that I'd love to meet (again, I know not to everyone's taste but it is just suggestions based on what I like):

Scott Bakula :wub2:

Jennifer Connelly

Josh Brolin

Jonathan Ke Quan

Kurt Russell (never going to happen but he's awesome)

Joel Edgerton

Mary Elizabeth Winstead

Sigourney Weaver

Dan Aykroyd

Bill Murray

 

Directors:

John Carpenter

Wes Craven

Tim Burton (would certainly never happen but I love him!)

 

In general as with a couple of people so far the 80's was great for movies and the list could go on & on from that period. Horror scene you can almost never go wrong with & this has been mentioned before too.

 

Roll on next year! :coolthumb:

Since it's the 30th anniversary of Highlander next year, Christopher Lambert and Clancy Brown please (x100). Is the only Scottish FCC so only right they come home.

 

Failing that, anyone from GoT, Supernatural, Hannibal or Vikings. Also, Ellen Burstyn and Linda Blair (may as well aim big) and loving the Brian Blessed suggestion...what a freakin' legend!

 

Hope that ain't too greedy!

Brian Blessed would be brilliant! Can imagine he would be great fun & would do a fab talk too which would probably be mobbed!

Just to add to guests that have been missed. It would be great if Anthony Head was invited back
