In just two short days, October 17 – 19th, 2014, in Atlanta, Georgia, Walker Stalker Con will begin at the Atlanta Convention Center. The excitement being generated by the fans about this show is simply electrifying with the recent success of The Walking Dead’s season 5 premiere episode “No Sanctuary”, which was viewed by over 17 million viewers.
With over 40 actors from The Walking Dead alone, as well as other fan favorite actors from television and movies such as Guardians of the Galaxy, Day of the Dead, Game of Thrones, the Vampire Diaries, Z Nation, Under the Dome, Face Off, Comic Book Men and Resurrection, Walker Stalker Con is giving fans of different shows and genres the chance to get their geek on!
Here is a list of just some of The Walking Dead actors who will be in attendance: Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Michael Rooker, Chad Coleman, Josh McDermitt, Emily Kinney, Danai Gurira, Chandler Riggs, Sonequa Martin-Green, Denise Crosby, Greg Nicotero, Steven Yeun, Michael Cudlitz, Laurie Holden, Scott Wilson, IronE Singleton, among many others.
Walker Stalker Con kicks off on Friday, October 17th, at 12:00 p.m., with the exhibit floor open all three days, which will feature games, toys, comics, and a slew of other memorabilia for true fans of zombie, horror, and science fiction.
The convention even has special events that any Walking Dead fan would simply not be able to resist such as:
On Thursday October 16th, Atlanta Movie tours will host a guided tour of Walking Dead filming locations by none other than Hershel’s daughter Emily Kinney (Beth Green) and those lucky enough to go on this tour will hear stories & anecdotes from Emily about her time filming on America’s number one horror show.
IronE Singleton will be performing his one man show, “Blindsided by the Walking Dead” on Friday, October 17th at 8:00 p.m.
Likewise on Saturday, October 18th at 7:00 p.m., a special VIP Meet & Greet with celebrities will be held for VIP ticket holders only and this is one event any fan would give a finger or two just to attend.
Then again on Saturday, October 18th at 9:00 p.m., Emily Kinney will be returning to Atlanta to perform a special concert for her fans.
As if all of these events were not enough, Saturday, October 18th has one more planned event at 9:30 p.m., the infamous “Zombie Bash”, which is a night of dressing up, contests and meeting & mingling with the celebrity guests.
