Oh, Doctor! Matt Smith, Karen Gillan To Attend Wizard World Chicago Comic Con
Matt Smith, who recently completed an acclaimed four-year run as the 11th incarnation of the Doctor in the landmark British television series “Doctor Who,” and Karen Gillan, who portrayed “Amy Pond,” will appear at Wizard World Chicago Comic Con this month! Smith will attend on Saturday and Sunday, August 23-24, while Gillan is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday morning (paid dual panel only).
Smith began his acting career on stage, appearing in various popular London theatrical performances before landing the coveted role in “Doctor Who” in 2010.
The former model Gillan appeared in Series 5-7, beginning in 2010, as the new companion to the eleventh Doctor. She portrays the mercenary "Nebula" in the blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy, which opened to rave reviews and box office success last weekend.
Both will greet fans, sign autographs and pose for solo and dual photo ops during the event at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center. They will also host a special 60-minute interactive Q&A session on Sunday at 10 a.m. at the Rosemont Theatre (5400 N. River Road), for which a separate admission is required.
