Con of Thrones announced today another addition to the special guest line-up for 2020:  Games of Thrones actor Sam Coleman (Young Hodor)! Coleman will appear at Con of Thrones on Friday, July 17, and Saturday, July 18. This is a welcome return, as the actor was a favorite at past cons. Tickets for Con of Thrones, the premier convention for fans of Game of Thrones, A Song of Ice and Fire, and the epic worlds of fantasy author George R. R. Martin, are available for purchase now at conofthrones.net/register.

Autograph and photograph experiences with Coleman are available for purchase now. Autographs are $10 and photographs are $20. Autograph and photograph experiences are also available with Game of Thrones actor Anton Lesser (Qyburn). Con of Thrones will take place in Orlando, Florida, at the Orange County Convention Center July 17–19, 2020.

As in past years, Con of Thrones 2020 will host in-depth discussions about both the television and book series, Special Guest Spotlight interviews, live recordings of fan-favorite podcasts, and much more. Con of Thrones is produced by Mischief Management; Watchers on the Wall serves as the programming partner for the convention, and we’re excited to help bring a fun variety of panels and events to fans. We’ll be opening up for panel submissions very soon!

Previous guests include Thrones stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Joe Dempsie (Gendry), Jerome Flynn (Bronn), Hannah Murray (Gilly), Iwan Rheon (Ramsay Bolton), Miltos Yerolemou (Syrio Forel), Sibel Kekilli (Shae), Kate Dickie (Lysa Arryn), Esmé Bianco (Ros), Kerry Ingram (Shireen Baratheon), Aimee Richardson (Myrcella Baratheon), and Emmy Award-winning Sound Designer Paula Fairfield.

Stay tuned for updates and we’ll see you in Orlando!

      Hodor! Um,, I mean, too soon?

      Thats cool he will be there!

      Yes, it will!
      In addition to his star turn as young Hodor, Sam Coleman has been a devoted GoT fan. (His clever twitter posts featured prominently in Axey’s “Storify” compilations.)

      He will forever be a part of one of the most heartbreaking endings of any episode.

      Hold the door! Hold the door! Hold the door! Hol’ the door… Hol door… Ho door… Ho Dor… Hodor…” 😢

      P.S. Nice going, Bran.
      Because you got bored and wanted to go joyriding, young Wylis’s brain got fried, while Hodor got torn to shreds by zombies so you could escape. And for what, in the long run? So you could become king?

      He didn’t know any of that would happen.
      Not sure why people often assume Bran can see the future. I thought it was just the past, and via warging, the present elsewhere.

    3. Grandmaester Flash,

      I think Bran foresaw a dragon over KL, although it was never made clear if that was a vision of the past or future.

      I don’t think the show really addressed it one way or the other, however, Bran did seem to know how things would play out, which, to me, means he can see into the future.

      He knew to give the dagger to Arya, though this could be explained by saying that he simply wanted to give an assassin a legit weapon, or maybe he thought Arya would kill Cersei with the dagger that was used to attempt to kill Bran in season 1…poetic justice, etc…

      He also seemed to already know that he would asked to become king.

      Hard to say for sure whether Bran can see the future or not. The show kept it deliberately vague, but the fact that Bran seemed to know how all of this would play out, to me, means he can see into the future in some way.

    4. Nijaguna Mrudul,

      I care and apparently you do too! But at least admit it instead of attacking other people, because that’s really sad and stupid to waste your time on attacking other people’s hobby’s. If attacking other people is your hobby, I really feel sorry for you.

    5. Much like some other less known supporting actors who only appeared in a few episodes I genuinely feel Sam Coleman is one of us i.e. a full on fan of the show. I’m sure he’ll add great insight into this con.
