【Tokyo Comic Con 2019】First Guests Coming to Japan!
Sebastian Stan, Rupert Grint and Orlando Bloom!!
Tokyo Comic Convention (CEO: Mitsuaki Munegumi) had decided to invite Sebastian Stan, Rupert Grint and Orlando Bloom as the first celebrity guests for “Tokyo Comic Con 2019” which will be held at Makuhari Messe (Mihama-ku, Chiba-shi) for three days from November 22, 2019 to November 24, 2019. There will be photo and autograph sessions.
Sebastian Stan became a world-famous actor since he played the part of Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier from Avengers series.
In addition, there was an announcement that they will be making a spin-off drama, ‘The Falcon and The Winter Soldier’ with Anthony Mackie who played the part of Samuel Wilson/Falcon.
He had been appearing in films ‘ODYSSEY’, ‘I, TONYA’ and many other featured films and these works made him enter the spotlight.
Last year we planned to invite him for “Tokyo Comic Con 2018” but he could not make it since he had his schedule conflict with his new film shooting. Thus, it is his very first visit to Japan.
Rupert Grint is another world-famous guest coming to Japan, who played part of Ron Weasley from Harry Potter series.
Message from Sebastian Stan
・Hello everyone, finally I got out of detention (set of the film). I am looking forward to seeing you. It is so soon so please wait a little more.
He had played the role for about 10 years from the first Harry Potter film ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’ to the 8thand the last film ’Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (part 2)’.
Last year, the drama which was directed by him called ‘Snatch’ was aired and he played the leading role. He is known as Japan-lover and has been visiting the country for few times.
Orlando Bloom starred as the elf character Legolas in “The Lord or the Rings”, and has since made a great impact in the cinemas. “Pirates of the Caribbean” was also super big hit, scaling the actor’s fame to be one of the top Hollywood superstars.
It will be his first to join Tokyo Comic Con but the last time Bloom came to Japan, the airport was filled with people, proving how popular this actor is in Japan.
