Fan Expo Canada 2016 in Toronto is particularly special because of the eyebrow raising amount of celebrities appearing. It’s really next level, folks. Nerds, geeks and freaks unite for a weekend of autographs, workshops, screenings and many firs and last ever appearances from some super famous sci-fi/fantasy/horror heroes.
Not to diminish the hundreds of other cool things happening at the meet-up (speed dating, special effects workshop, film festivals, panel discussions, fashion shows), but here are my picks for what not to miss at the 2016 Fan Expo in Toronto.
Q&A with The Exorcist’s Linda Blair (September 1, 730p.m.)
She walked backwards up the stairs and projectile vomited all over our hearts many years ago, but the Exorcist star (who won the Golden Globe for her role?!) lives on to tell the tale at this exclusive Q&A.
Autograph session with Adam West and Burt Ward (September 2, 11a.m.)
The original dynamic duo! 1960s Batman and Robin appear together for an autograph session and love-in. This will be their last appearance together, ever.
Workshop: Learn to speak Klingon (September 2, 11:30a.m.)
Doctor Marc Okrand is the linguist who actually created the Klingon language! He also wrote the The Klingon Dictionary, and he’ll be in attendance for a lesson.
