PotterVerse 2 Guest Announcements: Jon Campling and Trevor Butterfield

Hello “House”mates!

PotterVerse is happy to announce our next group of guests for this year:

Jon Campling played one of the Death Eaters in the two Deathly Hallows films and is also a wand craftsman and wand dueling instructor. Jon will be conducting a number of dueling workshops at the event, and will have many of his wand designs available for sale at the event. Jon will be at the event for all three days.

Our other new guest is Trevor Butterfield. Trevor played many parts in the original Star Wars films (an Imperial Officer and a stormtrooper in The Empire Strikes Back and in Return of the Jedi he portrayed the bounty hunter ‘ Bossk ‘, a stormtrooper, a Calamari warrior, Lieutenant Blount and the Rancor keeper’s assistant Giran), but switched over to doing Special Effects work and contributed to most of the Harry Potter films as a Senior Special Effects Technician. Trevor can give a great deal of insight into what it takes to make the magic happen on film. Trevor will be at the event for all three days.

Both Jon and Trevor join our already announced guests of Dan Fogler (Jacob Kowalski), Miriam Margolyes (Professor Sprout), and Simon Fisher-Becker (The Fat Friar).

We are still working on adding new guests to the event, and hope to announce them soon.

Our full weekend discount price is still in place at $80, and we also have some spaces left in our special Meet and Greet event “The Wizard’s Council”. You can also pre-order our Con T-shirt as well as add on a VIP level to get some fun extra stuff.

GUEST NEWS: Adrian Rawlins cancels, Sean Biggerstaff joins the event!

We are sad to report that Adrian Rawlins has had to cancel his appearance at PotterVerse due to work commitments. He sends his regrets, and wishes he could be there in Baltimore to meet all of you. We wish him all the best and hope we’ll have the chance to work with him in future.

That said, we have begun bringing in new guests to fill in the gaps, and we are very happy to announce the first of these: Sean Biggerstaff, a.k.a. Gryffindor Quiddich Captain Oliver Wood!

We can’t wait to see Sean at the event next month… and we can’t wait to see you, either! Still haven’t gotten your membership? Register now to hang out with us and all your faves from Hogwarts!

MORE GUESTS: Natalia Tena (Nymphadora Tonks) and Devon Murray (Seamus Finnigan)

Hi all! As you can probably tell, PotterVerse is kicking into high gear. You can expect a TON of updates and additions in the coming weeks since we have just finished working on (Re)Generation Who: Baltimore’s Doctor Who Convention, which was our biggest success yet!

I am pleased to welcome Natalia Tena (Nymphadora Tonks) and Devon Murray (Seamus Finnigan) to our PotterVerse family!

They are joining Chris Rankin (Percy Weasley), Miriam Margoyles (Professor Sprout), and Adrian Rawlins (James Potter). Always check our guest page for the most updated list.

But before you ask (because I know some people will), this is not the end of guest announcements.

This is us just getting started. We can’t wait to welcome you to the con this year. We pride ourselves in welcoming families of all shapes, sizes, and genders and truly creating a friendly atmosphere where everyone can have fun, express themselves, and feel welcome. That’s why meeting all of the guests are included in general admission and we have activities and programming for every member of the family – even the little ones! The personal experience you have with us takes a bit of work behind the scenes to set up but we feel it’s worth it and wouldn’t do it any other way! 😀

Thank you so much for your support. Your ticket purchases directly allow us to bring this event to Baltimore and we appreciate you so much!
