Ogden UnCon, Northern Utah’s newest pop culture convention, has added Stranger Things and 2019 Hellboy actor David Harbour to the celebrity guest list of its inaugural show on June 7-9, 2019. Ogden UnCon’s entertainment mission is to provide featured guests that have never made previous convention appearances in the state of Utah. Harbour will follow this trend during a one-day photo op and autograph signing event on June 8, exclusively available for convention attendees.
Harbour is an Emmy and Tony-nominated actor, most recognizable for his role as Chief Jim Hopper in the popular Netflix show, Stranger Things. This supernatural period drama premiered in 2016, and the show’s third season is set to stream this summer on July 4, 2019. Harbour will also star in the upcoming reboot film of the Hellboy franchise released by Lionsgate, in theaters April 12, 2019. He recently won the 2018 Critics’ Choice Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.
“Most micro conventions our size don’t book the type of celebrities we have in their first year,” said Russ Adams, Ogden UnCon’s founder who has been featured as a guest himself at 53 conventions after appearing on the hit SyFy TV series, Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge. “We’re a small con doing things in a big way, and we hope that ambition in our first show will create opportunities to bring more stars like Harbour to our city in the future.”
There are 16 celebrities currently announced to visit Utah for the first time to be guests at Ogden UnCon. Several of those names include:
- The world's first AI recognized as a citizen, Sophia the Robot, making her comic con debut.
- Black Sails actors Zach McGowan and Toby Stephens.
- Lost in Space child actor Maxwell Jenkins, appearing with Toby Stephens.
- Saturday Night Live veteran cast member Chris Kattan.
