Doctor Who - Past and Future Unite
Here at London Film and Comic Con 2019, we have not one but two past incarnations of The Doctor.
Colin Baker, the sixth actor to play the quirky time traveller, took the reigns from 1983-86. Travelling the universe in his trademark brightly coloured jacket, he fought a myriad of monsters and aliens, including the Daleks and the Cybermen, and lived to tell the tale, eventually being forced to regenerate following a crash landing on a barren planet.
Outside the show, Colin has also appeared in mini-series War and Peace (1972), and several British TV staples, including Casualty, Doctors, The Bill and Hollyoaks.
Sylvester McCoy succeeded Colin as the seventh Doctor from 1987-89. McCoy wore a much more understated suit, topped off with his unmistakeable hat. He also squared up against both the Daleks and Cybermen, and regenerated following his showdown with The Master.
McCoy has also appeared in several TV shows, including The Last Place on Earth (1985), Jackanory, Rab C .Nesbitt and Casualty.
Both Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy are great guests who love meeting their fans. Come along to London Film and Comic Con from the 26th to the 28th July 2019, where you can bag an autograph and a photo with each of them, as well as double photo shoot with Sylvester and Sophie Aldred. Sylvester is appearing Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and Colin will be there on Saturday and Sunday. Catch them while you can!

Damon Salvatore at LFCC!
Here at LFCC 2019 we have an amazing guest for you: Ian Somerhalder. The Vampire Diaries has become one of the most popular vampire shows on TV, and we have one of the Salvatore brothers are gracing us with his presence.
Ian Somerhalder plays Stefan’s older brother Damon Salvatore. During the series, Damon helps his brother to protect Elena, and eventually sires her to save her life. This causes tension as she develops feelings for him, and is unsure if this is because of the sire bond they have. After severing the bond, she reveals that she does indeed choose him over Stefan.
Ian had a successful career in acting before The Vampire Diaries, appearing in Young Americans, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Tell Me You Love Me to name a few. He had a recurring role in Smallville, playing Adam Knight, and also played Boone in popular TV series Lost between 2004 and 2010, a role which arguably focussed the spotlight on Ian as an actor.
Ian is appearing at London Film and Comic Con on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th July 2019. He is a diamond pass guest, with passes for Saturday and Sunday available. Don’t delay, grab yourself a ticket.
