Hot on the heels of their recent announcement of the awesome Kristian ‘Hodor‘ Nairn attending this year’s event, Oz Comic-Con Melbourne are following that up by announcing two more awesome guests: Daniel ‘Podrick Payne’ Portman and Arthur ‘Rory Williams’ Darvill!
Better known for his role as Podrick Payne, loyal squire to both Tyrion Lannister and Brienne of Tarth, the Scottish-born Portman has been a recognisable face on the series since its second season. His appearance at the convention is welcome news for Game of Thrones fans.
And, for three years on Doctor Who, Arthur Darvill brought to life the loveable Rory Williams, a companion to Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor. One of the most well known stars of the long-lived show, Darvill is also a talented musician and stage actor, currently staring in Once on the West End.
Portman, Darvill and Nairn are just three of the guests who will be wowing crowds at Oz Comic-Con Melbourne, with other celebrities attending including television icon Richard Dean Anderson (MacGyver, Stargate SG-1), acclaimed actorTom Skerritt (Alien, Top Gun, Picket Fences) and awarded actress Veronica Cartwright (Alien, Resurrection).
The event will feature celebrity Q&A panels and professional photograph and autographs will be available with all guests, with Portman and Nairn teaming up for a photo option for Game of Thrones die-hards. For those looking for something a little bit special, limited seats are currently available for an exclusive dinner with both Portman and Nairn on July 5.
Being married to Mr. Wow Yoda is pretty awesome, but what is more awesome is that I get to interview him from the comfort of my own couch. For those of you who don’t know, Mr. Wow Yoda is Brian, one of the original Crew members of Nerd Culture Podcast, and one of the biggest nerds I’ve ever met. But he’s a good egg! So, let’s see what makes Mr. Wow Yoda tick!
Me: At what age did you start playing video/computer games?
Brian: Around 3 or 4 years of age.
Me: What video game system do you like best, why?
Brian: I like the computer the best because of variety and prices. The computer is also more powerful!
Me: What makes you Mr. Wow Yoda?
Brian: The name came about when I helped David with his Paladin (making it a more efficient killer!), and other WoW stuff.

Welcome to my Barbarian spec – Bottle Fury
Click here for the spec!
This is the perfect combat medic build for a Barbarian. This build is designed to heal itself, and party members, while constantly dealing a massive amount of damage to enemies. For this to work the Barbarian will need a fairly high critical hit chance but the reward is very well worth it.
