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.
