Ascendio is excited to announce that Harry Potter actor and HP convention veteran Chris Rankin will be a special guest at Ascendio 2012. Chris, who plays Percy Weasley in many of the Harry Potter films, including Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows II, has previously attended HPEF’s The Witching Hour and been a special guest at our Azkatraz and Infinitus events, as well as The Leaky Cauldron’s LeakyCon 2011. He also has an extensive theater background, having performed in pantomimes and plays such as Dick Whittington, Jack & the Beanstalk, Hedda Gabler and Salome.
Hugely fascinated by Harry Potter fandom — and welcomed by it — Chris has focused his university thesis on fandom, and is excited to present his work at Ascendio — a Harry Potter actor-special guest first!
Other events featuring Chris will be announced at a later time — but rest assured, Chris will present, do a Q&A, sign Harry Potter DVDs and more!
