'Game of Thrones' actor Daniel Portman to attend Bangalore Comic Con

NEW DELHI: Actor Daniel Portman, who has starred in the HBO series Games of Thrones, will be among those attending the Comic Con India in Bangalore. 


This is for the first time that Comic Con India is bringing in an international actor as a special guest to Bangalore. 


Mark Gatiss, actor, co-creator and executive producer of BBC’s hit series Sherlock attended Mumbai Film and Comic Con 2014 in December. 


Bangalore Comic Con 2015 will be held at White Orchid Convention Centre from 3 to 5 April. 


Portman is a Scottish actor, born in Glasgow. He earned an HNC in acting and performing at Reid Kier College in Paisley, Scotland. His first role was as Paul in the 2010 supernatural thriller film Outcast alongside Game of Thrones' actors James Cosmo and Kate Dickie. Following Outcast he appeared in the Scottish comedy film The Angel's Share


It was in 2011 when it was announced that Portman would be playing Podrick Payne in HBO's adaptation of George R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones. Podrick is the loyal squire to Tyrion Lannister and has appeared in the show since its second season. Portman will be returning to the series' fifth season.


Portman said, “I am very excited to be coming to Bangalore for Bangalore Comic Con in April. I am looking forward to meeting my Indian fans and having a great weekend.”


He will be a part of special sessions and talk about his character in the show and will answer the questions from fans about both previous seasons and the forthcoming season, which premieres a week after the event. Also, he will sign exclusive posters for the fans at the convention.


Comic Con India founder Jatin Varma said, “We wanted to give GOT fans in the city something to look forward to, and Daniel's presence is one of the many things we have planned this year!”


Another main attraction at Bangalore Comic Con 2015 will be Game of Thrones’ special Photo-op Booth. Comic Con India has officially tied up with HBO to bring the Throne replica exclusively at Bangalore Comic Con. There will be a Throne replica at the special photo - op booth where fans and visitors can get their pictures clicked.
