Australia has had a long standing love affair with Doctor Who and thanks to Oz Comic Con we’ll get the opportunity to meet one of its most popular companions. Jenna Coleman best known as Clara Oswald aka the Impossible Girl will be heading down under and appearing at OzCC’s Brisbane (23-24th Sept) and Sydney (30th Sep – 1st Oct) events.
Coleman debuted on television screens in the British soap opera Emmerdale and has starred in a number of other television projects as recurring characters up until her big break on Doctor Who as the feisty teacher Clara Oswald who happens to rescue The Doctor (both the Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi versions) on several separate occasions across his timeline. At the moment though she is currently starring in the series Victoria playing the titular character Queen Victoria and her early life and rise to power as the British monarch, which can be seen on BBC First on Foxtel.
Coleman joins already announced guests; Jason Momoa (Aquaman , Game of Thrones), Matt Davis and Michael Malarkey (both from The Vampire Diaries), an Bohen (Teen Wolf), David Giuntoli and Bitsie Tulloch (both from Grimm), Chad Lindberg (Supernatural in Sydney only) and voice actors Christie Romano (Kim Possible), Mark Meer (Mass Effect).
Coinciding with this announcement Oz Comic Con have also opened up their online token sales for fans wishing to pre-purchase their photograph and autograph tokens prior to the events. This is the perfect way to beat the hectic onsite queues and ensure you don’t miss out on getting that treasured memento signed or a meet and greet with your favourite star.
