The Hobbit’s Dean O’Gorman returns to Australia for Oz Comic-Con!

Dean O'Gorman

Dean O’Gorman may as well be an Australian citizen, let’s be real. The NZ born actor who is currently making The Hobbit fans’ hearts melt alongside Aidan Turner as ‘Fili’ has had a long-running connection with us over the pond, having starred in McLeod’s Daughters back in the day, which saw him stationed just outside of Adelaide for much of the filming process. In more recent times however, O’Gorman’s been lapping up the love at Australian pop culture conventions, visiting quite regularly for Supanova and Oz Comic-Con. Only in the country earlier this year for the Adelaide and Perth legs of Oz Comic-Con’s 2014 tour, O’Gorman has been announced to be coming back around for the Melbourne stop next weekend. As with some other Oz Comic-Con guests, Dean will be hosting an exclusive dinner for fans to attend when he’s in town – you can purchase your tix from

Oz Comic-Con Melbourne runs from July 5-6 at the Royal Exhibition Building. Event schedules are now online at!
