Well it looks like just about the entire population of Mystic Falls is coming to Atlanta!
Eyecon: Vampire Diaries, the Orlando-based fan convention for the popular CW series, has announced a few new guests that will appear at the October convention, scheduled for the weekend before Halloween at the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel .
Ian Somerhalder, who plays the older Salvatore brother Damon, has been confirmed to appear at the convention on Saturday, October 29. His appearance coincides with the first ever Ian Somerhalder Foundation event, “Empoweresqe“, which according to the website, seeks to “unite empowered women who will forever change the world”.
Joseph Morgan, who joined the cast in Season 2 as the much feared vampire/werewolf hybrid Klaus, has also been confirmed to appear. Fans of the show will remember that Klaus is the vampire who has been hunting for Katherine for centuries, and has now seemingly gained control over Stefan in exchange for saving Damon’s life. Morgan’s onscreen brother, Joseph Gillies, was confirmed to appear at the convention in early June.
Gino Pesi, who played Klaus’s loyal warlock Maddox, has also been added to the guest list.
Jeremy (Stephen R. McQueen) will have plenty of ladies to keep him company during the convention! In addition to Katerina Graham (who plays Jeremy’s current love interest Bonnie), Kayla Ewell and Malese Jow – who play ex-girlfriends Vicki Donovan and Anna, respectively – have been added to the guest list. Both women, who were killed off towards the end of the premier season of the show, shocked viewers (and Jeremy too!) by re-appearing on the show during the finale for season two.
The complete guest list is as follows: Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev, Stephen R. McQueen, Katerina Graham, Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gillies, Gino Pesi, Bryton James, Kayla Ewell and Malese Jow.
Ticket prices and sales for Eyecon: Vampire Diaries 2 are available on the website at this link. “The Vampire Diaries” will return for season 3 at 8pm on September 15.
Eyecon: Vampire Diaries 2 will be held in Downtown Atlanta the weekend of Oct 28-30 at the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel. Events will include a Celebrity Q&A, photo-op and autograph sessions, a Celebrity Banquet, a 60s themed dance (similar to the one in the season 2 episode “The Last Dance”), and a Mystic Falls Halloween party. There will also be fan panels, a dealer/vendor room, and a concert by musical guests The Nova Echo.
