Nathan Fillion is heading to the 2017 Auckland Armageddon Expo

23 Jun 2017

The Armageddon Expo has announced the first special guest that will be attending this year's Auckland event. It is none other than Nathan Fillion who some people will know from the popular Firefly TV show. 

​Fillion will be attending on Saturday and Sunday and there will be limited opportunities for you to get an autograph and photo with the man. Photos will cost you $80 and autographs are slightly cheaper at $70. Demand is expected to be high so no personal messages can be written on autographs.

​Fillion is most famous for playing Malcom Reynolds in the TV show Firefly and the follow-up movie called Serenity. He was most recently cast in the main role in the show called Castle. If you play video games, you may recognise his voice in the likes of Halo: Reach, Halo 5: Guardians and as Cayde-6 in Destiny. Fillion is set to reprise his role as Cayde-6 in the upcoming Destiny 2 video game too.

Next Friday, another special guest will be announced at the event so stay tuned. The Auckland Armageddon Expo takes place at the ASB Showgrounds on October 20th until October 23rd. Nathan Fillion will only be attending on October 21st and October 22nd.
