    Colossus Smashes into Big Wow! ComicFest 2015

    cudmore

    Actor Daniel Cudmore (X-Men, Twilight) appears at Big Wow! ComicFest on Saturday April 18th!

    Born in Vancouver and raised in Squamish, British Columbia, Daniel grew up in an athletic household. Daniel’s breakout role came shortly after he made the transition from college star to actor, when Bryan Singer cast him alongside Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Sir Ian Mckellen, and Halle Berry in the 2003 superhero film X2, as Colossus, the strongest member of the X-Men team. Daniel’s character was brought back in the film’s sequel X-Men: The Last Stand. He has since showcased his extraordinary talents on numerous television shows including “Stargate SG-1,” “Supernatural,” and “Psych.” However, it is Daniel’s role as Felix in the popular Summit Entertainment film franchise The Twilight Saga that has given this actor international recognition.

    Draco Malfoy Apparates into BIG WOW! ComicFest 2015

    draco

    Press Release:

    Big celebrity guest announcement! We are pleased to welcome Tom Felton to Big Wow 2015! Saturday only!

    Tom was born in Epsom, Surrey, to Sharon and Peter Felton. He has been acting since he was eight years old at the suggestion of an actress friend of his family who recognized Felton’s theatrical qualities. Felton met with an agent, and two weeks later, after auditioning with over 400 other children, he landed an international commercial campaign and went abroad to work.

    A talented singer, he started singing in a church choir at the age of seven and has been a member of four choirs at school. He declined an offer to join the Guildford Cathedral Choir. He is a keen sportsman enjoying football (soccer), ice skating, roller blading, basketball, cricket, swimming, and tennis.

    After working on Anna and the King with Jodie Foster, Tom received his big break in Harry Potter (and the Sorcerer’s Stone) as Draco Malfoy, school boy rival to the titular character as played by Daniel Radcliffe. Tom managed to film the part of Draco in all eight Harry Potter movies while also having an active life outside the magical world it created. In between shoots he filmed independent horror movies The Disappeared, Night Wolf, and The Apparition with Twilight’s Ashley Greene. It was directly after completing his filming on Harry Potter that he landed his roles in Rise of the Planet of the Apes and From the Rough. His newest projects are In Secret, and Fangs of Warand.

    In between acting gigs, Tom still manages times with his music. He is one of the founding owners and talent of Six String Productions, a recording company devoted to signing young musical artists overlooked by the major recording industry.

    Guests include: Brent Anderson, Sanya Anwar, Stephen Bissette, Mark Bode, Nick Bradshaw, Tim Bradstreet, Dan Brereton, Danny Bulanadi, Frank Cho, Frank Cirocco, Lela Dowling, Stephen E.
