SANDY — At a press event Wednesday morning at Jordan Commons, voice actor and FanX audience favorite Jess Harnell announced 18 new guests for this fall’s FanX Fall Salt Lake Comic Convention.
The lineup for the popular comic convention, which will be held at the Salt Palace Convention Center Sept. 5-7, is as varied as Harnell’s character repertoire.
“24’s” Jack Bauer, otherwise known as actor Kiefer Sutherland led the list, along with actress Christina Ricci and Swedish actor Dolph Lundgren, who played Rocky’s Russian nemesis, Ivan Drago, in “Rocky IV” and “Creed II.” There is also someone coming who Utah fans have meet before: Canadian actress Megan Follows, best-known for playing Anne Shirley in the popular ’80s miniseries “Anne of Green Gables” and “Anne of Green Gables: The Sequel.” Back in 1999, she was in Utah to perform with The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square for its annual Christmas concert.
According to FanX co-founder Dan Farr, the Salt Lake comic convention is able to routinely bring in high-profile celebrity guests mainly because of its fans.
