The celebrity line-up at this year’s Middle East Film & Comic Con (MEFCC) just got a little more sinister. Actor Giancarlo Esposito, best known as the chilling villain Gus from the award-winning show Breaking Bad, is making his way to the April 3-5 event at the Dubai World Trade Centre to meet his fans.
Esposito joins a number of celebrity guests, including Seth Green, Tony Jaa, Michael Jai White, Sylvester McCoy, Christopher Sabat and Max Landin who will be conducting several panel discussions throughout the weekend. A complete schedule of the panel discussions and workshops is available through the event’s official website mefcc.com.
Attendees will also be able to buy autograph and photo coupons, which they can cash in for a signature from or a picture with their favourite guest. A schedule of celebrity signings has yet to be posted.
