Denver Comic Con Adds The Walking Dead Guests

04/25/12 - Denver CO - Denver Comic Con goes six feet under to unearth TV’s hottest stars. The locally- powered organization just announced the addition of three celebrities from AMC’s The Walking Dead to their already smoking hot guest list.

Lauren Cohan (Maggie Greene), Steven Yeun (Glenn), and Chandler Riggs (Carl Grimes) will take over the Mile High City months after the shocking finale of their 2nd chart-busting season. And the Rocky Mountain region couldn’t be happier.

The demand and excitement for Denver’s first Comic Con, taking place Father’s Day weekend, June 15th-17th, 2012, has been so great that the organizers were recently encouraged to move up within the Colorado Convention Center. Originally positioned in the smaller Mile High Ballroom the event will move to Hall A upstairs with room to stretch out with over 100,000 square feet. Dr. Christina Angel (Co-Convention Director) explains: "We planned on the smaller space for our first year, but the response has been so overwhelming - from vendors, dealers, artists and attendees - that we quickly outgrew that space. I should have known this would happen; Denver has such an amazing and diverse population of active and enthusiastic people, and we're so proud to call it our home. After walking the sprawling space, I think everyone is going to be as excited as we are to give Denver the pop culture experience it so richly deserves."

Lauren Cohan and Steven Yeun are the perfect pairing to appear together at the inaugural event as they play opposite each other as Maggie and Glenn, the budding romance that is contrasted against the apocalyptic world of The Walking Dead.

Cohan, known as the fierce beautiful tomboy, Maggie Green, is no stranger to TV and film. She has just signed on for season 3 of The Walking Dead and has had pivotal guest star arcs on NBC’s fan-favorite Chuck and the CW hit The Vampire Diaries. On the big screen, Cohan has appeared opposite Heath Ledger in Casanova, starred in Van Wilder2: The Rise of Taj and appeared in the ironically-named Death Race prequel Death Race 2. Cohan’s other television credits include a guest spot on ABC’s Modern Family and a series regular role on the CW’s Supernatural.

Yeun, who plays the very popular and ever reliable Glenn, got his start in the Chicago Improv scene. And it wasn’t long before he had a cameo in the critically-acclaimed and top rated sitcom, The Big Bang Theory, as Sheldon’s former roommate. He has also appeared in Law and Order as well as several short films.

Chandler Riggs plays the youngest lead role, Carl Grimes, son of Rick and Lori who is the inquisitive boy struggling to understand the new world into which he has been thrust. The ten-year-old Riggs has several commercial credits. He appeared in the Lifetime Movie The Wronged Man and had his feature film debut in the Sony Pictures Classics film Get Low.

The Denver Comic Con and Literary Conference is set to take place on Father’s Day weekend, June 13th-17th.
