This expo will take place over the weekend, April 26-28th in Calgary, AB at the BMO Centre.

Cary Elwes Joins Calgary Expo

 

If you thought Gillian Anderson, Robert Patrick and Mitch Pileggi were enough to create an X-Files reunion at Calgary Expo this coming spring, think again. One more X-Files alumni has beed added to the already amazing line-up of guests at this fast-growing con, Cary Elwes, AKA Asistant Director Brad Follmer.

Yes, yes, some of us may have hated him a little (maybe a lot; maybe he got in the way of your ship), but he redeems himself and helps get things right in the end. You might also recognize Cary Elwes from his roles in The Princess Bride and the Saw movies.

The Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo will take place in Calgary, AB April 26-28. Check out their website for more details on the Expo.
