SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 News) – FanX: Salt Lake Comic Convention dropped a bomb Friday evening when organizers announced U.K. actress Billie Piper will attend the 2019 Spring event.
Piper is akin to sci-fi royalty. The actress is best known for her role on the long-running BBC sci-fi television series ‘Doctor Who’ as fan-favorite companion Rose Tyler, as well as her work on ‘Penny Dreadful’ and ‘Secret Diary of a Call Girl.’
Salt Lake FanX hasn’t yet revealed what Piper’s schedule will be for the April event or which days she’ll be there. It’s the fandom equivalent of throwing a grenade in the room, shutting the door and walking away.
Fans will have a chance to get autographs at the event, but photo-op spots with Piper will be decided by a lottery, which stops accepting entries Wednesday, April 17, 2019 at midnight.
Tickets for the April 19-20, 2019 event are on sale on the FanX website, where you can also find a complete list of guests.
