As Amsterdam gets ready for its second annual edition of Comic Con, another big name has been added to the list of stars attending the convention.
Local star Carice van Houten, known to the international public on account of her role as Melisandre in the hugely successful Game of Thrones series, will be attending the Amsterdam RAI-based event on Saturday the 2nd of September.
Besides her work in Game of Thrones, movie followers will also recognize her due to her credits in movies like Valkyrie (starring alongside Tom Cruise), the Jesse Owens biopic Race and the Julian Assange-inpired thriller The Fifth Estate. Prior to her breakthrough in Hollywood, Carice van Houten also starred in numerous Dutch language films – ensuring that her presence will definitely be a crowd favorite this year in Amsterdam.
Other details regarding the program, including the presence of comic artists, panels and a wide range of activities, are regularly updated on the official website: http://www.comiccon-europe.com/en/amsterdam/
