Fans of Harry Potter and Game of Thrones in Swindon are in for a treat as acting legend David Bradley is coming to town.

He is one of the many guests from the big and small screen who will be taking over the STEAM museum for this year's now-annual Swindon Comic Con in June.

Bradley is best known for playing Hogwarts caretaker ‘Argus Filch’ in the Harry Potter movie series and ‘Walder Frey’ in Game of Thrones.

He'll be joined by Christopher Ryan, known for his role as ‘Mike’ in the 1980s BBC Comedy series The Young Ones. 

For Star Wars fans, Amanda Lawrence, best known for her role as ‘Commander D’Acy’ in The Last Jedi and The Rise of the Skywalker, will be appearing at the event. Hugh Spight, who played ‘Chief Gammorean Guard’ and ‘Prune Face’ in the epic space-opera franchise will also be attending.
