In an unexpected turn of events just days before the expo, Heroes actress Hayden Pannettiere who is currently appearing in the new ABC series Nashville as teen singing sensation ‘Juliette Barnes’, has had to cancel her appearance due to her TV show re-scheduling. Much as she tried to make it down here, Hayden’s producers couldn’t let her head off to Australia for our two week tour of Sydney and Perth.
However, another young pop culture luminary has stepped into Supanova’s line up: Alfie Allen, who stars in the outrageously popular series Game of Thrones. Adapted from the novels by George R.R. Martin, the series follows the machinations and power struggles of a number of family dynasties in the fictional medieval land of Westeros. Alfie plays ‘Theon Greyjoy’, a complex and challenging role for the talented actor. The affable 25-year-old Londoner courageously brings some humanity to a problematic character.
Supanova cannot thank Alfie enough for the supremely quick call to action so as to keep 10thAnniversary celebrations on track, and we really do hope to see Hayden attend sooner than later in the near future.
