Millions of viewers know him as “Doctor Who” in one of the best British sci-fi TV shows of all time and millions more have seen him playing the much loved character of Radagast the Brown in The Hobbit movies, to much acclaim.
We’re sure you’ll agree Sylvester is a fantastic guest to add to the day and he’s looking forward to meeting all his fans!
It’s a thrill that Sophie Aldred will once again be teaming up with Sylvester McCoy at Sci-Fi by the Sea 3.
Sophie played Sylvester McCoy’s assistant Ace in Doctor Who between 1988-9. A streetwise tomboy with a passion for pyrotechnics, Ace was arguably the first time a companion was given an emotional journey as the series developed. She has reprised the role many times since in various Big Finish audio stories.
In 1987, Andrew was hired as the script editor for Doctor Who. Andrew worked on the programme for the next two years. He brought in new writers and took the series in a new creative direction.
In 2014, he began writing comic strip stories for Doctor Who Adventures magazine, including stories for the Eleventh and Twelfth Doctors.
We’re delighted to have Robert Llewellyn, aka Kryten from Red Dwarf attending Sci-Fi by the Sea 3.
Robert started working in television around 1986, started working on Red Dwarf in 1989 and hasn’t looked back, also co-presenting Scrapheap Challenge and the excellent web series Carpool.
Since the re-release of Star Wars in 1997, the phenomenal interest in the character of ‘Boba Fett’ has continued to grow and grow.
Paul Markham has been in the industry for a very long time, appearing in ‘ Superman ‘ II, III and IV, ‘ Supergirl ‘ , ‘Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade ‘ and Tim Burton’s ‘Batman’.
Paul has also worked on one of the most iconic films of all time which is Star Wars Episode VI – Return of the Jedi . He portrayed an Imperial Officer in the film.
Chris Bunn has worked in three James Bond films ( ‘The Spy Who Loved Me‘ , ‘Moonraker ‘ and ‘The Living Daylights‘ ) . Chris also worked in two Superman movies ( Superman I and II ) .
Chris was the original Stormtrooper in ‘Star Wars A New Hope‘ and also played an astronaut in the famous cantina scene in the same film . Chris also went on to work in the sequels ‘The Empire Strikes Back‘ and ‘Return of the Jedi‘ .
Look out for a special announcement from Trev and Simon as we get nearer to the day too!
