Sir Patrick Stewart Is Beaming Down to Salt Lake Comic Con FanX

Patrick Stewart, the actor best known for his role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard on Star Trek: The Next Generation was known for leading the Starship Enterprise to the final frontier. Now, he’s the final piece of the puzzle in a star-studded cast at Salt Lake Comic Con on April 17-19, 2014 at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. Stewart will be appearing on Saturday, April 19, 2014.

In addition to his role as Picard, Stewart is also known for his roles as Professor Charles Xavier in the X-Men film series and his stage roles with the Royal Shakespeare Company. X-Men: Days of the Future Past, hits theatres in May and is one of the most anticipated films of the year. In 1992 TV Guide named Stewart television’s sexiest man and in 1993 named him the best dramatic television actor of the 1980’s.

“This is a huge win for our fans as we’ve been working for a long time to bring Patrick Stewart to Salt Lake Comic Con FanX,” said Dan Farr, Show Producer. “Patrick’s popularity in Star Trek and X-Men have made him so prevalent amongst Comic Con fans that adding him to an already impressive celebrity lineup at FanX will make this an epic event that nobody will want to miss.”

“We listened to our fans and their requests for Patrick Stewart at FanX,” said Bryan Brandenburg, Salt Lake Comic Con Co-founder and VP of Marketing. “We’re glad we can give them what they want and know that this could be a once in a lifetime opportunity for many.”

Salt Lake Comic Con FanX is expected to break the previous record for largest convention ever in the state of Utah that was set last September with the inaugural Comic Con. Salt Lake Comic Con 2013 was also the largest first year Comic Con in North American history. Show organizers are anticipating more than 100,000 attendees at FanX and have doubled the floor space to accommodate the demand. FanX includes cast members from Star Trek, Star Wars, Walking Dead, Firefly, X-Men, Star Wars, Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica and Power Rangers to comic book artists and authors from both Marvel and DC Comics.

    I can’t Waite to meet him tomarrow he is one of my faves would be great to get a group photo with the whole cast

    Cannot believe the Patrick Stewart panel is at the same time as the Nathan Fillions photo op!!!! So frustrating. I already purchased the photo op but an dying to see Sir Patrick’s panel! Why put the two biggest celebrities competing with each other!

  12. Salt Lake Comic Con says:

    Sorry for any inconvenience, we had to squeeze Patrick Stewart into any slot available because he was such a late confirmed guest.

  13. Sonia says:

    It’s not just an “inconvenience”. You need to offer refunds for the photo op to people who want them. Not really brilliant to schedule the BIGGEST guest at the last minute against the Nathan Fillion photo op, considering their fan bases tend to be the same people.

  14. Salt Lake Comic Con says:

    He will have a panel at 5:15 in the south ballroom. To see the full FanX schedule quick and easy, download out Salt Lake Comic Con app.

  15. Austin Thorpe says:

    Will he be available for autographs prior to the 5:15pm panel or after the 6:15pm photo op session?

  16. Salt Lake Comic Con says:

    We do not know his schedule for autographs, but he will be signing them throughout the day at his booth on Celebrity Row.

  17. Salt Lake Comic Con says:

    We believe he will be signing autographs at that time. We do not have a set autograph schedule for any guest. Please check out his booth on Celebrity Row.
