Saturday 5th & Sunday 6th May 2018
SPECIAL GUEST ANNOUNCEMENT:
BILLIE PIPER (Doctor Who / Penny Dreadful / Diary Of A Call Girl)
Where on Earth do you start with a bona fide icon such as BILLIE PIPER? Her career has spanned the UK pop charts as the youngest artist ever to enter at No. 1 on the Singles Chart in 1998, and then to the very edges of space as the first Companion of the Doctor in the new era for the long-running science-fiction series, starring as Rose Tyler against Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant in DOCTOR WHO.
Hailing from Swindon UK, Billie first made her debut in 1998 on kids show SCRATCHY & CO. at the age of 15, embarking on an incredible pop career with multiple platinum selling albums and singles across the globe, including ‘Because We Want To’, ‘Honey To The B’ and ‘Girlfriend’.
Piper’s transition into acting began in 2004. She played Rose Tyler, companion to The Doctor from 2005 to 2006,, reprising the role a number of times later in specials. From 2007 until 2011, she starred as the high-flying escort Belle de Jour in the television series SECRET DIARY OF A CALL GIRL. She also starred as Brona Croft/Lily in the Showtime series PENNY DREADFUL.
More recently, Piper has taken to the stage. She has starred in five critically acclaimed plays and picked up numerous Best Actress awards, most notably an Olivier Award for her performance in YERMA which was described as “earth-quaking” by The Guardian and “a generation’s greatest performance” by The Stage. She went on to pick up a total of six Best Actress awards for that one performance, making it one of the most acclaimed and awarded stage performances in British theatre history – and the only female actor to have picked up six out of an available six Best Actress awards for a single performance.
We look forward to meeting Billie at EM-Con Nottingham, as no doubt will her many many fans – expect her table to be packed all weekend and, if a panel is scheduled, that to be a must-attend event.
