MCM COMIC CON – BIRMINGHAM 2018
The National Exhibition Centre (NEC), Birmingham
Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th March 2018
SPECIAL GUEST ANNOUNCEMENT:
BRIANNA HILDEBRAND (Deadpool / Tragedy Girls / The Exorcist)
BRIANNA HILDEBRAND is an American actress, hailing from College Station, Texas – I know, right, I thought there was a European / Mediterranean air about her, too, but hey, whaddayaknow, right? – that first made an impression in the web series ANNIE UNDOCUMENTED (created by Daniel Hsia, Elaine Low and Brian Yang and named best web series at the 2014 New York TV Festival, fact fans). But that’s not why she’s known to the wider world and not why she’s been flown over to the UK.
DEADPOOL! Deadpool! Deadpool, Deadpool, Deadpool, Deadily Dead Dead-flippin’-pool. Yup, that dude.
After a run of small but critically acclaimed films and shorts – PRIZM and THE VOICE INSIDE (2015, the latter of which she also produced), and FIRST GIRL I LOVED, Brianna caught the attention of director Tim Miller, who cast her as the superhero Negasonic Teenage Warhead in the film DEADPOOL, opposite that man Ryan Reynolds. The character made such an impression that she will be returning for the yet-to-be-titled-it-surely-won’t-be-boringly-called DEADPOOL 2.
In July 2017, Hildebrand was added to the main cast for season two of THE EXORCIST, and in August of last year, audiences were able to see Hildebrand really get under the skin of a views-obsessed teen blogger, willing to commit murder to ramp up those metrics, in the brilliantly dark (and AEISD-highly recommended) TRAGEDY GIRLS.
However, her DEADPOOL experience will be the main draw and the topic of most of the talk of the weekend of MCM Comic Con Birmingham, this March – there’s also going to be photo opportunities available and, from all accounts we’ve heard, she’s a sweetheart.
