The ExCel Exhibition Centre, London
Friday 25th – Sunday 27th May 2018
SPECIAL GUEST ANNOUNCEMENT:
TARYN MANNING (Sons Of Anarchy / The Shield / Orange Is The New Black)
TARYN MANNING was born in Falls Church, Virginia, to Bill Manning, a musician, and his wife Sharyn. At two months old, Manning’s parents separated, and she moved with her mother and brother to Tucson, Arizona, where she was raised. Manning was active in dance, karate, and acting as a child. At age twelve, her family moved to California.
She landed her first major role in 2001 as “Maddy” in CRAZY/BEAUTIFUL (2001). Her breakthrough role was “Nola”, a prostitute in Memphis, Tennessee, in HUSTLE AND FLOW (2005) and was nominated by the Washington D.C. Area Film Critics Association Awards for Best Breakthrough Performance. The film also received a SAG award nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Cast.
She has worked on the CBS series HAWAII FIVE-0 (2010) and the FX series SONS OF ANARCHY (2008). Her feature credits include LOVE RANCH (2010), COLD MOUNTAIN (2003), 8 MILE (2002), A LOT LIKE LOVE (2005), WHITE OLEANDER (2002) and CROSSROADS (2002).
She is best known to today’s audiences as a series regular on the hit Netflix series, ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK (2013) in the role of Tiffany “Pennsatucky” Doggett. In addition to acting, Manning is also a fashion designer, singer-songwriter and the vocalist for electronic duo Boomkat; she is also co-owner of the clothing brand “Born Uniqorn”. Talk about keeping oneself busy!
Manning has built up quite the fan base through powerful, magnetic and distinctive characters: it’s safe to say that she will be quite the draw throughout the entire weekend of MCM Comic Con London Summer Edition – if you are wanting to get your best OITNB merch signed, or get a photo op with her, best to sign up for them sooner rather than later.
