Fan Expo Vancouver may well be gearing up for a big 2023 year. They’ve begun their wave of guest announcements so that holiday gift givers can show their love for the pop culture enthusiast in the family by buying them a pass. In the early weeks of November, they reported Stephen Amell of Arrow fame and Matthew Lewis from the Harry Potter movies will appear.
For now, the official website information is stating they will be signing autographs and doing photo ops for one day only.
Amell’s return will be great for those who missed seeing him in the early years of this event. He’s been a fan favourite and to see he hasn’t left Terminal City behind is terrific. His upcoming projects include a sequel and spinoff to Code 8.
Who knows, maybe his brother, Robbie, may also make a surprise appearance. The two appeared in this superhero cop series together. And if both have something to say about how to save Arrowverse, everyone will be paying attention. Fans of this universe set in The CW sphere of influence are sad because there’s a lot of series being cancelled. On this list includes The Flash, and it’ll be sad to not see them film in the downtown core anymore.
For fans of Harry Potter, they already know that Lewis was unable to attend the previous Expo.
Hopefully nothing changes in the meantime to affect the 2023 show. As most convention attendees know, a job to be on screen usually means affecting their appearances in festivals like this. This beloved actor showed he doesn’t have to be Neville all the time, and after the films, he’s had a prolific time on British stage and television. One of his latest efforts includes appearing on the remake of All Creatures Great and Small, and as for what’s upcoming, he’ll be telling all when this event closes off Winter.
