(live-PR.com) - Perhaps best known for roles as “Captain Jack Harkness” from “Doctor Who/Torchwood” and “Malcolm Merlyn” in the hit series “Arrow” and “Legends of Tomorrow,” popular guest John Barrowman will make a triumphant return to Wizard World Comic Con at upcoming shows in St. Louis (February 3-4) and Cleveland (March 3-4). Barrowman will greet fans, sign autographs, pose for photo ops

 

and conduct an interactive Q&A session during the pop culture extravaganzas in both cities.

Having created “Harkness” in the first series of Russell T Davies’s revamped “Doctor Who” for BBC TV, the character created such an impact that he was given his own spin off series, “Torchwood.” His multi talents have also been seen on primetime Saturday night in the UK, presenting his own entertainment show “Tonight’s The Night” on BBC1. The show, which helped ordinary people to fulfill their performing dreams, was a co production with John’s production company, Barrowman Barker Productions. Three series have aired in the UK, and the format has been sold worldwide, with the show now playing in countries as diverse as Sweden and China.

Barrowman joins a celebrity roster at America’s Center in St. Louis that includes Sebastian Stan (Captain America franchise), Sean Bean (The Lord of the Rings, "Game of Thrones"), Bonnie Wright (Harry Potter franchise), Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings, The Goonies), Billy Boyd (The Lord of the Rings) and more. At the Huntington Convention Center in Cleveland, Barrowman is part of a lineup that features Jason Momoa (Aquaman, Justice League), Joe Flanigan ("Stargate: Atlantis"), Matt Ryan (Constantine, Assassin's Creed: Black Flag) and Nichelle Nichols ("Star Trek").

Wizard World Comic Cons also feature non-stop live entertainment, gaming, exclusive Q&A sessions with top celebrities, movie screenings hosted by stars and directors and more. Details to follow soon.
