Mark Hamill Announced as Special Guest at FanExpo Canada in Toronto

It was with an instant bolt of elation when I opened my email to see an announcement from one of my favorite conventions that, my idol Mark Hamill – aka: Luke Skywalker, aka: The Joker, aka: grape enthusiast, aka: prolific Twitter poster, was going to be attending this year’s FanExpo Canada!

FAN EXPO CANADA™ is the largest Comics, Sci-fi, Horror, Anime, and Gaming event in Canada and the 3rd largest Pop Culture event in North America.Celebrating its 22nd year, FAN EXPO CANADA™ has grown from a small comic book convention attracting 1,500 fans into a multi-faceted, 4-day citywide event that attracts over 129,000 people from around the world. The event provides a substantial multi-million dollar economic impact to the City of Toronto, filling up hotels and restaurants throughout the duration of the Expo.

This will be Hamill’s first Canadian convention appearance and my family and I are “freaking out”! When I told my (Luke Skywalker fangirls) daughters, they started running around screaming! “I think I’m going to faint!” said my oldest, Alexa.

This has been a 30+ year dream of mine and has even grown more since the creation of this site and following his fun and interactive Twitter posts/responses! Not only do I (HOPEFULLY) get to meet a legend but a genuine and wonderful person.
