Got your ticket already? Still planning on getting a ticket for The Kingdom 2023? The initial guest list has been announced.
If you haven’t got your ticket for The Kingdom 2023, there is still a little time. The August event is run by the same company behind The Gathering. While Sasnak City started off with an Outlander convention focus, that has grown as Sassenachs fall in love with other shows and movies.
The Last Kingdom is a must-watch for all Sassenachs. It is set in the time of King Alfred the Great at first, mostly following Uhtred, a Saxon man raised as a Dane. All Uhtred wants is his birthright back, and he ends up with some loyal friends along the way.
While Alexander Dreymon is not attending The Kingdom 2023, there are other awesome cast members from the show arriving. Some of them are the bigger players of the series, whether they are former love interests, enemies turned friends, or loyal followers.
Keep in mind that the guest list can change. Filming schedules are always going to come before convention appearances.
Who is attending The Kingdom 2023?
If you love Uhtred’s band of Merry Men, you’ll be happy to hear that there are two who will be at The Kingdom 2023. Mark Rowley and Arnas Fedaravicius, who play Finan and Sihtric on the series, will attend the convention. They are great if you’ve seen them on social media, so there is everything to love about them being at the con.
Harry Gilby, who plays Aethelstan, will also be at the event. This is a man you will want to meet after the way The Last Kingdom: Seven Kings Must Die ended. We have a lot of questions (and praise!).
We also can’t overlook Cavan Clerkin, who plays Father Pyrlig. He is the “Warrior Priest” as a few of us dubbed him, and he has always done what he believes to be right as well as good for the man.
Pyrlig spent a lot of The Last Kingdom Season 5 with Brida, so you’ll be happy to hear that the two will end up back together at The Kingdom 2023. Emily Cox is going to be at the event. She was actually one of the first people mentioned in the lineup.
The most recent has been the enemy who has become a friend. Eliza Butterworth is going to be at The Last Kingdom convention. Hopefully, she can get David Dawson to attend if his schedule allows. Dawson was going to be at the first Kingdom but he had to pull out due to scheduling conflicts. It’s a huge deal if he attends as he doesn’t tend to do these fan conventions. This is just how amazing the Sasnak City conventions are.
Update: There have been updates to the guest list since writing this. Sadly, Mark Rowley and Emily Cox are no longer attending. Here’s the list of people coming:
- Timothy Innes
- Toby Regbo
- Harry Gilby
