Nelsan Ellis Added To Dragon*Con 2010 Guest List

February 14, 2010 by  

Nelsan EllisNelsan Ellis from Alan Ball‘s hit HBO TV vampire series True Blood will also be attending Dragon*Con along with Sam Trammell this year in Atlanta, Georgia.  Nelsan‘s portrayal as Lafayette Reynolds, Bon Temps, Louisiana’s flamboyant, sassy and sexy “entrepreneur”, has earned himself a large group of devoted fans (myself included).  True Blood fans should take note that Dragon*Con, is one of, if not the largest convention for multi-media and pop culture that takes place during the Labor Day weekend in Atlanta, GA each year.  The dates for Dragon*Con 2010 are September 3 through September 6.

At this point, we don’t know if Nelsan will be sporting Lafayette‘s short-order cook apron, his hard hat or his gold lame pants.  He’ll probably just be himself to the delight of his fans.  You can receive the latest information regarding the event by checking the Dragon*con website here.

Membership (tickets) to attend Dragon*Con are available for purchase from their online store.  The cost covers:

“…all four days, all panels, events, demonstrations, concerts, performances, contests, snacks and munchies in our Consuite (as available) and a host of other activities.”

Children under age 7 can attend free.  Pricing for tickets increase as the date draws nearer, so until 5/14/2010 the cost is $80.  Thereafter, the cost will increase to $90 until 7/15/2010 and then up to $100.

By the way, when you’re at the convention and have the opportunity to  say hello to Nelsan, don’t ask him about “V“.  There might be a vampire close enough to hear you!
