Lindsey Jordan, stage presenter at Teesside Unleashed Comic-Con, said: “We’re back at university and this time we’re joined by the legendary Chris Barrie.
“I’m delighted to give his fans on Teesside the opportunity to meet him as he’s a real joy to chat to and is full of stories about his time on set.”
“You might also want to come dressed in pink because you can immerse yourself in the world of Barbie and transform into a living doll or raccoon and pose next to Baby Groot.”
“Teesside Unleashed Comic-Con may be smaller than most, but it’s still powerful and full of geeky delights.”
