Based on the bold lettering I am assuming show runner Bryan Buckner, Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Ryan Kwanten, Michael McMillian, Anna Camp, Nelsan Ellis, Joe Manganiello, Kristen Bauer van Straten, Rutina Wesley, Deborah Ann Wolll, Sam Tramell, and Rob Kazinsky…. Alexander Skarsgård is listed but not in bold letters. The panel WILL be moderated by EW’s Tim Stack.
I will share info as I piece together more.
I, B, will being making my yearly pilgrimage to San Diego to pay homage to the the show that has brought so many of us together… and embrace my fangirl/geekiness at the sametime. There will be occasional live tweeting and sharing of my con experience on the VikingWenches accounts.

TV Guide Magazine: Fan Favorites on Friday Ballroom 20 @5:15. As of right now Kristin Bauer van Straten is scheduled to be on this one among a few others. Though, on this panel you never know who might show up. Nelsan was a surprise panelist 2 years ago.
