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.

Other panels of note (and personal interest) are

Game of Thrones on Friday 2:50 in Hall H. Panelists include : John Bradley as Samwell Tarly, Emilia Clarkeas Daenerys Targaryen, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jaime Lannister, Peter Dinklageas Tyrion Lannister, Michelle Fairley as Catelyn Stark, Kit Harington as Jon Snow,Rose Leslie as Ygritte, and Richard Madden as Robb Stark. The panel will be moderated by Elvis Mitchell.

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.

Panelists include: Travis Fimmel (Ragnar),Katheryn Winnick (Lagertha), George Blagden (Athelstan), Jessalyn Gilsig(Siggy), Gustaf Skarsgård (Floki), and Clive Standen (Rollo), along with writer/creator Michael Hirst, and Dirk Hoogstra (EVP and general manager, HISTORY & H2).

We can’t wait to see what secrets that they’ll try to keep this year

About B

Really, there is never enough Eric... I'm loyal to the Viking, no matter what. I will love him whether in Book, Show, and just because... my first thoughts are of him and I close my eyes to dream of him. As far as I'm concerned, the night can not get here soon enough.

  1. I am so jealous. I wish I was gonna be there…

  2. I really wish I could go, but from what I know of this convention, it’s really hectic. I doubt I could even keep up, but it would all be worth it just to see Alex in person.

  3. Ohhhhh, I was so worried when they started telling us which shows were partaking this year and I didn’t see TB listed earlier. I’m soooo glad that they are going to be there this year, although by the sound of things maybe Alex won’t be there this year? I hope so as I truly love to see him bantering with the other cast members and Kristin and the audience too. I sure hope he makes it back to the states for this panel. Keeping my fingers and toes crossed that hes’ back in time.

    • I had an inkling it was going to be Saturday, especially with the SDCC chatter going on the past few weeks…and yes, keep those positive thoughts coming that Alex will be attending,

  4. what’s the point I CAN NEVER GET TICKETS ANYWAY

  5. I am going to be living vicariously through you and your attendance, since i am in Florida its difficult for me to go. Enjoy and i will be waiting for your reports and pictures Hugs Kristie

    • Same, I’m also in Florida, I hate how everything good is always in California. I’ve been there all of once in my life.

    • As a fellow East coaster, I completely understand how difficult it is to get there.

  6. Oh Gustaf Skarsgård now Alex needs to show up because then he and his brother could hang out and then we would have amazing photos of them both! Now Bill needs to show for Hemlock Grove (no idea if they are coming or not to CC)and then I would have the trifecta Skarsgård talent!

    • Yeah, it would be great to have the three bros together at CC, but didn’t Hemlock Grove already start shooting for season 2???? I thought they started in July sometime. I hope that the Hemlock gang makes it however cause thats’ probably the best subscription show I’ve ever seen!!!! Thanks Netflix for giving this show to us!!!!

      Does anyone know for certain if Alex is going to be coming back for CC this year? I sure hope so as I just love all the banter when hes’ around!!!!!

      • No we did not know anything yet but I hope we learn something soon. I loved every minute of HG and Bill was so good in it, I could see both his father and brother in him but he has his own distinct style in the way he carries himself. At times I could hear his accent come out and it made the scenes even better. I know they were at WonderCon but they I have not seen anything about them being at CC though not yet.

      • that will be a “no” for Hemlock Grove being at SDCC. I would say maybe next year if it picks up steam.

        As for Alex, I am not sure… No one is officially confirmed to go yet. In 2011, he was not originally announced to go until a few days before con.So there is always hope

  7. Wish I could join you there! Thanks for sharing with those of us too far away to attend! I’m an East Coaster too (New Jersey) and whole heartedly agree with Tammy! All the good stuff happens in Cali. :-(.

  8. Well, at least one Skarsgard will be there. I hate how they schedule these things, you can either go to the signing or the panel, but you won’t be able to do both.

    • I know! And the past few years I’ve had really really good panel seats so I feel like it was a good trade off to not get a chance for the autograph … Cause it’s not a guarantee you would win the pass to get an autograph

      • Yeah, that’s why I’m actually glad I’ll never get to go. I wouldn’t even know how to choose.

  9. […] announced who will be attending True Blood’s Comic Con panel! We will be well-represented by our very own, B! You can find out who will be attending from HBO on […]

  10. I heard via Tumbler that Moyer is not coming as well due to new projects – although he is listed

    Enjoy it! Hopefully somebody will manage to ask about e/s future

    • Yep, Maja, I’ve seen all over the web that Steven will not be attending either due to his commitment to the Musical, Chicago that will be opening with only a 10 day rehearsal time and that they asked him to not miss any of the rehearsal days, so he won’t be at CC either.

      Wow the two most important Vampires and neither of them are going to be there on the panel……….Hope Anna has a lot of answers for the truebies that do attend.

      • It will be a very different dynamic on the panel this year without Stephen and Alex, they are the two biggest personalities on the show. Interesting to see who steps up and takes center stage in their absence. It really sucks – I look forward to the Comic Con Skarsporn all year round! Hopefully Brian Buckner or Anna will be asked an Eric/Sookie question, but I think it’s much more likely that they will on concentrate on the characters of the actors who are there :(
