Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley to Attend Denver Comic Con 2016   

Stars of Vampire Diaries Coming to Denver

DENVER – March 8, 2016 – Denver Comic Con (DCC), Denver’s largest consumer convention and a program of education nonprofit Pop Culture Classroom (PCC), today announced actors Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley will attend the June 17 – 19, 2016 event at the Colorado Convention Center. 

Somerhalder and Wesley are best known for their roles in the TV series “The Vampire Diaries.” Somerhalder’s additional TV credits include his work as Boone Carlyle on the show “Lost” as well as the character Adam Knight on “Smallville.” 

“Both Somerhalder and Wesley have major appeal with our younger audiences,” said Denver Comic Con director Christina Angel. “We’re excited to bring in these stars from such a popular TV series.” 

Somerhalder and Wesley join previously announced guests in the 2016 Denver Comic Con lineup, including Stan Lee (Marvel Comics), Carrie Fisher (Star Wars), Ralph Macchio (Karate Kid and The Outsiders), C. Thomas Howell (The Outsiders), Jenna Coleman and Alex Kingston (Doctor Who), among many other comic book creators and pop culture celebrities.

Denver Comic Con has quickly become one of the most attended pop culture conventions in America. The popularity is due in part because of its robust schedule of programming—more than 400 hours of sessions during which artists, creators, celebrities and industry experts talk about their craft and their creations—as well as its family-friendly mission and environment. The largest portion of the show floor, more than 9,000 sq. ft., is dedicated to teens and children with activities designed to engage kids in education through pop culture.
