In an announcement that’s personally exciting for me to report about, actor David Morrissey, who most recently appeared as The Governor in Seasons 3 and 4 of The Walking Dead, will be appearing at this year’s Phoenix Comicon. Below is the official press release:

Phoenix Comicon is proud to announce that actor David Morrissey will be attending Phoenix Comicon 2014.
“We are so happy to announce that David Morrissey will attending Phoenix Comicon 2014 with us,” says Convention Director of Marketing Jillian Squires.
Morrissey’s career began when he was 18 on the television series One Summer, which would earn him national recognition through his native England. In 2003, Morrissey appeared in the films State of Play as the role of Stephen Collins and another film The Deal as Gordon Brown. The former earned him a Best Actor nomination at the British Academy Television Awards and the latter won him a Best Actor award from the Royal Television Society.
Morrissey also has had an illustrious career as a stage actor including playing the eponymous king in the timeless classic Macbeth. He would go on to win Best Actor for his portrayal of the king at the 2011 Liverpool Daily Post Arts Awards.
Most recently, Morrissey began a notorious stint on the hit AMC television series The Walking Dead as a devilish character, The Governor. This role would earn him a nomination for Best Supporting Actor at the 2013 Saturn Awards.
