Ivan Drago Joins Supanova

Supanova Pop Culture Expo’s latest guest announcements come with a mixture of panache, verve, strength and style that will have fans over the moon in anticipation of meeting them at the Melbourne (11 &12 April) and Gold Coast (18 & 19 April) events.

Muscle-man Dolph Lundgren has made an amazing career comeback in recent years. Best known for starring roles in the films Rocky IV, Masters of the Universe and Universal Soldier, Dolph reaffirmed his action hero status in The Expendables 1, 2 & 3, alongside Hollywood heavyweights Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Dolph is currently working towards his latest release, Skin Trade – a thriller he starred in, co-wrote and produced.

Australian-New Zealand actor Manu Bennett currently stars as ASIS agent Deathstroke in the comic-adapted television series Arrow, and is no stranger to action. On the small screen he played Crixus in the sword-and-sandal slasher series Spartacus: War of the Damned/Gods of the Arena, and Marc Antony in Xena: Warrior Princess; on the silver screen he appeared as Azog the Defiler in Peter Jackson’s epic Hobbit trilogy.

Voice actor Supa-Star Robbie Daymond currently gives life to Tuxedo Mask and his alter ego Mamoru Chiba in the new English-dubbed Sailor Moon series. A master of vocal disguise, Robbie also plays SwaySway in Nickelodeon’s hit cartoon, Breadwinners, and recently voiced the villainous duo, Myles and Evan in Transformers: Rescue Bots.
