Who is coming to Wizard World Philly 2017? The Vision, too!

Doctor Who stars Billie Piper and Pearl Mackie are coming to Wizard World Comic Con Philadelphia next week.  Piper (Secret Diary of a Call Girl, Penny Dreadful) is making her second visit to Philadelphia, while Pearl is making her first-ever Wizard World appearance.  When the long dormant Doctor Who series returned to the BBC in 2005, Piper was cast as Rose Tyler, the companion to Christopher Eccleston’s Doctor for the first two seasons of the re-launched series.  Pearl currently stars opposite Peter Capaldi as the Doctor’s latest companion "Bill".  Both will be at Wizard World Comic Con Philadelphia on Saturday, June 3 and Sunday, June 4, with photo ops, autograph sessions and a Q&A with fans.  

Paul Bettany, best known currently for playing the hero The Vision in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is also making his first appearance and will be available on Saturday only for autographs and photos as well.

Karen Gillan (Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Who) has cancelled due to a scheduling conflict.
