Torchwood’s Gwen Cooper and the seventh Doctor join us for our third annual sci-fi extravaganza!
For a show which has Wales running through every strand of its DNA, there are few things more Welsh about Torchwood than the lovely Eve Myles. Who better then to help us launch the SFX Weekender 3 as we move shop to Prestatyn in North Wales for the first time in 2012?
Born in Powys and earning her acting stripes with nine years on the BBC One Wales drama Belonging, Myles is a veteran of the small screen. As well as appearances in Doctor Who and Merlin, Myles will be instantly recognisable to viewers on both sides of the Atlantic as Torchwood’s Gwen Cooper. With her characteristic Welsh accent and no-nonsense attitude Gwen has been keeping Jack in check for four years and ranks as the only mortal member of the team to have survived all the way to Miracle Day, a testament to the popularity of her character. You voted her best actress at the SFX Awards 2010, but she makes her live Weekender debut at the SFX Weekender 3 where she’ll appear onstage for a Q&A and spend time at the signing table.
The SFX Weekender takes place at Prestatyn holiday camp in North Wales on Friday 3 February and Saturday 4 February 2012, with our pre-party on Thursday 2 February for the early birds. VIP tickets are already almost sold out but there are still other options available. Make sure you get yours before it’s too late!
