3rd Fantasy Basel: More than “just” cosplay

From 29 April to 1 May, Basel will once again be the place to be for game and film fans. And now it’s been decided which film and TV stars will be honouring Fantasy Basel 2017.

In addition to Cosplay, the third edition of Fantasy Basel has much more to offer. Three halls of Messe Basel with covering 50,000 square metres surface will lure guests into a dream world of gaming, e-sports, comics, film, art and entertainment electronics. Stars from film, TV and gaming will be there for their fans both on and off stage, giving behind-the-scenes insights into big productions. With David Haydn-Jones aka Mr Ketch from the TV series “Supernatural” and Martin Klebba from the “Pirates of the Caribbean” cinema series, two Hollywood names from current productions will visit this year's Fantasy Basel. Also confirmed are the creature actress Nathalie Cuzner (from the TV series “Doctor Who”), model Hattie Gotobed (“Game of Thrones”), Frodo stunt double Kiran Shah (from “The Lord of the Rings”) and the Swedish actress Stephanie Silva, who appeared in “Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens” as the first female droid, ME-8D9.
