Main highlights of international western pop culture conventions include celebrity guests from film, television, comics and literary works. Supanova Pop Culture Expo in Brisbane brought in a number of American celebrities from various fandoms spanning the last 2 decades over the 3-day convention last November at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.

About Star Wars, he's known JJ Abrams since 4 and told JJ he would take on any role offerred in the saga. He got to meet the cast of The Force Awaken in London where during his first scene off-camera the late-Carrie Fisher walked up to him grabbing his @$$ with “Welcome to Star Wars”.
|"Sorry for Heroes Reborn."|
Touching on the recent Heroes Reborn (2015), Greg apologised to fans for it. He shared that he was originally called back to the series as really evil Matt Parkman so he initially declined returning unless Parkman got a redemption scene. However after shooting started for the series, that redemption scene seemed to have been forgotten.
On the final day of Supanova, Nathan Fillion held a solo panel packed out by fans. When asked on what was his most challenging experience, Nathan replied that it was carving out a career in acting because there are not enough jobs available.
|Who are fans of Malcolm Reynolds, or Richard Castle?|
- Most embarrassing scene: ripping his pants while lifting up Jewel Staite (Kaylee) on the set of Firefly.
- When filming on Saving Private Ryan he was too nervous around the big name to cry for his scene.
- Voice acting is a very different form of performance.
- He's not much into boardgames and prefers video games.
- When making Serenity, they felt it necessary to up the stakes from TV to film and so determined which characters would die.
- Joss Whedon's bad guys don't think they are bad guys.

Check out Supanova's official website for this year's celebrity guests at their conventions throughout Australia in Gold Coast, Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Brisbane and Adelaide. For western pop culture fans in Malaysia, these Australia cities may be our closest destination to catch American acting talents in person. Of course, let's hope some day these will visit our shores.
