2020 is in full swing. A new year is here and a new decade as well. Say hello to the new Roaring 20’s. May it be full of as much excitement and good times as the previous decade.
Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (C2E2) has become a cultural institution in Chicago since the convention first began in 2010. Since then, every show has offered up a fantastic array of celebrity figures, comic book industry professionals, and other nerdy noteworthies for fans to meet. A recent celebrity addition is celebrated cosplayer and Internet sensation, Ivy Doomkitty.
The Umbrella Academy debuted in February of 2019 on Netflix, and made an instant splash with its first season. The series was adapted from the acclaimed comic book series by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá, with a second season announced by Netflix in April after it was met with praise by critics and viewers.
Two of the shows main cast will be at C2E2 2020. Emmy Raver-Lampman (Allison Hargreeves/The Rumor) and Robert Sheehan (Klaus Hargreeves/The Séance).
Emmy Raver-Lampman, a star of the world of musical theatre, made her debut in the touring (and later Broadway) company of the musical Hair. Since then, she has been delighting audiences with her performances, including those of Pearl Krabs in Spongebob Squarepants: The Broadway Musical and Angelica Schuyler in the first national touring company of Hamilton.
Robert Sheehan has played a lot of roles over the years. First appearing in the films An Cuainín and Song for a Raggy Boy, Robert kept rising to become a name in both Irish and international media circles. Standout roles for him include Nathan Young in the TV show Misfits, Tom Natsworthy in the movie Mortal Engines, and Simon Lewis in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.
These two fabulous actors will be at the show February 28th– March 1st.
Grab a mask, make a plan, and get ready for the next C2E2. There’s always something for everyone, whether a person loves comics, TV and movies, gaming or anything that makes a person nerdy to the max. It’s nearly time, so let the hype continue. 2020 is here and C2E2 is coming to help make it great.
