The folks over at Vancouver Fan Expo are continuing to add names to the line-up at the 2024 edition of the pop culture event.

Notable names announced so far include Lord of the Rings star Elijah Wood, Stranger Things season four breakout Joseph Quinn, and the iconic Danny Trejo, who will be in Vancouver this winter for the event.

Also from Stranger Things is Grace Van Dien, who had a short but memorable role. And joining Danny Trejo from the Breaking Bad universe is Giancarlo Esposito, who played the villain Gus Fring. He also played the villain in The Mandalorian series, from the Star Wars Universe; Eman Esfadi, who plays Ezra Bridger in Ahsoka will also be there.

On Dec. 7, Fan Expo's organizers revealed new names added to the roster, including Titus Welliver (Bosch and Lost), Mary McDonnell (Battlestar Galactica and Independence Day), and Michelle Hurd (Star Trek: Picard, Ash vs Evil Dead).

Also notable nerd culture icons Adam Savage (Mythbusters), Bruce Campbell (the Evil Dead film series), and Vincent D'Onofrio (Jurassic World, Daredevil, Men in Black) will be on site. All will be available for autographs and photos. And Charlie Cox, who plays Daredevil in Daredevil.

Prices for autographs or photos range from $50 to $130, depending on the person.

It's not all about the live-action film and TV series, either. Also scheduled to appear are Jodi Benson (who voiced Ariel in The Little Mermaid), Grey DeLisle (who's voiced a lot of things, including the current version of Daphne in Scooby-Doo cartoons, and Lego Wonder Woman), and Charles Martinet (the current voice of Mario in video games).

There's also a long list of comic artists who will be making appearances.

Aside from meeting and greeting stars from TV, video games, films, and comics, there are already a variety of events planned, though the schedule is filled out.

There will be a variety of cosplay contests, though, including for costumes and for replicas (for those good at recreating props). There will also be the usual panels, demos, and workshops, though details haven't been announced. And of course a market area.

While the schedule hasn't been released, tickets are on sale. VIP packages have sold out, but single-day access starts at $34, while three-day passes are currently $80, though those prices will go up on Feb. 2.

Fan Expo runs from Feb 17 to 19 at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
