Game of Thrones star Kristofer Hivju (aka Tormund) is coming to Belgium!

FACTS announces first guest actor for October edition

The Norwegian actor Kristofer Hivju is coming to FACTS on October 19th and 20th, in Flanders Expo, Ghent. He is best known for his roles in Game of Thrones, Fast & Furious 8, Beck, Turist and After Earth.

With his Game of Thrones character Tormund Giantsbane, Kristofer Hivju became an instant worldwide fan favourite, which he remained from season 3 all the way to the finale. 

His talents didn’t go unnoticed in Hollywood, as he got the chance to perform in The Fate of the Furious (aka Fast & Furious 8) as Rhodes, the main henchman of Charlize Theron’s character. He also convincingly portrayed the Security Chief in M. Night Shyamalan’s After Earth, in which he delivered impressive dialogue and monologue scenes.

He may have reached global praise for his Game of Thrones performance, but Kristofer Hivju was already quite the celebrity in the Nordic region. With lead roles in the movies Operation North Pole, Turist & the soon to be released TWIN, as well as in the fantastic crime series Beck, we know we haven’t seen the last of this actor yet.

Kristofer Hivju is the first guest actor of FACTS Fall 2019, on October 19-20, in Flanders Expo Ghent! He will be available for photoshoots, autographs and panels on Saturday and Sunday.

FACTS, Your Belgian Comic Con, is not just a convention, it’s another dimension. FACTS is the biggest pop culture event of the Benelux that brings together the best of movies, series, games and superheroes, allows all its aspects to spring to life and unites a wide array of pop culture fans.

Twice a year, the FACTS Mothership docks at the halls of Flanders Expo in Ghent to present its riches in the form of world-famous actors, international comic artists, thousands of fans dressed up as fictional characters, 50.000+ square meters of surprising activities, and 250+ exhibitors with geeky merchandise and collector’s items. 

FACTS has been around since 1993 and has almost 30 years of know-how in the comic con world. On top of that, this event is backed by ‘Heroes’, a European network of 11 pop culture events spread across Belgium, The Netherlands, Spain and Sweden. The Belgian event ‘Made in Asia’, for example, is one of those sibling events.

The next edition is held on October 19-20, 2019, in Flanders Expo Ghent. If you’re even remotely a fan of fantasy, science fiction, comics, anime, cosplay, video games, board games, films and TV series, then FACTS is a phenomenon that should be on your bucket list.
