Friday, February 5, 2016 — Our first star is Darth Maul from Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, the murderous, demon-ish duellist with the double-bladed lightsaber. Behind that black and red ‘mask’ lies Ray Park, a Scottish martial artist, gymnast and actor, skilled in the art of Wushu. So it’s bound to be a spectacular mix of fighting skills and cool anecdotes.
Park also portrayed Toad in X-Men (2000), Snake Eyes in G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013) and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009), was stunt coordinator and actor (Reptile, Baraka) in Mortal Kombat: Annihilation (1997), was in Heroes as Edgar (2010), among many other movies and tv series.
Ray Park will be available on Saturday and Sunday during FACTS spring edition for a panel, a signing session and photoshoots.
FACTS is the largest Comic Con show in the Benelux and will be held for the 26th time on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 April, at Flanders Expo in Ghent. Each edition more than 45,000 fans gather at FACTS for two days to switch from the real world to the one of Fantasy, Comics, Action Heroes, Games, Anime and Toys.
With more than three hundred exhibitors, dozens of international stars and a unique Cosplay contest, FACTS is for the European fantasy fans, as one of our visitors called it, “not just a convention, it’s our special dimension!”
