Tye Sheridan is best known for playing lead mutant Cyclops in X-Men: Apocalypse and made his film debut in the critically-acclaimed The Tree of Life, and has also starred in The Stanford Prison Experiment. Sheridan will reprise his role as Cyclops on the next X-men movie which is set to be released later this year.

Sheridan will grace the convention together wit hFinn Jones, the character in the popular Marvel series Iron Fist and Loras Tyrell in Game of Thrones.

That’s only the tip of the iceberg as there’s more in store for everyone as the world of #NetflixAPCC will be back at AsiaPOP this year, with bigger and better suprises awaiting Netflix fans. Fans will get to experience their favorite shows come to life, take photos, win swag, and more. Netflix will also have a special panel session where it will bring onstage Netflix stars and share never-seen-before footage from upcoming shows.

Added to the lineup of international celebrity guests is cosplayer, model, actress, and live-streamer Vera Chimera, who got her big break as Lilith the Siren in the game Borderlands 2. Vera’s recent projects include several Overwatch events, where she cosplays Tracer, as well as a slew of local and international conventions.

Yugana Senshi Uon is making a return this year. A cosplayer since 2013, her creepy-cool portrayals of various pop culture characters has made her a mainstay in events all over Asia and the world, appearing for various brands and judging cosplay competitions.

Also making a return to spill more creative juices on the AsiaPOP Comicon main floor is digital artist Stanley Lau a.k.a. artgerm, whose works are famous all over the globe for a style that perfectly blends with the best of Western and Eastern aesthetics. Aside from being an illustrator, he is also a designer, concept artist, and co-founder of the acclaimed Imaginary Friends Studios.

Joining the roster of artists is the duo of Amanda Viseli and Michelle Valigura, whose works have been licensed by the likes of Disneyland, Kidrobot, and other big names. Both got their big break working on stop-motion animation for the Simpsons series and the film Elf, and both co-founded design brand Switcheroo.
