Great Scott! SUPANOVA Goes Back to the Future in April

Synchronise your watches and prepare the DeLorean; Supanova Pop Culture Expo
 is breaking the time barrier with more guest star announcements for their Melbourne (11 &12 April) and Gold Coast (18 & 19 April) events.
 
What time is it? According to Back to the Future
, flying cars, hoverboards, and self-lacing kicks are all the rage in 2015. While these plausible predictions are yet to realize their potential, the trilogy’s legacy has maintained a prevailing popularity since its first film in 1985.
 
To celebrate the 30th anniversary, Christopher Lloyd
 is coming back to Supanova! Spanning a remarkable career in film and television, Christopher is well known for his portrayal of Uncle Fester in The Addams Family
, Judge Doom in Who Framed Roger Rabbit
 and as the eccentric inventor, ‘Doc’ Brown in the Back to the Future
 trilogy. Christopher returns to Australia for the first time since his last appearance at Supanova in 2012.
 
In further great news, sailing into Supanova direct from the set of Dead Men Tell No Tales
, are Martin Klebba
 and Kevin McNally
. 
The pair are in Australia to film the 5th installment of Pirates of the Caribbean
, which is about to begin production in Queensland.
 
Martin
, an actor and stunt professional since the '90s, has appeared in dozens of feature films including Mirror Mirror
 and Hancock
, and television shows The Cape
, and Scrubs
. However Martin is probably most recognised as Marty in the Pirates
 films: The Curse of the Black Pearl
Dead Man's Chest
, and At World's End
. Martin will appear on the big screen later this year as Chucky in Ted 2
, due for international release mid-2015.
 
Time travel is a cinch for Kevin
, who starred in the 1984 series Doctor Who: The Twin Dilemma
. While Kevin’s film career started with the Bond epic, The Spy Who Loved Me
 it was his role as Joshamee Gibbs in Pirates
 film, The Curse of the Black Pearl 
that truly put him in the international spotlight. Kevin appeared in 4 further installments of the series; Dead Man's Chest
At World's End
 and On Stranger Tides
, making him one of the only three actors in the franchise to star in all four films.
 
Unfortunately Merlin star, Eoin Macken
 has been called away to complete the filming of the new television series The Night Shift 
and will be unable to attend the April expos.

So come along and have the time of your life. These Supa-Stars join an outstanding line-up of celebrities already announced for the Melbourne and Gold Coast expos, including:
