)-- Jenna Coleman, who played “Clara Oswald,” the occasional "travelling assistant" to the Eleventh Doctor in the BBC series “Doctor Who,” returns to the Wizard World Tour next month when she attends Wizard World Comic Con Minneapolis, May 6-7 at the Minneapolis Convention Center. She joins fellow “Doctor Who” star Peter Capaldi, where both will greet fans, pose for solo and dual photo ops, sign autographs and conduct an interactive fan Q&A during the pop culture extravaganza.
The England-born Coleman is also familiar to Marvel comics fans as Bucky’s girlfriend in the hit film Captain America: The First Avenger. Last year, she had the title role in British TV series “Victoria” and a supporting spot on the feature film Me Before You.
In addition to Capaldi, Coleman joins a celebrity roster at Wizard World Comic Con Minneapolis that includes Nichelle Nichols ("Star Trek,"), Lou Ferrigno ("The Incredible Hulk") and "The Monkees" duo of Peter Tork and Micky Dolenz. Additional celebrities will be announced closer to the start of the show.
