Dwarves Pull Out Of Supanova Perth

Just as we’ve all been enjoying The Hobbit panel and the fantastic pics from Armageddon last weekend, we get some sad news for hobbit-movie-image-dwarves-nori-ori-dori-01-300x252Supanova in Sydney and even sadder news for Supanova in Perth.

The actors Aidan Turner (Kili), Adam Brown (Ori) and Jed Brophy (Nori) have had to pull out of the Perth Supanova because of the locking-in of the series’ production schedule and will have to leave Middle-earth Magic in Sydney early in order to return to New Zealand.

Here’s what Supanova say

Mark Ferguson, (Gil-Galad from ‘The Lord of the Rings’ and messenger for a significant contingent of Tolkien Dwarves) has just delivered some hard news for Perth: unfortunately, due to the locking-in of the series’ production schedule, he and the Dwarves can no longer make it to Perth Supanova. As filming is near Wellington, NZ, it’s now logistically impossible to get them ‘there and back again’ in time.

The lads are very sad to disappoint their Perth fans as they were looking forward to meeting everyone, but the merry gathering will have to happen another time instead. We all hope that everyone understands that the completion of ‘The Desolation of Smaug‘ had to overrule Their Presence in Perth this time around!

FOXTIX will of course refund all Perth ‘Middle Earth Magic’ passes so please contact them ASAP.

In Sydney, there will also be a minor impact: the group will appear as announced, but they will need to leave by 3:30PM on the Sunday in order to catch the flight that will get them to the set on time. So if you’re a Sydney Supa-Fan wanting an autograph or portrait with Mark and / or the Dwarves, please make sure you have it in hand before 3:00PM on Sunday to make sure you don’t miss out.

Meanwhile, start hoarding your (Supanova Weapons Policy-approved) axes, knives, rocks, precious gems, beard accessories, ale and chips (but NO LETTUCE) in preparation to meet the Dwarves at your next opportunity! 

Meanwhile, in case you haven’t seen them, here are some fab pics of Dean O’Gorman (Fili) and Aidan Turner (Kili) and some of all the dwarves at Armageddon put together by Aidan Turner Forever
