From Westeros to the Upside Down: Tom Wlaschiha is Cyprus Comic Con 2023's Headline Guest!
Headline Guest for Cyprus Comic Con 2023
Prepare to embark on an extraordinary journey into the worlds of fantasy and mystery as Cyprus Comic Con 2023 proudly announces its headline guest: the charismatic and versatile actor, Tom Wlaschiha.
Renowned internationally for his unforgettable roles as Jaqen H’ghar in the epic Game of Thrones saga and as the enigmatic Dmitri Antonov, also known as ‘Enzo,’ in Stranger Things, Wlaschiha’s presence promises to elevate this year’s convention to unparalleled heights.
Wlaschiha’s journey to stardom is a testament to his talent and dedication. At the age of 17, he embarked on an adventure to Agawam, Massachusetts, shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall. During his year-long stay, he not only immersed himself in the culture but also honed his craft by acting in theater and mastering the English language. His linguistic prowess doesn’t end there – Wlaschiha is fluent in French, Italian, and Russian, a testament to his commitment to his craft and his ability to seamlessly embody diverse characters.
His acting career took flight in 2011 when he was cast as the enigmatic Jaqen H’ghar in the second season of the iconic HBO fantasy series, Game of Thrones. His portrayal of the mysterious Faceless Man who uttered the famous phrase ‘Valar Morghulis’ left audiences worldwide in awe. Wlaschiha’s connection with Game of Thrones persisted as he reprised the role in the fifth and sixth seasons, solidifying his status as an integral part of the series’ legacy.
Beyond the Seven Kingdoms, Wlaschiha’s talent has graced various other productions. He brought depth and complexity to the character of Sebastian Berger in the TV series Crossing Lines from 2013 to 2015, showcasing his ability to embody characters with depth and nuance. More recently, he ventured into the eerie and enigmatic realm of Stranger Things, where he portrayed Dmitri Antonov, affectionately known as ‘Enzo,’ in the fourth season of the show. His seamless transition from fantasy to science fiction attests to his remarkable versatility as an actor.
