The cast of The Shannara Chronicles got to put on their smiles and talk to a room full of fans at SDCC for the show that’s set to premiere in January 2016. Stars Poppy Drayton, Manu Bennett, Austin Butler, Ivana Baquero, and John Rhys-Davies along with executive producers Al Gough and Miles Millar made up the panel. Last but not least was author Terry Brooks, who no doubt has been waiting for his chance to sit on a Shannara adaptation panel for decades.
One particularly hilarious moment came when John Rhys-Davis, who played the dwarf Gimli in the Lord of the Rings movies, had this to say to his on-screen friend and rival: “I would like to address this to a certain elf that I worked with on a different show…from dwarf to elf-king! Eat your heart out, Orlando Bloom.”
In addition to the panel, stars Austin Butler, John Rhys-Davies, and Manu Bennett signed posters for fans.
