Humans star Dino Fetscher to make first convention appearance at Southampton’s Sci-Fi Ball in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust

The Sci-Fi Ball have announced Dino Fetscher as their first special guest for Sci-Fi Ball 25 – their 25th Silver Jubilee. A three-day celebration of Science Fiction which takes place 8 – 10 February 2019 at the Grand Harbour Hotel, Southampton, England.

Dino Fetscher is a Welsh actor who many will recognise from the brand new series of Channel 4’s Humans. Dino plays Stanley – the first major ‘Orange Eyed’ synth, who is tasked with looking after Laura (Katherine Parkinson) after she has her first meeting with the Dryden Commission.

Television credits include Russell T. Davies’ Cucumber and Banana, including an entire episode led by him and another actor, Alex Wayfield in ITV’s Paranoid and his West End theatre credits include As Is (Trafalgar Studios) and Ghost Stories (Arts Theatre). Film credits include Now You See Me 2.

This will be Dino Fetscher’s first ever convention appearance. He will be attending the entire weekend signing autographs, posing for photographs with attendees, offering talks about his insights into what it was like to play a synth in Humans as well as mingling at the many different parties and activities that this family-friendly convention has to offer.

The not-for-profit convention brings together fans of Science Fiction and Fantasy to ensure they have a truly out of this world weekend. Ticket holders can enjoy a party every evening, attend special guest panels, pose on fan-built and actual props and sets, collect autographs and have their photograph taken with the stars, meet fully functioning Daleks, purchase many galactic collectables, compete to win prizes through many competitions, including the Sci-Fi Ball’s grand cosplay competition, play retro arcade style and table-top games,  enjoy a sumptuous three-course black-tie dining experience, including cabaret, an exclusive cocktail party with the stars of the small and silver screen and a whole host of other activities for the whole family to enjoy.

More exhibits, activities and special guests are yet to be announced.
This February saw the Sci-Fi Ball celebrate twenty-four years of raising money for charitable causes by celebrating Science Fiction, bringing their total donations to the Teenage Cancer Trust to over £49,000.
