For the second year in a row, die-hard fans of the “Harry Potter” series will have the opportunity to gather at LeakyCon 2011 along with special appearances from some of the loved series’ actors.
Irish actress Evanna Lynch who plays Luna Lovegood, and Chris Rankin who plays Percy Weasley are some of the biggest names that will be present at the event.
LeakyCon is taking place at Orlando, Florida July 13-17 and is set to be expecting 3,400 fans, costing $200 per registration.
“It’s a Harry Potter convention, mass movie viewing, park attending and general gathering put on by the Leaky News section of the authoritative All Things Potter site, The Leaky Cauldron,” reported the Orlando Sentinel.
“I’m so excited to be attending LeakyCon 2011 and spending the weekend with some of
the world’s biggest Harry Potter fans,” Lynch said. “Especially as I am one of them!”
