Yes, you are seeing double. James and Oliver Phelps, The Weasley twins from “Harry Potter,” are coming to Seattle’s Emerald City Comicon this month.
The British twin actors who play Fred and George Weasley have just been added to the pop culture explosion that is ECCC March 30-April 1 at the Washington State Convention Center.
The Phelps boys were recurring characters in the decade-long HP franchise, featured in all eight of the films. They played the brothers of Harry Potter pal Ron Weasley.
The twins will appear at a fan panel which I will moderate on Sunday, April 1 at 1:15 p.m. They’ll also sign autographs and pose for photos during the weekend. The brothers are replacing fellow Potter actor Tom Felton who had to cancel his ECCC appearance after booking a film project. Stay tuned for more details.
