Hollywood stars Jamie Campbell Bower and May Calamawy.


‘Stranger Things’ star Jamie Campbell Bower, May Calamawy join MEFCC line-up

Actor Jamie Campbell Bower, who plays Vecna in “Stranger Things”, and May Calamawy are joining the celebrity line-up for the Middle East Film and Comic Con (MEFCC), organizers announced on Friday (February 10).

MEFCC, the region’s most iconic pop culture festival, is taking place at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) from March 3 to 5.

Bower will make an appearance on march 4 and 5. The UK-born actor, entertainer, songwriter, and artist has become embedded in the mythos of Harry Potter, The Twilight Saga, Mortal Instruments, Fantastic Beasts, and, as of 2022, Netflix’s most popular original series “Stranger Things}, playing Peter Ballard who transforms into the iconic Dungeons & Dragons villain Vecna.

Meanwhile, the Egyptian-Palestininan actress Calamawy is blazing new trails as one of Hollywood’s most exciting rising stars. Her breakthrough role came in 2019 as a series regular on Hulu’s Peabody-winning and Emmy nominated comedy series, Ramy, but you may know her better as Layla El-Faouly in Moon Knight, playing the wife of Oscar Isaac’s Marc Spector – an archaeologist who by season’s end transforms into what Marvel fans instantly recognized as the superhero Scarlet Scarab. The entire first season of Moon Knight is now streaming on Disney+.

Bower and Calamawy are on the official MEFCC celebrity line-up at Meet the Stars where fans can also get autographs or photographs with House of the Dragon’s, Matt Smith, Lord of the Ring’s, Gollum, Andy Serkis and C-3PO star, Anthony Daniels. Emirati pop star Alira will take the stage on March 5 from 5:30pm for an anime concert in English, Arabic and Japanese.

Tickets to MEFCC start at Dh299 for a three-day pass. Tickets are available on Platinumlist and Virgin Megastore. ICA/Expat Media
