Film & Comic Con Birmingham, aka Collectormania 25 lands at the NEC in Birmingham on the weekend of 2nd and 3rd June 2018 and the Star Wars guests continue to stack up.

Our latest guests comes to us from the latest chapter of the saga, The Last Jedi.

In the 1990’s Ade & Rik continued their partnership with a new series called Bottom (1991), which ran for three seasons and became a major success on the live circuit. It was basically a live sitcom, liberally sprinkled with slapstick humour, and the pair did 5 long tours between 1993 and 2003. Simultaneously, Adrian established himself as an actor, doing two improvised TV films under the Screen One and Screen Two umbrella, with director Les Blair: Screen Two: Honest, Decent and True (1986), and Screen One: News Hounds (1990) (winner of the BAFTA for best single drama).

He was a regular in the hospital drama Holby City (1999) from 2005 – 2008. He took the lead in a drama documentary about the Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster in the series Surviving Disaster (2006), and appeared as Henry Austen in the TV movie Miss Austen Regrets (2008), the film Blood (2012), and the drama series Prey (2014). But his most notable dramatic role to date is that of Count Rostov in the BBC series War & Peace (2016). He appeared in Star Wars: The Last Jedi as Captain Peavey (2017).

Outside of his acting career Edmondson is also a gifted amateur chef, and was a finalist in the 2009 season of Hell’s Kitchen, and was the champion of Celebrity Masterchef in 2013.
