Held from Nov 23-25, Riyadh played host to its first ever ComiCon festival last week with an impressive list of TV, film and gaming stars from America and beyond descending into Saudi for the highly-anticipated event.
One of the event's highlights was hosting Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa (Aka Khal Drogo), who made sure to take time exploring the city with friends before headlining the sold-out event.
Touch down in Saudi:
Trying out some traditional Egyptian cuisine at a restaurant in Riyadh:
Got a chance to take @prideofgypsies to try some food from my motherland, Egypt, while we're here in Saudi Arabia. Even though we're not in Egypt, they had all my favorites! Then we went out to a desert called Thumama, which was just insane. Videos don't do it justice! P.s that dessert in the video was fucking UNREAL!!!!! It's called Konafa.... aka #CarbComa
Spending time at Najd Village:
Signing autographs at ComiCon Arabia:
Showing off some impressive fan art:
The real-life Aquaman, who is promoting his new movie Justice League, was joined at ComiCon Arabia by fellow Game of Thrones actor Pilou Asbaek who was thrilled to catch up with his fan base in the capital.
The actors were also joined by Patricia Sumersett, a voice-over actress most known for playing Zelda in the cult video game and, most recently, for being cast in the movie Mother! alongside Jennifer Lawrence.
Does anyone else have a serious case of FOMO?
