Felicity Jones

Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Star of the first Star Wars anthology film, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Felicity Jones won over plenty of movie fans for her portrayal of Jyn Erso, the reluctant member of the Rebel Alliance who helped steal the plans to the Death Star. Jones reprised the role of Jyn for Lucasfilm's animated shorts, Star Wars: Forces of Destiny, which the studio began rolling out over the summer. Jones has also appeared in Inferno, The Theory of Everything, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Jones will be available for autograph signings on Friday of NYCC. She'll also be available for photo ops on Friday at 4pm.

Former Doctor Who companion and current co-star of Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, Karen Gillan has made the transition from traveling with the Doctor in a big blue box to playing the blue-skinned character of Nebula in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Gillan will reprise her role as Nebula in next summer's massive MCU team-up, Avengers: Infinity War, where the character will presumably face off with her father, the Mad Titan Thanos (Josh Brolin). She's also set to star in the followup to Robin Williams' beloved '90s action/adventure film, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

Gillan will be available for autograph signings on Saturday and Sunday of NYCC. She'll also be available for solo photo ops on Saturday at 4pm and Sunday at 1:30pm, as well as a part of the Guardians of the Galaxy trio photo op on Saturday at 2:30pm.
