‘We are working with the convention to arrange for security that not only keeps me safe, but also all of you who come to see me,’ he continued. ‘I’m really sorry I have had to cancel my panel, and photo ops, this weekend. I will be signing later today once security has been arranged. Please check with the promoter, and social media, for updates on where and when I will be signing.’

Comic-Con organizers also used Facebook to announce the actor ‘will not be able to make his conference this afternoon’ (9 July). However, he did  hold a photo-op/autograph session with fans.
