Big Stars Are Making Their Way To Amarillo, Texas For YC3

This year, the guest list for YC3 is phenomenal. I haven't been this excited about a guest list in a long time. There are several names listed in a recent press release, and they all excite me. First is a name that almost everyone will be familiar with.

The one and only Sylvester McCoy is slated to appear at this year's YC3. Yes, Sylvester McCoy. The Seventh Doctor in the original run of Doctor Who. Radagast The Brown from The Hobbit trilogy. Sylvester McCoy has been entertaining audiences in iconic roles for a long time. It can't be overstated just how exciting it is to have him in Amarillo.

In what is possibly the coolest teamup in Amarillo convention history, Sylvester McCoy will be joined by Sophie Aldred. She played the Seventh Doctor's companion, Ace. How often do you get to see the Doctor and his companion in Amarillo? Not often enough.

Also appearing this year will be Kat Cressida. She has done voice work for Dexter's Laboratory, Disney's Tarzan, and even worked on Avatar.

If you're a fan of Aliens, you'll love getting to see Mark Rolston and Jennette Goldstein. Both have impressive careers in sci-fi, horror, on-screen and doing voice work. Both have played iconic roles in many movies. These names are just the tip of the iceberg.

This year, YC3 will once again be offering a lot to gamers who attend the convention. They will also be stepping things up a notch. According to a press release, there will be the usual emphasis on casual and competitive gaming with more events scheduled this year than ever before.
