Known to New Zealand audiences as Clara Oswald, Jenna continues to enthrall viewers over the world in her role as the Doctors current companion on the renowned and incredibly popular Doctor Who series, currently screening on Prime TV at 7.30pm Sunday.

Audiences will also recognise Jenna from her roles in Captain America: The First Avenger and various other TV Series including the well-known soap opera Emmerdale and Dancing on the Edge.

In the role of Clara Oswald Jenna has found herself in some unique situations including being hounded by dangerous group of ossified monsters, narrowly escaping a defrosted alien released on-board a 1983 Russian Submarine and heading to planet Akhaten to enjoy the Festival of Offerings.

“We’re so excited to have Jenna on board for this year’s Armageddon Expo,” says Beyond Reality Media Director William Geradts. “Jenna will be the first Doctor Who guest who is currently on the show to ever appear in New Zealand,” he says.

“She fulfils the iconic role of the Doctor’s Companion exceptionally. Jenna will be at the Auckland Armageddon Expo on Saturday October 25th only and will be available for both photograph and autographs with fans.” says Geradts.

Other TV guests that will be appearing at the Auckland Armageddon Expo include Richard Dean Anderson (MacGyver / Stargate SG-1), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), ‘Hacksaw’ Jim Duggan (WWE Wresting Hall of Famer), DJ Qualls (Supernatural / Road Trip), A J Buckley (Supernatural / CSI: NY), Michael Hogan (Battlestar Galactica / Teen Wolf), Graham McTavish (Hobbit Films / Outlander), Helen Slater (Supergirl / Smallville) and Matt Frewer (Max Headroom, Supernatural).

As well as the big names, huge exhibitors and the biggest display of costumed cult-fans that gather in one place, its events like the infamous Kamehameha competition, Cosplay contest and classic Fear Factor Challenge that keep the adrenalin flowing throughout the event.

From its inception in 1995, the Armageddon Expo has grown to become the largest fantasy event in Australasia. With shows in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Melbourne and Hamilton, the Armageddon Expo embodies the ever-growing pulp culture phenomenon.
