Some good news to follow the bad! Rose, David and Aly were today announced for the 2016 Dragon Con. The convention is held in Atlanta, Sep 2– Sep 5. We’ll update you as soon as we get any tickets/photo ops information…
Dragon Con (previously Dragon*Con and sometimes DragonCon) is a North America multigenre convention, founded in 1987, which takes place once each year in Atlanta, Georgia. As of 2014, the convention draws attendance of 63,000, features hundreds of guests, encompasses five hotels in the Peachtree Center neighborhood of downtown Atlanta near Centennial Olympic Park, and runs thousands of hours of programming for fans of science fiction, fantasy, comic books, and other elements of fan culture. It is operated by a private for-profit corporation, with the help of a 1,500-member volunteer staff.
Rose and her iZombie co-stars are now at the San Diego Comic-Con, where they will attend a string of events leading up to the big panel at 5:00PM. We have the first video of Rose, where she shows off her look! She looks as stunning as always… Keep checking back later for HQ photos!
FYI: The cast just finished their fan signing! We will add photos to our gallery as soon as we find any. We are currently sharing a lot of fan taken photos on our twitter account, so make sure you check it out here.
As most of you are probably aware of, the annual San Diego Comic Con is held this weekend! Rose is set to attend for her third year in row. The SDCC weekend has become a big one here at Rose McIver Online and in the Rose community, and we can’t wait for it to start! Photos, videos, information… All to be expected – and in big batches 😉 While we eagerly await the convention, we decided to warm up by taking a look at the last two years’…
San Diego Comic-Con International is a multi-genre entertainment and comic convention held annually in San Diego, California. It was founded as the Golden State Comic Book Convention in 1970 by a group of San Diegans, which included Shel Dorf, Richard Alf, Ken Krueger, and Mike Towry; later, it was called the “San Diego Comic Book Convention”. The name, as given on its website, is Comic-Con International: San Diego; but it is commonly known simply as Comic-Con or the San Diego Comic-Con or “SDCC”. It is a four-day event (Thursday–Sunday) held during the summer at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California. On the Wednesday evening prior to the official opening of the event, there is a preview for professionals, exhibitors, and select guests pre-registered for all four days.
(Photo left: Rose at the Batman 75th Anniversary And ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ Unveil ‘Cape/Cowl/Create’ Art Exhibit at SDCC. More photos here.) When it was announced Rose would attend the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con, the excitement was big. They were currently working on the first season of iZombie, and fans were looking forward to receive more information about the upcoming show. It was apparent that it already had many fans, even before the pilot episode had aired! Rose went to San Diego with her co-stars David Anders, Rahul Kohli, Robert Buckley and Malcolm Goodwin, and the show creators Diane Ruggiero and Rob Thomas.
In their iZombie panel we learned a lot of fun facts, such as; Rose was the 100th actress to audition for the part! We also found out more about the show premise, the weekly format and how Rose found it easy to play a zomibe, but difficult to play a med student because of the vocabulary. The reviews were clear; this was a group of actors with a lot of charm, and they did amazingly at building up the hype around the show.
We were also given a galore of photos, making the weekend even better! Rose attended many different events during the convention, even a couple of portrait sessions. She wore different outfits to almost all of them – let’s take a look at her 2014 SDCC looks…
(In the 4th photo, Rose is wearing a Carlo Pazolini Handbag in black/white, a Sans Souci Blue & White stripe skirt and a AQ AQ Monica Halter Crop Top with Racer Front.)
It’s safe to say she looked stunning in all of them. But which of her 2014 looks were your favorite? Vote below…

Rose’s second San Diego Comic Con was held almost a month after the season finale of the first iZombie season in 2016. By then, iZombie had built up quite an impressive fanbase, and everyone was buzzing for the convention to kick off! And what an amazing start to the weekend they got… The cast attended the MTV Fandom Awards in San Diego the day before the convention, where they picked up the award “Best New Fandom”. (To the right: Photo of Rose dedicating the award to the fans. All photos of the cast accepting it can be found in our gallery here.)
And then the fun began! Unlike in 2014, Rose only attended the convention on one day (July 10). But oh did she keep busy! She managed to attend the iZombie panel and fan signing, appeared at SiriusXMs EW Radio Show, was in the Photo Booth and did a total of 3 different portrait session, visited the Nintendo Lounge on the TV Guide Magazine Yacht, and last but not least: the Warner Bros. Television’s Comic-Con 2015 Cocktail Media Mixer (with Leah Pipes from The Originals and Emily Bett Rickards from Arrow). And then there was all the interviews… (you can check out screen captures from pretty much all the interviews Rose made in our master post here)
One kind soul uploaded the entire iZombie panel to youtube for us, so that we who were sadly stuck on the other site of the world and couldn’t attend in person, could watch it! If you haven’t seen it before, make sure to check it out below… And if you have, maybe rewatching it as we wait for this year’s iZombie panel could be fun?

After attending the OZ Comic-con in June, and then the San Diego Comic-Con in July, Rose will attend the Super Toy Con in Las Vegas this August! She’ll be there on Saturday and Sunday, August 6th and 7th. You can already purchase your photo op or autograph is you’re lucky enough to be in the area, so make sure you head over to their official website here before it’s sold out. Her iZombie co-stars David Anders and Malcolm Goodwin will attend as well!
Super Toy Con returns to Las Vegas August 5-7, 2016. Now the largest diecast, toy, comic and pop culture convention in Las Vegas, the 3-day extravaganza is being relocated to the Orleans Arena. This state-of-the-art venue is three times the size of our previous show, allowing for more entertainment and content to be added, but most importantly more space for the 10,000+ attending collectors to take in and experience all that the Super Toy Con has to offer.
Source | Fans of CW procedural/mild horror/dramedy iZombie have double the reason to get excited for the upcoming Oz Comic-Con event in Melbourne as Kiwi actress and show star Rose McIver has been newly announced on the line-up alongside previous inclusion and co-star David Anders.
McIver has been heading up iZombie since its premiere last year, but had been active for several years leading up to her casting, having made her mainstream feature debut in the 2009 cinematic adaptation of acclaimed novel The Lovely Bones. She also appeared on shows such as Xena: Warrior Princess, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Legend Of The Seeker, as well as being a series regular on Power Rangers RPM and recurring guest on Masters Of Sex and Once Upon A Time.
Fans will have the chance to get a photo with both McIver and Anders as part of the iZombie Duo photo package, while tickets are also available to join the pair at an iZombie fan dinner.
For the uninitiated, the show is loosely (loosely) based on the limited comic-book series of the same name published by DC Comics imprint Vertigo, and follows medical student-turned-zombie Olivia ‘Liv’ Moore (McIver) as she navigates her new un-life as one of the members of the shuffling (but sentient) dead after an outbreak at a party. Taking a job as an assistant to the county medical examiner (Rahul Kohli) to ensure steady access to the brains she needs to maintain her remnant humanity, Liv discovers the power to absorb memories and characteristics from the people whose brains she ingests. She thus uses her ability to aid put-upon detective Clive Babineaux (Malcolm Goodwin) in solving crimes while dealing with larger threats from a mysterious multinational corporation, her increasingly suspicious ex-fiancee, and a petty criminal-turned-undead overlord (Anders).
The pair of actors add to an already-impressive roster of drawcards, including one-time T-1000 (and harbinger of nightmares) Robert Patrick, Xena star Lucy Lawless, Arrow/Doctor Who/Torchwood star John Barrowman, Gallavant and Psych alum Timothy Omundson, “the other Winchester” Jake Abel, Stargate Atlantis star Rachel Luttrell and many others.
Oz Comic-Con hits the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre on 11-12 June. Tickets are available now.
