UPDATE: Just five days after APCC announced her as one of the convention guests, Holland Roden says she won’t be coming after all. Coming in the wake of Hayley Atwell’s cancellation, we’re now wondering if Millie Bobby Brown and Nicholas Hoult will make it after all.
Hey guys Bc of an obligation with work, I won't be able to make it to Manila in August:/ BUT! I hope to see all of you soon @AsiaPOPComicon!

She was meant to come to Singapore last year as part of the ill-fated All TV Show Con, which was ultimately cancelled. Instead, Teen Wolf actress Holland Roden is belatedly making it to our part of the world for AsiaPOP Comicon a.k.a. APCC 2016, in Manila.
Roden, best known for her role as the banshee Lydia Martin in Teen Wolf, is essentially the replacement for Hayley Atwell. The Agent Carter actress had to cancel her scheduled APCC 2016 appearance, due to a conflict with her shooting schedule for her new show Conviction.
It’s not the first time APCC has seen cancellations – both Aquaman Jason Momoa and Agent Carter’s Chad Michael Murray had to cancel last year due to scheduling conflicts. To be fair, the more high profile the star, the busier their schedules tend to be.
Roden, 29, will join Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown in headlining APCC 2016. Here’s hoping for more high profile guests to be announced!
