The staff of Con Kasterborous would like to announce an addition to our guest list for 2014. In association with Lady Soliloque we would like to announce Gareth David-Lloyd. Gareth is the narrator for Lady S’s Enoch the Traveler series, and he’s also known as Ianto Jones from Torchwood. We hope you will all make Gareth feel welcome when he arrives at the Con this year!
Gareth was born in Newport South Wales. He first became interested in the arts at the age of six when he discovered “Hammer Horror” movies. He joined his first youth theatre at the age of 10 where he played a vampire in a play devised by the young cast. After playing a number of classic leads including “Henry V” and “Macbeth” in his teens, he won his first agent playing “Macheath” in “The Threepenny Opera” at the age of 21. Gareth’s first television appearance was with Stephen Fry in the television comedy “Absolute Power” as a Welsh soccer player.
It was three years later that he was cast as the dark and mysterious Ianto Jones in BBC Wales’ Dr. Who spin off “Torchwood” which earned him two more seasons and a Cardiff Bay shrine. Gareth’s post-Ianto projects include SyFy channel’s “Red Faction – Origins”, self- produced indy project “The Casimir Effect” and a second album with his prog-rock band Blue Gillespie.
Gareth is currently promoting his latest movie role, ‘I Am Alone’, and his involvement in Lady Soliloque’s Enoch the Traveler series.
