I hadn’t even heard about this until I read this article…
From the Niagara Falls Review:
It was William Kircher’s second visit to Canada.
The New Zealand actor, best known for his role as the dwarf Bifur in the The Hobbit trilogy, was one of the celebrity guests at the inaugural Fan World event held jointly in Niagara Falls, Ont. and Niagara Falls, N.Y.
“I went to a fan convention in Winnipeg. It was a little chilly and grey,” he recalled Saturday as he signed autographs for fans at the Canadian venue at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.
“Niagara Falls is fantastic. Such a beautiful place. I’m making my wife jealous right now because she’s still in New Zealand and when you see Niagara Falls, you really should see it with a loved one.”
Kircher enjoys meeting with fans of his work.
“It’s an adventure for me. I travel all over the world.”
