In an interview with the Deseret News, Salt Lake Comic Con co-founder Dan Farr mentioned that two celebrity guests who were in town for the FanXperience convention last weekend stuck around to see the Mormon Tabernacle Choir's Sunday morning "Music and the Spoken Word" Easter performance.

The two guests were Laurie Holden, known for her role as Andrea on AMC's TV-MA zombie series "The Walking Dead," and Karen Gillan, known as Amy Pond from the BBC's hit show "Doctor Who."

Holden tweeted two pictures from Temple Square to her 280,000 followers:

“They loved it," Farr said. "They thought it was fantastic — and both of them had asked about it. It wasn’t us reaching out to them.”
