CINCINNATI -- Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, known to "Game of Thrones" fans as Jaime Lannister, will be visiting Cincinnati this fall for the 2018 Cincinnati Comic Expo. 

Event organizers announced Coster-Waldau's appearance Tuesday. The expo runs from Sept. 14-16 at the Duke Energy Convention Center. 

Actress Cobie Smulders, best known for her roles on "How I Met Your Mother" and in Marvel movies, will also be appearing at the event, according to organizers.

Comic artists Rick Leonardi ("Cloak and Dagger," "Uncanny X-Men") and Thomas Grummett ("The New Titans," "The Adventures of Superman") will also participate in the expo. 

Organizers said they're also bringing back the Geek Prom: Midwest Muggle Fest at the expo, which sold out last year.
