The Foothills Comic Con has announced another big name coming to their show in October.

Danna Ormstrup, the Executive Director with the Foothills Fetal Alcohol Society, who put on the event, says she's a well known Canadian actress.

"We can officially say that we have Ms. Tantoo Cardinal coming. Folks will remember her from "Dances With Wolves." She was in "Legends of the Fall," and I also saw her recently in "Damnation" which was shot in Calgary.

Ormstrup says Cardinal will be donating back much of her appearance fee to the FFAS as it's a cause she believes in.

Fellow native actor, Telly James, who was at the FCC last year will also be returning this year and the Ormstrup says the plan is, he along with Cardinal will be hosting acting workshops and doing some exclusive talks with fans over the course of the day.

The Foothills Comic Con runs Saturday, October 13 at the Aldersyde Field House.
