Fans of Irish actress Victoria Smurfit will be charged €20 for an autograph at this weekend's MCM Comic Con event in Dublin.

The star - who will be coming dressed as her Once Upon A Time character Cruella de Vil - is among a host of sci-fi and fantasy actors appearing at the event, with different fees for autographs and photos.

While it will cost €20 for Ms Smurfit's autograph, it'll be €25 for fans to be pictured with her.

The Dubliner will be flying in from her base in LA for the event and her visit is listed as one of the top attractions at the MCM Ireland Comic Con which will be held at the RDS.

Victoria will joined on Saturday and Sunday by her Once Upon A Time co-star Kristin Bauer van Straten who plays Maleficent in the popular series.

Fans will have to pay the same fees for autographs and pictures with Game of Thrones stars Eugene Simon and Ian Beattie who play characters Lancel Lannister and Meryn Trant respectively.

Meanwhile, it will cost €10 for a photos with voice actors Lex Lang and Sandy Fox.

A spokesperson for the conference said it is "common practise" to charge fans for access to the high-profile guests.

Tickets for the conference start from €10 and more than 16,000 fans are set to descend on the RDS for the occasion.

Meanwhile, it was revealed yesterday that Victoria's childhood home on Dalkey's illustrious Coliemore Road has gone on sale with Christie's for a whopping €10.5m.

The Tudor-style house which overlooks Dublin Bay is currently the most expensive house on the market in Dublin. It boasts its own lodge house and a private harbour that has its own tidal swimming pool.

Earlier this year, the 40-year-old announced her divorce from her husband of 15 years, Doug Baxter.

The couple have three children together Evie Dorothy (10), Ridley Belle (7) and six-year-old Flynn Alexander.

It is believed the star is enjoying a holiday with her children in her hometown to coincide with her appearance at the conference.

She will also appear on TV3's Seven O'Clock Show tonight.
