That is absolutely not the case. The actors are being paid their main fees by
the convention, for the convention, has nothing to do with the screening. They
were offered a *small stipend* to also show up at the screening. Again, I
can't break the confidentiality of the actors, but I can say that if every
person who came paid about 2-3 pounds, it would cover the whole nut.

Which has nothing to do with the fact that Wolf *cannot* charge for this
screening, which was set aside to be free for the fans, and as far as I know,
will not be allowed to do so.
