In the clip, the 42-year-old Chicago native is first seen battling zombies as her Walking Dead alter-ego Connie before cutting to a far more relaxed real-world setting where she signs "I absolutely cannot wait to meet my fans from Dubai" in American sign language.  
In light of Ridloff's addition to the line-up, the virtual comic con has partnered with Dubai's Rashid Center for The Determined Ones.
