Some big stars will be in Dubai next week.

Movie actor Antonio Banderas will be in the emirate on October 12, as will Game Of Thrones actress Maisie Williams.

The pair are attending a red carpet event for the television network OSN, what’s described as a “VIP gala evening and a glittering red carpet experience”.

A taste of Hollywood in the UAE is all in order to promote the pay-TV station’s 2016 exclusive programming line-up.

Other big names – including Arab icons Hayat Al Fahad and Ahmed Helmy - will appear at The Music Hall inside Jumeirah Zabeel Saray on The Palm Jumeirah that evening.

Expect some cool announcements to come from the occasion hosted by Bassem Youssef as 55-year-old Antonio promotes his latest small screen venture Havana quartet.

Currently in pre-production, the Shrek and Mask of Zorro actor plays a detective in Cuba.

Meanwhile Maisie, 18, who hails from Bristol in England, continues to plays Arya Stark in Game Of Thrones – a role she has been in since 2011.

2015 also saw her grace our TVs with a role as Ashildr in two episodes of Doctor Who.
