Gigi Edgley to be at Escape Velocity!

Actress Gigi Edgley, better known as Farscape’s ‘Chiana’ will be at Escape Velocity for its entire three-day run!

In addition to her role as Chiana, the street-smart Nebari from cult science fiction series Farscape, Edgley has an extensive list of film and television credits. You may know her from The Starter Wife, Rescue Special Ops, Tricky Business, Showdown at Area 51, Quantum Apocalypse, Carlotta, Newcastle, Black Jack, Peacekeeper Wars, Stingers, Secret Life of Us, Beastmaster, Lost World, Water Rats and Day of the Roses, and as host of Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge.

Edgley’s award nominations include the SyFy Genre Award for Best Supporting actress, the Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress in a television series, and the Maxim Award for Sexiest Space Babe!

Something we are very much looking forward hearing about is Edgley’s new short film project, Hashtag, which provides a “sleek, smart, and sexy view of a world where social media dominates every moment of our lives.” Currently in post-production, Hashtag raised an amazing $44,222 through Kickstarter in 2014, and there are plans to take the film to Sundance, Cannes and Toronto film festivals.

We are really excited that Gigi Edgley will be coming to Escape Velocity, and hope you are, too! Perhaps we will see a few Chiana cosplayers around the Gaylord Hotel this July.
