Get ready, sci-fi fans! The NorthEast ComicCon & Collectibles Extravaganza is set to welcome internationally renowned actress Gigi Edgley to its event on March 10-12, 2023. Edgley, who first rose to fame with her breakout role in the hit Science Fiction television series Farscape, created by Jim Henson, will be meeting fans, signing autographs, and doing photo ops at the Boxboro Regency Hotel in Boxborough, MA.
Edgley’s portrayal of the mischievous Chiana in Farscape was a standout performance, and quickly captured the attention of the show’s writers, producers, and fans alike. The character quickly became one of the most popular, and at times controversial, in the series. Her role in the show was so well-received that SyFy Channel and The Jim Henson Company also asked her to host Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge.
Gigi Edgley’s career extends far beyond her time on Farscape. She has starred in countless film and television series including FX’s Feud, USA’s The Starter Wife, Enuattii: Face off Designer’s latest feature, Diminuendo, Rescue Special Ops, Tricky Business, SyFy’s Showdown at Area 51, Quantum Apocalypse, Carlotta, Newcastle, Black Jack, Peacekeeper Wars, Stingers, Secret Life Of Us, Beastmaster, Lost World, Water Rats, Day of The Roses, Star Trek Continues and Nexus.
In addition to her acting career, fans of Edgley’s work will also be excited to know that she has recently voiced three characters for Justin Roiland’s new video game, High On Life. The game, which has just been released, is a thrilling adventure that sees humanity threatened by an alien cartel that wants to use them as drugs. Players must rescue and partner with charismatic, talking guns in order to take down Garmantuous and his gang and save the world. Edgley is a multi-talented artist, who also has an extensive history with The Jim Henson Company, beginning with her role in Farscape. She is a recording artist, creator of original comic books, director, and producer. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the Queensland University of Technology after entering in the auditions alongside hundreds of other candidates.
Gigi Edgley has also been promoting a feature film called Everything In Between Everything In Between, The story of an alienated teenager who learns to find meaning and purpose through the pain of love and loss. In which she plays Jay’s privileged but jaded socialite mother. Eighteen-year-old Jay has had enough of life. Twenty-eight-year-old Liz can’t get enough of it. And as Jay (Jordan Dulieu) stands on a cliff top contemplating putting an end to the meaningless fog of his existence, Liz (Freyja Benjamin) lands in town on the latest leg of her endless adventures backpacking the globe. After a sliding doors moment brings this unlikely pair together, they form a deep and immediate bond – much to the chagrin of Jay’s parents (Edgley & Martin Crewes).
Her team also raised over $44,000 on Kickstarter to fund a sci-fi short called Hashtag, and take it to Sundance, Cannes, and Toronto film festivals. Gigi was nominated for the Film’s Critic’s Circle awards for best lead actress in the feature Last Train To Freo, the SyFy Genre Award for Best Supporting actress, the Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress in a television series, and Maxim Award for Sexiest Space Babe.
Edgley also has a long list of theatre credits that include: Kill Everything YouLove, 4.48 Psychosis, The Rover, Boy’s Life, Romeo And Juliet, Road, Picnic At Hanging Rock and Les Miserables.
