We are thrilled to welcome Gigi Edgley to GnomeCon 2016. Originally from Australia, she is perhaps best known as Chiana on the critically acclaimed series Farscape. She had been cast for only one episode, but she quickly stole the hearts of fans, as well as the Farscape writers. The mischievous Chiana became one of the most popular – and at times controversial – characters in the series. As Chiana, Gigi earned a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress in a TV series.
She has also starred in countless film and TV series, including USA’s The Starter Wife, Rescue, Special Ops, Tricky Business, SyFy’s Showdown at Area 51, as well as Quantum Apocalypse, Carlotta, Newcastle, Black Jack, Stingers, Secret Life of Us, Beastmaster, Lost World, Water Rats and Day of the Roses.
The SyFY Channel and The Jim Henson Company asked her to host Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge. Fans can also see her in the sci-fi short Hashtag, and the film Nexus. Most recently, she guest starred on an upcoming episode of the Web series, Star Trek Continues.
Gigi has also delved into theatre, music, directing, producing, and creating original comic books.
