NorthEast ComicCon is thrilled to welcome internationally renowned actress originally from Australia, Gigi Edgley, whose breakout role was in the Science Fiction television series Farscape created by Jim Henson. Gigi was hailed as “One of the Sexiest Stars of the Universe” on the cover of TV Guide, and she will be appearing March 13-15 to meet fans, sign autographs and do photo ops, along with a limited opportunity for some fans to sing Karaoke on stage with Gigi at the Saturday March 14 concert afterparty, all happening at the Boxboro Regency Hotel in Boxborough, MA.

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.
