Star Trek: Voyager Star to Appear at Sci-Fi Scarborough 2016
Garrett Wang, better known as Ensign Harry Kim in the US TV Series Star Trek: Voyager, will be at the event for the full weekend next year.
Co-Organiser Steve Dickinson said:
"To say we are pleased is a major understatement. Star Trek in all its incarnations is such a cultural touchstone for all fans of science fiction and the fact we have managed to get such a major actor from one of them is just really, really great news. The bar continues to be raised and we could not be happier for the event, the town and the convention attendees"
Born in Riverside, California to Chinese immigrant parents, Garrett Wang initially majored in Asian Studies at UCLA. Encouraged by a theatre professor at the university, Wang ultimately chose to pursue an acting career, appearing in the stage productions Porcelain, Model Minority, Woman Warrior, and A Language of Our Own.
His first onscreen performance was in the television series All-American Girl with comedian Margaret Cho. A year later, he appeared in the independent film Angry Café with France Nuyen, that same year, Wang was cast in Star Trek: Voyager.
Wang continued to find opportunities in independent film both during and after Voyager’s seven-year run, with roles in the films Hundred Percent, Ivory Tower, The Auteur Theory, and Demon Island. In 2005, he appeared in the Golden Globe-nominated miniseries Into the West.
He continues to be actively involved in theatre and film and is well renowned on the Convention circuit as a superb guest.
