Third U.S Guest Announced For Sci-Fi Scarborough
Sci-Fi Scarborough have announced their third American star to appear at SFS 2016 in the shape of the wonderful Patricia Tallman.
She is best known as Lyta Alexander, the head of the Psi Corps in the epic series Babylon 5 and has also appeared as many different characters in Star Trek franchises of The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and Voyager as well as great genre films such as The Army Of Darkness and the remake of Night Of The Living Dead.
Steve Dickinson Co-Organiser said:
"We had been thinking of getting Pat for a long time and, using her obvious Psi Corps powers, she knew that we were thinking that so she replied straight away and agreed to come over!"
"Once again, it’s great news for the town as we are getting more and more recognised as an International destination for Convention legends."
Patricia Tallman has been acting professionally in theatre since she was 15 years old. At Carnegie-Mellon University, Pat received her BFA in Acting as well as the prestigious 'Outstanding Achievement in Acting Award'.
With a strong following in the Sci-Fi and Horror genres, she has travelled all over the world speaking about the entertainment industry.
Equally important to Patricia are her roles of mother to son her Julian, as well as her fund-raising activities for the children of Penny Lane, a home for abused children www.beasanta.org.
Through her tireless efforts within the science fiction and horror community, Pat and her fans have contributed more than $250,000 to Penny Lane over the past several years, the bulk of which transformed the CARE Computer Lab dream into reality.
Dedicated Patricia Tallman fans make a hobby of trying to spot her in her many stunt performances.
An extremely athletic and former fearless member of the Stunt Woman’s Association of Motion Pictures, Pat has tumbled, slid and taken punches for the likes of Laura Dern (in Jurassic Park), Gates McFadden (in “Star Trek: Generations”), Geena Davis (in The Long Kiss Goodnight) and Laura Prepon (in Karla).
Pat’s roots as a stage actress have never left her, and she continues to tread the footlights in Los Angeles whenever parenting, & film and TV work allow her the time. Her latest projects include Dead Air, a psychological horror film directed by Corbin Bernsen for which her performance is getting great reviews.
Sci-Fi Scarborough 2016 is on the weekend of the 9th & 10th April next year and tickets are available from the Spa Box Office or for more details: www.scifiscarborough.co.uk
