She did it!
Since her debut at Vancouver’s Vcon 30 back in October 2005, Luciana has appeared at more than a dozen conventions and fandom events — very small conventions in Europe as well as huge signing shows in the US. But now she’s in for something really big, the legendary Dragon*Con in Atlanta:
September 4-7, 2009 (Labor Day weekend)
Hilton / Hyatt Regency / Marriott Marquis / Sheraton
Congrats, Luciana! Attended by hundreds of guests and tens of thousands of fans each year, Dragon*Con is America’s “largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film”. The convention is so large that it’s held in four hotels at the same time, and there are so many guests willing to sign autographs that their booths cover an entire ball room. Regular attendees also like to call Dragon*Con the greatest four-day party they’ve ever been to.
Speaking of regular attendees: Over the past five years, Dragon*Con has always invited actors from the new Battlestar Galactica and other people whose work was related to show. This year is no different. In fact, Dragon*Con 2009 will have more BSG guests than any other convention to date:
Talk about impressive! In case you didn’t recognize all their faces, here’s the complete list of BSG people announced for Dragon*Con:
Edward James Olmos
Kevin Grazier (science advisor)
Jamie Chambers (designer of the BSG boardgame)
Michael Nankin (director of Kat episodes such as “Scar” and “The Passage”)
Dirk Benedict (1978 Starbuck)
With so many Battlestar cast and crew in attendance, it is very likely there will be one or even more BSG-related Q&A panels, just like in previous years. Now all we can do is wait another three months…
