Amanda Tapping has just informed us that due to the shooting schedule of Supernatural, she will be unable to attend StarFest this year. She regrets any inconvenience that this has caused her fans and wishes to express her love and hopes to be able to see everyone at next year’s StarFest. Anyone who pre-ordered her autograph or photo tickets can exchange them or have them refunded at the autograph table.

In order to fill the gap in the schedule caused by Amanda’s absence, we have booked Nicole de Boer to enhance our 20th Anniversary celebration of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Ms. de Boer will be attending all three days of StarFest (including the Meet & Greet) and will be onstage for questions and answers on Sunday.
