ACTOR GUEST ANNOUNCEMENT FOR POLARIS 25 - BEN BROWDER("FARSCAPE", "STARGATE SG-1") Also as announced at the Polaris 24 closing ceremonies, Polaris is pleased to announce that Ben Browder has accepted our invitation to be one of our Actor Guests at next year's Polaris 25. Though born in Memphis, Tennessee, Browder was raised in Charlotte, North Carolina. After graduation, he went to England to study acting at London's Central School of Speech and Theatre. He returned to the U.S. in 1989 as part of the cast of Peter Hall's Broadway production of "Merchant of Venice" starring Dustin Hoffman. He soon headed to Hollywood, where he was cast in a number of guest-starring roles, ranging from "Murder She Wrote" to "CSI: Miami" to the recurring character of 'Sam' in "Party of Five". In addition, he also appeared in several Movie of the Week productions including, "The Unauthorized Story of Charlie's Angels", Danielle Steele's "Secrets", and "The Fire Above", to name a few; as well as the blockbuster movie "Memphis Belle." Cast as the lost astronaut, 'John Crichton', in 1999, "Farscape" was his first lead role in a TV series. A critical and rating success, the series quickly became the signature show for the SciFi Channel and ran from 1999 to 2004. He went on to win two Saturn Awards for the series. Despite being cancelled abruptly in 2003, "Farscape" returned to the small screen in 2004 after a tremendous campaign by its fans. Mr. Browder won a third Saturn Award for the mini-series, "Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars". In 2005, his character, 'Lt-Col. Cameron Mitchell' took over as leader of SG-1, replacing Richard Dean Anderson's 'Gen. Jack O'Neill'. Most recently, Browder has been cast as lead in the upcoming sci-fi noir web series "Naught for Hire". Browder will play 'Nick Naught', an old-fashioned private detective in a futuristic world. Ben Browder will be attending the Blastoff Party, signing autographs, appearing onstage, and participating in our photo sessions. All guest appearances are subject to professional commitments. All event times are subject to change.
