Phoenix Comicon is just around the corner, but there’s always room for one more guest. Chase Masterson, who played the beautiful Bajoran saloon girl Leeta on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, has been added to the list of celebrities at the event, Jan. 23-25 at the Mesa Convention Center.

“Chase has worked in everything from film noir to sci-fi to dramas like ER,” said convention director Matt Solberg. “She’s loved by fans, and we love having her with us.”

Her career got a jump-start when she worked on DS9, leading to her playing the green Orion girl in the fan-produced film Star Trek: Of Gods & Men. She’s also appeared on General Hospital and Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles. Fans may also recognize her for her roles in the Sci Fi Channel’s Manticore with Star Trek: Voyager’s Robert Beltran and Terminal Invasion opposite Bruce Campbell.

“Chase is a versatile actress and obviously one to watch,” said Joe Boudrie, programming director for Phoenix Comicon.

The convention will also be showing Masterson’s award-winning film noir, Yesterday Was a Lie. The film features another Phoenix Comicon guest, Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca in the Star Wars films). The story follows Hoyle (Kipleigh Brown), a girl with a weakness for strong drink but a sharp intellect, as she trails a reclusive genius (John Newton). With only Chase’s character and one other loyal partner (Mik Scriba) as allies, Hoyle faces a world that grows progressively more surreal.

“Movies and previews are one of the joys of Phoenix Comicon,” Solberg said.

The convention is Jan. 23-25 at the Mesa Convention Center, with a Thursday preview night. It is billed as Arizona’s largest multimedia, popular arts convention, focusing on comic books, anime, gaming, movie, and TV. The Comicon presents a full weekend schedule of guests and programming for hobbyists by attracting the top segments of the comics, anime, and gaming worlds.
