Lord Can’t Buy us a Julie Benz, but Offered a Charisma Carpenter instead!

The Supanova team had sad news from Julie Benz today, who has to take a raincheck on her trip to Supanova. Julie personally wrote us this message for you, her fans: “Sorry I had to postpone my visit to Australia in April to attend Supanova. I was looking forward to meeting everyone. However, due to a recent work obligation, I cannot make it. Hope to see you soon!”

Julie has just been cast in a brand spanking new, as-yet-untitled CBS pilot, and even though we’ll have to wait until a later Supanova to meet Julie, we’re really excited about her new role. Julie will play the sister of a surgeon (Patrick Wilson of WATCHMEN fame) in the supernatural medical drama. Good luck with the new show, Julie; all of us at Supanova look forward to seeing you as soon as you can make it to Australia!

And because Supanova always does our best for our fans, we’re delighted to announce that the sparkling CHARISMA CARPENTER is shooting in to fill the vacancy in the Supanova Supa-Star galaxy. Charisma appeared as Cordelia Chase in 57 episodes of Joss Whedon’s BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, and a whopping 90 episodes of ANGEL. She also featured in VERONICA MARS and CHARMED, and recently stole the silver screen from the likes of Sly Stallone, Jet Li and Jason Statham in THE EXPENDABLES.

Charisma will be a guest at both the Brisbane and Melbourne expos, and is looking forward to her second visit to Supanova. Welcome back, Charisma!
