Syfy’s Lost Girl is Coming to Comic-Con!

Be the first to meet the the cast of Syfy’s highly-anticipated new drama series, Lost Girl on Friday, July 22 at 7:30pm room 24 ABC at Comic-Con. The series has electrified viewers around the world with smashing debuts.  Recently aquired by Syfy, Lost Girl is anticipated to be the next supernatural craze in the US.

A limited edition of the Lost Girl comic book, a prequel to the series, will be given out at this year’s Comic-Con panel.

Lost Girl stars supernatural seductress Bo (played by Anna Silk/The Ghost Whisperer), a Succubus (a powerful female entity in folklore) who feeds off sexual energy. Emmanuelle Vaugier guest stars as “The Morrigan”, the leader of the Dark Fae.

Both Anna and Emmanuelle will be leading the panel at Comic-Con along with Executive Producer, Jay Firestone (Prodigy Pictures) and Creator, Michelle Lovretta.

About Lost Girl
Raised by human parents, Bo had no reason to believe she was anything other than the girl next door — until she “drained” her first boyfriend to death.

Bo has since hit the road alone and afraid. She discovers she is one of the Fae, creatures of legend and folklore, who pass as humans while feeding off them in secret, as they have for millennia. She is faced with choosing an allegiance between the Dark or Light Fae clans. Bo decides to take the middle path between humans and the Fae while embarking on a personal mission to unlock the secrets of her origin, protecting humans along the way.

Lost Girl co-stars Kris Holden-Ried as Dyson, a shape-shifting Fae, homicide detective and Bo’s love interest; Ksenia Solo as Kenzi, Bo’s human confidante and street-smart survivor, Zoie Palmer as Lauren, a human doctor who competes for Bo’s heart; Rick Howland as Trick, the mysterious owner and bartender at The Dal Riata tavern, with a secretive past that is yet to be unlocked, and K.C. Collins as Hale, a handsome male “Siren” who is the eternal bachelor, ultimate wingman and Dyson’s partner on the force.
