Gigi Edgley

Gigi Edgley portrays Chiana, an impetuous young thief and the latest addition to Moya's crew.

Gigi Edgley had a very yin and yang upbringing. Her mother, a former Miss Australia, runs a 250-acre health retreat; her father was the "entrepreneur" of the family, he is a businessman and entertainment promoter.

Edgley is best known to Australian television audiences in the role of Erica Watson in Day Of The Roses and as Penny in the popular series Water Rats.

Edgley's numerous theatre credits include Kakos, Kill Everything You Love, The Rover, Boy's Life, The Land Of The Real Girls, Romeo And Juliet, The Caged Birds, Blue People, Princess And The Pea for the Brisbane Arts Theatre, Road, Picnic At Hanging Rock for the Twelfth Night Theatre and Les Miserables for the Gold Coast Arts Theatre.

From 1994 to 1995, Edgley trained at various workshops at the National Institute of Dramatic Art. She then moved to Queensland and in 1998 received a B.A. in Drama from Queensland University of Technology Academy of the Arts.

One year out of university and living with five students in a three-bedroom house, Gigi received her first Farscape script. Chiana was a role she was determined to win. She had six callbacks, was called in for optometry consultations for contact lenses, and yet still didn't know if she had the part. But, as we all know, she got the part and plays Chiana perfectly.
