marinaMarina Sirtis, Counselor Deanna Troi on “Star Trek: The Next Generation”, will be at the Grand Rapids Comic-Con on October 16-18 at the DeVos Place in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

 Marina Sirtis was born to Greek parents who did not want her to become an actress. As soon as Marina completed high school, she applied to the Guild Hall School of Music and Drama secretly. After her graduation, she worked in musical theater, repertory and television. In 1986, she moved to Los Angeles, California. For six months, she auditioned for parts but was unsuccessful. Just before she planned to go back home, she got the part of Counselor Deanna Troi in “Star Trek: The Next Generation” (1987).

 “Star Trek is one of the most enduring series in the history of nerd television,” said event director Mark Hodges, “and Marina was an important cog in the story. We are glad she will be appearing in Grand Rapids.”

 The third Grand Rapids Comic-Con will be held on October 16-18, 2015, at the DeVios Place in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Other Hollywood celebrities include. For more information go to www.grcomiccon.com.
