Shreveport's comic con, Geek'd Con, is coming back for another big year in Downtown Shreveport. The show started in 2015, and has grown into one of the premiere events in the Shreveport-Bossier area. Not only that, the show has been the largest consistently active comic con style show in the entire state of Louisiana.

This year's event is this weekend, August 19th-21st, at the Shreveport Convention Center.

Geek'd Con is a mash-up of celebrity meet and greets, geeky shopping, cosplay, games, prizes, and fun. With more than 200 vendor booths set up, with vendors from across the US bringing collectibles, custom artwork, clothing, comic books, action figures, jewelry, and more.

Plus the cosplay contest, brought to you by the US Marines, will feature $2,500 in cash prizes!

At the 2022 edition of Geek'd Con, you can meet stars like Matthew Lillard, Skeet Ulrich, Jamie Kennedy, Clint Howard, and more. They will be there to sign autographs and take pictures with fans.

Also joining them will be science fiction icon Natasha Henstridge...

Natasha became a household name in her feature film debut Species, where she played the main character Sil. She reprised the role, kind of, playing a clone named Eve in Species II and Species III as well.

In addition to the Species franchise, Henstridge appeared in more thriller and action films like The Black Room, Deception, Maximum Risk, and John Carpenter's Ghosts of Mars.

But it wasn't all action and thrillers for Henstridge in theatres. She also starred in The Whole Nine Yards, The Whole Ten Yards, Bounce, and Dog Park, among other rom-coms. She also has an extensive TV career too.

On TV, Henstridge carried lead roles in She Spies, Eli Stone, Commander in Chief, and The Secret Circle. She currently appears as a regular in Diggstown. She has also appeared in the shows The Outer Limits, South Park, Hawaii Five-0, Beauty & the Beast, and CSI: Miami.
