Every week we’ll be announcing cast members for #ThePsyBorgs! You won’t even see her coming! She’s the nefariously speedy #SlapDash and she’s got an axe to grind with #JohnnyCarbon and the rest of the #Borgs, and we’re all so happy to have Emma Houghten on board as SlapDash!
A vicious and vengeful femme fatale with a serious bone to pick with the #PsyBorgs, SLAPDASH has the ability to laser-phase in and out of our plane of existence to anywhere she chooses in the cosmos.
Slapdash is an expert in hand-to-hand combat and master tactician, always one step ahead of #JohnCarbon and his PsyBorgs.
Emma Houghton is an Edmonton born actor/singer/dancer and a recent graduate of the BFA Acting program at the University of Alberta. She was last seen onstage in Alberta Theatre Project's production of The Last Wife in Calgary, which meant she was conveniently in town to audition for The PsyBorgs! When Emma is not hustlin' for dem jobs, she can be found giving tours of the Alberta Legislature, reading the collected works of Jon Krakauer, or lifting heavy things. "Playing a villain is always something I've wanted to do and very rarely do I get the chance. I am absolutely psyched to have the opportunity to bring a character like SlapDash to life, and to get to do it with such an amazing team! From my first watch of the PsyBorgs I was hooked, and my only thought was, "I MUST make this happen." #StoryhiveYYC #YYCfilm #indiefilm #webseries #scifi #80s #90s #nostalgia #GIJoe #gogopowerrangers #80scartoons #TimeCop #Commando #VHS #vhsishappiness #canadiana #directtovideo #casting #canadianfilm #albertafilm
