The Gypsy, creator and Executive Director of TOPCON GEEK EXPO announced today that Debbie Rochon and Tiffany Shepis will be celebrity guests at the 2015 event.
Debbie Rochon is best known for her work in over 200 independent horror movies and counter-culture films. Debbie has starred in dozens of horror movies and has gained cult stardom worldwide. Although she is mostly associated with creepy features and thrillers because of her evenlyshaped, dark-haired appearance on and off camera, she has garnered acclaim for her turns in comedy and drama. Debbie is as equally drawn to broad, absurdist comedy as she is to deeply dramatic, horror roles. She enjoys creating complex and off-kilter characters for the screen.
“I love working, that’s the bottom line”, Debbie said. And her fans are grateful that she does. In September, 2013 at the BUTFF in Breda, Holland, she received a special surprise at the awards ceremony, the Exult Fan appreciation award, exclusively designed for her by Herman van den Broek.
Debbie Rochon has made well over 200 films; These are some of her most dramatic and celebrated movies:
This was the most recent in a very long list of awards and accomplishments, starting in 1994 with the Hubcap Awards founder Joe Bob Briggs crowning her runner-up Best Actress of the year for her work on Abducted II: The Reunion. In 1995, she was recognized for her work as the conniving television producer in Broadcast Bombshells, winning the Barbarella Award. In 2002 Rochon was crowned “Scream Queen of the Decade” (1990–1999) by Draculina magazine. She also received Best Psychette Award 2002 (Best Female Psycho in a Movie) for her work in American Nightmare. In 2011, she won The Golden Cob Award for her work in Alien Vengeance and she was named Best Actress Award at the Macabre Faire Film Festival 2012 for her role in The Tell Tale Heart. She was inducted into the B-Movie Hall of Fame in 2004 and has won over a dozen more awards for her film work.
Debbie is bringing the fans more than just herself to TOPCON GEEK EXPO 2015, she is also bringing “Model Hunger” which is her full cinematic dirctorial debut. The film stars Lynn Lowrey and Tiffany Shepis. Tiffany is also a Celebrity Guest at this years Topcon and a Fan Favorite.
Tiffany Shepis is known to her fans as “The Princess of Scream” she has starred in over 100 movies with her most recent film being SyFy Channels cult classic “SHARKNADO 2”
She is a Voluptuous New York-born beauty and has earned her title of “Princess of Scream” as she often upstages more seasoned actresses and has some great dance grooves in her films!
These are just a few of the fun movies that Tiffany Shepis has starred in:
Tiffany can be seen at Cons like Chiller and will obviously make the move from indie schlock to mainstream films as time goes on and a good agent looks after her career. She has been involved in filmmaking since the ripe old age of 12 and has appeared in numerous videos with people like Lil’ Zane, Wu Tang Clan, Dexter Holland, Run DMC and Destiny’s Child video “Nasty Girl”, but this particular video was never released. Tiffany also shot a spot for Nintendo but it was pulled for being too (Janet Jackson-like) raunchy. She loves blood and gore but detests violence and is a very good reason why men prefer brunettes.
“We cannot express how excited we are to have Tiffany and Debbie at TOPCON GEEK EXPO 2015,” said The Gypsy. “Tiffany jumped at the chance to come do TOPCON stating that she was very excited about it. Debbie found out about TOPCON and cancelled a planned personal appearence at a fan convention in Germany this September to come and hang with TOPCON Fans. Now how awesome is that?”
The two actresses however are bringing more than just themselves to TOPCON GEEK EXPO 2015 they are also bringing the critically acclaimed not Horror Movie “MODEL HUNGER” to TOPCON for an exclusive showing. The movie marks Debbie Rochon’s Directorial Debut and has received rave reviews in private showings across the United States and around the world. Not yet ready for public release, a few TOPCON Fans will win an opportunity to attend the first regional showing of the film.
“The TOPCON Team was looking for a way to do something really special for our fans and when Debbie offered to give us the exclusive honor of showing the film at TOPCON – well how could we resist,” The GYPSY said. “TOPCON is a family event and though Tiffany and Debbie have fans of all ages from all walks of life, we had to figure out the best way to Honor Debbie’s gift to us and honor our fans.”
TOPCON will present the film as an “After Hours” TOPCON Event on Saturday September 19th at 10:00pm in the themed Panel Room known as “The Academy”. The room seating is limited so a random drawing of fans over 18 years of age that have pre-registered with a 3 Day Admission will be held. The GYPSY explains, “Forty-five very lucky TOPCON fans will get a unique opportunity; to be the first people in this region to view Model Hunger. And that’s not all – at the end of the film Debbie Rochon and Tiffany Shepis will be available for a Q & A session. Now how awesome is that?” The GYPSY asks. “It isn’t everyday that fans get a chance to talk to the director and one of the stars of a movie immediately after viewing it. As I said; forty-five very lucky TOPCON fans…”
“Forty Five very lucky TopCon Fans will get a unique opprotunity; to be the first people in this region to view MODEL HUNGER.
