FACTS is bringing Brent Spiner (Star Trek / Outcast) to Belgium!

FACTS reveals first guest for its next October edition

With Brent Spiner, FACTS welcomes a sci-fi legend to its next Fall edition, on the 21st and 22nd of October, in Flanders Expo, Ghent. With the iconic roles of Data in Star Trek, Dr. Okun in Independence Day and the mysterious Sidney in Outcast, Brent Spiner has put his mark firmly on the sci-fi genre. And now, he’s ready for Belgium and its fans at FACTS. 

Although Brent Spiner has about 40 years of acting behind him, his most popular role is most likely that of Data in the Star Trek series. Sci-fi fans still applaud him for the role of the android in the Starfleet, which he performed beautifully from 1987 until 2002, a praise which only grew larger during the 50th anniversary of the series last year.

Most recently, he was Dr. Brackish Okun in both Independence Day (1996) and the sequel Independence Day: Resurgence (2016), and the mysterious and spine-shivering Sidney in Outcast (2016-2017). The latter is an adaptation of the comic book series of Robert Kirkman, who also created The Walking Dead.

FACTS is proud to welcome this great actor to its Fall edition, in Flanders Expo Ghent, on Saturday the 21st and Sunday the 22nd of October, 2017. Brent Spiner will be available for Q&A, signing sessions and photoshoot sessions on both days. Tickets & info: www.facts.be
