Farscape  |  Actor profiles
Claudia Black

The actress behind Aeryn's ice and fire.

The beautiful Ms Black is one of Farscape’s core cast, having joined the series right at the start. An Australian born and bred, even before Farscape she was well known as an actress in her native country.

Her previous TV appearances have included two long-running parts in soaps A Country Practice, (1994) and City Life (1996). She has also been a guest actor on Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Xena: Warrior Princess and BeastMaster.

British audiences will know her best from her two high-profile film roles - as ill-fated Shazza Montgomery in sci-fi survival horror Pitch Black, and Pandora in vamp flick Queen of the Damned.

Claudia’s exact age is a mystery, with guesses ranging from 1971 to 1974. She herself will only specify her birthday - October 11. She is best friends with Gigi Edgley (Chiana), the two of them even going on holiday together during a break from filming Farscape.
