We try to keep you updated with news on which projects she is currently working on and her upcoming appearances at conventions or other events. Since we have to rely on articles, interviews, convention panels and her Twitter/Instagram for that, the information might not always be complete.

With most conventions that were supposed to happen this year having been postponed to next year, several convention organizers are doing virtual events, and Creation Entertainment is one of them.
From June 25 through June 28, 2020, various Stargate actors will be having Meet and Greet events as well as Q&A panels. Amanda Tapping is scheduled to have a Meet and Greet on Sunday, June 28, 2020, at 10 am PDT, followed by a Q&A panel at 10:45 am.
The Meet and Greet is limited to 10 participants. Tickets are sold through an auction with the minimum bid starting at $50. Join the auction here.
The Q&A panel doesn’t have a fixed ticket prize, it’s a “pay what you can” system; the highest paying “tippers” will get prizes, including a 5 min 1-on-1 video with Amanda and gift certificates towards merchandise and any available autograph or photo op ticket at the Stargate Chicago 2021. It looks like the Q&As have a limited number of tickets too, so grab yours quickly!
Update: If you missed the Q&A, it got uploaded to youtube by a fan so you can now catch up on it there.
The Drama Class, an acting studio aiming to provide training to upcoming actors, is hosting a series of ‘Meet The Director’ workshops. These interactive workshops give actors an opportunity to learn about the career paths and processes of directors and to ask questions about their process. Three workshops will be taking place these next weeks: One with Peter DeLuise, one with Martin Wood and one with Amanda Tapping on August 15 at 1:00 pm PST. The online workshops are limited to 20 participants. You can find more info and register on The Drama Class’ website.
Amanda Tapping will join a webinar together with Juanita Peters and Brigitte Monneau on July 9, 2020, at 10:00 am PDT. They will talk about working in the screen-based industry in the time of Covid-19. You can find detailed information on the website of Women in Film and Television Vancouver.
Next month will be amandatappingfans.net’s first anniversary! Thank you to everyone who’s been supporting the website by sharing it!
We are still looking for ways to make this website even more interesting for Amanda Tapping fans. Our poll ‘What else do you want on this website?’ suggests a high interest in convention transcriptions, so those will be coming up this month.
Earlier this year, the most-wanted-item of the poll was a chat, which I then implemented in February. It hasn’t been used at all since, though, and I’m wondering why. Any ideas on what could help to get the chat active?
The website also has an inactive forum. Again, we’re happy to hear any ideas on how to make that more active.
If you have any other ideas for things you’d love to have on this website, participate in the poll and/or comment below.
Thank you to everyone who has participated in the contest! You can view all the submissions now on the submission page.
You can now vote for your favourites on the voting site!
There is a lot of lovely art there. If you, like me, struggle to decide on one favourite only, I’ve set it up so you can vote for several entries in each category. You may only vote once, though, re-voting counts as cheating and will result in withdrawal of the submission.
Voting ends on the 21st of June.
I’ve also updated the ‘prizes’ section of the contest info.
