GUEST: Gillian Horvath…

Is the pen mightier than the sword... Gillian Horvath is one of the people who can definitively answer that question!
Gillian Horvath

Highlander WorldWide is delighted to welcome back one of the show’s key writers and producers and friend-to-fandom, Gillian Horvath.

Gillian  considers herself a proud alumna of the University of Highlander.  In addition to her four years as Script Coordinator and then Associate Creative Consultant on the writing staff of the series, she was one of the writers (in partnership with Bill Panzer) of Highlander: Endgame, and the editor and driving force behind Evening at Joe’s, the book of fanfic-style stories written by cast and crew.

During the run of the series, Gillian also served as a consultant on the merchandising and tie-in novels, and as an unofficial liaison between fandom and the production, passing on online comments to the other writers and producers and squirrelling away copies of outtakes and cut scenes to show at conventions.  (Many of which later featured as lost footage on the DVD releases.)

In the years since Highlander, Gillian has continued to work as a writer/producer of sci-fi TV shows, many of them also filmed in Vancouver,.  Her favourites include Forever Knight (produced simultaneously with her tenure on Highlander), MythQuest (along with fellow HL alums Morrie Ruvinsky and Donna Lettow), Flash Gordon (with Highlander‘s James Thorpe and David Tynan), and Sanctuary (again with James Thorpe, and reuniting her with Peter Wingfield and Jim Byrnes).  In 2012, Gillian became Showrunner of Primeval: New World, the North American spin-off of the UK series Primeval.  Most recently, she served as co-Executive producer on the CW‘s reboot of Beauty & The Beast.
