Face Off, Syfy’s unscripted special effects makeup competition, will return for its fourth season on January 15, 2013. And it will once again feature a Who’s Who of Star Trek names. McKenzie Westmore, who acted in Insurrection and on Voyager, and, as a child, was as an extra in two episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, will return as the host of Face Off. Also back will be her father, Star Trek’s award-winning makeup guru Michael Westmore, who joins the series full-time as the official contestant mentor. And then there’s Neville Page, head creature designer on Star Trek (2009), who’ll once again settle into a judge’s chair.
The season-four premiere will find the contestants on the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California, for a challenge in which they must craft an original alien queen. For another challenge, they must create an original Goblin King. The guest judge? John Rhys-Davies. The veteran character actor is best known for his performances in Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and Trekkers will recall that he played Leonardo da Vinci in the Voyager episodes “Scorpion” and “Concerning Flight.”
