G-G-G-Gia!!!! I’m thrilled to be reprising my role of Gia Goodman in the Veronica Mars movie!!! It’s gonna be very juicy. Veronica Mars has a special place in my heart because it was my first big acting job (!!!!!!) and it was also one of the most lovely on-set experiences you could ever ask for. This will truly be an awesome shoot, not only because we all get to be reunited (can’t WAIT!) but because of the revolutionary way this all was able to come to life! Thank you, thank you, thank you to Rob Thomas, Kristen Bell, Kickstarter, and most of all, to you, our AMAZING FANS, for making it happen. I’m honored to be a part of it!

The series averaged between 2.2 million and 2.5 million viewers in its two-year run on the now-defunct UPN and final season on The CW. Those modest numbers are overshadowed by the intense fan devotion that has kept dreams of a movie alive.

Early-on in it’s inception, the “Veronica Mars” Kickstarter project began with series creator Rob Thomas along with the series stars Kristen Bell, Ryan Hansen, Jason Dohring, and Enrico Colantoni, now has raised over $5.5 million and production on the film has already began, with a release eyed for early 2014.
