5D Competition - Win a personalised video greeting from actress Tracey Birdsall.

In the last few months it has been my pleasure to have got to know (just a teensy teensy little bit) the actress, Tracey Birdsall. Ever since news of the award winning film Rogue Warrior: Robot Fighter came the way of 5D HQ Tracey has been in the radar of yours truly. I can only apologise just how creepy that sounds - I know I have previous. Though in my defence the court restrictions and restraining orders have now thankfully gone away in regard to those other matters. I mean, just who knew that 278 emails a day to Helena Bonham Carter could be misconstrued as stalking? Well I bloody well know now, that's for sure... your honour.

Anyhoo, for a flavour of the Tracey's talent, friendliness and downright drop dead gorgeousness you could do worse than check out the previous two articles that appeared on this blog;

So you can imagine my delight when Tracey consented to offering herself up as a 5D competition prize (behave). However before I give you the details of the competition just have a look at a refresher of he career so far...........

"Tracey Birdsall is an award-winning American film and television actress recognised worldwide for her diverse and challenging roles - which recently earned her the esteemed Female Action Performer of the Year Award at the highly regarded Action on Film Festival for her role of Sienna in the recently Premiered and highly anticipated Science Fiction film Rogue Warrior: Robot Fighter(2016).

Birdsall has four feature films which will be released in 2016 alone: The lead of Sienna in the up-coming science fiction film Rogue Warrior: Robot Fighter (2016) opposite William KircherDaz Crawford, and Stephen Manley, the lead of Jenna in the up-coming comedy feature Who's Jenna...? (2016) opposite Bill SorvinoGarry Pastore, and Joseph D'Onofrio, playing herself in the up-coming Australian comedy Diary of a Fatman (2016), and the role of Dijanne in the up-coming science fiction film At the Edge of Time(2016). 

Tracey was also just cast as the female lead in Dance of the Blue Tattoo opposite Harry Lennix (The Blacklist (2013), filming soon in Gran Canaria. Birdsall can be seen opposite Barry Corbin once again in 2017 in The Time War (2017), a time travel film featuring a narration by Christopher Lee.

In 2014, Birdsall was named honorary Maverick Award Winner at the esteemed Action on Film Festival, and in 2015 the honorary Trailblazer Award at the Temecula Independent Film Festival for her contributions to the entertainment industry."


Tracey Birdsall has kindly agreed to offer herself up as a competition prize for 5D. However before you people out there get the wrong end of the stick with the majority  of the male population crashing the 5D website with requests, let me explain. 

The prize for the lucky selected entrant is a personalised video greeting from the lady herself. The names of all the entrants who correctly answer Tracey's question will be put into a hat (yes, it's really a hat) and the winner will be selected at random and then sent to Tracey to do her thing. The lady is incredibly busy at the moment but she will squeeze into her busy schedule the recording of the message and then forward it on to the lucky winner.

The closing date for entries is February 19th 2017.

The Question from Tracey is: In our upcoming sci-fi feature Rogue Warrior: Robot Fighter  (to be released by Sony), my character Sienna deals with the overtaking of the worlds by artificial intelligence. Given that everything these days is leaning towards artificial intelligence, to what degree are you concerned about this issue in the future? And why?

Please go to the 5D Competition section at to submit your answer. REMEMBER, you must include your email address when you submit your entry.

Good luck!
