Masterson: Beyond Deep Space Nine

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012

Although Chase Masterson loved her role as Leeta and her time on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, she found it hard to get past the character.

“Leeta is one of those wonderful roles that turned out to be more than the sum of its parts, and I’m grateful that Leeta has had that enthusiastic following,” said Masterson. “…But the bottom line is yes, it can be extremely limited and extremely frustrating.”

Masterson And Kerwin: R.U.R.

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine‘s Chase Masterson and director James Kerwin have a new science fiction project in the works, a remake of R.U.R., a Czech play originally written by Karel Capek.

Kerwin had been interested in the play since taking a college literature course. “I had studied the play in a college lit course, and was even in a production of it in Dallas years ago,” he said. “The story always stuck with me: a play which Karel Capek started writing in 1919, set fifty years from then, which predicted advances in biotechnology and served as an inspiration for masterpieces like Blade Runner and Metropolis. R.U.R. contains an important sociopolitical message, one which is as valid today as it was back in the early 20th century, and I was surprised that it had never been turned into a proper feature film.”

Masterson: Leeta, Rom, Trek Fans And Homeboys

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

In the second part of a two-part interview, Chase Masterson talked more about Leeta, including her sexuality, relationship with Rom and what Leeta might be doing today in the Deep Space Nine universe. Masterson also shares the good and the bad of Trek fandom and her other non-Trek projects.

Masterson sometimes gets comments about Leeta’s sexuality, but for a Dabo girl, Leeta was rather demure. “As far as being scantily clad during the run of the series, yes, of course, my Dabo girl uniform was meant to be sexy, but they purposely didn’t make it as overt as most of the other Dabo girls, and I’m glad.”

Masterson Answers Fan Questions

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

In the first part of a two-part interview, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine‘s Chase Masterson answers fan questions which include sexuality, favorite Deep Space Nine moments and her life outside of Star Trek.

Masterson came from an acting family so it was natural that she gravitated towards acting. “My mom was a theater director and actress while I was growing up,” she said. “I did my first play when I was five, and continued working throughout high school; instead of going to standard activities after school, or just hanging out with friends.”

Masterson: Playing Leeta Was A Blast

Friday, December 10th, 2010

Although playing Leeta was enjoyable for Chase Masterson, she wishes that she would have been allowed to bring more depth to her character.

Even though she was designed as “comic relief and eye candy,” Leeta had admirable qualities. “Leeta was written with many interesting qualities that were a blast to embody,” said Masterson. “As a Dabo girl she was playful, yet as a Bajoran she had a deep spiritual foundation. While she was fairly low on the totem pole at her job, she was willing to risk everything to stick up for her morals. And while Leeta was very devoted, she loved Rom with commitment and singular focus, she was no pushover.”

Chase Masterson: More Than Leeta

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

One of the frustrations of acting is that sometimes, if one does a character well, that’s all that anyone else sees, which makes getting different roles in the future harder for an actress.

Leeta was not just window-dressing, according to Chase Masterson. “…She was a study of opposites,” said Masterson. “As a Bajoran Dabo girl, she’s both fun and highly spiritual. She dresses sexily, but she’s smart enough to know how to approach Dr. Bashir. It wasn’t ‘hey, Baby…,’ it was more coy, sweeter.
