Ryan: Corset, Captain And Conventions

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

While Jeri Ryan has good memories of her days on Star Trek: Voyager, not everything about with her time there was positive.

Initially, Ryan was hesitant to take on the role of Seven of Nine due to fear of being typecast. “That was a huge concern for me when I signed on initially,” she said. “My agent came to me three times with this role, and I kept passing. I kept saying, ‘Absolutely not!’ I wasn’t a Star Trek fan. I never watched it. All I knew was that the actors are pigeonholed and that’s all they do. It was so early in my career I didn’t want to kill it.”

Ryan: Looking Forward

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

Although Jeri Ryan enjoyed playing Seven of Nine, Endgame meant the end of thinking about the character as far as she was concerned.

Ryan is not the type of person to speculate on the future of characters once she is done portraying them. “That’s not the way my imagination works with the characters that I’ve played,” she said. “Seven is a character that I loved, but I don’t necessarily want to make it up in my head, what’s going on with her now. Endgame sort of ended it for me. That was the last chapter and the book closed for me at that point.”

Ryan: Voyager Pluses And Minuses

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

Even though Star Trek: Voyager’s Jeri Ryan worried about typecasting as a result of working on the show, she loved her time on the show including her relationship with her co-workers, but certain elements of the series finale didn’t work for her.

When Ryan thinks about Voyager, the first thing on her mind was that catsuit. “The costume,” she said. “They didn’t let me keep the cat suit. I would have loved to have burned it; not so much the cat suit as the corset that was under it. But, no, they didn’t let me have that. I do, however, have an alcove. I figured, “That’s the least you can give me! Give me my alcove.’ So I have it in my game room.”

Mulgrew: The Arrival of Seven of Nine

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

Although Kate Mulgrew had no problem with Jeri Ryan, Ryan’s character and why that character was added to Star Trek: Voyager was a problem for Mulgrew.

From a woman’s viewpoint, having a character that she knew was added as “eye candy” was tough for Mulgrew to accept. “I found that that was hard, Jeri notwithstanding,” said Mulgrew. “Certainly, I could see with my own eyes that she was a va-va-va-voom and beautiful-beautiful bombshell of a girl. Sexuality was brought into Voyager, and that’s what I resented. I chose not to use sexuality.”
