In addition to hosting over seventy Star Trek celebs at their annual Las Vegas Star Trek Convention, running this week from Thursday through Sunday at the Las Vegas Hilton, Creation Entertainment is gunning for the Guiness World Record for the “largest gathering of people dressed as Star Trek characters.”
Those curious about why Jeri Ryan appeared as Sonya Blade in a recent Mortal Kombat YouTube video got an answer from the actress who explained via Twitter what the purpose of the seven-minute clip was.
The short video was a movie pitch, said Ryan. “It’s not a game trailer. Actually was made for the director to sell WB on his vision for a reimagined MK [Mortal Kombat] film.”
Although Jeri Ryan has moved on to other projects, her memories of working on Star Trek: Voyager are good ones.
Seven of Nine was a outsider character, along the lines of Spock, or Data and that was part of what made her unique. “It was part of watching her looking at humanity from a different, outside perspective,” said Ryan. “She was trying to regain her humanity and relearn it, so she was very child-like in a way.”
Jeri Ryan, Star Trek: Voyager‘s Seven of Nine, will be appearing in a new ABC series this fall.
Body of Proof (formerly Body of Evidence) is a medical mystery series starring Dana Delany (Desperate Housewives, China Beach) as a neurosurgeon-turned-medical examiner.
Following in the footsteps of Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck, Chris Pine (James T. Kirk) will try his hand at playing Wall Street stockbroker Jack Ryan.
Ryan, created by author Tom Clancy, has appeared in a dozen novels, including The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger and The Sum of All Fears.
Jeri Ryan, best known to Star Trek fans as Star Trek: Voyager‘s Seven of Nine, has been cast in ABC’s Body of Evidence.
Body of Evidence features a “brilliant, tenacious” medical examiner, whose background as a neurosurgeon gives her a “unique and refreshing” crime-solving perspective, but puts her at odds with most of her colleagues. The main role has not been cast yet, but talks with Dana Delany (China Beach, Desperate Housewives) are ongoing.
Ryan, who has a recurring role on TNT’s Leverage, will play the city’s chief medical examiner, who is the boss of the main character of the show.
Star Trek: Voyager‘s Jeri Ryan appreciates her time on the show as Seven of Nine.
Years after Star Trek: Voyager finished airing, Ryan is still recognized for her role as the former Borg Seven of Nine and grateful for her continuing work after the end of the series. “I’m really lucky to have been given a role that was so beautifully written, that was so rich to play as an actor and which became an iconic character,” she said.
