Nana Visitor Interviewed

Nanavision, the official web site for Nana Visitor (Kira Nerys), has put up a transcript of a recent interview with the former DS9 actress in the Star Trek Monthly Magazine. In the interview, Visitor reveals that now, a year after the show ended, she now actually feels some relief it didn't go for more seasons:

"I have no idea how hard it was when I was doing it," she reveals. "There were so many things that motivated me forward that I didn't notice it was the hardest work I've ever done. Gruelling in a sense: just the hours, and the amount of time required to be there; the amount of work. And, other than meeting people at conventions, you know, [there was] not much reward in those terms. We were always 'science fiction', you know, and the middle child of Star Trek. So it was an odd place to be."

[...]

"I wept the last day, terribly," explains Visitor. "I didn't want to leave, I didn't want it to be over. I would have signed on for more years. So getting some distance, that's why it was surprising to me that [the sheer workload and lack of rewards were] what I realised. Boy, I don't think I could do it again!" she admits. "Thank God for the experience, but I don't think I could do it again."

In the full interview, Visitor also talks about how she liked DS9's resolution, and her own career outside Trek.
